No colors; only gray or tan or white.
14. Dont be surprised if prior to leaving the house, he hands
you his drivers license. Ask him where he is going, & either fill out a 3by3

he returns, demand the pass be turned in. If he doesnt have it, fill out form

the store clerks.
18. Beforehand, arrange with clerk to accept list of items,
which he is to fill. No items may be bought that are in a can, a glass jar, or
has a metal lid. The clerk is to adamantly refuse to add new items or to substitute
for outof-stock items.
19. Whenever returning from a visit, your
felon will expect to be stripped search. Be sure to search carefully his clothes,
and to tell him to, Lift your nut sack and spread them.

coat with a slit in its lining. When out with him, pay attention to the way he
eyes liftable restricted items.
21. In the late afternoon or when returning home, your felon
will place a flimsy folding chair in front of the television, then drape his shirt over its back. Dont touch the shirt!
22. Your felon watches only splatter films and sports. If you manage to get the channel changer from him, select the same.
23. If perchance, he finds you watching Public Broadcasting
or the Arts and Entertainment Network, there is, even if you change the station, a 93% chance that he will grumble epithets
such as: For faggots! Sucks! Asshole! In your mouth! And there is a 7% chance he will simply flex his muscles, glare, and
grab the channel changer.
24. If you are wishing sexual delight, put on mens clothing,
then say in a gruff voice, Let us take a shower, now.
25. In the shower he will expect you to submit to both oral and anal sex. Fortunately, he will be quick
26. Having never looked for employment,
he will expect to be handed a job assignment.
27. Your felon believes that all employees pocket
items, charge extra for deluxe service, and also for certain extra work. Collectively this is known as the hustle.
28. Based upon his prison work experience, steer him to jobs
that require mere presence, such as directing traffic at a roadconstruction site.
29. You should accompany your felon on trips to government
offices, just to show him that it isnt a waste of time. For years he had been
told by staff in prison: (a) too busy, come back tomorrow (the day Mr.-So-And-So is off); (b) it is Mr. SoAndSos task;
(c) were out of forms; (d) I dont know the answer, Ill find out next week; (e) cant because of regulations; (f) my office
is up stair, where the form are; see me there (hes rarely there).
30, Much worse than the staff are the guards. Thus he will naturally avoid encountering those wearing
a uniformstimulus generalization.
31. Dont feed him beans. Warn others who are indoors with him, that has developed, because there were no unoccupied spaces, the
habit of easenthemout.
32. You may politely make suggestion, but never order or
angrily take offenseexcept when acting the role of a guard. Any confrontation
by an equal will be considered a matter of honor, for which the resolution often is bloody.

even use the shitter while others are washing up. Warn others to expect and accept

he believes that next to nothing will be taught and the class will be baby-sat by a former student. But if you offer schooling
as a substitute for work, he will take it.
35. Remember we learn through socialization,
and his has been the federal gladiator school. Their customs are quite different. He will consider his customs more valid than yours.
Each society holds on to its traditions, and members seek out likes.
36. His companions will be those shaped by like experiences,
not his old friends. Thus he will bring home a group of seedy, foul-mouthed criminals.
37. Dont expect civility; it is offensive to gladiators. There is an aversion for weakness, civility, and femininity, for they have consistently
been negatively reinforced by the prison population. Be strong and tough, like
him. Dont expect romantic signs, such as roses, curtseys, hugs and kisses. The cause for the high failure rate of renewed relationships is the failure of the
wife to adapt.
38. Change will come gradually over years, but never
completely. You must adapt and endure; better yet, act like him.
39. Remember, as every
simpleton knows: Chain a dog to a tree and you make him vicious. Now that your dear has been freed to live with
you, good luck.
