I think i've mentioned sometime before that now when i go to the grocery i use a motorized cart to get around. I cyah bother fight with walking around with a cart and so i finally came to the realization that there's nothing wrong with using the carts - that's what they're there for. Those things are not as easy to manouver (sometimes they go much fast than u really want - esp when turning) as you'd think. I've gotten used to them (for the most part) now but it was a little touch and go at first.
A few months ago, i was going to get some bananas. There was a man standing right at the banana stand, picking his bananas. I approached and realized that i could not make it into the tight space that was left (there were 2 other people there), so i patiently waited behind him for 1 of them to move before i went in. well between me and my motorized cart and all the other carts/people, i had to reverse to let someone out. Don't u know i used the forward control instead of the reverse and ended up jamming said man up against the banana stand. Naturally i was mortified and of course, i was a little flustered so it took me a few seconds longer than it should have to throw it into reverse (as i should have in the 1st place). If i'm not mistaken, i saw the woman who was with him, chuckling to herself (and trying hard to hide it) at the sight of him jammed up against the bananas - i also had to keep myself from laughing out loud after the mortification passed.
yet another example of a funny situation that i find myself in sometimes as a result of this disease - LOL!!
