Margaret Cook from Surrey sent in this heart-warming tale:
I had an interesting experience at the hospital today. I was just collecting my prescription at the pharmacy counter, when I saw a frail old woman in a hospital gown standing behind me in the queue, an empty pill canister gripped tightly in her pale, trembling claw.
I asked if she was OK and she said that she was feeling unwell. Of course without further ado, I pinched her nose and forced her to take some of my prescription pills. She didn’t seem to know what was going on, but gulped down the tablets with a swig of my Irn Bru. I didn’t stick around to see what happened next, but I’d hope someone would do the same for me one day.
I was happier for having shown kindness to her.
