Or OP could have put her automatic wheelchair in drive while she was asleep. Or OP could have taken her oxygen tank (if she had one) and dunked it in the toilet while asleep. Or OP could have just driven her into the mens bathroom and left her sleeping there. HOLY CRAP IM AN EVIL GENIUS!
Should've "accidentally" bumped into her wheelchair. So she would have awoken.
Naaa, even old folks should and can show some respect towards other people. If someone treats me with disrespect I usually have a hard time to be respectful in return, no matter how old he or she is. I agree, getting old sucks and I can understand why some old people are frustrated. I am even willing to serve as a lightning rod for their frustration - to a point. But being a nurse I´ve met my share of old people who are just assholes, plain and simple. And I am often under the impression that those people were jerks all their life.
Show more patience towards old people. Who knows we might be like them someday - Cranky and irritated. Now, If a teenager was verbally abusive instead, I wouldn't be that patient.
#20 I am talking about patience not respect, two different things. You don't have to respect someone automatically just coz they are old. All I am saying is I prefer to be a little patient with them since they are usually restricted by their physical and mental abilities at that age.
Couldn't you hang it behind the counter and maybe write a little note to say you found one for her, if you just popped it in her hand she would see it when she woke up. Was she alone or did she have a carer with her? If the latter then give details to the carer advising you put it aside. You never know, she might even stop being grumpy and thank you!
Put the jacket on her and park her next to a mannequin! When someone inquires just say it's part of a new clothing line for the handicapped.
Ugh I just noticed how rash I came across. Please note, no ill will to the disabled. My best friend through childhood is permanently disabled from a gymnastics accident (he missed the mat as he came off a technique from rings) so not trying to come across hard on the handicapped.
