Outright Pram Discrimination

(34 Posts)

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

EchoBitch Fri 16-Nov-12 00:38:26

Oh frick,i am wrong.

Howzat for an admission?

EchoBitch Fri 16-Nov-12 00:34:53

GretaGip Fri 16-Nov-12 00:34:16

You're not wrong there, EchoBi.


EchoBitch Fri 16-Nov-12 00:31:55

Wibu to suggest op needs to purchase a Fucking Grip as well as a smaller perambulator?

Echo yes, it is Vicky. You're right.... Have we a time traveller in our midst?

EchoBitch Fri 16-Nov-12 00:03:24

Perambulator is earlier than 50s.

More Victorian i'd guess,even my Granny called them pushchairs (and so did i) but not buggies.

Is this quietlysuggests MIL again?

valpollicella Thu 15-Nov-12 23:57:02

Get a sling and a umbrella fold pushchair?

You arent being discriminated against - you chose that perambulator (arf. Are we in the 50's)

It doesnt fit? Change it. Many wheelchair users dont have that option. They are being discriminated against

Surely a doctor's is a more appropriate place to take children for treatment anyway. Just a thought.

MrsHoarder Thu 15-Nov-12 23:46:48

Can't you carry the child? Use a bike luck on the pram if you worry about it.

GretaGip Thu 15-Nov-12 23:45:21

Worms and fleas, maybe, but ramps? Not sure.

Sunnywithachanceofshowers Thu 15-Nov-12 23:45:08

Using a pram is not a protected characteristic, therefore it does not fall under the Equalities Act.

EchoBitch Thu 15-Nov-12 23:44:46

Why didn't you KNOCK at the back door for wheelchair users if the door bell had run out of battery hens

EchoBitch Thu 15-Nov-12 23:43:26

Anyway,back to the vets.

Don't they have ramps?

EchoBitch Thu 15-Nov-12 23:42:02

It's a while since i were a teenage deer er dear.

GretaGip Thu 15-Nov-12 23:36:49

But can you shepherd them thruogh the door, Maria?

<<doe, a deer, a teenage deer>>

EchoBitch Thu 15-Nov-12 23:36:19
