Letter: The good and the bad

Recently I was in City Market. I am 82 years old and use a three-wheeled walker. I was turning into a lane to check out and had a grocery bag on each one of the handles. A young kid with a grocery cart cut me off. Not only that, his mother looked at me, raised her eyebrows and followed him in. No respect for elders?

A few days later I was at McDonald’s, and before I could even pick up my tray, a young man (not an employee) offered to carry my tray to my table. I am pleased to say there are many more people like that in GWS. I feel that pre-teen kid will never learn respect.
