Of Sid and Rick.
I felt so bad for making Sid harvest in my farm the other day. Now his wrist is sore, and he has to rest and not use it for at least two days. That means, we will miss him blogging for a while and he had to abandon farming as too much clicking action on the mouse puts a toll on his wrist.
He did tell me a funny story last night though about Rick. Those who have followed his blog knew by now that Rick is an amputee and of course carry a blue badge. One time as he was parking his car in the disabled parking area, a woman bitches at him and created a scene. She was furious why he parked there especially when she saw him walk away and obviously he doesn't look like someone with disability! She continue to make a scene that the supermarket security guards came out to check. They saw Rick took off his leg and was rubbing it while this woman didn't even notice as she was bitching all throughout and perhaps loving the attention she's getting. The guards had to asked her to leave and she was banned from ever coming to that supermarket again.
Yes, we know there are many insensitive people in this world. People who don't think before they speak. They will say whatever comes into their mind and not care even if they know they will create havoc in other people's feeeling. Oh, if only they will take time before they utter their words and give it plenty of thought, then maybe, it will save them from embarrassment and hurt feelings.
Kind words, are music to our ears, and everbody will respond to it nicely. So, before anybody speak, lets think it over first very carefully because words, when spoken cannot be taken back. It will only create hostility and what we say will only show how much we are lacking!
Get well soon, Sid. And thank you for the laughter!
