The prison in which Eliza is serving her time is on lockdown. An inmate escaped with the assistance of a guard eight days ago and is still on the run.
One would think that since I take the boys down for monthly visits, that out of deference, Eliza would have informed me of this. I would have been steamed had I driven four hours round trip for her August visit and not been allowed.
Jazmine’s mom wrote today warning me of the lockdown. Eliza also wrote the boys today, too. She very well could have included a note for me to share this information.
I do not watch the news on a regular basis and missed the airing of the escape. It was actually Tasha who informed me of this—go figure! She said she watched the broadcast to make sure that the escapee wasn’t Eliza coming to do me harm!!!
I have called only a couple of times before driving down, but honestly, most of the time I don’t think about it or I just forget to do so.
Courtesy, it is as simple as that. But sadly, I think once again, I am expecting more than she is willing to give.
