Bad advise.

The man four houses up is 92 and he gives everyone bad advise. I always listen to him and talk with him. He just wants someone to talk to and I will never hurt his feelings. He is a nice man. Yesterday his wife stopped me and thanked me for being so nice to him. She said he gives bad advise. I told her that is ok he just wants someone to talk to and he can talk to us. The carrots are from our garden and there are potatoes coming back up,

So kind of you to talk with that elderly gentleman. His wife is very grateful that you give him the attention he needs too. Two happy people thanks to you.

@jstory07 I bet he is. The elderly are often so lonely in this country of ours. We all need to reach out more often to them.

That is so nice that you are kind to him. And at least you are smart enough to know not to heed his bad advice.

I'm happy you are so kind. He probably means well. Wow, those carrots look better than anything I can get at a grocer around here.

Many tend to avoid elderly people. All they want is a listening ear. Good that you are able to spend some time with him

I hope we all have long life, with a meaning, and become old (but still young inside). We can be nice and teach to respect the elders now so when we become old, we will get respect and get treated well by the others.

@stringer321 Yes, we all get old if we live long. I feel we change every ten years or so due to our changing priorities. Body can also decide our course overruling the mind. I just set an example and it leaves an indelible mark.

@Shiva49 I guess when we get old and lonely, we will need a listening ear, to hear us. This will be a priority. I hope we all find the reason for life, and live only for feeling it.

It is very nice of you, you have patience for the man. I have a neighbor, she is old and cannot throw the garbage to the main trash can. She always leave a plastic bag with the garbage near her door and when I go by the stairs, I pick it up and throw it for her. No one else does, they don't like her. She sit on the bench at the block so everyone who comes in or out of the block, see her. Still, she is old even if not pleasant. Once the plumber came to fix the pipe of my appartment, the old lady looked at us, the plumber worked, I looked, and she started telling me to move things around for the plumber so he have more space, I mean, she is not my boss. I didn't like it and the plumber didn't need it.

Some elderly people just need to be heard and are lonely. Glad you lent him an ear. Glad to learn you are getting more carrots and potatoes.

That is nice that you do talk to him. It really is more important to not hurt a nice man's feelings when you can just not take his advice. Your carrots look wonderful,
