What's Wrong With This Picture?

Morning All…

First, thanks for taking an interest in Joey’s Avon party, it was a lot of fun.

So, onetime Joey and I were at Wal-Mart eating lunch at Subway.  While we were talking and eating, I watched this guy, who obviously had CP by his shuffling gait.  He was really getting after it.  At the same time, two guys came in: one was walking while the other was in one of those crappy scooters you see at Wal-Mart and Target.

Anyhoo, the walker goes to order while the other parks his scooter, GETS UP FINE, walks the 10 feet or so to the fountain drinks, gets said drinks, then, walks about 15 feet to a table a couple behind Joey, and sits down. 

OK, J, but old people needs scooters sometimes at stores.

Yeah, but the dude had no groceries in his basket.  He had no gait whatsoever, his hands were fine, and he spoke fine…yeah, I listened.  They ate pretty fast and left.  Call me a crip snob, but really?  Then, I saw CP guy at the self-checkout doing his thing, When he left, he crossed in front of us.

Now, I know to each their own, by I was thinking, Ain’t that a…the one that could really utilize the scooter, didn’t, and the one who didn’t appear to need it just came through for grub at Subway at Wal-Mart?

Just an observation.

Be good to each other.



  1. I HATE that! I hate it also when I see stupid kids riding in the stores scooters! By law, they are not even SUPPOSED to be on them! Not only does it deprive a handicapped/elderly person from using it but it is hateful!

  2. We've seen that too.
    Now, I know there's some people where the cripness isn't obvious like, Mom suggested people with heart issues that can walk...just not long distances. So, sometimes, we have to take things with a grain of salt.
