I’m the one who should be relegated to the 9th circle of hell — oh, I meant the 7th circle. This region of hell is for those who perpetrate violence against old people. After two days of tirade against the old lady who charges me with forcing her down a flight of steps with my help, I have shed my defenses. I went through the stages of feelings and came out on the other end, which includes the understanding of where she might be coming from. This means putting myself in her shoes (orthopedic). She’s merely being proactive, yes, in gathering information regarding this farce. No? Well, God forbid, some slowly developing crack in her ass should develop as we both landed on our asses when we fell – no, no, another crack — I assume that she has one crack already. This would be very expensive to repair. So she might have to sue the organization for medical coverage. Yeah, that’s, it probably.
Seriously, I hope she’s okay. It can be dangerous to fall when you’re old. A lot of old people go rapidly down hill after falling – oh God I’m scared now. What if she, should… A-anyway, this incident was educational. I learned about the dangers of helping a stranger, and I learned how my own self-centered fear had me imagining this poor woman in a boiling pot of oil.
