Prison attitude reduced me to failure from M

In response to the post by Ady (below) I had 2 jobs through an agency when I was released from prison but was dismissed because I still had the prison attitude and basically couldn't cut it.
I totally get where Ady is coming from about the balance but in prison you are pretty much fending for yourself so the rehabilitation aspect isn't working especially re: the drugs culture inside and so on. However I am back in full time employment with less of an attitude and doing pretty good at the moment. If offenders are intending to turn their lives around then they have to adhere to rules because the outside and the workforce is full of them. Cheers, M.
