Little frail old lady roughly late 80'5 - early 90's
I mean falling ill in the middle of a crowded Icelands store. Don't you realize I have shopping to do, Places to go, People to see.
I mean surely you'd be better off taking ill on the street alone! So now I will rush past you rolling my eyes, Tutting and generally being annoyed at my misfortune of taking 5 minutes longer!
NO! no of course I didn't say or do this but plenty did, And quite frankly it's annoyed me.
I mean what if it were their Nan there surely they'd help right?!
So I walk into Icelands and a little old lady approaches me ' Excuse me darling I really don't feel well I think I'm going to faint'
'Ok love stay with me I'll get you help' came my reply
So I held onto her whilst alerting a member of staff, Requesting a chair and some water which they supplied.
All the while this frail old lady kept saying to me 'Why are you doing this for me, Why are you being so kind to me' To which my reply came 'Because I want to you are unwell and I'm going to help you' Poor love couldn't thank me enough whilst at the same time she was confused, so confused as to why I would take time out of my day to help her.
Now maybe I'm from another planet and lets face it I could well be, But isn't it common courtesy and morals to stop and help? so my journey took 5 minutes longer but you know what?.... I got my shopping, got my lunch and got home in one piece no catastrophe happened.
It really upset me how inconsiderate others can be, But I know that in this lady's time of need, I stopped and helped so my conscience is clear.
