I want to start by saying that this isn't an attack on anyone with a disability - just a couple of observations that I made a couple weeks ago. I went into City Hall to make a compliment and a guy in a wheelchair (and a friend) were ranting a raving to a poor cm. He was complaining that he was waiting for the train and the one he was told that he'd have to wait for the next train, because this one wasn't equipped for wheelchairs. So, he waited 5 minutes for another train, and he was not even acknowledged and the train went on. So, he had to wait another 5 minutes in the heat! Which was totally unacceptable! (the rest of us had to wait 2-3 trains all day as well and were just as hot) Anyway, he was calling the ADA and going to write letters, blah, blah, blah. I just stood there staring. He was completely making a fool out of himself because he had to wait for 10 minutes to get on a train!
Next case. Splash Mountain. Now, people in wheelchairs get to go through the exit and bypass the 90-120 minute line. a woman came in and was furious because she had to get out of her chair to ride the ride. She let loose ranting about unequality and why the ride wouldn't fit her wheelchair, etc. Doesn't it state at the entrance of the rides if it's a transfer or non-transfer ride?
I realize this is just a few bad examples and no way was in the majority - but do people really feel that they can be that snotty? Disabled or not?
