I wouldn't know about that, since I always do stuff above board where it comes to disability and things like that... when I see people parking in a handicapped space who don't have a handicapped tag, card, or using some sort of aid to walk, I always look them over and say, "Sooo... it must be a mental thing, then."
Say that to the wrong nutcase, and you'll find out if it's a mental thing real fast... LOL.

Why lol? As I explained, getting OUT is part of why disabled and handicapped people get in your way in stores. It's a huge treat for a housebound person to go the store. If I just got a list from him and did his shopping for him, he'd almost never get out.

I think all y'all need to volunteer helping an elderly or disabled/handicapped person get around and handle stuff -- your eyes would be opened and you wouldn't feel so smug about yourselves.

Me too. I've been heavy all my life ... 150 pounds in the 2nd grade. I am now approaching 400 and am now on diasability because I'm too big to work.(No, I am not black. I am a 28 year old white male) I really appreciate Walmart providing carts for obese people. With these carts I spend much more time and money in their story.
If you have never been fat, you have no idea how hard it is to get around. More than that, if I walk too much my thighs get chapped from rubbing against my jeans. I also suffer a lot from constipaton -- I only go every three or four day.

My weight is not my fault. It's mostly my matabolism.

You shouldn't call bs on that. I know several obese children that weighed that much at that age.

That's what my mother said. I don't remember. Our whole family was and is heavy. Unlike some folks I am not ashambed or unhappy about my weight. Some people are tall; others are skinny. Some people are fat; others are skinny. You live with what you are givien. So, I've never tried deiting or anything like that. I'm just giving thanks for what I have and and enjoy life.

thats the best attitude to have.. I stand corrected on the obesity when you was a child, I never have realized kids were that big.

Celery gives me gas. I'd rather have fried chicken and mash potatoes. The last time I had bad gas and went to Walmart I nearly got thrown out the store.

Just so you don't accuse me of avoiding your question, I'll answer you directly:
Going to the store is both recreation and therapy for him. It gets him out of the house and out around people, plus it gives him the opportunity to actually WALK instead of just doing his therapy exercises. He can pretty well manage the parking lot walks, and short walking around the store, but for longer times he needs either the motorized cart or a wheelchair cart.
I've offered to just shop for him, but he likes getting out and seeing different things besides "these same four walls", to quote him. I understand -- I get stir crazy myself and ask my husband to take me to the store just so I can get out.
Satisfied?

Yep. My friend who I take shopping has no appetite (it's called "cachexia") and so I'm all the time trying to get him to eat something. If he wants a bag of Milky Way bars, then by god he's getting his Milky Way bars. If it sparks his appetite enough that he'll eat a frozen burrito or the supper I bring him, then in my book they've done their job.
Severe illness is a horrible thing to have to deal with. Anything that makes you feel better is okay in my book.
...and so "I'm all the time"... Is this English? Where on earth did you learn to speak?

There must be a correlation between shopping at Walmart and being fat and/or disabled and needing one of those carts. When I go shopping elsewhere I see neither the carts nor those in need of them.

No, my eyes are fine. I mostly shop in places where the lard carts are not available and do not see anyone with a disability struggling.
