On Friday my 2 lovely Christines took me to the pics to see a wonderful new film,
The Lady in the Van…what a marvellous film…I highly recommend it…
But before we went in to the cinema, my hubby dropped me off in a small disabled car park close to the venue.
Well, we met THE most awful, obnoxious and selfish man. It seemed he was more than annoyed at my being unloaded on the wheelchair lift at the bak of our van, an action which normally takes about 5 minutes. He was parked at one side of this little car park and wished to move to the other. Our van had nowhere else to be but in the middle, as all other spaces were taken. And we do need a long space to get me out.
I heard his voice as i reversed out of our van and couldnt believe his attitude.
My carers were explaining that we wouldnt be long and could he wait for a few minutes.
Oh no, he wasnt having any of that…he was a disabled man and coudnt wait. So I had my turn and I cant believe that I never actually got mad with him…but tried to plead with his better side…it became apparent he didnt have one!
Look , we are both disabled and know how difficult our lives are. We can do without this aggro, surely. He continued his tirade by telling me he has a new heart, cancer in his prostate and in his knee. I told him that is awful,and that I can neither walk nor stand at all.
I even held out the olive branch to him and appealed to his better side…but as i said before, he clearly doesnt have one at all. He told me he had been an ambulance driver for 30 years and had never seen such imcompetent driving as my hubbys!!!
There was no quietening this buffoon…this silly, sad man.
The conversation ended with my hubby telling him he didnt have to answer to him and my sister said she hoped he didnt live long to feel anymore grief, his reply was
Eee dear me! This bovver from a local resident…and then all that senseless bloodshed in Paris.
What a world with ignorant people like him and them in it, eh?
There…subject vented…back to being considerate…easy for me!
