We all deserve the occasional treat, Even the homeless.

We all deserve the occasional treat, 
.
Even the homeless.
.
.

This is a true story,
.
.
DISCLAIMER!
.
The story is based at local Morrisons at the centre of town.
.
However this is not in any way an attack on Morrison’s, they are in NO way responsible in my eyes for the privately held attitudes of individual members of staff.
.
I will happily shop there again,
.
BUT
.
It could have happened anywhere,
.
It is a true story that just happens to have happened at Morrisons in Redcar.
.
.
STORY START!
.
Last November 2018, I and my family stopped there to shop,
.
It was a bloody cold night and there happened to be a homeless man sitting crossed legged near (ish) the cash machines, begging.
.
My kids immediately asked if they could buy the man a hot chocolate, 
.
(Because I try and teach my kids to give a dam for the world and the people in it!) 
.
So after we have shopped I went to the instant drinks dispensing machine to get a hot chocolate for the cold homeless man outside.
.
But there are no paper cups, to put the hot drink in.
.
Now obviously I do have mental health issues and the thought that happened was probably a paranoid delusion in my own mind,
.
But at that time, the first thing I thought was, (wrong or right)
.
“Some bastard manager has taken away the paper cups to stop people buying the homeless man outside a hot drink until they can get him moved on!”
.
Again it was probably just me, being paranoid,
.
So because I am a truly stubborn little shit, I go to the party section and buy for 3£ 60p some paper cups.
.
I queue up at the tills and pay for them.
.
I get the Hot Chocolate and leave the rest of the cups there for others to use,
.
Then I go to the counter to pay for the hot chocolate,
.
The woman at the till overheard be talking to my kids about why we had purchased the hot chocolate,
.
The woman reaction was along the lines of,
.
<Obvious this only a general paraphrase, not a direct quote.>
.
“Oh, he's not there now, he has been moved on.”
.
Our family expressed a minor disappointment, 
.
Her reaction to that was, 
.
<Again! Obviously this only a general paraphrase, not a direct quote.>
.
“You should not buy stuff for him anyway,”
.
“He is a nuisance,”
.
“He was in here earlier and spent his begging money for fags,”

.
(For you Americans, that means he purchases some cigarettes.)
.
I felt a bit stunned at the passion of her negative reaction and just left peacefully.
.
.
FRENCH STEPS!
.
There is an old French expression, which I am not going to even attempt to write, but roughly translated it is,
.
“Spirit of the Stairway,”
.
It is an expression that means the following,
.
‘When you have nothing witty or cool to say at the time, but think of the perfect comeback comment much later, when it is too late to use it!
.
This is my “Spirit of the Stairway,”
.
This is what I wished I had said at the time,
.
“If you are cold and fed up outside would you not want to treat yourself?”
.
“After work, tonight are you not going to treat yourself to anything? 
.
“Not a chocolate bar, or a TV soap opera?” 
.
“A bubble bath or a favourite blanket?”
.
“Why can't someone give their morale a little boost and try and comfort themselves?!”
.
“Poor sods life must be bloody miserable in this weather!”
.
“What kind of monster are you?”
.
But I didn’t.
.
I wish I had,
.
But I did not.
.
.
EMPATHY IF NOT THE SAME AS GULLIBLE!
.
I am not an innocent, naive or stupid,
.
I know there is a good 60% to 70% chance that he actually has a home or is a drug user,
.
But I am not responsible for his actions,
.
I can only ever be responsible for my own! 
.
Any degree of chance over 4% to my mind makes it worth a punt at trying to make this totally shitty world slightly better.
.
(For Americans, By Punt, I mean “Worth a Gamble”!) 
.
If he is a lazy con man, then that is on him!
.
But as skint as I very often am, 
.
(Translation for Americans, “Skint” = “Broke”)
.
I am still not going to begrudge a cold potentially homeless person a hot chocolate if I have the time and can spare the cash.
.
I am not so skint (yet) that such an action would financially “break me”
.
So it is worth a punt,
.
I am not ever going to make any big significant changes to our world,
.
Very few of us will
.
But we can all aim for a flow of little positive “Butterfly Effects”
.
And hope all the little good bits somehow add up to mitigate, offset or somehow reduce how our crap our world now is!
.
If we cannot let ourselves have faith enough to believe that,
.
Then why bother doing any recycling at all?
.
As this is a true story there is not a clever witty or smart ending.
.
All that is left is to declare in a loud voice,
.


.
“PEOPLE ARE NOT THINGS!”
.
.
I hope that poor woman behind the counter manages to find some sort of soul in that dried up husk!
.
.
Because although we in the UK have more safeguards that a USA citizen would have
.

We are all still far closer to sleeping on the streets than most of you realise!

I DO understand AMERICAS problem

! . I DO understand AMERICAS problem, . BUT! Refusing to vote is NOT any solution! . But short of civil war and an armed uprising  (Which is VERY BAD!) The only immediate rather weak band-aid solution is to keep getting each party of this limited two-party system to only serve one term each, forever alternately. ( Never two terms in a row ) . To keep them busy doing the pretence of fighting each other, And keep them a bit off-balance as they have to swap desks and paperwork every 4 years. . THIS is all you have! . Until someone far smarter than me and you combined x10 finds a none destructive solve to this problem that would NOT cost thousands of innocent lives! . ! .

GEEK ATTACK! The support ticket I filled out for Blizzard Games.

! . The support ticket I filled out for Blizzard Games. . I have had a particularly tough year, . One small highlight was watching BlizzCon live with the virtual ticket. . So I managed, with a bit of sacrifice, to not only find the money for the (now more expensive ticket) but also £20 worth of Pizza to make the whole night a bit of a personal occasion. . But halfway through the Overwatch part of the opening ceremony, the feed kept closing, changing to the wrong language, and this kept happening to the point that it became unstable! . Yes,, while I can watch it all again later when OR if it is fixed, but it is is not the same. It has not got the same energy as seeing that opening ceremony live and hearing the cool stuff, first hand. . Maybe I put too much   store  i n this one treat to make life seem a little better at the moment, and of course part of me knows that I am overreacting, but I am just too psychologically tired now to even feel angry. . I am sorry, . But I am done. . Thi

BUT Let us assume the MCU abides by the rule that "energy cannot be created," But if energy cannot be created he would have to take the raw energy needed to create those resources from somewhere. Find something he deems expendable to reduce disassemble and to mere energy to redistribute to resource creation! I wonder where he could have gotten the extra energy to make those resources. Does anyone happen to have any bright ideas? PPS WAS Thanos VERY STUPID! OR VERY WISE??!! The Solution He COULD have us
