So per your advice, DH and I went to Kroger and I rode the Hoveround. It was interesting. I now know a little about how disabled people must feel. Most people tried desperately to avoid eye contact. Two people actually had the balls to ask me what was wrong with me. One was the cashier.
Mine didn't have a horn:( But I did enjoy abusing the backup beeper. My incisions aren't healed yet, so at least I got to go.
So there I am, with my list in hand and my coupon binder in the basket.

At least you are not fat. I like seeing the fit people with medical issues on those things.

Fat people that need those to get around should just stay home and shop online

LOLOLOL I love you, and this. Hahahahahaha AWESOME!!


And I had a friend in a wheelchair when I was in elementary school and she told me once that the worst thing about being in a wheelchair was that people didn't look at you. Like they were afraid you were contagious or something. My whole life I have gone out of my way to make eye contact with people in chairs, on crutches or with braces or any sort of medical device, and give them a friendly smile like I would with any other person I accidentally caught the eye of. People are so funny, they really don't know how to handle stuff like that!

Love it! So glad you used it. I would have told the cashier that nothing was wrong with me. Is she going to take me to Lark jail, Wtf?

That is awesome. Love it!

But I can't believe people asked you why you were riding it. I hope it came out of genuine concern and not asshole-ish-ness. But I won't hold my breath.
