You are completely correct of course, but what many of us see pushes the envelope of probability.
If I were handicapped, I would be conscious of public perception. As in, I would keep the jumping up out of my scooter and flitting about seemingly effortlessly to a minimum. Especially in high crowd stress situations.
This story is a bit unusual in the person in question was in an actual wheelchair. Scooters are ripe for abuse, but wheelchairs not so much. I'm thinking with those it is glaringly legit or glaringly fake.
Some people can stand and be mobile for short amounts of time. One trip one year my mom had knee surgery, had a scooter. Was able to occasionally get up to stretch - - - The judgement was ridiculous - - - Why can't people just mind their own.................let people live and be.
You don't know - - - you don't need to know - - - why do you care so much?????????????????????
