For the last two weeks I’ve been taking trips to places, like I was going to do in a post. For those new followers who read my lil corner here, I’m wheelchair bound, so I need to take the MTA Your Ride service, which can be one ass pain to schedule a trip, but they have gotten better in a small way. The first week was great, I had to wait a bit for pickup, but hey, got sun, & didn’t burst into flames like a vampire. 🙂
Driver was nice, talked to me as a human and got me to the hobby shop asap. Home trip, same, good, but last week’s trip to the same place, the driver pissed my ass off. We get there and she tells me to move the wheelchair some so she could get the front restraint off, I did. She then flips out, telling me “Don’t you dare move, I need to unstrap you, don’t you touch anything!” four damn times. I told her I wasn’t about to do shit, but in my head I was a bit more harsh! Blame me?
I’ll still use the service to get places, but drivers like her shouldn’t work with that service, thoughts? Years ago, there was some plan to put a subway in and make the city a little more modern. However, like our aging power grids, guessing the powers that be can’t be bothered.
