Why do some people think we don’t have a brain?
For the past 3 years I have used a mobility scooter because of a foot injury, and at airports have used special assistance - a wheelchair with a member of staff pushing me. I was amazed at the way I was treated by some airport staff; when I went to show our passports one member of staff ignored me and asked to speak to the person pushing my chair, another member of staff when pushing me through the airport spoke exclusively to my husband. I felt like saying “it’s my foot not my brain!” Being treated like this has put me off going on holidays where I have to travel by air. Disabled people have a right to be treated with respect like anyone else. Could airports not invest some of their budget to educate staff in this respect?
