Just remember, it could be you one day

Bouquets and brickbats

To the lady who stood behind me at Shopper’s as I helped my friend with her debit card and shouted “people who have debit cards should know how to use them,” my friend has the start of dementia and we should not open our big mouths if we don’t have all the facts. 

Your turn may be next and you might not even know your card from the hole you seem to have in your head. 

Keep your opinion to yourself, I didn’t see any fires anywhere, go to another lineup. 

Everyone nowadays seem to be in a big rush going nowhere.

Where is the compassion and understanding — remember you may be next and even worse. 

What a world.
