Today I had a lesson to NEVER assume others will do the right thing. I was in my real estate CE class and I noticed an older woman with a walker and a brace on her wrist entering the class and saying she needed some hot coffee. Because I’ve spent over half of my life being a caregiver, I immediately thought, “oh, no, that’s not good.” But there were so many other students in the break room I thought SURELY someone would help her out. But nope, they all walked back to their seats with their coffees and pastries. So I got up and went to the breakroom to see if she needed help. She did – not only to carry her coffee but to help herself to the provided breakfast. So I gathered her food and coffee and walked her back to the classroom. Because of her walker, she needed to sit at the end of a table and we needed to remove three or four chairs so she would be able to sit and have room for her walker. Did anyone help me as I was moving them? Nope.
I guess when people are so blinded to a human’s need for help, that explains why they are blinded to the animals. Sad. Never assume someone else will do the right thing. Do it yourself.
