Lonely Elderly German

The latest tear-jerking (and slightly dark) Christmas ad to hit social media is from German supermarket giant Edeka.

Read all about it.

Thanks Janet

While this one is sad it kind of rubs me the wrong way.  The loneliness some elderly people feel is real and I can sympathize with that and it’s a shame that adult kids can’t or don’t find the time to visit or make their parents part of their lives.  But if this were real and my parent faked their death in order to get the family together I think I’d be a little pissed about that.  There has to be a better way.  Maybe I’m wrong to feel that way, but I say, Bad Dad!
