Was a sunny day, not a cloud was in the sky, not a negative word was heard….

 

Thanks Paul. This is indeed how it was in downtown Muswell Hill, as Friday grew to a close and the inevitably rainy weekend drew nearer. I couldn’t be out in the back garden because I was waiting for an Asda delivery. The bill was very cheap and the van was very late.

 

I retrieved my thoughts from the flowerbeds, and imagined how it would be when the guy arrived. (Women may have broken through the glass barriers of politics, religion and being a gang member, but Asda delivery remains a prime feminist target. Mainly because women need punctual deliveries in order to juggle 3 full-time jobs.)

 

Anyway, I reminded myself that the driver is the conveying hero, and it’s the system that’s faulty. I thought about how much earache they must be given from justifiably irate customers and probably unjustly snappy bosses. And then it struck me. Perhaps the ultimate mentalising achievement is considering and empathising with Asda delivery men, traffic wardens, dentists, telesales people and disgraced politicians.
