Not Fine When He’s In Line, Either

| MN, USA | Working | February 3, 2013

(My husband (mentioned here) and his cousin are visiting a popular ice cream parlor. My husband is in a wheelchair, while his cousin is able bodied.)

Worker: *to cousin* “Can I help you?”

Cousin: *orders*

Worker: “Anything else?”

My Husband: “I’ll have—”

Worker: *to cousin* “Your total is [price].”

(Both her and the other worker continue to ignore my husband as he attempts to order.)

My Husband: *to cousin* “Let’s go.”

Cousin: “You’re not going to order anything?”

My Husband: “Apparently they don’t realize that just because I’m handicapped, it doesn’t mean I can’t like ice cream!”
