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.

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.
