I think I’ve heard this one

Hi kids

I swim about twice a week at a pool that has changerooms as a corridor between the entrance and the pools (designed to encourage swimmers to shower before they swim – most people, like me, just wear swimmers under their clothes).

I was delayed a little at the front desk because someone was in front of me – a blind man. He had a cane, and although it was clear he was familiar with where solid objects were, when he reached out to the checkout girl he was a little bit off.

I noticed all this, and stayed behind him as he went inside (rather than walking around and in front of him, as I’d usually do when someone walked that slowly). That was why I saw him walk straight into the women’s changeroom.

So. Many. Questions.

“I should tell him” met “Does it matter?” in my mind, and I didn’t say a word.

In utterly unrelated news, I wrote a good (and brief) entry on basic Muslim stuff at https://twittertales.wordpress.com/2010/12/01/muslim-headshawl/. In my opinion, every Westerner who doesn’t have a Muslim friend should read it.
