I as others have read an ex fitness freak who now has back/ shoulders / severe joints problems among a large list of things wrong I have to walk with a stick ,sitting a problem and I'm not allowed to lift anything as I've recently has another op in one shoulder and the other needs a replacement. Now this has happened a few times but today took the biscuit, we went into a large supermarket and my wife wanted some compost which was in a silly place at the back of a large store.we asked customer services for help as I can't lift anything at all, now I'm very muscular apart from my fat a nice gift from lyrica!! When the outside porter came in he was much older than I ,asked where the soil was, he looked me over and then started to ask why could I not lift , I told him why and I had an op recently on my arm and back so he then started to moan at me about his problems with his shoulders and he was 63 etc and how old was I !! He then said can you give me a lift I refused and said if you can't do it get someone else, he just put the bags in the cart then moaned about his problems ,I just said look outside I look terrible but there's other stuff going on with me that I can't tell you , at that he said oh another one of them under his breath!! So at the till he disappears and when we get outside we shout him over very politely we said customer services said you could put them in our car, he then started the whole moaning bit again and my wife rolled her eyes at me because he went on and on- then he said are you not able to work then I said no I've lost my job......to which he said oh very nice the government given you a car then, I wish I could get one free!!! And on he went so I told him flatly the car is MINE ! And off I went ..... so do I report him and he possibly might lose his job or do I ignore it? I got the impression he was predjucice about illness and the entitlements we struggle to get and those you can't get like my car! It was very offensive and my wife said if he was so ill with pain he shouldn't turn in, she said she could feel the atmosphere between him and us. It was a horrible experience and as I'm a laid back person it must have been bad to upset me ....
