When Ann Landers told off a reader who complained about having to watch a disabled woman eating in a restaurant because she wanted her rights respected, a bevy of folks wrote in with gems of their own on this issue.
One suggested a special section for handicapped folk - perhaps with palm trees "so they are not seen by" other diners. Another reader claimed handicapped folk just like to flaunt their disabilities to make able bodied people feel guilty (yes, it's all about them!) and he/she is too savvy to fall for that trap (watch out if you live in Sacramento for this one). A third one accused relatives of parading handicapped folk around- to make themselves look good.
Ann Landers says these folks are too far gone to write back too.
Sadly, this doesn't surprise me. I've run into some of these folks out there.
