Exactly, greenfrog. I use the carts from time to time, and I will frequently stand briefly to grab something from a higher shelf, or get something out of those freezer doors that are so difficult to open and get into when you are using the cart. Just because someone can walk at all does not mean that they can walk the entire length of the store pushing a cart, then out to their car, then however far they have to from their car to their house.

I get dirty looks and comments, also. Once when I was about 16 someone said something about it when my older sister was with me, and she totally went off on them. Looking healthy isn't the same as being healthy, not by a long shot. I sometimes feel like people feel they have the right to make snarky comments because I had the bad fortune to be hit with a non-disfiguring disability.
