Disabling The Able Disabled

| Wichita, KS, USA | Bad Behavior, Health & Body

(I have been in a wheelchair since age three. Despite this, I can push my own cart just fine while wheeling myself around. A customer in the store notices me.)

Customer: “Ma’am, do you need help? One of my kids can help you push your cart.”

Me: “No, thank you; I am doing just fine.”

Customer: “But you’re disabled! You can’t do anything on your own!”

(The customer tries to grab the cart. I hold onto it.)

Me: “I can do it just fine on my own, thank you!”

Customer: “See, that’s the problem these days! You people not accepting help!”
