Hey Austen...I gimped into Walmart one day, pulled out a regular cart and the greeter lady said to me..."There are motorized carts available, you know." I thanked her for the information and kept on going. I know she was just trying to be helpful, but the motorized carts are in plain sight and if I wanted to use one....I would! I just did my shopping wondering how incredibly crippled I must look to other people. I didn't think I was that bad..LOL! It kinda put a damper on my whole day.
And of course there's the old 'eye roll' when I use a handicap parking space and don't drag out a wheel chair or have someone holding me up by both elbows. These people don't know that by the time I am done shopping I'm sometimes lucky if I can stand in the check out line.
