How we live or sketches from the supermarket
Today in the store I paid attention to my grandmother - for a long time I chose canned food cheaper. I noticed that at plus 2 degrees she was wearing rubber slippers ... He came up, stood next to her, helped me figure out the price tags, then he took me around the store, threw everything into the basket that caught my eye)
They bought her a full basket of groceries, and she read: "Oh, no, I won't be allowed to the cashier, they know that I have no money." When I realized that this was not a joke, that I would pay for everything and that I could take everything I wanted, I took butter and rice.
BUTTER OIL AND RICE !!!
He asked what was not at home from the products, in order to understand what else to take, it turned out that there was nothing at all at home. When I threw in the basket a couple of chocolate bars in my eyes there was such a childish joy ... my 3-year-old sister has the same eyes when they allow chocolates to eat ... Chocolate grandma loves it, only now it is expensive to buy it for 6 years.
I didn’t know what to do until the cashier’s office came up — she refused to take food, she said “then tell me that you are my nephew, otherwise they will not let us pass at the cashier’s office”, then she thanked and was baptized. Since she was so afraid of the ticket office, it was very interesting for me to find that freak who, at one time, did not miss her at the checkout with her purchases: 2 canned goods and bread. 120 rubles.
She did not leave the house for a month. She ate canned food, they ended a couple of days ago.
With such shining eyes I said: “You know, son (I called you and“ son ”) when I left the house, I asked the Father in Heaven to send me 100 rubles for food. I sometimes find money on the road, and how much you bought it. "
I'm going and I'm ashamed. Drove home, picked up groceries.
She lives in a business class house - brick towers at the intersection of Lenin and Udaltsov. I was surprised. It turned out that there was an apartment there after the demolition of the five-story building, which stood in this place. She lived with her son. The son died 6 years ago, left alone.
And what is interesting is that many well-to-do people live in the house, they already knew her son, they see that the grandmother lives alone for a long time and walks in the fall in slippers, that she does not eat normally ... He picked up the food and went to the apartment.
There is a cardboard on the floor, all household appliances are torn out in the kitchen (it is clear that it was torn from the kitchen and the sides of the kitchen were broken). She explained that this is the daughter-in-law and the grandmother's sister, immediately after the death of her son, she took out all the furniture, all the equipment and no longer appear - they are waiting for the grandmother to stop working in the apartment. You should see how she lives, what she had on the table ...
I understand about why there is not enough money from a pension for food - a communal flat in this house, a concierge (try not to hand over money) and so on costs 2 times more than in a five-story building, and my grandmother has no other housing, it’s scary to exchange apartments the elderly will be killed, then deceived, in general, there is no chance of changing the apartment. And it does not matter all that.
The important thing is that this unfortunate basket of products, which is enough for a month, costs 2000 rubles. 2000 AMOUNTED RUBLES!
In the 19-storey two-class business-class access house, people cannot cooperate and prevent their grandmother from starving to die.
And what a grandmother is!)))
She worked at the Central Research Institute of Cosmonautics (it seems so called), research associate, PhD. Sang in the Big once. I looked at the photos from a distant youth - what a beautiful woman was!) And such old age ...
Her sister calls her every six months to find out if she died or not. And every time a “relative” hears that the grandmother is still alive, she curses her and hangs up. She has a grandson, a daughter-in-law, who is also waiting for her to leave. In general, comrades relatives, hell wait. Grandma will be fine. And the food, and clothing, and go to a sanatorium, and you, with ** and, will survive all, I will try.
At parting, I heard so many kind words ... I didn’t know what to do - either to thank, or not to delay, or to cry. Said that I will sometimes call in. He returned home, opened the FB, immediately saw a friend describing a similar situation in the store, once again made sure that the situation was just Achtung.
A lonely old person can die of starvation in a house where all the neighbors know that a person is undernourished and everyone has the opportunity to extend the life of his grandmother without straining his budget.
All poher. Even not so - all pooooooooooher.
Doctors will come, will arrange somehow and there is no person. The man worked for the space program, developing the stuffing apparatus on which Gagarin was sent into space. Does not matter.
Will die of hunger and all - no one is interested.
21st century, Moscow, cho.
Friends, I have one request at the end of this long text - let us pay for their baskets every time we see grandmas in the store. Have you seen these baskets? They will get a maximum of 300 rubles there themselves.
Today Vera Dmitrievna came to the store with 60 rubles. Just come, throw grandma in the basket of products and pay at the checkout. 500-1000 rubles for those who are friends with me is nothing, but for a grandmother you can help, it’s probably a matter of life and death.
