Would you recognise your own mother?

This bloke didn't!

It's Mother's Day. The old girl is in hospital. Bloke identifies some other old baggage as his mother. Her nearest and dearest are told she's dead.

The staff don't check the wristband and write the wrong name over the bed. It's only when the the man's daughter shows up and alerts everyone that the woman that her Dad's been sat with for "a significant period of time" is not her grandmother.

NHS staff are obviously slack, but what about this bloke? Was he pissed? Or hadn't seen the old girl for so long he no longer recognised her?

As a people we really do not treat our elders with the love and respect they deserve.

Not directly related but made me think of this discussion. Page 2 is worth looking at also.
