When I went to college, I had a part-time bar job right across from the lab I was working in. There was one very elderly customer who came in every day and ordered two pints of Guinness. He was a lovely, quiet man and one knew that he was simply whiling away a part of the day. He was very slow moving. When I shut up the pub at 2.30pm in the afternoon, I would find him still trying to cross at the traffic lights. I would end up taking his arm and because he couldn’t move fast and we couldn’t get across without the lights changing, I had to literally wave at the cars and hope they didn’t mow us down.
When he was in the pub, sometimes he could not make it to the toilet on time. He was just so slow. I used to try and walk him there but more often than not, I was left to mop up the puddle of urine.
My elderly friend could not make it on time. While I didn’t relish the clean up job, I did it.
The GOP have really found themselves in a puddle of smelly urine. And it is not yellow, it is orange. The stench is however overwhelming and I don’t know how anyone can clean it up.
