“Do you live in the Estate, Ma?”

My neighbour is an interesting gentleman. Believe me. By noon yesterday, as he drove into the estate following a brief visit to the hospital, he saw an old woman wearing a low hair cut but walking with great effort. She took a few steps and stopped to catch her breath before continuing. My neighbour observed her closely then decided to give her a lift to wherever she was going in the estate.

“Do you live in the estate, Ma?” he asked her. She did not answer.

“Do you live in the estate, Ma?” he asked a second time. This time she answered him. “Are you talking to me?” she began. “Is that how you talk to an old woman? I am a grandmother.” My neighbour was shocked and simply drove away. He told me later that he was only trying to help the old woman.
