Good early Afternoon El, and ALL..No intention of 'stirring it' but had to think
how in anoher settng this fellow would be lucky
to be alive today.
On the news this morning,in England, a burglar was apprehended by the 69yr old grandmother whose
house he had in mind to rob..far from giving in to him, she locked him in the garden shed and called the police. As he was high on drugs, and hungry, he raided the bird food and consumed a far amount of seed including insects and worms.
Got to hand it to this lady....don't mess with old ladies!
Fair play to her El,
And bless her quick thinking..
Interesting.. Along similar lines,
a radio disc jockey asked his listeners
last Monday what they would do in the following circumstances..
He had been in a store on Sunday, he told, getting drinks for
his kids, when he witnessed a guy buying a Sunday newspaper,
when the sales assistant wasn't looking,
the same guy pocketed 2 ice creams.. paid for his paper
but not the ice creams.
The radio guy wanted to know whether he should have
alerted the store owner, there & then...
But on thinking it through, he said,
the thief might take it out on him then ...
or later, break into his house and cause harm to
his family, so he reasoned, it wouldn't be worth
for the sake of two ice-creams being stolen by a stranger,
Yet he admitted to having felt guilty that he did zero about it.
He asked on radio what others would do...
In the circumstances.
Lots of calls came in with varying opinions;
mine would have been,
to phone the store owner afterwards and tell him
what I witnessed, explaining that I had no wish to get involved more
But to be on the alert as to what's going on.
What would you folks do?
