Matthew Feeney 35 Lines A compilation of actual conversations with My MSOP Guardians So, you’re new to treatment... With all due respect, I completed 3 years of treatment before I arrived here Which is why we put you right into Phase 2 But you give Phase 2’s to everyone, even people who refuse to do treatment Well, anyway, you are beginning Phase 2... I was actually finishing Phase 2 before... ready for Phase 3 But the records show you haven’t completed any of our required tests I completed and passed 2 maintenance polygraphs, I’m ready for my Full Disclosure test We want you to take another maintenance poly first, just to get comfortable with the room I’m willing to do that as long as it doesn’t delay my Full Disclosure test It’s not called “Full Disclosure” anymore it’s now “Detailed Sexual History” No matter what it’s called, I completed and presented that at your other program You need to redo the paperwork again, here it is Okay, but uhm, it appears as if this is the wrong paperwork You’re arguing with us an awful lot I’m advocating for myself You rebut everything we say I try to correct factual errors before they become documented as facts See, you’re doing it again. Oops. Sorry, I’ll work on that. We think you need more time in treatment first But I’m not getting more treatment, I’m just repeating classes I already passed You still need to complete 3 steps before you get advanced I’m ready, willing and able to do those 3 things to get advanced You know Treatment’s more than a “to-do” check-list to complete But you’re the one who said I need to do these 3 things to go to Phase 3! Your sense of entitlement is slowing your progress in treatment You’re right, I’m so sorry Now you’re just placating us to get ahead No, I’m not... Now you’re arguing again I’m not arguing! Yes you are. I give up!! See, we were right (muffled groan)
