One of my rare trips out to the grocery store resulted in a strange encounter: I was reading a price label. Another customer came up, saw my very blue quad-cane, and began to slowly and loudly read the contents of the price tag to me.

I just walked away before I doubled over laughing.

My best guess is that this person somehow thought that a non-elderly person (I'm younger than most on MR) using any type of cane was legally blind. But who knows? Ableds are weird.

Well....(trying to think of that silver-lining thing here). At least it's a willing-to-help abled????? Better than that, some d*ck that slams into the handicapped space at the Grocery in front of ya! It drives me nuts when I see that. It's the only time in my otherwise relatively sane brain that I have a momentary impulse of destruction toward someone's car, and NO, I've never done it. Impulses are not acts. It's like seeing that jerk that takes up two damn spaces at Xmastime, on 12/23 (December 23rd) at the mall, ya know? Around here, you can literally be 1/2- to 1-mile away, walking-wise, from the store entrance, at that time of year. I get very very cranky about two-space parkers and don't tell me that they don't "know." They know.

Isn't it just the age-old story of the caned vs. the abled?

I'm reminded of that Lucy Liu line from "Ally McBeal" to the person in the wheelchair: "What the hell do you people want? You already get all the best parking spaces."
