My friend Brett has been to over 30-40 treatment centers. At first they were nice and then they just became extensions of the jails he was coming from. Towards the end of the road, he found himself back in treatment 37 years old, with a few days clean. At this particular facility they allowed the clients to play basketball outside in the req yard. On his first day there he saw a school of baby ducks, he went inside to get some bread and started feeding them. When they went back inside he was pulled into the directors office with 3 other staff members. They sat him down and said “we know what you did”, Brett looked back at them confused “um what did I do?”. They said “we saw you, you fed the ducks”. Bret started laughing “this is what this is about?? Cause I fed some fucking baby ducks... who cares!”. The director stood up and said “its a city ordinance that we don’t feed the ducks. There’s a sign out there that says ‘please don’t feed the ducks’, technically you’re breaking the law. Brett laughed again and said ‘wow, you people are REALLY crazy, I don’t need this shit”
But Brett was looking at jail time, in order to stay the director forced him to write an apology letter to everyone about feeding the ducks. Brett stood up in front of the community and real sarcastically said “I’m SOOOOO SORRY for feeding the ducks ! I must of lost my mind. It must be my addiction. I have done many terrible things in my life but THIS, this is one of the worst! Please accept my apology. 
LOVE, Brett.”
He laughed and everyone laughed and he went back into his room. He was there for 30 days, his therapist recommended he go to a halfway house, get an aftercare plan and at least go to meetings. Brett said “yea, yea, sure sure, ofcourse”
But ofcourse Brett did none of those things and He ended up getting an apartment with some other guy in there and they did a credit card scam together and end up getting arrested. Brett does another year and a day in prison. 
a year later back at the same treatment center, the director walks in and recognizes him right away and says “ah! Brett! Good to see you again ! Try not to feed the ducks this time.”
