How Low Can You Go?

As we ponder this question here is the Limbo Rock…

Today was grocery day. Once a month I get a ride to town for supplies and food. I have come to dread the exertion and ouch of it all but when the cupboard is bare….

I shop where they have the bumper cars for the disabled. It just isn’t possible for me to “walk” a large store these days and have any kind of reasonable day after.

The electric carts have small baskets and I need to play grocery rodeo and park a regular shopping cart that I rendezvous with when the mini basket fills or the bread might get mashed.

I notified a cashier what I was doing so they wouldn’t restock the items. My cane that I no longer can walk without is in my way in the handicap cart so I hooked it over the stationary basket handle.

Someone stole it.

When I completed my shopping and went to check out my cane was gone. The cashier said she had seen me hook it on the cart. The management combed the store looking for it.

It was gone.


I was hoping to finish paying off my last surgery finally this month but they will only get half of what is needed to do that. The other half went for a shiny new cane. It’s copper colored. It will do just fine.

What kind of dirt bag steals an old man’s cane? I hope it was someone who really needed it.
