The aide, busy as they always are, said, "Thank you B, but I do not need any help."
It was obvious to me so I asked B, "Would you help me get the American Flags and put them away?"
She followed me from table to table. I removed the flags and handed them to her. With each new set of flags, she asked, "Where should I put them?" B has the habit of repetitive speaking.
Each time, I replied, "Just follow me and I'll show you where they go."
When we had collected all of the flags, and B did a good job of gathering and holding on to all 26 of them, and having asked 13 times about where she should put them, we went over to the hutch and I opened the door. I pointed, "They go here."
"Here, you take them," she said.
"No, you put them here," I replied, pointing again.
After a "back and forth" of three or four times, she finally put them on the shelf in the hutch and I thanked her.
"You are welcome," said B.
The entire activity took about ten minutes (B moves slowly) but both she and I felt successful. B for having helped, me for having allowed B to help!
