    News Flash: Disabled People Are Still People

    My friend and I meet every Thursday for lunch at a local brewpub. My friend has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair.

    We’re seated by the hostess, who asks for our drink orders. We each ask for a pint. The hostess looks at me expectantly.

    Hostess: “Is that okay?”

    Me: “Is what okay?”

    Hostess: Motioning to my friend “Is he allowed to have beer?”

    Me: “I don’t know. Let me check.”

    I take out my cell phone and dial a number. My friend’s phone rings, and he answers.

    Me: “Hey, [Friend], this is [My Name]. We’re at [Restaurant], and they want to know if it’s okay for you to have a beer.”

    Friend: “I guess so. Just this once, though.”

    Me: To the hostess “He says that it’s okay.”

    The hostess just glared at us before leaving, and a few minutes later, a waiter brought us our pints and took our order.

    today IF they don’t have anything, which seems to be 90% of the time, they just make it up. They know the triggered words to use so they can get clicks and likes – but they know nothing else about truth and facts. js

    Which, today, is easily solved by our inventive imaginations. Like George Costanza said, “It’s not a lie if you believe it.”
