Usually if u just let go of the controls, the thing would stop. I remember 1 time that wasn’t happening…so i would let go of the controls and the cart would still keep going for just a few seconds before coming to a complete stop. Well by the time i was done and had to leave, i wasn’t thinking about that and as i tried to look left and right for cars as i rolled out of Kroger (down the slight incline) i zoomed right into the street. Luckily i was able to steer it to the side so that i didn’t have an accident with the car that was coming.
A few months ago, i was going to get some bananas. There was a man standing right at the banana stand, picking his bananas. I approached and realized that i could not make it into the tight space that was left (there were 2 other people there), so i patiently waited behind him for 1 of them to move before i went in. well between me and my motorized cart and all the other carts/people, i had to reverse to let someone out. Don’t u know i used the forward control instead of the reverse and ended up jamming said man up against the banana stand. Naturally i was mortified and of course, i was a little flustered so it took me a few seconds longer than it should have to throw it into reverse (as i should have in the 1st place). If i’m not mistaken, i saw the woman who was with him, chuckling to herself (and trying hard to hide it) at the sight of him jammed up against the bananas – i also had to keep myself from laughing out loud after the mortification passed.
yet another example of a funny situation that i find myself in sometimes as a result of this disease – LOL!!
