Stressed

Last night I went to the theatre. Yes, one does lower ones self to mingle with the masses occasionally :-S

With everyone leaving the car park at the same time there was a queue to get out on to the main road. When it came our turn near the junction I noticed two blind girls, arm in arm with white sticks, stood by the kerb as if they were waiting to cross the road. Realising no one was going to give way to let them cross I asked my wife to ask if they wanted to cross. Yes they said. So now I took the bullet between the teeth, got out, waved to those behind that I wont be long and proceeded to cross them over the road. Despite impatient idiots passing our car whilst in the middle of the road, one did put up their hand and apologise, I managed to get across to the other side. I then asked if they will be ok from now on. Then with a stammer one said they didn't want to cross the road, they were waiting for a taxi .... Arghhhhhhh!!!!

I then had to run the gauntlet of trying to get them back to the other side again and yet more cars, despite the girls were obviously blind, refused to stop.

By this time I was highly stressed and if I could have got hold of any of those drivers by the throat last night I wouldn't be here typing this. I'd either be in hospital or the nick for GBH >:-(

I did remark to Her Ladyship "never again" :-( I'll do like everyone else did and mind my own business :-S

So why did they answer yes to your wife when he asked if they wanted to cross the road? Confused it is I am!

 

D.

 

You're confused probably because my wife isn't a 'he' :-) She's definitely a 'she' and has all of her lady pieces in the right places (lol)

 

To answer your question is to say I simply don't know why they said yes when my wife asked if they wanted to cross but luckily my hearing is still ok so I heard them myself with my own tabs :-S

......did she answer "half past ten, dear" ;-)

 

 

I'd have to be quick because it was 10.15 when we were leaving 8-)

She knows all it would take to persuade me otherwise was just before retiring to the boudoir is to give me my Horlicks and Viagra :-)

In years gone by I went to the aid of someone who I thought needed it, never again, the first was a one legged man on crutches, I offered him my seat on a bus and he gave me a right mouthful saying what do you think I am? a f****** cripple.

The other was when I saw this guy belting his wife, I went over to help her and guess what happened? she belted me over the head with her umbrella and said mind your own f****** business, never again.

A couple of months ago I stood in a long queue at supermarket, old lady at end was short when it came to pay. The young lad on till didn't know what to say to her, all others stood tutting and foot shifting as she counted the pennies out her purse and bag. "£2.20 " him say to her, I just walked down the queue and handed it to lad at till. I don't know who was more shocked the queue or the lad or the woman, but I felt good and was in a rush.

 

By the time I had paid for mine and got to door she had dashed down street to bank and got my money for me bless her! I didn't take it and told her to go get her self a coffee.

 

Last week stood in laundrette with 3 others watching traffic warden hovering around a tilers van who had parked a bit near to a corner, you could see he was desperate to book him. While he wandered off I rang the tiling company to get them to contact the driver and let him know. The rest of them in the laundrette thought that was really good of me, but not one of them would have done it, neither would anyone else I asked afterwards, they would have relished more in seeing him write a ticket. *-) *-) They both arrived back to van together and he just told him to move it up street, tiler had no idea who tipped him off.

 

Sometimes it doesn't back fire on you and you feel good for rest of day. :-D

A few years ago I happened across a young man who had collapsed in a park. People were just walking straight past him. I bent over him and asked him if he was ok? With that, his eyes opened wide and he got unsteadily to his feet.

Too late I spotted the clear plastic bag with a tube of glue inside it. He now wanted me to give him money. The other concern was that he kept standing too close to me. I held his eye and warned him twice not to stand too close to me. As I walked away he kept following me. A police car appeared in the distance (someone had called them) and the lout staggered away.

The police officers got a description from me and recognized the guy. Apparently he's always in trouble and is frequently violent. They went looking for him, but I don't know if they collared the blighter. I'd still assist someone in trouble, but would take more care to identify the nature of the problem!
