How it all started

I was wanting a taxi and after three had gone by my son said go around the corner. Within seconds a car pulled up, he opened the door then call for me to get in. The driving got out the ramp and helped me in.

What I did to try to overcome it

Asked him why they don't want to pick up wheelchair users, he simply said it takes too long.

How it made me feel


The outcome

He gave us his card and said if we need a taxi call him.
