Should all inconveniences be banned?



Regarding complaints about strollers at the Christmas Made in the South craft show (letters, Nov. 12 and 18), I used to believe baby strollers at the craft show were an inconvenience also, but I yearned to be pushing one of them. I now have the opportunity, because I have been blessed with two wonderful grandchildren and I couldn't be happier.

My daughter and I proudly push those strollers anywhere and everywhere we go. We enjoy going places together, and I am glad that she chooses to take her children with her and not look for a "mother's-day-out center." Her children miss her when she works; why should she leave them when she doesn't have to?

What will be attacked next? The elderly can be very slow in walking; some people are on crutches; and let's not forget those in wheelchairs. Should we just ban everyone who might slow us down? And while we're at it, I guess we could ask the craft-show people to not have Santa Claus there because that is sure to bring out the children. I think not.

In the meantime, if you don't like the inconvenience, maybe you should think about staying home, and let us push our strollers without having to watch out for you. But if you decide to go, we'll see you there in the spring!
