    Why do the people on the electric scooters in the stores run into you and then yell at you to "get out of the way". I was knocked over by a old man on one at sams club, hit last week at walmart by a lady on one, and then today some orca darn near crushed me at walmart. Not once did they say excuse me and I was standing still!!! I think I will sit in my chicken coop where it's safe.

    I hate that too. It's so rude. It's almost as if they are trying to get back at you because you can walk! Sorry for you getting run over! People ought to have to have a liscense to drive one of those things!

    [​IMG] I am gigling reading this. That has happened to me too!

    And you know! my DH and I were at Kmart the other day and saw this van with handicap plates on it, go the wrong way into a handicap stall. He parked in it WAY crooked for starters. He almost hit the sign and the car next to him. Not to mention the lady walking......And we wonder why these people are handicapped to start with????

    Those are the people that take advantage of their disabilities, if they even really have one. The orca you mention probably can't walk very well. I deal with these gimme gimme gimme people daily. One guy recently thought he should qualify for curb to curb service (for the disabled and elderly) because the bus stop was too far to walk to.

    It seems that walmart and sams are dangerouse places for pedestrians. I think I will continue to avoid either of those places.[​IMG]
