I simply cannot comprehend the thought that if you want something you just take it. My sister-in-law bought a shovel to keep the porch and sidewalk clear for her mother. Jack goes up and does it so she can get in and out to see the doctor etc. There is a progam here where the county helps fix up the homes of those with very little financial income with a very low interest loan. Dolly just get social security and not much of that as she only worked as a hotel maid on and off. Under the progam, the county fixes it up and she can pay on the costs or not. If she can't, when she passes the house goes to them. They send someone to plow the driveway and whoever came took the shovel. Now mind you they didn't have to do the sidewalk or the porch so there was even no need for them to get out of the truck. But took it they did. Why people feel that it's okay to take advantage, and from the elderly, just makes my blood boil. Knowing my sil I'm quite sure they will hear about it, but they will probably just deny and try to say anyone could have done it. I know it's not a major expense, it's the principal of the thing.
