They say the only difference between a good day and a bad day is how you look at it. If you have a smile on your face, your mind will feel like there’s an actual reason for you to be smiling up to 30% of the time. If you count to 10 before feeling malaise, you will have spent your last 10 seconds free of malaise. When you have to do something you don’t want to do, just think: How would I feel if I did want to do it? Life is what you make of it. So before you go off into your day carrying a list of negativity — say, you have to go to the boring bank, or you have to clean the stupid house, or you have to listen to the neighbor’s baby crying constantly, so often and with such intensity that you genuinely feel something might be wrong with it — just think: Wouldn’t this be better if I weren’t being such a NEGATIVE CREEP about it? Wouldn’t it be better if I took a task I didn’t want to do and turned it into a fun adventure, letting my imagination soar and my smile widen? Wouldn’t it be better if I just let my grandma drag me through Target with her motorized wheelchair, as if I were flying through the (horribly dirty) air?

  1. Typical. You would never see such undiginified behavior at a Wal-Mart.

  2. it’s all fun and games until grandma’s battery dies and they’re stranded in the parking lot.

  3. So that’s how Aston Kutcher and Demi Moore first met.

  4. I am a germaphobe and all I can think about is the proximity of that kid’s face to the floor and people walking on that floor with their filthy shitty shoes. It’s like Contagion x1000.

  5. You think Grandma knows the kid is there, or he’s a stowaway?

  6. Guys, I think that kid works there. He’s wearing a red shirt.

  7. Dudes, this is a living editorial cartoon: that kid is Paul Ryan (R-WI) and he is coming for Granny’s Medicare-supplied hoveround, and the Target is the politics of entitlement spending in the United States, and the woman laughing with the camera is Justice Antonin Scalia. The whole thing just needs big labels to make it work.

  8. this is definitely the most fitting caption i have seen so far. I am the little boy’s mother. The woman driving the scooter is my grandmother who has recently had extensive brain surgery. She has been immobile for a few years and was not able to go hardly anywhere. She was hesitant about getting the scooter because of embarrassment. My family finally talked her into getting a portable one. This was her first real outing on it. We were out of town at a target. When she came around the corner pulling Riley, she was smiling and laughing, as was he. They were quiet, and it was late. I just watched giggling to myself. They began to draw a crowd. When he realized he was getting attention, he started showing out, doing tricks as if he was water-skiing. They had a blast. Since this video has been posted, my grandmother has had been admitted to the hospital. She has been able to view it on our laptop. Watching the video gives her hope and a good reason to hurry and get better!
