Some people make me sick.
Those who abuse children, women, the elderly and animals probably come straight to mind, but there are lower forms of life than that.
When I went into hospital, I left all my jewellery at home (rings, earrings, watch, necklace), took just two pound coins for emergencies, my glasses and our secondary mobile phone.
I was being practical, not wishing to cause any problems with metal affecting equipment, getting in the way, or the staff having to tape me up.
I had to sign a declaration that apart from any valuables asked to be locked away, the hospital would not be held responsible for any loss of property, and I was OK with that.
Hospital staff are busy enough, as healthcare is their priority, not ward security.
We have a couple of friends who are going into hospital in the next day or so, and both have been warned about an opportunist doing the rounds.
What a scumbag to prey on the weak and defenceless at their most vulnerable.
They have no ethics, no conscience, no thought for those facing trauma, surgery and recovery.
Instead they are stealing from them which is not only disrespectful but dishonourable.
