I've heard this before, but that isn't always the case. You don't know what their health issues are. You aren't in their shoes. Have you ever used a MartCart? I have, and thank you very much, I'm 5'11 and weigh 150 pounds and I had knee surgery and used one.
Knee surgury is a bugger. It wasn't a replacement; it was mending a torn ACL and meniscus.
Some people are overweight because of genetic issues or thyroid issues. They eat right, they exercise, they do all the right things but their bodies don't respond too well. It isn't their fault. And being overweight puts a lot of pressure on the back, hips, and knees. The pressure makes it painful and extremely tiring to walk around a huge store like a Walmart SuperCenter so they need the MartCarts.
This lady that hit me was angry at the cashier and backed up into me. She backed up because she threw her stuff back into the basket and backed waaay up to go around the customer in front of her who kept us waiting with several price checks.
I didn't antagonize anyone; I was just standing there. I never said a word, I did nothing. Those MartCarts are heavy and I didn't see or realize she was backing up because I reckon I was too close behind her and I was in her way when she backed up. By the time the MartCart beeped in reverse I started to step back but it was too late.
I don't mean to offend anyone but we just never know peoples' situations. I was too close, so she hit me. I know now to stand waaaaaaayyyyyyy back from those in a cashier line.
When I used one, I'd look behind me first before moving in reverse.
Again, I don't want to offend anyone. I just got some bruises and a LOT of swelling.
Please forgive me if I'm too outspoken; I apologize for any hurt my words have caused.
