Disabled Changing Room

I went shopping for a pair of jeans last Sunday. Jean & I went to Mahon Point SC where parking is easy and access is great. I found a pair of jeans in Debenhams that looked as if they would fit so I rolled off to the changing rooms in the MEN’S Section. So far, so good. The first cubicle has a wheelchair symbol at the doorway and is fully equipped for disabled people. I pulled back the curtain only to be met a cry of shock and horror, a lady and her daughter were inside. None of the other cubicles were occupied and we were in the men’s section. I have become immune to people misusing designated disabled parking spaces, the misuse of disabled toilet facilities is not unusual (if nature calls she must be answered) but this is the first time I have come across misuse of a disabled changing room. I was more than surprised when I realised how much trouble the 2 had gone to. The clothes could only have been selected on the ground floor, carried up to the first floor and brought through the men’s department before selecting the disabled changing room. The mother must really like the extra space in the disable area and possibly the masculine feel in the men’s changing rooms. Anyway I hope they learned a lesson on the meaning of the wheelchair decal.

It is not Debenhams fault that some people are totally inconsiderate and I must congratulate them on the changing room – it was very spacious and properly equipped.
