Attendance Allowance

We had an official here yesterday morning to assess my mother for attendance allowance. In spite of his opening spiel about not keeping up appearances- "chuck Hyacinth Bucket out the window"- she did what most of us would do  and down-played her disability, so that we had to keep chipping in to correct her- "No, actually, you can't do that."
