As I exited the shopping centre yesterday I approached a car with major damage down one side

A lady was putting her shopping in the boot and I said to her, "That damage looks very recent?"
"Yes, I came out of the centre with my shopping and someone had hit my car, they left their details but how does one know if they are correct"?
The lady said she was 85 years old, and her husband had died recently of Alzheimer's and she was all alone now.
She said that several people had passed by but no one stopped to enquire etc.
We spoke for half an hour as I could tell she simply wanted to talk and was maybe a little lonely.
So often the elderly are ignored and it does sadden me when I think of how many elderly people are living alone. Their only human contact being when they go shopping.
Taking time out of our "Busy" lives to talk to older people can be very rewarding and it may/will brighten their day to think that they are worthy of someone's attention.

Good Man. Love talking to older people, that often have lots to say and some interesting tales to say. One of the issues in the UK is that we have a scourge of scummy scammers that prey on elderly people and more are becoming worried about approaches from strangers in day to day life.

Well done though

[@11430,TheSunisout] Yes, people do not think of that reality?
I doubt that I will reach 85.
Another 26 years? Me thinks not 🥺 🙂
