one of the annoyances of middle age

old people. . .
who expect me
to move out of the way
for them

young people. . .
who won't
move out of the way
for me

Get a shopping trolley of your own. Add sword blades to the wheels (in the style of Boudicea).

Then you will get the respect you deserve.

Plenty of room for a Kalashnikov in that trolley. That'll learn them. They won't do it again.

How about a photo of bin Laden on the trolley? Guaranteed to cause people to move out of your way.
I hope that this helps.

good grief guys - I'm only 46!! why on earth would I want a shopping trolley already?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

what I want is a man to do the shopping for me, or at least to carry it. . . no no no, I had one of those once

strike that

what I want is a man to walk ahead of me clearing a path thru the throngs on the street, so I don't have to worry about young/old people not moving out of the way for me

yes, that's it


shopping trolley? tsssssk

(and thinking about it, I believe that people drag shopping trolleys along behind them, so my plight would still not be resolved - I'd need to push it in front of me, and that would just look silly) (not that a shopping trolley with Boudicea style blades, some AK47 or Kalashnikov armoury and notwithstanding Bin Laden decorative features would look at all silly of course)

be thankful that you CAN move out of the way. Some people have no feet!

I, Like The View said...

BUBBLE MAKERS!!!!! now you're talking

Just save it all till you're old enough to have a mobility chair. You can just mow them all down then.
If the estimates about the relative numbers of old people compared to 'the rest' in the next few decades, are correct, we could make a small army on the streets.
(at the moment it's more a sort of slow motion guerrilla warfare)

I, Like The View said...

mig NOBGM has one - people still expect her to move out of the way for them!!! unbelievable. . .
