OIE!!

I am just popping this little ditty in here because today I felt to invisible. As I walked into town today I was pushed to the side by a woman with a pushchair, then a young man on his phone walked straight across my path forcing me to stop sharply. I am sick of people on bikes riding the pavements     ( side walks) nearly pushing me on to the road. I am not going to bore you with what happened in the supermarkets. I am not going to bore you any more but it just made we feel so invisible and worthless.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is something I have to say. People ignore me each and every day. Am I so insignificant that they don’t see me do I just get in the way?

I really think that it’s not fair that they treat me as if I were not there.I know I am past my prime not very tall and because I use a walking stick I need more time! So when you are rushing round the town with your pushchair or your shopping trolly look out for me don’t knock me down.

am I invisible ?

Strolling  round on your phone deep in conversation don’t ignore me and make me stop sharp for your lack of consideration. If you knock me over through lack of concentration .It is not so easy for me to get back up on my feet you see??

Riding your bikes on the pavement ( sidewalk) may save you time as up the down road you can go . Spare a though for folk  like me who can’t  move out your way quickly.

Trundling round blind corners in the supermarket  my feet and hips are not where you need to park it! Young people walking three abreat

I may have lost my shine and my magnetic attractions are no longer as keen. I am still me I am still a person I do my best and I deserve to be seen.
