I just thought I would pop round the shop before any snow, just for a breath of fresh air, as much as anything.
At the checkout there is a young man (about 20) in front of me, and he turned and said “that’s nice”
I said “what is” to which he replied my powerchair. I said “oh yes, but it would be really nice not to HAVE to use it”
To which he replied" if ever I have to use a wheelchair, I will get an electric one like that, cos I am lazy the same as you"
To say I was mad is an understatement, I used to self propel many years ago until my arms became too weak.
He was really lucky, cos if I could have got my arm up to him, I would have slapped his face!
I am angry cos of what he said, but I am more angry with myself for letting such an ignorant person upset me so much.
What planet do they come from?
Thanks for listening.
Oh dear, such a stupid, arrogant, ignorant thing to say, prob best you couldn’t thump him though, you wouldn’t want to be in trouble yourself! I hope you’ve calmed down now,
Couldnt you have just kicked him, right where it hurts !! what a stupid ignorant pig !! i would have been just like you,but i think when it happens you are just gobsmacked arent you ?
What a d**k head, you should have driven forward and broke his ankles, then he could get him self a power chair and, experience the fact, that its not fun to use these things.
I know how you feel, I get very frustrated that I can no longer, give someone a whack if they deserve it.
Trouble is, I would be the one that fell over.
I. El. (Eng). (Rtd).
I know its going to be a bad day when I get out of bed and miss the floor, today is such a day.
I understand you getting so angry, but from what you say, this ‘gentleman’ was as thick as pooh, so perhaps he was just feeling nervous that his lack of grey matter might spread to his legs! Doooooh. Keep smiling,
Hi Pam,no wonder you are mad…chuffin cheek of the moron!
Somome in a supermarket once, gave me a dirty look when she realised I was there and in HER WAY! She said
You should have a bell. I said,
What, like a leper? Enough said, eh?
We have to rise above these inane remarks and pity the poor idiot who said it!
