I went to see a fellow disabled friend recently and while I was visiting she asked if we could possibly go food shopping at the local supermarket. Mainly because I'd brought my carer with me and she'd be able to reach things that my friend might struggle to reach herself.
She uses a walking frame to get around at home but when she goes out she has a cute little mobility scooter as she can't walk long distances due to her disorder.
My carer and I were happy to go with her so we all set off to the local supermarket. Me in my powerchair, my friend in her "scootypuff" and my carer walking beside us.
We did our shopping with no issues, checked out and approached the exit... That's when shit hit the fan.
As we were leaving, an enormous fat guy starting shouting (I don't truly know what he said as I'm deaf and I lipread but this is what my carer and friend told me later...)
He apparently started waddling after us and yelling "Oi, oi, you can't take that out of the shop you know! Oi! Are you listening? Other people need that you know! Hey, stop!"
We got caught up in a group of people entering the store and had to stop to let them pass when fatty finally caught up to us and literally tried to shove my friend out of her scooter, all while panting like a dying dog!
My carer and one of the security guards at the door immediately stepped in and yelled at this fat fuck, asking what the hell he was doing!
He literally whined "I need a scooter and she's stealing it!! You can't take it out of the shop!!"
(English supermarkets tend to have one or two scooty puffs max and you often have to request them from security).
It seems that the only scooter this (small!) supermarket had was currently in use and fatty had literally been sat on some seats near the exit, waiting desperately for his precious scooty puff to be returned.
When he saw us leaving he assumed that the scooter my friend was using must be the supermarket one and literally tried to throw her out of it!!
I'm not sure how he could make that mistake as the supermarket scooter is old, battered, covered in the store logo and has a massive basket attached to the front for your shopping. My friend has a shiny, brand new, tiny and foldable purple glittery scooter with no basket... i.e. definitely not a supermarket one!!
While we tried to explain that this was her own scooter, fatty was still trying to push her out of it, yelling that he needed to sit down and he was going to be late if he didn't get his shopping done soon.
The security guy, my friend, my carer and I were all yelling at this fat cunt that it was HER fucking scooter and he couldn't have it but he wasn't paying any attention.
The security guard had to literally drag the fat twat away by his collar and scream in his face that it wasn't the supermarket's scooter before the guy got the idea.
Fatty stood there looking devastated and swaying like a drunk for 10 seconds before turning to my friend and offering to pay her to let him use her scooter.
My carer and I just gawped at him like "what the fuck did you just say" but my awesome friend immediately sneered at him, looked him up and down and replied "sorry, it has a weight limit" before driving away casually.
My carer and I quickly followed after her, laughing our arses off at the absurdity of it all and her calm, scathing response...
It has to be the weirdest fucking thing I've ever experienced in a supermarket (and I've seen some crazy shit, especially at night, trust me!)
My friend was just so calm though! If some fatty tried to drag me out of my powerchair I would flip my fucking lid!! She just looked at him so condescendingly and drove away with her nose in the air. It was brilliant!!
TL:DR - Fatty tries to shove my disabled friend out of her personal scooty puff at the supermarket as he wanted it to do his shopping and assumed she was stealing the store scooter
