Story Starter: Sparing Trouble

A man in assisted living doesn’t want to be a bother. He takes paper napkins with him, in the mesh carry bag attached to the handles of his walker, when he goes into the dining room and uses those instead of the cloth ones provided. One day, his supply is exhausted, and the next bus to the shopping mall won’t take residents there for three days.

Write the story. What happens? How does he cope? Or not. Make clear his relationships with staff and other residents.
