When I was in high school, I volunteered at a nursing home, assisting with the Bingo Program every week.
A haze of smoke always filled that old auditorium, along with hundreds of tense, elderly bingo players.
My eyes burned upon entry, and I always left reeking of cigarette smoke, but that's not what struck me- it was the tensity that encapsulated that room. That's why I'm not surprised to hear about this....
Police in Rideau Lakes, Ontario, Canada got a call on Tuesday from a nursing home. The call: a BINGO BRAWL.
Apparently, a 79-year-old woman and an 86-year-old woman got into a fight over bingo. The fight started because one of the women took someone else's regular seat.
Then, once it got physical, MORE people joined in on the fight.
The cops were able to break it up and, fortunately, no one was seriously hurt.
The cops wound up not filing charges.
