I've had a lot of different experiences with guests but I've never almost be rundown by one. On Friday I was busy cashiering and I had just stepped over to scan a guests pet food when I hear a crash and turn to see a different guest in a electric cart in the spot I usually stand. She had gone full speed into my register, moving it about an inch in the force of the crash. If it wasn't for the fact that only a second before I had stepped over to scan the cat food, I'd have been on my way to the ER. She was all apologetic and claimed she didn't know what happened. She was lucky no one got hurt. The woman was about 80 and quite dithery. :unknw: I've often thought that there needs to be training for some to use those carts. We could do it on a quiet day, set up cones in the side parking lot and make them have to be able to go through them without knocking them over or they don't get to drive the carts. I'm joking of course, but this incident really has freaked me out. I'm only 5' tall, if I hadn't moved in that one second before the crash, well I think I'd be either in hospital or on LOA recovering from injuries, the cart would have caught me just above hip level.
