    Stumbled onto this article today, it was posted on 17 July tho. Anyway, I know that she's old, but isn't it common sense to use an elevator instead?

    She's probably going to sue them now for not posting adequate warnings or not having wheelchair-accessible escalators. Separate but equal isn't equal!

    I've actually seen people take the escalators with their wheelchairs. They have to drive up onto the steps backwards and kind of tilt back slightly. The dude I saw doing it recently had no problems and did it so effortlessly you could tell he did it alot and was in total control of his chair. Although it was not a big motorized one, just a standard arm powered one

    Well, some old people like to stay challenged as they age. :p 

    ------------------------


    Holy God - how do they have time to make it happen? I mean, seriously, the "docking" window isn't really that big.

    :sly2: 

    -----------------------



    I'd feel the same if everyone else in the world were 100% perfect and total geniuses...





    ...but they're not.

    I'll probably be doing the same thing when Im old. Trying to get up them, falling down and shit. Damn those f*cking stairs!

    I already fall down when my legs fall asleep from taking a poop.

    as long as they put a sign that obese people are not allowed to use the said wheelchair escalators. a little walking wont kill you, fatty.

    ...ok it might but they'll die exercising

    only dimly related, but...

    I walk with a walking frame (busted knee), and don't go out much. it pisses me right off when I do actually go to the store (supermarket), and all the electric trolleys are being used by people who are simply too overweight to walk. want to try standing up, fat ass? some of us are actually crippled here

    that said, I'm sure old people think something similar when they see me using one (I'm not old)

    I'm confused why does she need a wheelchair if she can walk down an escalator?
