Obviously, yours truly survived the “upper management” inspection. There is a weblog commentary here. The things can be an extreme inconvenience. The time frame was from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It’s usually declared that the resident does not need to be present, but anyone with good sense is going to make every effort to be “in” when some stranger is going through their place. And, in view of a case such as the one at hand where a scooter is usually used to get around, something like re-charging it is out of the question.
So, tomorrow morning the scooter will be “dead.” Just as there was no trip to the lobby this noontime, none’s expected come tomorrow as the scooter will be in re-charge. There was one today promptly at 5:00 p.m. While that’s not a good time, there was one benefit it provided: while sitting there what was seen was that a young man, possibly someone known to some resident but also possibly not so, pulled his car up to the dumpster and started going through trash. The dumpster isn’t visible from the street.
As the scooter couldn’t be re-charged last night due to some need to prepare for possible visitors again, and there wasn’t anything to go far on today, naturally several things hoped for didn’t get done, such as looking into someone going to the bank for some money. A few dollars are still in hand, and the homemaker aide can be given a check next week again, but cash is better for her. It saves a good fifteen minutes in time spent at the bank. And, it sure isn’t wise to have her carry around extra cash. Well, tomorrow is near.
Old people shouldn’t be upset.
