This falls into the " you're only imagining all we notice is your disability" column

Paul Harris of the UK, who recently went blind, received a letter from contractors about to do modifications on his home that began with "Dear Mr Blindman" on Wednesday. The company said his disability was "mistakenly entered on its database" and apologized.

Apparently his disability information was placed into the name column.

"I was literally horrified that they can send anything through the post saying 'Dear Mr Blindman' about your disability," said Mr Harris. "I was just so shocked.

"You wouldn't send a letter to a person who's got Down's Syndrome saying Dear Mr Down's Syndrome would you?"
