I have to walk my little Jack Russell before I leave for work otherwise he barks and the neighbours complain. The walk gets shorter and shorter every day as I struggle to do it.
I nearly always see this woman who I used to stand and talk to at the bus stop as she waited for her bus (when I could walk that far).
This morning I had walked about 20 steps, everyone of them sheer agony as I hurt from top to bottom, when along comes this woman and says "alright Lynne". Yeah, says me as I try not to compain. "I know" she say's "I know". I said I don't think you do. Oh I do she says I ache today, and she went charging off up the road. I was left speechless thinking Ache ?
I wish I just ached, every inch of me is in pain today and I was going off to my full time job and she was going to her little cleaning job and then going home for the rest of the day.
To think I'm paying towards helping her to be able to work part time with my taxes makes me sick.
I don't think I can be civil to her any more and will have to take the dog out a bit later.
Rant over, thanks for listening.
