The old lady walked across the square carrying two bags of groceries towards the group of young people. As she neared they exchanged greetings. Whilst doing so the handles on one her bags broke and her groceries fell to the floor.
She probably cussed, I couldn’t hear and I was amazed to see several of the youths rush to her aid, ensuring she was steady on her feet and begin to pick her groceries up off the floor. One of the older of the group remonstrated with the younger ones about their cycles laying on the floor. These cycles were removed from their position on the ground. What amazed me even further was that four of the youths assisted to carry the old lady’s shopping across the square and into a road that lead off the square, presumably to her home. They returned after several minutes. When they returned to the group they were not the subject of ridicule or open piss taking but they carried on as before as though none of this had happened.
I was very surprised but none the less pleased to see that respect of this nature was still in existence.
Now where do you think this took place ?
