Grocery Cart Physical Therapy

I’m on a role again, and I don’t mean with my grocery cart.

However, I’ve noticed a new trend in the sport of shopping-cart-pushing and actually, instead of pushing, the new sport requires players to lean on the cart in such a manner that it holds them up. The aisles of my local market now look like a sort of physical therapy facility where “patients” use grocery carts instead of crutches or braces to aid their mobility. And, we’re not talking seniors; this trend has coaxed all ages and all sexes to join in.

Have you seen the movie “Wall-E?” This grocery cart trend reminds me of the humans in that movie who were sent to a space station to be saved after global devastation. There they became so fat and immobile, they required the use of high-tech, air-born sleds to move around. But …WALL_E_fat_chair

…the outcome for the Wall-E humans was positive, and very sweet. Will the outcome for the grocery-cart players be thusly so?
