I just went to Kmart with my husband who had major knee surgery a few months ago. He has trouble walking distance without causing pain.We went to get a wheelchair but only one and it was dead. We went toward the back of store and here is a kid maybe 12 yrs old on one wheeling around . . I said' that's why there are no wc for people who need them.. Her mother heard me and said You need to keep your comments to yourself.'That's my daughter ,her ankle hurts. ( Really) No brace ,splint or anything on either ankle. Not even socks so could see clearly it didn't appear major. I think the DMV should give an ID card for people who have placards to show for those carts or at least store to monitor who gets them. Lazy isn't a medical reason.
great idea

no parenting is the problem here. what happened to the days when you would get up and give a lady your seat or someone else in need? the mother should have gave the kid a smack and yanked the kid out of the wheel chair. were they shopping for banana's by chance?

Thanks. That's the way we were raised too. That's what's wrong with our society today. It's like on the metro, which we seldom ride. These kids dare offer their seat to older adults. My husband could get an electric chair but needs ramp thing to haul it.More trouble than its worth. He will be doing better in a few months hopefully and won't need one.

Merry Christmas
