Got a domestic squabble I need input on.
Shopping in the supermarket with the missus, there’s a guy in a wheelchair reaching for something on a higher shelf, I say “Want me to get that for ya?”, he just says “No thanks”, I think nothing of it.
Get back to the car and I get mildly scolded that I shouldn’t have offered unless asked as it’s patronising to assume he’d want help from a stranger, that it’s an independence thing. I don’t think I was stamping on his independence, I was just being polite.
But then assholes usually don’t know they’re assholes, so I need some outsider input. Whadya reckon?
