When the shopping cart went haywire

I still smile to myself each time I remember this particular incident. One moment I was hanging on to my shopping cart and the next the wind had taken it away from me and I was left without my cart.

It was a cold winter's day when this took place. I had just finished my grocery shopping and there I was, standing outside waiting on the cab to arrive. I thought that I was hanging on tightly enough, but alas! No! An unexpected gust of cold wind rose up and before I could react my shopping cart was wrenched from my hands.

I simply felt the cart leaving my hands while at the same time I heard it moving away. No time to stand still! I began to reach frantically for it using my cane to help me out. I began to panic!

I moved forward and then backward and then left and then right! I swept my cane in all directions! No one to help me! The wind continued to blow strong and hard!

Then help came! A kind passer-by came to my rescue when he saw what was happening. He rescued my shopping cart and brought it safely back to me! My shopping cart had drifted several feet away from me! All ended well!

Dear Readers:
This is a personal request from me for you to join my campaign against bullying (CAB).

In 2012 I launched my own campaign against bullying in response to appeals from friends and associates. I decided to try something new and here it is.

You can support my campaign against bullying (CAB) and in return for your valuable contribution I will send you a thank you gift. Visit to learn more. I will use all contributions to promote workshops to help others protect themselves from bullying and teach them how to launch their own anti bullying campaigns.

In addition, I will produce blogs and podcasts to help me spread my campaign and to convince others to do the same.

You may also visit my online store at and browse through my selections.

Help me to stop the spread of bullying and to show others how to combat bullies.
