What Truly Shocks You?

In today’s context, what truly shocks me is the behaviour of covidiots. I wrote this three weeks ago. When I started writing this post on June 1, 2021, the morning newspaper carried this news item which got my goat up alright. This is shocking because, it is not only dangerous for themselves but, also for other unsuspecting people who may come in touch with them.

What other things shock me in general are callous children abandoning their aged parent/s. I know of two cases where the children are quite well off but, have evicted their parent/s from their homes. Whatever may be the inside story, abandoning them without taking appropriate action for their safety and well being like perhaps housing them in one of the many homes for seniors that dot the landscape is truly appalling.

Another truly shocking thing for me is when I hear about people abandoning their pets on the roads. I simply cannot understand this behaviour.

There are a number of other minor things that shock me but the above three TRULY shock me.

Nothing like this, I hope happens to shock me!

This is my take on this week’s Friday 3 On 1 blog posts where Sanjana, Shackman and I write on the same topic. Today’s topic has been suggested by Shackman. Please do go over to the other two blogs to see what they have to say on the same topic. Thank you.
