A few days ago in a parking lot in Lisbon wheelchair users and volunteers occupied all the available Non-Handicap spaces to make a point to able-bodied motorists what it is like to have “their” parking places unavailable to them.
On every wheelchair various notes were left like: "be right back", "it only takes a moment", "I’m get something here", etc.
Reblogged this yesterday from a different source, but I think this photograph is more powerful.
I love this so much I’ll reblog it a million times!
I get a less talked about response from people when I park in a disabled bay. I am registered disabled, I have a blue badge (which is stuck to my dashboard for all to see) but because I don’t look disabled, I get filthy looks from able-bodied people. I’ve even had people come up to me by the car and have a go at me for parking in disabled bays.
Just because someone doesn’t look disabled, doesn’t look like they have difficulty, doesn’t look like they are in pain, doesn’t mean they aren’t.
He looks so proud of himself. Like “Look at meeee! I cen make joke like ze Ceptin!”
