BUT doing it once, you can have a chat and she might turn out to have some grade A intel!
I did a crime revisit to some ole mrs.miggin's and she was shouting at me. I was getting annoyed but then when I got in the house she was still shouting...
It was just her way. She had some funny old tales like when she worked for a travelling circus as a stripper. Quality.

i would have made a cup then downed it and gone, cheek of the woman! Next your have to give her a massage

Making tea is not in our role, full stop. If she can make it out her house to talk to you, she can certainly make it to the bloody kitchen, if she cant make tea, that is not a PCSOs fault, nor a job for them to do

I would have NOT made a brew for the lady, a few quick questions to see if see was ok and try to pop round at a later stage.

Then i would have reminded her about Op Liberal and stay out stranger, uniform or not.

PCSO's are there for the community but NOT!!!! to be abused and used like social services or help the aged, to protect and prove our worth to our forces we must remember our roles and ensure our community do as well

Didn't you know it paragraph 12 subsection C of the Policing Pledge we area OBLIGED to make mrs.miggins cups of tea?! I shall be writing to your superiors forthwith!
Quality!

I think I might have done the same as you out of sheer shock and slight anger at the assumption of servitude. However, sometimes when I'm feeling wise and paitent I bite my lip and do as I'm bid.
Maybe something along the lines of "Well, I'm not your servant mrs.miggins but sure I'll make you a brew" followed by acme joke about how bad your brews are.

Unless you genuinly did have an appointment in which case you should have called your sarge and got him/her to do it!!! Obviously!

A post meeting check WOULD have done wonders I reckon but cest la vie.

Has she died?

Remember folks that oldies are exactly the same as us but they might look feeble and their minds might be a bit slower there is a mass wealth of life experience there. Except the really really batty ones.

LOL :slcup:

Top answer... sorry but if she can walk to the door she can make a brew.

We and not butlers maids or any other waiter services.

I was genuinely on my way to an appointment. Part of me feels a bit guilty but another part of me thinks, yes we are there to help the community but I am not here to be someone's tea boy (i think it was the shock). She seemed perfectly mobile, probably more lonely. I will probably put my mind at ease my calling at her house later when I am on duty.

It might have been an idea to call in and check she's OK and made her a brew. So then you could have seen if she has food, heating etc in and is managing or needs help from social services / family

I'd have made her a nice cup of tea - it only takes five minutes to boil a kettle.
