On the 14 September 2002 I decided to go around
town with Chris and Andy. On our pub-crawl we went in to the
Venue pub. The access is good in this pub; however, I decided
I needed to go to the toilet. We entered the massive disabled
toilet. We thought wow this is good, before we discovered
the toilet was blocked. There wasnt a knob on the tap
so no water. And finally the dryer didnt work. We came
out of the toilet. I told Chris I wanted to see the manager.
He went to the bar to ask for him, they replied the manager
is too busy. Chris explained more to them. Finally someone
came to me, we started telling him what the problems were
in the toilet but he basically wasnt listening to us.
So I said, lets go and show him So I marched him
to the disabled toilet and showed him the problems. Lets just
say he was a bit surprised. A few minutes later he came back
to us in the pub and he apologized and we got free drinks.
Lets hope the toilet is sorted out before I return again.
(I will be back!)
We decided to go to LAs Nightclub, on the way we went
down a short cut, I said, my god I need a pee.
Chris said, can you see any toilets around here, you
fool? And then we saw this amazing disabled toilet. I have
lived in Hull all my life and I hadnt seen it before.
The toilet even had a bed, I said, I know where to come
now if my mum throws me out. Hehe
Anyway I will stop talking about toilets now in this story
as you may think I have an obsession with toilets. In the
nightclub we met up with some more friends. By this time we
were a bit inebriated, we decided to go on the dance floor.
I was dancing in my wheelchair and then Wendy decided to take
me out of my chair and let me dance on my knees. All my mates
were around me dancing and I was in the middle of the circle
with this woman who was on her knees too. Maybe we were starting
a new trend of dancing? Copyright © Karl Dean

We were dancing for about 30mins before we had a little problem
with a man. I didnt notice this man as I was too busy
dancing with a woman.(ohh baby) Apparently he thought my mates
was taking the P**** out of me. (Probably they were, in a
joking way) He was becoming a bit aggressive, so Wendy told
the bouncers about the man. Suddenly we had loads of bouncers
around us. I thought whats going on? I even had a flash
back about circus circus pub. They sorted the man out and
told me to get back in my chair for unknown reasons. But we
didnt argue with the big bouncers. At least I didnt
get kicked out unlike circus circus pub.
On the way home to Chriss house, we had a little too
much to drink. (That is an understatement) We were walking
along on Spring Bank road, suddenly we hit a bump in the footpath.
My chair was on top of me and Andy was laid on the floor laughing.
Chris was kneeling on the floor talking to me. Imagine the
picture there was 3 men laid on the floor with an upside down
wheelchair. At this moment, an ambulance was driving passed
us. Thats was good timing eh? They stopped and helped
us. I cut my head a bit, as you can see from the photo. Andy
cut his hand
and Chris twisted his ankle. When we got sorted out we went
for a pizza and then we went to Chriss house to eat
them. However we fell asleep halfway through eating them.
The next morning there was pizza all over his carpet. It was
a scene from Men behaving badly TV show. We were playing pranks
on each other when we woke up. Andy was trying to shave my
head but I was too quick for him. We also had a pizza fight.
I think we were still drunk! Tut tut. When we stopped playing
these stupid pranks we tidied up and I changed into my clean
clothes as my Mum was coming to pick me up in 30mins. Suddenly
Andy picked up the shaver and told Chris to hold me down and
he shaved a bit of my hair. Chris thought he would pretend
to do it, but no he really did. (Dont worry I always
get my sweet revenge.) I thought oh no!I cant go out
like this with a bald patch. So we decided to shave my head
on a number 1 grade. I usually get number 2 grades anyway.
So we quickly shaved my head before my mum came to pick me
up. She didnt notice my new hair cut so I havent
told her yet.
Over all we had a great night!

A few weeks later, we went back to the Venue pub to see if
the disabled toilet was repaired. To ours astonishment the
toilet was 100% repaired. I wanted to thank the manager but
he was too busy to come and see me.
Thanks Venue for repairing the toilet!
