I can understand where you are coming from on this one as I
do not like answering the door to Trick or Treaters. Having said that I quite
like the Halloween celebrations although did not have a party this year. If you want someone to blame, blame it on the
Americans as they created it.

In addition, is it possible to control the speed of uploading as it appears to be quite slow on mine when I jump from post to post. Anyone else experiencing this?

Thanks for the welcomes guys. I see this board has become quite popular already, hence is has replaced the original one. It is just a case of thinking of something to post due to its already popularity.

I have nothing to say about this other than it is very wrong for Hospitals to charge Disabled drivers to partk their cars. FGS, do us a favour.

I don’t know if this one has been posted already, but I will
do so anyway.
As we all know both Disability & Shopping is a daily
battle. How does your disability affect you when you shop? For me, it is
finding the right items and getting to know the layout store. I usually spot
product by colours and certainly pay close attention to the offers J.
Although being a symbol cane user makes it twice a difficult when it comes to
having to lug the shopping back home. Therefore, I can’t do two things at once.
I find it really annoying when the assistants in the shop
can’t be asked to help me. My most recent trip to the Supermarket, was on
Saturday at my local Morrissons store. When I approached the till, I saw the
cashier was sat down. She asked me if I needed help with packing, I replied,
yes, explaining that I was visually impaired. She got up from her seat and started bagging up the scanned items. To
me that showed a sign of relief that she wanted to help me, of course threre
are some out there that can’t be asked. Which is very wrong.Of course there is two sides to every story, although we can only do our best.

I see there are no of introductory posts already on this forum, some of which contain vast a number of threads. Ah well, not to worry, I will just start a new one.
A bit about myself. I am a visually impaired person, from the Midlands area and found this forum via the old Ouch website. My interests consist of: Meeting with friends & family, going out for a drink, music, photography, and meeting new people.
I know this seems a little short although don't want to ramble to much in a first post.
All the best Nicey
