Wheelchair! Wheelchair! What? Wheelchair coming through!
Wheelchair! Wheelchair! What? Wheelchair getting on!
Wheelchair! Wheelchair! What? Wheelchair getting off!
Shouts when I’m coming through.
Shouts when I’m getting on.
Shouts when I’m getting off.
Some understand and offer a helping hand. Many pout with the shout and make me feel like I’ve done something bad, it’s really sad.
Stop! There is no need to shout! That’s not what disability etiquette is all about. You don’t shout:
Hearing aide! Hearing aide!
My wheelchair is my mobility. Your job is to offer courteous accessibility. I’m not my wheelchair, and I nor my wheelchair need a loud introduction in order for you to function. Here’s a little advice, don’t shout. Please just be nice.
