Yesterday was a fun day!
Usually whenever I go out into the community, I always have some form of identity; something screams “This man is Blind!” or “This man has a mobility issue!”.
Yesterday, however I went incognito, because I wanted to have both hands available to help my mom and aunt get from home, onto a bus, then onto the Skytrain. They had two suitcases and a walker filled with travel necessaries. They are going on a cruise!
Anyhow, we got to our goal (Skytrain) without any problems, and Mum & her sister got on the Skytrain and zoomed all the way to the airport! That was part of the adventure!
So, after that, I was hungry and wanted to get something to eat, but opted to eat at home.
I first needed to use the bathroom. I head to a mall and zip upstairs, zip in & out of the bathroom and then try a different way to get downstairs. Through the parking lot!
I find one door, but see a “Emergency Exit” so avoid that door. I walk a bit and find another door, which has glass on the door, like the one into the parking lot. So I head to that and zoom through, only to be greeted by a quiet “rrrah rrrah rrrah” or something like that. Oh great, the door was alarmed! Had I been hearing, it would have probably been “RRRRRAAAHHHH” instead a minor whimper.
I don’t bother to stop, just keep going! I’m in the back hall. You know, “Employees only” areas! Where employees can goof off and be their true customer-hating selves! Big grin!
I find a way out of this area, and then exit the mall. I did not make any “mad dash” to freedom because I had done nothing wrong.
It is obvious that the alarm was not a true emergency alarm, but more like a warning for employees who wanted to play hooky!
I was such a rebel without my white cane!
Have a good day!
