I had to run to Krogers for a few items. When I first walked into the outer part, where they line the shopping carts up, I picked a small one. I wasn’t buying much, but wanted to use it more for balance, like a walker.
Before I pushed the cart into the flow of people walking in I stood with both hands on the handle waiting on two ladies to walk by. The oldest of the two women looked at me and then looked at the cart, smiled and kindly said, “No thank you, I don’t think we need a cart today.”
That sort of teed me off. I wanted to ask the woman, “Just what did my body language do to make you think I wanted you to have this cart?”
But I felt better when I thought at least she didn’t say “thank you!” And take cart.
