Today, I was at Walmart to pick up things. I was using an electric buggy because my ankle is injured, even though it was a bit odd. On the way out, the controls got stuck going forward, pushing along six carts into a pileup before I managed to get it to turn off. The manager saw the whole thing. FML

GhostFox tells us more.

This is mine. I was really more embarrassed and kind of horrified by the damage to the carts- two of them had broken plastic parts and one had a bent frame- but the manager was very calm about it and apologized for it even malfunctioning. I try not to use the buggies, but I have a disorder that makes my joints prone to dislocation and my soft tissue prone to tearing- and after I torn a ligament in my leg pushing a buggy, my doctor told me not to push cart anymore. It was even further off the table with the high ankle sprain I had. So, yeah, I count as "disabled." Also, my name is not Jade, but it helps to know this sort of shenanigans happens to other people.

It's Walmart...that was probably the least trouble he/she has had all month.

He probably doesn't care cause I think the record is 14 carts.

Interesting, if they constantly have this strokes of bad luck, maybe it can be turned into a TV show named "the misadventures of Jade Stone".

It's funny cause those things are meant for handicapped people

OP is temporarily handicapped. *gasp*

It is absurd for OP to feel embarrassed here. That manager is who should be embarrassed; he should be grovelling apologetically. Their store fails to take proper steps to ensure their scooters are in good condition. They created a huge hazard. They could have severely injured OP or someone else! Sounds like whiplash or getting a limb squished in a collision would be extra-dangerous for OP compared to the average person, due to EDS or whatever. Actually MOST people who'd be using that scooter have fragile bodies. Well, doesn't sound like a safe experience for even the most sturdy person. Sounds like a death trap. HUGE mistakes were made. Hopefully they used it as a learning experience for the whole chain, rather than burying it to avoid getting in trouble.

Clearly, you didn't read OP'S reply - it's actually completely logical to feel embarrassed for something like this but the manager did everything right. They apologized and didn't blame OP for it.
