Today, I had to try to explain to my stepsister that it's inappropriate to ask to borrow my mother's wheelchair to dress up 'like a cripple' on Halloween. When I told her my mother would need the chair on Halloween anyway, she suggested we just carry her around for the night. FML

If your stepsister wants to dress up as a disabled person, she ought to go as a reta..., no, wait... a mentally challenged individual. She already seems to have the necessary equipment.

As someone who is actually disabled and in a wheelchair, I just want to be treated like a normal everyday person. To think that people want to 'dress up' as a disabled person on Halloween, kinda makes me feel like a freak now. I can't even begin to imagine what you and your mother go through on a daily basis

There's no reason to think that way. Keep in mind, people dress up as mexicans, black people and chinese people.
It all falls under of:
Why is this still a thing? People dressing up as other people.
Most of the time it's racist or insensitive, like now for instance.

On the other hand, if she tried it for the evening without anyone helping her, it might be something of a learning experience. I eventually gave up my manual wheelchair as I was losing by upper body strength, and couldn't handle of my any mire.

Today, my 17-year-old son came home with a black eye saying he ran into a pole at school. I asked the principal if we could see the tapes. He actually did run straight into a pole. And not just once, twice. FML

Today, my 3 year old woke up at 2 am and refused to go back to sleep unless she could sleep with her father and me. Normally we would have said no, but both of us being so tired, we said yes. She slowly kicked me out of my side of the bed and now I have to sleep on the couch. FML
