There are two ways a senior citizen can speak to a housekeeper.
(1) "Please put things on the lower shelf where I can reach them."
OR (What I hear more of)
(2) "What's the matter with you? Can't you see I am in a wheel chair? How am I supposed to reach that high shelf? Do my arms look that long to you? Maybe if I had Gorilla arms I could reach some of that stuff. How many times do I have to tell you?"
Please, folks, remind me to be the former, there are too many of the latter.
