Damn You, Scooter!

FYI, if you happen to have a 92-year-old mother who can't walk for long periods at fancy grocery stores, do not put her in an electric scooter chair.
Personnel at the crowded Whole Foods flagship store in Austin are still putting displays back together after my Mom rammed a mess of them.
When I was little, I dreaded walking in front of the grocery shopping cart because she'd get distracted and ram it into my Achille's tendons. I still hate to walk in front of grocery carts.

But that doesn't compare to being rammed in the hip by a scooter traveling at 10 mph.

And for the arrogant French guy who scowled at her because her scooter was blocking the free samples of coffee and biscotti, sacre bleu! What are you doing in Texas, anyway?
He was so nervy. When he got his tiny sample cup of coffee, he had zee balls to ask for hazelnut syrup. And he took three biscotti samples.

You know, I try not to dislike the French because it's such a neo-con thing to do, but some of them are so...French.

Water Pick? I keep forgetting to take that thing in to the dentist so they can show me how to use it so I don't end up hanging off the light fixture.

Le sigh...
