Yesterday, I went to the grocery store. I carried my umbrella and purse in, found a cart, and pulled off to the side and out of the way since there were people coming in and leaving as well. A woman pushing her toddler in a full shopping cart leaving the store, pulled inches in front of where I was, and huffed until she finally pulled around me. Then she grimaced and audibly sighed as she huffed past me.
What I want to know is:
*What could I have done differently? I was letting people go in and out, there was enough space to get three regular carts through and I was just putting my umbrella and purse in the cart, which took 5-10 seconds.
I think the shopper was frustrated that there were slower people in front of her, unless she pulled where I was, facing the other way. Yes, the other shopper was on a scooter with someone with a cart carrying their items out. They were slow, but you would have gotten out faster if you had just stayed behind them.
One of those "excuse me for living" things I suppose.
