All respect went out the window

I have just witnessed a lady I was picking up from the Deluxe Bingo on the seafront have a very bad fall.

While several people rushed to her aid, including the staff of the Deluxe, one man stood with a woman taking photos of the incident.

I asked this person, I will not call him a gentleman, to stop taking photos. He ignored me. A young man who had been assisting the lady then asked him to stop.

The person’s reply was that he was a professional photographer and would take what photos he liked in the street. May I just say that all humanity and respect went out of his window. He showed no respect for the elderly lady.

Maybe it’s time to think before you act people, how would you feel if the roles were reversed?

I hope you are local and read this – I’d like to know why?

Many thanks to all who helped my customer.
