I hate injustice of any kind and can't abide being around people who 'tear to shreds' anyone who isn't around at that moment. Yesterday such a horrible injustice took place.. I wasn't there but was so hurt for the people involved. A lovely couple used to walk with the walking group... the lady has dementia which has gotten progressively worse. They hadn't walked in the group for ages as they do other things. Yesterday they turned up to walk with the group and were pretty much ignored by everyone. In the café the lady's husband set up the table and chairs for everyone (the way he had done in the past) the rest of the walking group completely ignored them and sat somewhere else. I am told that the gentleman told the group what he thought of them.. and it wasn't pleasant. I won't be walking with that group again and will simply walk with a couple of friends. I got in touch with the gentleman and have invited them over for a cuppa. My garden is safe for the lady to sit in and she might find the goldfish in my garden pond are a relaxing thing to look at. I hope that the walking group reflected on their behaviour last night... I hope they feel ashamed of themselves.
