Get me to safety app

When you're stressed and in a public place press a panic button and someone wilt book a hotel, book any thing you need, book transport, drive to you, take anything you need to you and drive you to the train station hotel or airport or home
  [vote for,

Sometimes I am stressed in a public place and I kind of want support.

Planning while stressed is difficult and some people experience nervous breakdowns. So I suggest an app with a panic button and then someone comes to you to care for you.

They wilt handle all the things required to restore your sense of safety.

Explanation of "wilt" https://en.wikipedi...ki/Thou#Conjugation
When thou is the grammatical subject of a finite verb in the indicative mood, the verb form typically ends in -(e)st (e.g., "thou goest"; "thou do(e)st"), but in some cases just -t (e.g., "thou art"; "thou shalt"). Originally, thou was simply the singular counterpart to the plural pronoun ye [pocmloc, Apr 20 2022]


       I think this is a very interesting idea. Elements of it are widely-known-to-exist:   

       e.g. wealthy people have staff who handle all this stuff for them, their driver will be idling round the corner ready to pick them up at a minutes notice, their secretary will book their travel and accommodation for them, etc.   

       e.g. the AA, the RAC, etc. if you are driving somewhere and your car breaks down, you call the AA and they organise behind the scenes, contacting a local garage, sometimes even booking onward travel and accommodation.   

       I see this idea as a kind of personal emergency cover. The question then is what is and is not covered, and how it is paid for. I can imagine two different models, a one-off charge or a subscription service. I think the subscription service would probably work best, that is how the AA etc. works. Simply because the one-of charge is likely to be expensive, and because quite a few people may pay for the subscription for "peace of mind" but rarely or never actually use it.

       //They wilt// come now, it's they will, thou wilt. Get it right.

       People use the word will to mean personal will and how some thing is or so or goes on.   

       I like the separation of the words so I started using wilt to mean the second definition. As Im not referring to your personal will but what goes on.

       I admire your intent but in this case it is an elementary grammatical error. See link. Perhaps the word you are thinking of is "shall"?

       The app could have a "Grammar panic" button as well so that when you are hectored by a pedant you get instantly put though to a grammar expert who can argue back against the pedant on your behalf.

       I guess I am trying to say that when most people use the word will they mean the word shall.

       Yeah well most people are a bit stupid wouldn't you agree?

       The King James Bible from the 17th century uses the word wilt without the word thou and with a verb.   

       1 Kings 11:38

       I errored. The word thou appears in the preceding sentence.

       Is "they" an acceptable substitute of thou?
chronological, Apr 20 2022

       The wikipedia page is actually pretty comprehensive. "thou" is singular / informal, "you" is the plural / formal equivalent. Readst thou well the link I provided, and afterwards then thou wilt understand well, though (addressing all bakers) some of you will know this stuff already

       It should be a form of insurance, where you make a payment and the company agrees to provide this service if you ever need it.

       "Wherefore art though" actually means "why", which is what the user of this service is asking.

       This is a nice idea. I like the concept of more kindness being factored into our day to day stuff, technology, etc. [+]

       Where is the kindness?
Voice, Apr 20 2022

       Somebody's stressed and there's a support application to help them. Helping people is kind.

       When tens of thousands of Russians flew to other countries, local hotel options in their destinations dried up. I spent many days in permanent hotel limbo, taking taxi after taxi to hotels which had dropped my booking for higher bidders.   

       My two biggest problems were: 1) no (internet) credit left on my local mobile sim card. 2) no way to prebook a hotel and make sure that they would honor the booking.   

       Everyone on earth seems to book hotels for a small commission, so why don't taxi services like Lyft, etc. do it?

       // dropped my booking for higher bidders//   

       How is that legal? It's breach of contract.
