Discussions are under way, but the threads are too relevant to be locked, so they are being re-opened.

I'm often accused of acting like I don't care






It's not an act!!

yes, I will try, but will not allow others to use this forum to promote anarchy
If everyone stayed in coronavirus would not be able to spread and people would not die.

My job has completely changed since the lockdown began as has our organisations direction. I mean we helped people, the vulnerable and the elderly particularly before all this hit us but these last 2 weeks have been insane and I've never stopped. Squeezed in to my daily routine now I have to deliver meals on top of food bags and picking food stuffs up from here there and everywhere to distribute. I'm basically a food courier now until further notice. Things crop up each day that makes me think well.. It's worth it. Today an old lady answered the door, must be knocking on 90 and I gave her her spag bol. Oh I said, we also got loads of cheese sandwiches from Morrisons would you like one for your tea maybe? Ohhh I love cheeses sandwiches she said. It's the way she said it and the smile on her face. Job done. I think I made a difference there. Then I met this other bloke who I handed 2 food bags to. I have no idea what is in this bags. Anyway this chap had run out of sugar 2 days ago. I opened the bags but sadly no sugar. Not a problem I said I will be back when I drop of the rest of the food bags and bring you your sugar. Oh you don't have to do that he said. I said we'll see.. His face when I turned up with 5 1kg bags of sugar 1/2 hour later I tell you. Just a couple of positives from my day today there.

Great work Wilsden, people like you will help the elderly cope with this emergency and as you’ve said a “thank you” and a smile makes it all worthwhile

Neither will I ..if I see it I'll let you know...Not happened yet though
I don't like staying at home
When the moon is bleeding red
Woke up stoned in the backseat from a dream where my teeth fell out of my head
Cut it up, cut it up, yeah
Everybody's on something here. My God send chemical best friend. Skeleton whispering in my ear

You are the essence of volunteering and service. You should be really proud of yourself sir. I appreciate the heck out of you. :tup:
