I finally understand why there are so many problems with the Department of Health and Human Services. They have no code of ethics, literally! Being a single parent, I have to deal with DHHS frequently. I was there this week to get another form (endless process) for the department to eventually lose. While I was standing in line for a half hour, no exaggeration, I was talking to the other unfortunate people waiting for questions to be answered. The woman behind me pointed to an enlarged form on the wall titled "Code of Ethics." This poster is framed and hung nicely. As we read the code, we realized that there are very few ethics on this form that hold true as you try to make your way through the system. We both laughed as we read because many people are being mistreated and the atmosphere is not very friendly since you have to talk to people through bullet-proof glass. She mentioned that she never saw this before and was wondering if we could get a printed out version of these ethics to ponder. As my turn approached, I requested my form and then I decided to ask for my copy of the Department's Code of Ethics. The woman, behind the bullet-proof glass looked at me a little befuddeled and responded, "We don't have anything like that here." I said, "Thank you" and went on my way. Now I finally understand why things don't happen the way they should through the Department of Health and Human Services, they simply do not have any code of ethics with in the work environment. It is only in place for the frustating people in line. Maybe they should replace the unused Code with a nice picture that would do more good than a meaningless list of ethics that the workers seem to know nothing about.
I always enjoyed making people uncomfortable with my art. This has resulted in two of my pieces being set on fire and burnt to a crisp by the people that were the most affected by the artwork.
