I AM writing to say thankyou to some customers who helped me in the Bulwell Tesco store on the afternoon of Thursday December 22.
My five-year-old daughter unfortunately had a really bad nose-bleed while we were shopping in the store.
Her clothes were covered, and blood was dripping through my fingers trying to stop it. There was a puddle of blood on the floor, and she was crying her eyes out.
This happened upstairs, right next to a staff entrance, and at least half a dozen members of Tesco staff went by during this. Not one of them offered me any help whatsover. Not a single word was said to me. They all just looked away and walked on past.
This made my daughter more upset, and she asked why nobody was helping.
I cannot believe none of them asked if I needed some wipes or tissues, or if they could call someone for me.
Even from a health and safety point of view, surely they should not have left a puddle of blood in the middle of the floor unattended?
Fortunately, the Tesco customers are a lot more thoughtful.
A huge thankyou to the lovely people who stopped and helped me, asking if I was OK, talking to my daughter to calm her down, handing me wipes one at a time to try and clean me, her and the floor, and giving me a bag to put all the blood-soaked tissues in.
Your help meant an awful lot to me, and I am very grateful to you. Thanks again.
