There'll Be Another One Next Week

Life in the old folks home:  I was on my way out to go shopping, but I stopped to check the mail. There were the usual ads and my new copy of Time Magazine.  I didn't want to waste time, so I took the ads and Time and opened my door and dropped them on the floor inside the door.  I closed the door and went shopping.

Later I returned.  The house keeper or the care giver had come to collect the trash, had scooped up my junk mail and my unread Time Magazine and carted them off.

Oh, well, there will be another one next week.

I'd ask whether it's possible to get the magazine back, and request that they not assume somethin g is trash just because it's on the floor.  Grr. - Karen

Things like that makes me sooooooooooooo upset. She should have ask before throwing something away. If she were thinking outside of her chores she could have figured it out without asking and just acting. I would tell her or someone so she doesn't make that mistake again even if it was an accident she should care about the residents more than just doing a job.

In the meantime, try time.com.  You'll find at least the lead articles from the current issue there.  And I would complain.  No one but you has the right to decide what's trash and what's not.
