I thought I was going to get through the day without getting all weepy but I guess not.There was an old man inside Trader Joes asking for an application. Probably in his 70's. He was saying he had lost everything with the crappy economy, and was eager to work. He said he knew he was old and he hadn't worked in several years but he was strong. He tried to flex his muscles. The manager said he'd see what he could do, and then old man slowly walked out of the store back out to the bus stop.God I wish he was in a garage somewhere, happily tinkering away on some vintage car instead of working away his golden years so he can eat and take care of his wife. Screw all this.
