Great things about being blind. showing me to a chair.

This sounds simple. Some people make it more difficult than it needs to be. You are showing me to a chair in a room. do not lift me into it. Yes, this has happened. Do not place me in front of it and push down on my shoulders to get me to sit down. Yes this has also happened. Explain where the chair is in relation to me. My guide dog may find it if I ask her to do so. but, if you are guiding me to a chair, place my hand on its back or arm. Then I can deal with it. Pull it out, examine it to see the best way for me to get into it. Thank you for reading and for being so wonderful with comments.

  1. Wow. That second scenario has me thinking "Kim, sit! Good Kim!" I haven't been picked up, or pushed into a chair, in a long while. I've been grabbed, and physically spun around and pushed backwards towards the chair though. Ah the things people do.
