I’m Astounded! Almost lost for words but not quite! A blind acquaintance of mine who I follow on Twitter, visited a carpet shop this morning in order to buy a rug. The lady in the shop said she couldn’t sell him one because she wouldn’t want it on her conscience if he fell over it.
She presumably would be happy to sell rugs to other people, otherwise she’d have said that she didn’t sell them.
I don’t know whether to feel steaming angry about this or laugh somewhat hysterically. Again and again, people think its OK to influence our lives and put restrictions upon us purely because they are too stupid to actually think outside the box.
I do hope Ian will be blogging about this. His blog can be found at http://ianbev72.wordpress.com
