Overheard in Costa (other coffee shops are available)

 “you can tell your teacher tomorrow how you saw a guide dog being trained, that is a very special dog and once that lady has trained him he will look after a blind person.”

“Mummy isn’t that lady blind?”

“No darling that lady isn’t blind, she wouldn’t be out on her own in coffee shops if she was!”

This whole conversation tickled me and I shared it with my friends on Facebook.

I would usually correct the mum, but on this occasion I wasn’t feeling myself so didn’t.

For which I am now kicking myself; I also find myself asking

“Why can’t a guide dog user go into a coffee shop alone?”

    Also interesting that a Guide Dog would then need to be trained to go in to a coffee shop!?

    Some people can be very ignorant. Say’s something when you’re corrected by a child.

    • I don’t thing it’s arrogants, I think it is more not know and being afriad to ask….. This is why I usually happily answer children and correct incorrect parents. This day just wasn’t one of the times I felt strong enough to.
