Its bad enough when retailers and businesses are stupid when it comes to the disabled but check this out?

When we the wheelchair using public regularly are told by businesse “just walk up the stairs and then get back in your chair” or “of course were accessible bring a friend to lift you up the stairs” you’ll be fine and so much more the words of forest gump come to mind “Stupid is as stupid does”.
But for a company that makes its living making the very accessibility equipment that the law demands businesses to install to be so thoughtlessly stupid as in the picture below is inexcusable.

IN CASE OF FIRE USE STAIRS comes standard printed as advice for occupants of a wheelchair elevator? the only reason you install this is because the very people using it have no ability to use stairs many have no ability to stand or walk. If this was on a piece of paper taped to it you could blame the store or business owner but in the factory where wheelchair lifs and elevators are made? Someone has the job of designing ,making a template tooling the machinery adding colored dyes producing and attaching it to every wheelchair elevator that goes out the door.

The only thing that could make this even more ridiculous is to have a flight of stairs to get to it? think I am kidding, Ella and I were in Manhattan the other day and new restaurant was under construction and about to open the next day we were excited they had a wheelchair ramp but,and I kid you not there were two steps at the top of the ramp.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
