Wonderful story. Glad he got a new chair and these guys fixed his so he could move.
I'm in a wheelchair and store clerks are running over to me offering assistance as soon as I enter the stores.
I'm quite certain they are encouraged to help because if you injure yourself in their store, they could be held liable.
I can stand up and will do so to reach something. There will be a clerk rushing over to me so fast when I do this, "oh no, no . I can get that for
you. Please ask for assistance. We don't want you to get hurt".
Some appear to panic as I enter, like we gotta watch this one.
So yes, this all feels very nice when people help. Customers are offering help. Strangers offer to give me a push if the doors aren't automatic. I
really appreciate it. I get stuck sometimes. I need the help but am not one to ask.
My chair is always breaking. Like the little front wheel falls off and I'm completely stuck. Can't move. It's very expensive to get it serviced. I
pay it myself. Not a vet. Sometimes the entire side collapses. They're like cars. They break down. Get flat tires. Need tune ups. Really though, they
aren't cars, these are our legs!
All help is appreciated. It makes you feel good. There's some very nice people in this world.
