Outright Pram Discrimination

Any perambulator might be discriminated against, in any service providers building or anywhere else, that does nothing to make it anything but difficult to take your pram or buggy into or onto something or somewhere where ordinary two legged persons may wander unhindered. I thought I could argue the toss stating that it wasn't suitable for wheelchairs, but as long as some provisions are made for persons with disabilities, I for one of millions of buggy/pram users, are still neglected and therefore discriminated against, because our needs are not catered for in the 'Equality Act 2010'.angry
I have a twin tandem pram, and it's 73am wide open.Goes through most doors. But not my vets. Nor could i tackle the six various steps up to the door, because the doorbell at the rear for wheelchair users, doesn't work. And when i got inside, my perambulator would not get into any of the consultation rooms doors. They had to stay in the hallway!

Best. Thread. Title. Ever.

Its a pain in the arse when you can't get a buggy somewhere, but you have to factor that in when you're going places. Its not discrimination.

OP asked a question [i think]

Then went to bed the vets,never to be seen again.

They put her down the ramp and sent her home in a pushchair.

Maybe she's still there, trying to get the doorbell to work?

YANBU (even though you didn't ask that).

I became extremely cross last week, when I sent Nanny out with the DC and she couldn't fit the perambulator into the hackney. It was most inconvenient to have to send the ducal carriage out, just when I was hoping to nip into town and buy new ribbons for my new bonnet.
