I have two beefs about being blind.  

One is all the time I waste waiting on transportation, whether paratransit,
fixed route, or family and friends, some of whom have forgotten me a number
of times.

The other is having people talk around me and, instead, ask the person
accompanying me, in restaurants, doctors' offices, etc.

Hi all,

 

Another blind TABI user and I were talking today about how blindness is a
"bitch". I'm putting it out there as "What's your beef about being blind".

I'll start the thread with You can't see what's coming at you from any
location. For example,you might be walking to a bus stop and a vehicle is
speeding up and you might be in peril, or you might be attracting unwanted
attention.

Tell us what's your beef!
