FOWC with Fandango: Permit

img_4518

After driving around in a wheelchair for more than two years I no longer need a permit, but today I did something I have never done. I had a few items I forgot to buy yesterday and really did not want to take the car to the supermarket. I also wanted to go into town for a look around. We have a new supermarket just along the road – photo from the opening day. I decided to enter this  supermarket and shop in my wheelchair. I wheeled down the road and entered.

The entrance was wide enough  and so were the walkways between the shelves. One of the assistants, who seemed to be a sort of manager, said that if I have any problems I should just ask, so what could be better. I quite enjoyed the new experience. I discovered the entrance to the cash tills was wide enough for a wheelchair, but very tight fitting and exact steering technology in a straight line was required, but I did it. A small step for me but a big step for my wheelchair

I now have untold possibilities for shopping as I realised I can do it – no problem. Who needs a permit. I am an expert.

    • It’s a feeling of triumph in a way. I remember when the wheelchair was new. It was least half a year until I dared to go into town with it. Now I am at least once a week in town with it, if not more. And now I go shopping with it in the local store and it works.
