Tuesday the 12th of December

I went to the mall to get a few things at Harts today.  While I was in the mall heading towards the CityCenter, I saw  a man about 35 asking many people for a quarter and not one person helped him. He must have asked at least 10 people.

As I progressed into the City Center, I found out from looking down on the bottom floor that Solomon, the head of security, was escorting this fellow out of the mall.

This man was not harrassing anybody, asking very politely and even when people refused him, he wished them a Merry Christmas but not in a sarcastic tone of voice.

He was not drunk nor disorderly.  People are becoming more and more selfish.  Most people can spare a quarter surely?

Even if they couldn't, would it hurt to be polite to this fellow instead of just ignoring him like he was invisible?

As you can see, I am somewhat upset with the selfish behaviour of some people.

He got ahead of me and I could not catch up with him.  I had enough money with me to buy him a coffee which I intended to do.  It is a very cold day today.  Anybody can be down on their luck, and nobody knows what their future holds.  Could it be one day that they too may need a little help?

Would they like it if they were treated as an invisible person?

I think not!

On that note, I shall sign off for today. Have a good day. Looking forward for our annual luncheon at the Club with our group of friends.

Thanks for dropping by.
