I pulled up to Albertsons today only to notice the lady in the car next to me was either asleep or dead… I was not sure. She was older (maybe 70’s) mouth open, pale and in kind of a hunched over position. To say I was started and worried was an understatement… but what should I do? Maybe she was just napping and I did not want to give her a heart attack by beating on the window.
But leaving her there only to find her in the same spot when I came back did not seem right either… so I watched. Yes I know it sounds like a creepy stalker film… I just sat and watched I finally did see her breath which made me feel a little better (but not much) but her color was still way off. After 2-3 minuted I decided to get out of my car and if I slammed the car door it might make enough noise to awake her if she was in fact just sleeping.
I slammed my door, sure enough she moved but it was more of a confused twitch. But it did the trick she stumbled out of her car and into the store I followed along behind her… once again feeling kind of like a creepy stalker ( but really I just wanted to make sure she was ok).
I saw her go to the produce section she appeared “slow but ok” so I bought my broccoli and moved on. Only to then see her go to the liquor section of the store. She bought two boxes of wine, a few apples and pushed her cart out the door to her car.
Oh my…. I was the only one who saw her passed out in her car before hand. All the pieces were starting to fall into place BUT I still had no idea what to do. So instead I did nothing……
What should I have done….? Still scratching my head over this one.
