Subject: RE: Ignorant old people
My wife is a bit off-colour right now. Nothing serious just a bad cold. So although I hate shopping and am most impatient when I do I went out yesterday with a list of requirements.
I was buying some fruit in a greengrocers in town.As I approached the counter with my purchases a lady of similar age (old) to me approached at the same time. We both stood back and motioned for the other to go first.
Eventually I waved to her to go and said " Ladies First "....and then joking added, " there are still some ladies left in our World".
She smiled, thanked me and said " and some gentlemen too ".
I had a slightly lighter step as I trudged over the frozen ground to complete my tasks.
Is it a case of be nice to others...........????
