Shopping Hazard Ahead

I wandered across to the shopping centre yesterday to stock up on lunch supplies for the week and almost got run down by a woman who was talking on a mobile phone.

I could hardly believe it. She wasn’t paying any attention to where she was going. She was so absorbed in her conversation that she didn’t even notice me.

Her front wheels were only about a metre away from me when I dashed out of the way. If I hadn’t been payin attention she would have run right into me. I wonder how it would have been if I were an older person who couldn’t move so quickly to avoid the collision.

I think that supermarkets should be forced to put up big signs warning shoppers that they shouldn’t be talking on a mobile phone while operating shopping trolleys. (That’s shopping carts for US readers.)
