What was meant to be a leisurely stroll with my more-expensive half along the beachfront yesterday, turned into half an hour of soaking in the rain followed by about 2 hours of journey back home.
While on the way back, I saw a man helping a blind old woman onto the train carriage. A few minutes into the journey, as the station approached, she began walking towards the exit door. Fearing that she could miss her step and hurt herself, I gently tapped her shoulder and told her that the carriage was yet to come to a proper halt. And then she did something that amazed me. She took out her cane, dangled it outside the moving carriage and let it chatter against the pavement. At the precise moment that the carriage came to a halt and the chatter stopped, she alighted, took a smart tun and disappeared in to the crowd.
