    I would have said to the old lady "With your attitude and words no wonder you're in a wheelchair because if you weren't already in one I'd put you in one'. haha j/k

    Nutter!!!

    as if a supermarket would employ someone to stand waiting for disabled customers only and therefore stand around waiting half the day whil ether was no disabled customers.
    Sounds like the OPs lady had issues- or a huge head thinkign the checkoutwas for her sole use

    She obviously had more going on than just mobility issues. I have seen people with twin prams use those checkouts.

    I wouldn't waste any more time worrying about it. She obviously had a chip on her shoulder.

    Obviously her disability is intellectual as well as physical.
    I would be inclined to have sympathy and understanding for her rather than resentment or anger.
    She is probably suffering with a serious illness / disability.

    Hard to feel these things if you have been verbally abused, however I wouldn't take it to heart.
    She probably didn't understand the concept of the checkout or understand that how she was behaving was socially inappropriate.

    I would have told her to bugger off. Just because she's in a wheelchair doesn't give her any right to be so nasty and rude. Nutter.

    I think she sounds like an entitled b*tch.

    The whole point is for it to simply be wider... so they can fit. Imagine if they ONLY ever catered to those in wheelchairs... the checkout person would pretty much be standing there all day doing nothing, because it's not like shops are chock full of people in wheelchairs.

    She needs to wait in line, just like everyone else. It's not the same as the able-bodied using the disabled toilet - she had no reason why she couldn't wait a minute or so to be served. Twit.

    WOw!! ..I hope the checkout manager came over and assisted the poor checkout chick and stopped the abuse being hurled at both of you.


    The checkouts are wider, allowing access for wheelchairs and prams - like PPs have said.

    The express lane clearly states '12 items only' - am sure there would be a sign stating 'wheel chairs only' if that were the case.


    It's kinda like me with three feral kids going off at a childless customer in the 'confectionary free' checkout isn't it??

    A disabled car park is because they NEED the extra room and to be close to the entrance. I'm quite sure she didn't NEED to be served immediately.
