So she is leaving before the job is done. Tears for her own job but not for 72 people who died in London on the 14th June 2017. Says it all. Time for the next numpty.
You do get asked some questions in life. Some you can answer, some you can’t and some which you can’t quite comprehend. In 2016 the world changed for us. Over 6 weeks our young son experienced two much death for someone so young. I got plunged into single parenting – a role I was completely unprepared for and at a time when I was close to breaking. Since those fateful 6 weeks we have been asked so many questions about bereavement, single parenting and the future. Here are some of the left field ones.
“What’s it like not to have a mum” – a classmate asked that 4 days after he lost his mum
“Have you thought about hiring a full time nanny” – a Parent
“Do you think he is too young to properly grieve” – a Parent
“Have you thought about a dating agency ” – a neighbour 2 weeks after the funeral
“Luckily he is autistic so he won’t feel as much” – a Parent.
“I’m sorry for your loss but can you start back at work tomorrow as your project needs to stay on track” – a Senior Manager one week after the funeral
“Now your a single parent what are you going to do with your new found free time” – a Dad in the school playground
“Dads don’t cook so do you get lots of takeouts” – a classmate with a Dad who spends most of his time in the pub and playing golf
“Surely your career is the most important thing to you” – a Senior Manager after I quit to be there for our son
“Can’t your son just go to stay with someone during the week so you can do this role. Have you got family who could look after him” – same Senior Manager
“We are reading a book in lesson next week which has a boy who has just lost his mum. You don’t have any objections do you” – a teacher
“You must think yourself quite lucky. You have closure. When my wife left me I didn’t get closure” – a Dad in the school playground
“Have you phoned the Samaritans.” – a mum. I only asked if she had any idea why my bread wasn’t rising evenly.
This time can we get a Leader how is up to the job. No numpties should be allowed to apply – that includes you Boris.
