  1. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

    Okay guys (and gals!), thanks for your thoughts!   I`ll tuck it away for a "rainy day", and see if I can fetch back some other useful stuff for them with the money - loo roll or whatever   It really is very kind of them , but I don`t want it to be a financial burden on them either, if you see what I mean?

    Hi guys, not too sure what to do, so I`ll ask you, and then make a decision. Last weekend I popped a letter through the door of a few elderly neighbours, offering to do shopping, etc for them if they didn`t want to go out themselves. Absolutely no problem for me, as I work at a discounter... One couple sent back a nice letter, asking me to get about half a dozen things for them, which I did. But now they have put the payment for said goods through my letter box, plus €20 to "go to the cinema". Whilst it really is a nice gesture on their side, I feel totally awkward about it - all I wanted to do was make sure they stay home and don`t get ill, and now I feel like they are literally paying me for getting that little bit of shopping. I don`t want to offend them, but at the same time I don`t feel I can accept so  much "payment" - I was thinking more in terms of rounding up to the nearest € or so...   So, what should I do?

      Another hero in these difficult times! You can be really proud to have him as a brother, Smaug! God bless him!
  5. What are you cooking today?

      okay, thanks.

      - er, what do you do with them then? Do you need to roast them or anything?

    - I would far rather have a vet treating me, than a dentist, if I end up in hospital - if you think about it, vets treat the signs and symptoms that they see, and are actually very good at joining the dots. A dentist might be very good if you need a filling, but....

    Love you John! Somehow you have a way with words, that I will never have. We are all hoping and praying that your eye will get better, but still you find the time to think of us - thankyou! I will just second your thoughts, if I may?, because I cannot put it as well as you can!

    Since we have some elderly neighbours, and I still have to work, I just popped a letter through their postboxes, saying that if they desperately need any shopping, they should let me know.

    I have actually been on holiday from work this past week, but got called-in yesterday due to others being off sick. Whilst many customers are kind and thoughtful and happy to get out of the way, so that each shelf can be filled, there are still some people out there who, when wanting to ask a question, simply keep on coming towards us! The result being, some strange-kind of dance, where the customer approaches, the staff member takes a step backwards, and the customer another one forwards. For goodness sake people, don`t just think about keeping your distance to other customers, but also to the staff - we are NOT immune!   At the other end of the scale again, there were quite a few customers actually thanking us for being there and continuing to work and keep the store stocked-up!

    For anybody wondering, its Sarkoidose:   I agree with Jeba, and hope that the lawyer understands more than we do.

      Thanks for passing this on, Bramble. Best wishes to John and Nicole, and I sure as hell hope that it all gets better soon! Cyber hugs to both of you!!!
