Now I understand being in a hurry but I was using my walker because i had been ill and was a little wobbley , All I got from this woman was Sorry I'm in a hurry, party you know. WELL lady I didn't know but I hope you had fun. Both my grand kids had big eyes at this behavior. So we sat down in the truck and talked about it. They know to wait your turn and be polite. Ahhh life sometime isn't fair. What would you say to this person? I said nothing picked up my things and walked out with my kids and DH and hearing her say Well, she could of at least said it's ok

I might not have said anything to her either if it were me (okay, I probably would have, but some days it doesn't seem worth the effort), but at the point when she thought that I should have said it was okay, I would have turned around and blasted her.

For goodness sakes, couldn't she see the walker? I'm outraged. If I had seen it happen, I would probably have given her an earful.

That's an idea Selkie I think your a very nice person. I'm trying not to have to use that blasted walker but I'd have had to get up off the ground if i'd not had it. Geez I hope I get stronger faster.

My favorite response is to tell rude people to "grow up".

I think the best response I have heard is, "Are you having a bad day?" asked with genuine concern.

When these situations come up I always assume that these people were sent to test me.

Sometimes I pass and sometimes I fail.

I must admit that I have more fun when I fail but, I keep trying.
