Disabled maths

Shop Till You Drop
1 + 0 = 2

Why is it when your out shopping in your wheelchair, people assume that the person next to/behind you is with you? Maybe its your carer etc. Got annoyed today went out to my local supermarket and got a few items, and the lady straight away hands the bag to the man standing behind me! Helloooo, it's my shopping that I've just paid for thank you very much.

1 + 1 = 1

And while I'm moaning about shops, which is one of my favorite passtimes, why is it when you're asked if you would like "all your shopping in one bag" and you say 'yes', do they then proceed to put it into 2 bags so 'its not too heavy'? Honestly, it's sitting on my lap so 1 bag or 2 really does weight the same! It doesn't magically make it any lighter.

I know what you mean about shop assistants. One of my pet hates is when I have paid for something, I'VE handed the money to the assistant MYSELF, and they insist on handing the change to Kier who is standing behind me - like HELLO remember ME the person who handed you the money - and how do they know he is with me anyway he could be just in the queue waiting to pay. Gggggggrrrrrrrr don't get me started lol

I was at the cinema once, in the popcorn queue. The woman behind the counter served the person two in front of me...served the person one in front of me...served the person behind me!!!

As my mother would say in a good old Scottish phrase, I didn't miss her and hit the wall ;-)

We need to change the world to put a halt to these attitudes, any ideas? It's my goal to create a friendly world where everyone is accepted... one step at a time!
