i walked to the local shops this morning. walking along and my phone rang, i answered it and a voice said ” sir, a quick survey on behalf of youi insurance, ok said i ask away ” are you between the ages of 25 and 75″ “no, older than that” “sorry, you are too old”. and rung off,
one of my errands was to the post office, on the way out a bloke held the door for me, i said thankyou” he said “you’re right pop”
It’s been a real eye opener for me the last 2 months. After a fall in March, I’ve been using a walking frame, and am utterly delighted wherever I go. Young and older rush to help me through doors etc. The smiles I get from people as I successfully negotiate aisles, as they wait to see if I’m ok brighten my day.
