I went to the shops and there was no one at the till so I put my stuff down at the end (the conveyor belt was still running).

An older woman on crutches (she was only carrying a sponge pack, nothing heavy) queued up behind me and huffed a few times while glaring at me, but I ignored her and took my time :smug:. I was going to give her a right look, but the shop assistant had come and also it looked bad if I was rude to a disabled person in public.

What do you do when disabled people are rude?

I'm not really understanding how she was rude.

Weren't you both waiting for someone to attend to the till?

She kept huffing loudly, coughing, and glaring at me while edging closer (might have been in a hurry). I couldn't have put my stuff on the conveyor belt it was running.

I experienced something slightly similar to this about a year ago while in Sainsbury's. I was putting all my shopping on the conveyor belt and the amount was totalling up. I suddenly realised I didn't have enough money to pay for all the shopping. I apologised to the cashier and told her I couldn't afford to pay for it all and I would have to put back about £6.00 worth of food. The woman said that was quite alright. So she asked me to pick out things i didn't want that could be deducted from the price. There was a man standing behind me in the cue. No-one else. Well he huffed and he puffed and he groaned and looked at his watch. I looked around Sainsbury's. There were plenty of other tills open, not to mention the self service area. I was actually becoming a little bit upset,as it was humiliating and embarrassing that I didn't have enough money to pay for my groceries. I started crying a little bit. The shop worker was lovely. Told me not to be upset and that they see this kind of thing all the time. Meanwhile the man behind me,I could just sense,was becoming more and more impatient with me,while I was giving items back to the woman for her to deduct. I suddenly turned towards the man and said to him, "I'm sorry if my poverty is interfering with your perfect life". He moved to another till. Gobshite.

What do you do when disabled people are rude?
Ignore them, they are people just like you, they just have other things to help them with daily life.
Who cares about that? everyone queues whoever you are.
Why should they get special treatment for queuing? they're the same as everyone else in that situation, they're being rude and they know it.

Would have said "I'm going to let you go before me because you only have one thing to put through but there's no need to be so rude and huff at me like that"

Exactly. I did pretty much ignore it, though I looked up when my credit card was processing and she was still glaring. :rolleyes: Wish I'd said something but didn't want to seem like a **** because everyone takes the side of the disabled person in these situations.

Could have been. The mad thing is I deliberately took all the money I had out of the bank and left about £50 at home,specifically so I wouldn't spend too much in Sainsbury's. But then going round the aisles, I completely forgot I didn't have all my money with me and knew that there was zero in the bank.

For all they know you could just have forgotten your card? Don't sweat it And yea that guy defo sounds like an idiot esp. if self service was open :rolleyes: I always go self service when I'm in a hurry.

She was already part way through all the scanning of my things or else if I had seen someone with just one or a few items I nearly always say, "Go on ahead of me".

I don't discriminate between disabled people and others.

Hence if one is rude to me I am rude back.

Call them idiots, why does the disabled person have the right to give **** to someone else?
the answer is they don't an anyone who backs the disabled person is probably disabled in the mind and doesn't think things through
