Smile, Nod, and Ignore

Human Resources at VBW asked me to sign a waiver so they could obtain all my medical records. I don't think so...

thank god - good call - I am surprised how MANY people want access to medical records then looked shocked when you ask them "Why?" and then go, "Well, we need them to help you."

"Why not talk to me."

"Liability!"

"Talk to me?"

"Company requirement!"

Me: "Oh go away!"

Yes, it's amazing how many entities think they're entitled to private information about people with disabilities, information far beyond what's actually needed.

I have no reason to exhibit the kind of mutual trust I would with most people since they've broken that already.

I can't even trust the people I have normally asked for friendly advice because they may have other obligations to disclose what they learn.
