Thrown off the Bus
A man who uses a wheelchair in Georgia has been denied access to county busses because he is overweight.
The article states that the county banned him because the combined weight of him and his wheelchair was “putting a strain on hydraulic systems used to lift him onto the bus.”
Apparently the equipment they are using is rated at 750lbs, and his weight with his wheelchair is 680lbs. But they are still refusing to allow him on the bus.
What the fuck!!!!! I am Shinobi’s rage.
When I first read the title I was concerned that it was goign to be all about the fatty taking up too many seats. But this is even more concerning, here we have a man who relies on the bus for his transportation and they are refusing to help him, even though they clearly can.
It’s just messed up. I don’t even know what to say.
