Hi LeeAnn...I told a friend the other day that I was thinking of getting a handicap sticker to use during these dreadful winters we have here in Central NY. I can't push the grocery carts through the ice and slush in the parking lots and when it's really cold I can't walk a half mile to the car because my muscles freeze up. She sighed and said something about 'really abusing the system' and why would I take up a space for someone who is REALLY handicapped. Meaning her, I might say, because she is in a wheelchair and is morbidly obese...both of her knees have 'disinigrated' due to the weight they have had to carry around. So once again, pain is in the eye of the beholder and if you're not crawling on your hands and knees or gimping around with a cane, you don't look like you are in pain so shut the hell up!
Hubby has been doing all the shopping since I had to call him and have him help me get the stuff in the car. This was after waiting at least fifteen minutes for a stock boy or someone to help me. I will say, Walmart will find someone to help me immediately, if I need it.
We got two and a half feet of snow yesterday and more on the way.
