My Funky Knee Gets A Zero-Star Review
My funky knee makes going to the grocery store difficult.
I need to use the sit-on, electric shopping cart.
I can walk, but I can’t walk the entire store, stand in a long checkout line, haul my load out to the car and then carry it all into the house.
The electric carts are a pain in the neck.
They go way too slow.
I can hobble faster than those stupid carts, even when I floor it on max speed.
I understand that they have to go slow for safety reasons.
But do they have to go THAT slow?
I will occasionally stand up and walk to get an item that I need.
I’m afraid that other customers are surreptitiously taking pictures of me and mocking me online as someone who doesn’t really need that cart at all.
If you see me as a meme, I swear, I really do have a knee injury.
The other day I tried to go to Costco.
They didn’t have any electric carts available.
My only choice was to wait for a shopper to be done and bring a cart out.
By that time, the cart would be out of juice and would have to be recharged.
I could end up waiting an hour or even more.
Yeah, nah, I skipped that shopping trip.
I am not enjoying my funky knee.
I do not recommend it.
I give it a zero-star review.
