I went round town for my birthday in my powered
chair, I met my mates at my local pub (Crown). We had a few
beers in Crown before jumping into a taxi. Taxis nowadays
are so accessible, no need to arrange for a special taxi because
nearly all the black cabs and mini buses have ramps. And also
no more relying on Dial a ride patronizing disabled
Our first pub was Yates, it was packed but we
didnt have any problem getting in the pub. The pub has
a disabled toilet and also the ordinary toilets are accessible
as well. Pretty good eh! I think there is still a need for
a disabled toilet, if the ordinary toilets are accessible
because supposing I went out with a sexy woman. She wont
be able to come in the mens and Im not going in
the womens (well? Maybe he!he!) So there is a reason
for a disabled toilet
Anyway after Yates we went in to Maces pub access
going in the pub was fine, only a small step to climb up.
A friendly bouncer helped me up it. The next thing I needed
a bloody pee again. Guess what? Yeah! no disabled toilet and
the ordinary toilets are upstairs! So the friendly bouncer
said I could go in the back yard, so he opened the gates.
After doing the business my mate (Neil) emptied my pee bottle
in to the mob bucket for cleaning the floors. (tut tut) We
were thinking about putting it in this motorbike tank. (but
The final pub was flares, the bouncer basically said in a
rude manner, you cannot come in because I was in a wheelchair
as it is too packed. Then he tried dragging me out of
the doorway. So by now I was really mad. He thought he was
big enough (well, he was 6ft) and he could drag me outside.
Wrong! I put on my wheelchair turbo boost and dragged the
6ft bouncer into middle of the pub. I was on two wheels at
one point. Then I stopped in the middle of the pub, he was
still trying to drag me out but he couldnt move me.
Then this unknown woman started on the bouncer saying whats
the problem etc. and then my mates started on him saying what
about equal rights. After a while of arguing the bouncer said
to my mates it your fault if he runs anyone over. I think
it is ok going into packed places in a wheelchair if you have
someone in front of you clearing the gangway. For example
on the way out of flares I didnt run over anyone feets
due to my mates clearing everyone out of way. Do the bouncers
say no to fat people?
Few weeks later, I went round town and clubbing, we decided
to go into flares, we didnt had any problems getting
in this time, the bouncer said go into this corner near the
DJ so we did. I saw the bouncer who tried dragging me out
a few weeks ago, I told my mate to give him my story about
my birthday. The bouncer just thrown it on to the floor. (Can
he read?) So the Dj Picked it up and few minutes later stopped
the music and started to read it out but twisted the story
around, to made me look like the bad guy. Basically he was
saying awful things about me and he even called crown a dump!
By now I was really furious. Everyone was going mad at him,
my mates had to push me outside. There were loads of people
walking out. Even the cops came to see what is going on. The
manager came and sacked the DJ. Then the Dj came outside and
said to me, YOU GOT ME SACKED!!! I said good!
After this we went to Cheeky Monkeys, without any probs getting
in. Nice people in Cheeky monkeys. And then to LAs,
On the way to LAs I got stopped by a cop (ohh no! Im
in cells hehe) to see if we were ok, and to find out what
happened for his report.
The next day we had a meeting with the manager, she said
we are very sorry for last night. We have sacked the DJ. And
you are welcome anytime.
Few days later, a policeman called to tell me, he went to
see them, they said the Dj got sacked. The policeman said
is this good enough or do I want to put charges on the Dj.
I said sacking the DJ is good enough for me.
