Why being in a wheelchair doesn't suck
Part four in a weekly series.
Let's face it: there are a lot of times when being in a wheelchair sucks. You can't take a "jump shot" to beat the buzzer, you'll never know the thrill of falling out of a tree, and you have to spend more money repairing walls and doors than the average dude.
But sometimes, being in a wheelchair doesn't suck. Let's take a look at one reason: you have an instant chair wherever you go.
Having an instant chair is very helpful in numerous situations. You can't get tired while waiting in line at the grocery store. At an outdoor concert, you don't need to bring a folding chair or blanket. If someone steals all of the chairs to a table at Starbucks, you still have the option of sitting there. And if you're on a crowded train or subway car, you don't need to vie for a seat because you were smart and brought your own!
Of course, one of the most important reasons to use a wheelchair: chicks dig having a portable seat on which to rest their weary legs. And it's our duty to provide that.
