FML - The follow-up
acidonymous Say more :
this is literally my first FML ever made, let alone published!!! This was really surprising to wake up to. But to elaborate a little bit more, yes i did have to stay and clean it up, but i did get paid to do it. The lady in the motor scooter did not make any purchases and walked out of the store right after it happened (walking perfectly fine), probably to avoid conflict. So no one got the chance to talk to her. luckily i had no immediate plans after work other than sleep!

But like you said, 59, your husband wasn't able to walk longer than a minute. Op said that the lady seemed to be walking just fine and hastily across the store and the parking lot towards her car. But anyways, if she had, or not, any disability, the least she could do was apologize before leaving.

People always say those carts are too fast. I don't get it. Every time I've had to use one, it has been so painfully slow that it made me wish I had never even gone in that store! Yet, even though they're that slow, it has still been hard to manage them. It's weird. How the heck did she take out a whole aisle?

being overweight to the point where you can't stand isn't a disability nor is it a handicap. it's a fucking excuse to not do shit & sit around on your fat ass all day.

The problem here in the states, #27, is that many of the people who use the disability benefits aren't actually disabled. I'm not necessarily saying they're fat (though some are) but rather that they're fucking lazy as fuck. Many people in the states quite literally won't even get up off the couch to walk 3 feet to the refrigerator to get food/drink. They'll designate that someone else do it. They also steal the mobility scooters when they can quite easily walk the same distance with no ill effects. It's a highly common occurence due to the fact that many of us are taught growing up that we're all super special snowflakes who everyone should respect regardless of our actions or beliefs. It's lead to an over privileged society where people think they can use and abuse disability benefits for their own rights. Also, sadly, we have a rule in here the states. "The customer is always right." Many stores won't bother stopping a non-disabled customer from using their disability benefits (scooters and parking places) because they don't want to lose that person as a customer.

If she really were disabled and not just incapable of walking without getting a little tired, she probably wouldn't have been able to leave like nothing happened.

The intolerance on this thread is sickening. These people are overweight and cannot walk long distances, and you're calling them names? Are you fucking kidding me? Yes, they overate and gained weight and probably brought it on themselves. Who the fuck cares how it happened? If they fell off a ladder because they weren't being careful and somehow lost a leg, would you bitch at them for causing their disability? Would you yell at them as they rode a scooter or parked in a handicapped spot? Would they be any less disabled than this person? The fact is these people are not able to walk normally, hence they are disabled. Full stop. It does not mean they are any less of a person than you, nor does it mean they deserve your fucking disdain. This woman walked away normally, however. So fuck her.

well if the over weight ones stopped using things such as scooters and actually walked then they would start loosing some weight. I have an aunt who uses the scooter because of being over weight and it is so irritating. she spends 2 and a half hours grocery shopping. if she would walk instead of using that scooter not only will she loose weight it will get easier over time. The people on this thread who is calling obesity a handicap are the ones giving these people the excuses they need to stay the way they are.

I don't know why you're being downvoted, you explained that very well. The only problem is, she didn't seem to be very handicapped if she just walked away. That's why people are upset.

Yeah, my purpose wasn't to breed hatred for the obese, but to point out that she simply got up and walked off despite supposedly needing a scooter. So even if she was heavy, she was, indeed, "handicapped".

getting to the point of being so fat that you're body can't support you is simply disgustingly lazy and as hard as notzax is trying to claim that being so grotesquely lazy and fat is a "disability" when it's not tells me that s/he is one of those people who are so lazy they've gotten fat enough for their body to not be able to support the weight....and should potentially change their username to Jabba The Hutt

Did any of you assholes ever think that the obesity may be caused by another disability that prevents walking regularly? If you can't walk without help, you're not exactly going to be the fittest person.

So long as you're getting paid and plan on keeping the job for a while, facing problems is going to help you out lots in the long term. Being one of the few employees that fixes problems (or cleans in this case) instead of makes problems is going to pay major dividends in the future.

Well maybe so. But if they ever want a better job having good references can help immensely & having bad ones can dog you forever. Not to mention if it will be a while that they're still working there, could get promoted to closing manager after a while.
