How to Insult an Old Lady

So this is what I learned last night: If you are trying to figure out who owns a lone walker randomly taking up space in the back of the church, don't say, "Excuse me, is this your walker?" to the only old lady you see even if you are 99% sure it has to be hers.
It might not be hers.
She might say, "ls that my walker? No! Not yet anyway."
Afterward, you will realize the question would have been better phrased by saying, "Excuse me, do you happen to know who this walker belongs to?"
That would have been way nicer for everyone.

Oh dear! it's hard to get it right.
