How Do I Make This Wheely Simple?

, , , | Right | March 11, 2019

(I work in an amusement park. I’m going off for my break when I see a coworker helping a man and his wife, who is in a wheelchair, onto the ride.)

Husband: “My wife is in a wheelchair, so…”

Coworker: “It’s fine. She can leave it on the platform and pick it up afterward. We’ll watch it; it won’t get stolen.”

Wife: “Why can’t I bring it on?”

Coworker: “There are chairs on the ride.”

Wife: “But I need a wheelchair. I paid for this! It wasn’t cheap, you know!”

Coworker: “You’re not moving anywhere. Only the ride moves; you’ll be strapped into a seat.”

Wife: “I. Need. A. Wheelchair.”

Coworker: “Let me get my supervisor to explain to you.”

Wife: “What’s there to explain? You’re not allowing a disabled woman to use her rights! I have the right to be treated the same as everyone else! I. Need. This. Wheelchair!”

(I was so glad I was going on break!)
