A case of rules is rules?
A Manchester, UK man, who had both legs amputated and was using a wheelchair, was asked by a bus driver to in effect prove his disability by producing a pass for free travel. He had the pass, but feels he was humiliated by the process. One interesting twist -- the man was a former bus driver himself. He told the BBC he never asked obviously disabled people to produce a pass. One could argue that the driver is supposed to see a pass or collect a fare; he was just doing his job in that sense, following the rules. On the other hand -- man in wheelchair, double amputee. Get the message Mr. Bus Driver? What do you think, should the driver have grasped the obvious and shut up, or should the passenger have just showed his pass like everyone else must do? Weigh in with a comment. (Bus photo -- not necessarily from Manchester -- by Kenn Kiser via morgueFile.com)
