A man named Marcus Pass shares a devastating story of a teenager making fun of an elderly veteran who couldn’t get up from the toilet seat because he was too weak. Sadly, this speaks a lot of how heartless and brutal most young people are nowadays.
Rant of the day…. eating lunch at zaxbys and over hear some young man laughing about an older gentleman in the bathroom that couldn’t get off the toilet. So I proceed to walk in and can hear this man crying on the toilet I ask him if he’s ok he said that his legs were to weak to stand up and he left his cane by the door. I asked him to unlock the door and helped the man up and got his pants up for him, the man had a Vietnam veteran hat on and gave me a hug and told me that he’s 69 years old and that was the most embarrassing moment in his life with tears in his eyes… I shook his hand and thanked him for all he’s done and walked him out to the lobby and made that teenager apologize to the man…
If we are lucky enough, we will all get old one day, and we will be as vulnerable and at times as helpless as this elderly veteran, that is why we should never forget to treat the elderly with utmost respect.

If there were more people like Marcus, this world would be a much better place.
