    "Someone Like You"…

    He said “”Just phone Care and Repair. Someone Like You can get it all for nuffin’ “.

    This was the man building my custom built mobility scooter store. Having left the “mobility threshold”
    four inches in the air so no scooter could use it he came back and assured me two ramps would
    solve the problem. Woogy was so right, it does not.

    The wooden ramp inside is plywood and splitting already. The concrete one is just turning into
    dust in just one week and degrading around the edges. Most importantly it is uneven
    and scrapes the scooter underside as you exit, angles all wrong.

    The man has had enough. He wants £ 300 to come back again and suggests I phone the care
    agency Care And Repair as he has presumably heard all the scrounger type disabled peeps
    can just ring up places and they get it all for free at the expense of the hard pressed tax payer.

    Am I right to find this demeaning and insulting?

    Someone Like You indeed.

    Re: “Someone Like You”…

    O.T.’s came yesterday and have declared it “not fit for for purpose”.

    Actually I did phone Care and Repair. They are doing this type of work every day. They
    are experts in this field. Of course they will not do it for “nuffin”. They will
    do a survey and safety examination on Thursday and give a fair price. Not
    Having anything else to do with the cowboys.

    Someone Like You…… Indeed?

    dude if the concrete or cement is just turning to dust. the bloke has used too much sand. they add too much sand to string the job out. as you discovered when he asked for another 300 quid.
    what is it with these people. why do they assume that because our arms and legs don’t work properly, neither does our brains. :nono:
    ps admin can we get some smilies that are insultive or swearing for these types of posts please :yes:

    Abso-bloomin-lootley … you have the right to be steaming from the ears, and flames from the nose, kinda like :Angry: that is a very insulting and rude thing to say. Is he a one-man-band op or does he work for a firm? Hopefully the care & repair can do a bit of both for you, this fallacy of getting stuff for nowt will take decades [if ever] to change [look how many people still refer to JSA as ‘Dole”]. I am disgusted for you.

    I would venture to suggest that if that phrase was said to someone of ethnic origin it would be considered a racial crime – wow I am mad!

    Contact watchdog, this would be right up their street!

    To answer your question.

    Not a one man band. This is an established local firm. Had my Windows from them
    years ago. This man just believes all the hype in the media that the disabled
    just get everything for free with no questions asked.

    Very happy to have Care and Repair coming to help. They are doing adaptations
    for mobility scooters every day of the week.
