You may not be aware of this, but that roll of wrapping paper? Is right at neck level for individuals in wheelchairs. Who may also be trying to shop. And who would rather not be poked in the back of the neck with your purchases.
It would really help me out a lot if you took the time to notice that, um... hey, you have a big, long tube sticking out of your cart.
Like a lance.
That is aimed at my face.
And I would prefer it not to make contact with that face.
I realize it is just wrapping paper, but you are not leisurely strolling through the store, setting a snail's pace so that the roll barely grazes me. No, you are intent. You are on a mission to possess something that the store is probably already out of anyways, and you must get to where it is hiding, RIGHT NOW. And so, the force with which your festive cardboard bayonet pierces me is surprisingly strong.
And yes, I am taking into consideration that I have a very low pain tolerance level, but I also submit that anyone would be, at the very least, uncomfortable with all these dangerous weapons encroaching on them.
Also? Should your wrapping paper lance make contact with my body, the appropriate thing to do is not to glare at me as if I have somehow floated in, invisibly, in order to spear myself on your roll of wrapping paper. Surprised? Indeed, the correct response might be to ask if I am all right, or to apologize for ramming an object from your cart into my head. Just a suggestion.
