I am a truck driver... the poor guy was just trying to do his job and unload the product! How would you like to drive one of those trucks AND unload a 53 foot trailer by hand?!!!!!! Life simply is tough and inconvienent at times and we all have to deal with it EVEN if one has a handicap. So what, you had to eat across the street this time. Big deal. With out that delivery you would never be eating at McDonald's. Can't we all just get along as human beings? At times we all inconveince one another to accomplish things that must be done. BELIEVE me, my life has minor irritations in it as well...I am a very cute woman truck driver AND have always worked in the blue collar trades. Sure crap happens to me working with a bunch of men and the reactions of people where I go are not always positive BUT unlike you I don't whine about it and scream out "I have a right to have an easier life than every other human on the planet because I am handicaped or in my case a woman." I simply, do what I have to and accomplish my goal.
Oh, and try a day driving an 18 wheeler before you judge where they should unload...It is a VERY difficult job, yet one that EVERYONE depends on, even you... Try a little tolerance...After all, you expect tolerance on your part. What's good for you is good for all humans.
Remember, they were NOT discriminating against you. they were only accepting a delivery which is unloaded by hand.
