What would you have done if you were: (i) a member of the staff in Mrs. Pumphrey's (ii) a neighbour? What would your life have been like, in general?
(i) If I had been a member of the staff I would try talking to Mrs Humphrey once or twice about the over feeding but if she wouldn’t stop I would not continue doing that as it would most likely cost me my job. I may at times not feed Tricki and fool her in such tricks.
(ii) Had I been a neighbor of Mrs Humphrey, I would have tried making her understand the cons of over feeding Tricki. However, I do not consider that my efforts would do any good because Mrs Humphrey was always involved in her own thoughts and ideas and would not pay me any heed.
