C'mon! Really?

This morning I saw a big lady on a store's motorized cart with so many groceries in its basket that she had to push it.

I understand that...but there are quite a few extra sized people here. And none of them seem to be trying to do anything about it. I've even offered to go on walks with some of them.

She must be in pretty good shape then. Do you know how hard it is push those things WITHOUT groceries in it? I took an elderly lady shopping and by the time we got to the car it ran out of battery. I had to push that sucker in and it wasn't easy. Pushing a dead car in neutral was easier than that. I think it had to do something with the gearing.

I think that they need to make the aisles in grocery stores move. You just back your car into stall with a scanner and as the grocery aisles slide past, you get what you need, scan it and place it in your car.

My ex actually had to use one after her big surgery. She's was mortified. I asked if I could drive and she just ride in my lap.

Gender reassignment. That's why the marriage went sour.

Edit: You wanna put that where?

Oddly enough, with you, I'm not sure whether you're joking or not.

I was really hoping that picture wouldn't pop up on the internet. Ok, jeez, I farted. I'm sorry. Can we just drop it, now?

My thoughts exactly. That would make a helluva blow torch if it leaked out of the mouth hole.

It disgusts me when I see morbidly obese people riding in those giant electric things. Makes me even angrier when they go 4X walking speed down sidewalks/in stores and expect us yanno bipeds to GTFO their way. I feel like saying "get off that thing and use your freaking legs."

I used to be fat, not as fat as them but I have a different perspective than you guys that never have been fat.
