If you were to see...

If you were to see someone in their mid twenties using a mobility scooter (say in a grocery stores), what would be your thoughts?



I'm curious to know because I often use one when shopping for groceries since my car accident. To look at me, I don't have anything visibly wrong, but my spine is very damaged and walking for any extended period of time is excruciatingly painful for me. I've gotten some really nasty looks, eye rolls, and mumbled comments.
So what would YOU think?

I don't generally judge people I don't know.

That's all.

I wouldn't give you any particular look though.

I really would imagine that there's a medical induced reason for it and I'd feel bad. I feel bad for anyone struggling with health issues.

I don't think anything of it. I've had to use them after surgeries and I'm sure no one could tell something was up. I'm barely 24.

Maybe that person is disabled. I watched a documentary about a guy newly diagnosed with ALS, and down the line he had to use a scooter. He was in his late 20s I believe.
