I am, of course, all for anything that helps the disabled live a more normal life. However, I will say that *anything* that is subject to interpretation in any way will inevitably be taken to the maximum extreme every time.

I never figured out why SOME of the folks that use the 'instore scooters' can walk right up from across the parking lot into the store, get up and down to reach the upper shelf items, leave the scooter right in the way, and stroll back to their car. What if everyone was that lazy? Talk about a serious traffic jam.....
NEWSFLASH
This is my missive. Not the gospel of St. Right.

Are you kidding me??? People get scooters to go around the shops in over there??????!!!! I can't believe the laziness of some people.

I know you can hire wheelchairs at large shopping malls here and I did this a number of times when my Mum was sick but wanted to get out of the house, and another time when she had a broken leg, but seriously, to get a scooter just because you're either lazy or fat or both is unbelievable.

Seriously

They have 4-5 of them at the store entrance. Almost all your bigger stores. Wal Mart, Kroger, etc.

I mean, it's not like someone's there checking for handicapped papers... you see 'em and want one, grab it.

On that rationale, we'd be banning toddlers, too. Sounds good to me!

I'm not keen on the comfort animal idea. There are some people phobic of various animals, including horses. One person's comfort animal is another person's debilitating nightmare.


Gettit? nightmare? hehehee

No one else thinks it seems dangerous to ride bareback when you're blind? Blindness does mess with your balance, right?

Yep... every Target I've ever been in has aisles like that. They're great because the kids can't reach out and knock crap off the shelves.

You also don't have to turn sideways to inch past another customer in the same aisle.

In a target near here you cannot get your cart through the end of a few aisles as there is a post in the way. It is absolutely insane.

I know that they can train racehorses to pee on command for doping testing, not sure if you can make them poop when you want them too.

Horses are not renowned for their intelligence.

The Target isles over here are very close together. Most of the time it's not even worth trying to get the trolley down the side isle. Leave it in the main isle to block up passage for the other trolley users.
