What’s wrong with these pictures?

Our consequences: having to carefully navigate Bill’s manual wheelchair on the curb cut and hugging very close to the edge of the curb, to then have to push Bill up the slippery snow-covered ramp causing the snow to get all over Bill’s shoes and pants.  Keep in mind, I was dressed nice for our Valentine’s Day brunch and wearing almost 4” heels.

Their consequences:  rolling into this establishment, through the side (and only) accessible entrance with a large amount of snow falling off the wheelchair tires, rims, and footplate leaving a snowy and slushy  trail all the way to the bar at the opposite side of the restaurant, where we sat.  This, of course, left the hardwood floors wet and slippery, caused commotion among the diners and wait-staff and ultimately created a puddle of melting snow under Bill’s wheelchair at the bar.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
