The 2019 New Years God-Shot.
As I was standing in line at a Dept. store in Auburn, purchasing some Tea Candles for a meditation group, an elderly lady came up behind me with her cart. I didn't really pay much more attention to it at the moment, but placed the little red divider on the belt so she could put her items on the conveyor. She then stated "Thank you, but I'm not lifting this up there." I noticed that she had a single item, and it was a vacuum cleaner. I smiled, clearly she was mcuh older than I thought originally and would have trouble lifting it out of her cart. As I was paying for my candles, she asked the cashier if we would call someone to help her load it into the trunk of her car, and I decided to just give her a hand with it myself. On the way out of the store she thanked me and stated that todays youth would just as soon run you over as give any help. Made me kind of sad that she has experienced this. Nonetheless, it was a short trip to her car and as I was lifting the vacuum, she offered to hold my candles, which I accepted, they were far less heavy, and were proving to be a mild hindrence, she asked me what they were for. I explained that I was a Drug and Alcohol Counselor and that they were for a meditation group I was performing later that evening. I heard a noise from this woman, and I wasn't quite sure what to make of it, it could have been a snort of disgust, a cough, or just simply a sigh, it's sometimes hard to decipher Old People Noises
