WOMAN TOLD SHE HAS NO RIGHTS TO USE HANDICAP TOILET AS SHE’S NOT HANDICAPPED

A reader shared about a woman who was accused of having no rights to use the handicap toilet. She went into the handicap toilet as she was pushing a stroller and could not get into the normal cubicle. A cleaner and supervisor at CompassOne then approached the toilet and started knocking to check if there was anyone inside. The woman said they could not hear her answer as they were talking loudly among themselves. They soon opened the door, leaving her exposed without her pants. She complained to the management but received a letter telling her she has no rights to use the handicap toilet as she is not handicapped. She has since reported this to the police.

NOBODY WANTED TO PICK UP DISABLED PASSENGER, SO KIND TAXI UNCLE DID IT FOR FREE

A kind taxi uncle came across this disabled passenger after he had finished his lunch. He helped the man board his taxi and was on his way to the destination when the passenger told him that he had been waiting for more than 1 hour for willing taxi drivers to pick him up, but to no avail. Saddened by the man's story, he decided to give the man a free ride as a kind gesture to brighten his day.

3 POLICEMEN SURROUND HANDICAP TISSUE SELLER, WHY SO HARSH & DENY A SIMPLE LIVING?

I would like to highlight to you this incident where I saw a few police officers were surrounding this handicapped auntie and a younger girl who might possibly be mentally challenged making a living selling tissues. Why does the police still need to be so harsh by even attempting to deny them of this one and only channel to earn a living? I feel that the police should take a step back when it comes to this.

PARKING CIBAI ILLEGAL PARK IN DISABLED PARKING, HANDICAP DRIVER STRUGGLES

About an hour and a half ago, outside Yishun Central SingPost. Not only did the driver of SJT5426Z parked in reserved lots for handicap drivers, he must occupy TWO handicap parking lots! The car behind him came as I was taking photos, driven by a handicap driver with a Blue label. It hurts me to watch the handicap driver struggle to park into the remaining half a lot, turning the steering wheel over and over, bending his body, twisting his head in discomfort while he tries to park in a lot he has the privilege to park in.

SEC SCHOOL BOY DONATED ALL HIS POCKET MONEY TO HANDICAP TISSUE SELLER AT MRT

While heading to school today, I saw a lower secondary school boy counting his coins near an escalator of a MRT station. He looked worried so I wanted to approach him and ask if he needed money to head home. While I was inching towards him, he moved in the direction of this handicapped lady on a wheelchair, selling tissues. I stopped next to him, thinking that he may be asking the lady for a few more cents since there was no one else around.

WHY DOES TRANSCOM & SMRT STAFF HAVE TO “FINE” HANDICAPPED TISSUE SELLERS?

I took the photo showing the Transcom police & SMRT staffs issuing fine to the elderly wheelchair-bound for selling tissues. I understand that selling tissues in public places need a license from NEA but they're too old to even know about all these. They're already handicapped and how could the transcom expect them to travel all the way to apply for a license. Not as if they commit any serious crime or doing any illegal things here.
