Last year when things were starting to go down hill and we didn't have a solid diagnosis, we decided to find a mobility scooter for me. For the past few years I have rented them if we go to places like Disneyland or the state fair, and at $50-$100 per rental, it just didn't make financial sense. We kept an eye out on craigslist, and found a used scooter in cherry apple red.
I loved the thing. However, I noticed that using it, I get even more glares than I do with the scooters in big-box stores. People act like I stole the scooter from my grandma and decided to be lazy. Seriously - I have never gotten so many stink-eyes.
I'd like to fix the scooter up a little since I will probably be using it more. The front control panel sticker is worn, and I'd really like to make one out of wood veneer. Breaking out my wood-burning tool would be fun. It needs some new trim and a little crack fixed, but I'm sure Dad could handle that if I asked.
Back to the glares. I decided to show a little of my snarky nature, and add a bumper sticker. It took me awhile to come up with what I really wanted to say. Today I did it, and it has been added to my Zazzle store. Check it out:
Here's what my scooter looks like...except mine came pre-loved. It is pretty cushy. I just need to get a basket and a drink holder, and maybe one of those shade umbrellas that clip onto the back. Then I'll be rollin' in style.
