Just a light hearted post here. I attend a great BI group each week been on days out and go to an allotment with them sometimes. The staff there are easy to get on with can have a laugh with them, but they have always made it clear to everyone while we are there they are responsible for us which I can understand even tho we are all capable of looking after ourselves the staff have explain as it’s a charity they run to help people with BI they are careful to make sure nothing happens as it would effect them being able stay open. Today we was at an allotment all helping doing bits. A few of us were helping the man who set the group up join some wood together he had hammered few nails in then asked if any of us wanted a go, so I said I’d do one to which he insisted I put some gardening gloves on for. I asked if it was really needed but he insisted I needed to. Would anyone else really specially put gloves on to knock a nail in? Also when this man had knocked nails in just before me he hadn’t worn gloves. Not big issue but slightly annoying tho did joke with him after about there being one rule for him and another for us. Really I think he’s probably over cautious cos the charity means so much to him, but seriously if you hit you fingers with hammer it’s going to hurt with or without gloves and I’m definitely not the sort of person to blame others for me hurting myself.
Overcautious or what?: Just a light hearted post... - Headway
