Sometimes, we do mess with you…for fun

March 25, 2006 at 1:52 PM (Assumptions, College) (, )

Contrary to popular belief everyone with a disability, or on disability or on other forms of assistance didn’t get that way to fleece the rest of you…..

But….

Just every once in a while, the able are so….well…. um…

Gullible.

It is my senior year at college and I have scored the biggest, comfiest dorm room in a bulding that had been a women’s dormitory for nearly it’s entire existance…since the 1870’s was close to 110 years old in 1983….High celings and two separate spaces within the room. large enough to require a roomate….Only hitch was, there was only one closet….and during the serious girl phase of one’s life one closet will not accommodate two women.

There were, some extra, portable stand alone closet units floating around campus at the time….

My future roomate, an able bodied person, asked my permission to play the disability card…and I granted it…She advised Student Life or Maintenance, or whomever in the hell that I needed some spare space to put my crutches….and voila!

Both her side and my side had a closet.

Was it truly needed? Probably not.

Did we think it was hilarious?

Absolutely.

    As the aforementioned roomate in question, it’s my opinion that they would have given us anything (up to and including a case of vodka, a gas grill, a dozen slinkys, and a ballpeen hammer) if you would have let me keep going with that schtick…but you were insufficiently evil at the time.

    Hilarious. The doofus in charge of Student Life at my current college is also a genial and easily duped fellow, so it might just be a characteristic of the breed.

    Hmmm.
