...and pretty damned depressed. :yellowlaugh:
… and are spending a lot of money. Our "news" paper is over $500 a year, but it has half the pages of a grocery store tabloid.

Addendum - No one in my family subscribes. It's just too expensive, and it's a Liberal rag. I heard that they are going to have the USPS carriers deliver the paper. Now all their former delivery people will be looking for new employment.

Wish he lived in my neck of the woods. NYC construction workers have no frickin' clue how to pave a road. Maybe they do, but they like to pretend a tiny stretch of road takes them 18 months to get done.

Just because a random thought popped into your head, doesn't mean it should be a thread.

ENOUGH

Some people just don't have anybody else to talk to. I get it but I also get the 84 year old woman patient I had when I was working physical therapy who used to ask me to sit and hold her hands and talk for the 15 minutes we were supposed to be doing exercises. Sometimes the best therapy we can give is to listen.

Trump fixed your skating rink...maybe if NYC asked him politely, he could help with the streets. 💣

When I wore a younger man's clothes I really enjoyed listening to the stories seasoned citizens spoke. It was a win-win. I learned what it was like for them once and they enjoyed the company.

100% bigburly

Holding her hand listening/hearing her, making her comfortable has alot of gravity... being sincere
,, maybe getting her to laugh just a tiny bit could make her day.
there's a point you give her a grin & say 'how about we do the theraband a little'

There was a huge controversy many years back involving Trump and our mayor back then. Trump boasted that if he was in charge, he could get the roads fixed in half the time it normally took the city to do it. Upset, our mayor took him up on that challenge. The Teamsters Union was upset with Trump too. So they too agreed to let him try. Both of them expecting Trump to fail miserably. Well, he was given a long stretch of road. Brought in his own construction crew, and then came up with the sheer brilliant idea of incentivizing them.

The earlier you finish, the more money I pay all of you in bonuses.

Forget half the time. It took them 1/3 the time. Instead of several years, the project was done in months! Both the mayor and the union looked like exactly what they are in NYC.... Greedy, corrupt fools!

Needless to say, no mayor since has taken Trump up on his offers. Also, the road was inspected after completion and found to be within regulations. Unfortunately everything with the mayor's office and the Teamsters went back to business as usual, afterwards.
