      LOL,  how could I resist such a funny thread post.  Yeah I bet that lady was laughing all the way back to her senior living quarters.  Then when the other folks asked her what she was laughing about she said, "I forgot".  lol

    No, but someone in a wheelchair ran over my foot once because I didn't get out of her way quickly enough. And I have mobility problems myself...

      That is similar in spirit to the way I was treat and this isn't the first time, as there was once a severly disabled woman driving a self propelled wheelchair once like mad, she was crashing into to walls and people laughing her head off round town centre.....I think I've been traumatised!!!

    I bet you prompted her somehow. Were you by chance teaching people on the street how to paint a devil? wink

    Not run over but indirectly hit. I was at our local Canadian tire store looking at new stainless steel hot cups when this 'evil' individual in a scooter lost control and rammed into the isle full force....chain reaction...the whole isle moved over a foot...the cups from the top shelf came down and I sported a couple of nifty throbbing goose eggs. I believe it was my lucky day because I could have been shopping for axes or sledge hammers.

    That's what I'm going to do when I'm retired. Senior citizens can get away with anything. I think Jacka** is a prime example of that when they dress up as old people and do obscene things. Beep Beep Motha***#*#&

    no, but I did notice a man using one at a Walmart as he tossed a bag of half eaten grapes back into the produce section. I walked up to the woman who helps direct cumstomers, etc. and told her what I saw and that I would never buy any food at this store again and she said, 'we know it happens, but it's hard to avoid it.'  yikes:

    needless to say, I never ever shop there.

    Those things are heavy buggers. I'm surprised you're not confined to having to use a mobility scooter after having been hit by a mobility scooter.

    I think mobility scooter collisions is what keeps the mobility scooter industry in business.

    I should count myself lucky never to have been hit by a scooter, power chair or standard wheelchair.  I have encountered many of them in my line of work.

    Yup - by myself when I was moving it!  smile
    Seriously, if you haven't tried driving one of these things, do it some day just for fun.  They are their own challenge and I'm impressed that so many can do so well with them.  Frankly I have a harder time understanding being hit with a stroller.  That's outrageous!  A perfectly healthy adult who can't steer or properly operate a stroller?  Wouldn't you think the "precious cargo" would cause them to be even more careful?  It just seems to me to be a matter of not paying attention.

    Nothing is as dangerous as a senior on a mobility scooter.  Hitting you is their way of getting even with younger people for being young.

    When you see a group of elderhostel members on mobility scooters, run for your life!

    No I have not , but my sadistic side would love to see someone ran over by one. It's like seeing someone trip, or fall. I find it really funny. Of course if that someone was seriously hurt, it's another matter, I would of course help them, between my sniggers.
