When Charlie Cooper came to XL Girls, she was working as a CNA, a certified nursing assistant and she told some funny stories about that.
"The old guys. They love me. The old farm men are the worst. And you know, I wear big scrubs and it never fits. One of my favorites--he was so sweet--but boy, he had the biggest crush on me. I would go into his room at night to check on him, and I would lean over and see his hand slowly coming up from under the covers.
"One day he caught me in the hallway and told me he needed help. I asked him with what, and he said he wanted me to come to his room later. He said he had plans for us, and it was going to start off with a sexy massage. I said, 'Carl, but you have a wife!' And he goes, 'And I'm going to give you the massage without your shirt on.' Then I told him I had to go."
And their wives?
"They don't care. Their wives could be standing outside and you could be in there dressing them, and they don't care. They have no shame. They'll drop their walker so you have to bend over to pick it up, and they'll try to grab at you. I had one old man who was so pervy. I was trying to dress him and put him back in his wheelchair. And he kept grabbing at me. I asked him what he was doing and he said, 'I was just trying to help you hold them up.' I was like, 'It's okay, I got it covered!' Thanks, but no thanks! I gave them actual baths in shower stalls. I think that is their favorite time of day. I really do, because there are a bunch of cute, young girls working there. And they never want the men to sponge them down, that's for sure!"
