Time to Read – 1 Minutes, and a few scary seconds
Perhaps a rare thing these days
I witnessed it when I was in Scotland visiting my parents last week – my dad is just out of a three month stay in hospital after breaking his leg. He is 90, and now very infirm.
He can only walk with the aid of a Zimmer frame, and is hard of hearing.
Understandably, he wanted to get out for a while, so he decided to go and pay for the newspapers.
When we arrived at the shop, it was busy. We waited our turn, and then my dad and I reached the front. I won’t go into details of the transaction, but it was complicated – a long queue formed, and…
…And then I realised – no-one in the queue was complaining, quite the reverse…and the man behind the counter was so very understanding, attentive and kind.

You made my dad’s day – thank you
With my love and best wishes
Who are you going to be kind to, today?
