I've waited a year for NHS to cut my nails...

This was the front page headline in my local newspaper yesteday.After I'd stopped laughing,I read the story,lol.Basically,78 year old pensioner has been left a prisoner in his own home waiting for a chiropodist to treat him.
Now I've every sympathy for the man in question who,due to ill health is unable to complete this task himself.HOWEVER,he has a daughter and grand-daughter willing to do this for him but is ''Fiercely independent'' ALSO,when asked about private treatment his reply is ''Why should I have to do so ? ''Now,as you are no doubt aware by now,I'm opinionated.So here goes lol.If I were fiercly independent,trapped indoors for a year,had toenails an inch long ( shudder ),couldn't get footwear on,etc.I'D BE TRYING TO CHEW THE NAILS OFF WITH MY TEETH !! Failing that,I'd ask the relatives or pay,simple.Not sit and whinge,sorry.Ahhhhhhhhhhhh,I feel better now,lol.Take it easy...
