Man Self-Conscious About Being Only Person In Walmart Using His Legs | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's note: This post appears here on BCN with the expressed permission of the Babylon Bee - friends that can find your funny bone in a very dark room.

    FRESNO, CA     Local man Rusty Davis became extremely self-conscious today after suddenly realizing he was the only person in all of Walmart walking on legs.

    "Oh gosh," said a blushing Mr. Davis as he surveyed the sea of scooters around him. "I feel like such a show-off."

    Mr. Davis said the reality of the situation only dawned on him in the dairy aisle after the third straight scooter-bound person asked him to reach a gallon of milk for them. "That's when I looked around and discovered that not another soul in the place was using their legs," said Mr. Davis. "I felt like a mutant, like an X-Man - this freak walking about on two legs, towering over the little scooter brigades. I wanted to run and hide, but the running part would have only made it worse."

    With Mr. Davis being the only person in the store able to reach high shelves, a swarm of scooters quickly formed around him and followed him through the store. "I've been waiting for hours on someone with legs," said fellow shopper Dorothy Thatcher. "We got someone who came in with legs about eight this morning - but no pants. I took a pass. My friend Ethel had to bite the bullet, she needed her heart medicine bad."

    At publishing time, Mr. Davis had tired after four straight hours of getting items off of high shelves and finally sat down in a scooter.

I thought about a similar scenario today out of the clear blue, where few people walk in big box stores, but can still load up on more fattening food which will further hinder them from walking.

No wonder the life expectancy in Americans is dropping precipitously.

Personally, I do hit one big box store - Sams Club - about 18 times a year, where I see those chronically big people floating about in the shopping vehicles, and if asked, I will reach for the lofty product on the higher shelf ... and then I am off.

And "I am off" means walking quickly to pre-considered destinations to evaluate product, take product, and get out as soon as it possible with certain essential items that we use as staples.

At 68 years old, I am as busy as I have ever been in my work life, and I will use whatever space I am given to move quickly, and in a fortuitous consideration, I get a little bit of a brisk walk in.

As a busy older gentleman, I need to get in all the walks I can; which gives one the ability to get longer walks in, which is imperative if one wants to keep on walking.
