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.
