Editor,

Got my comeuppance from a young lady today.

A hot day, car thermometer at 35 degrees Celsius.

My wife has a physio appointment.

Tells me to keep the car running while waiting so she is not stifled by the heat after treatment.

Waiting for her return with the car running, I fall asleep reading.

Knock on the window wakes me up.

Wind down the window and a nice young lady asks me how long I was going to keep the car running, sitting there you have had it running for at least 15 minutes. The environment is heating up, and there is an air-conditioned waiting room in the clinic.

I find no words to reply. Turn off engine and open windows. Utterly embarrassed.

Lady goes back to her car, mission accomplished.

I would like to publicly thank this LADY for her commitment to our planet.

It took a lot of nerve for her to approach an obvious senior and point out to him that he was an environmental slob. (My words, NOT hers, but true nonetheless.)

I did NOT learn a lesson here, I learned it a long time ago, just needed a reminder.

Thank you, young lady. I admire your spunk. Wish there were a million more of you!!

Location and time of this lesson in environmental responsibility:

Friday, July 5, 2019 , 1:15 p.m., Bumstead Medical Centre, Meaford.

Sincerely,

Karl Braeker, Meaford
