Would you mind if I crossposted this to friendly_crips?
Of course not! Please do!
Also? I really need to learn how to bump my own chair down steps.THIS SO MUCH! I can't even figure out how to curb jump! I agree with pretty much all you said.
I have actually been told that I need to get the center of my wheelchair's gravity adjusted, because it's interfering with my ability to do wheelies, which is what you need for curb jumping and step jumping.After I lean thisI SHALL RULE THE WORLD
I'm a little unclear why the former model's agent thinks he "can't" get her modeling jobs. Obviously she can't go *walking* down the catwalk at a major event...but there are plenty of still shots for a variety of products that don't require the participants to be mobile. Hell, if the advertiser's that freaked out, don't even show her in a wheelchair. Put her in a furniture chair, seat her on the ground, a park bench, etc. Taking her out of the chair wouldn't be my first choice, as I don't believe she has anything to be ashamed of, but if the physical chair itself is the stumbling block, suggesting ways around it might help her land some jobs.
I think the problem here is that he was a dickface?
Sometimes I need a "like" button.
How are you?! I haven't seen you 'round these parts for a 'coon's age!
