When you’re nickname comes up in real life situations (I go by the nickname “Four-wheels”)
I was at the gym the other day, waiting for Handydart (a paratransit door-to-door service for people with disabilities who cannot use the regular bus system) to pick me up after my workout and I was dead tired and not paying attention. The staff were in the middle of cleaning up for the night. One of them asked something along the lines of "Should I unplug the machine with four wheels on it?”
I was so dead tired and not paying attention, when I heard the words four wheels, I looked up for a good three seconds; thinking she was taking about me until it dawned on me that:
1) No one at the gym knows I go by the nickname Four-wheels
2) I was sitting in my wheelchair, not on any excersise equipment.
3) They were talking about an exercise machine. 😂
Thought I would share that little bit of humour for anyone who needs a laugh. 😂
