Great things about being blind. Hepful construction workers.

Once we get rid of the snow here, we get into construction season.
Yes, just when you think it would be wonderful to go for a nice long walk on ice free sidewalks, the construction crews are out.
Sometimes I think they follow me around and end up where I end up.
Not fun except that I find the construction workers here are extremely helpful and good at passing on directions to me.
They must have had some disability awareness training.
But, maybe they haven't and just have good description skills from doing construction work.  After all, you would not want to tell someone to move slightly to their left on a roof when you meant right would you?
I've met some very nice and helpful people in my travels thus far during this construction season.  Thank you to them for giving good directions, shutting off equipment as I walk by, offering a guiding arm at times, and just being nice and respectful.
