There are numerous examples of disabilities that aren't necessarily visible to the public eye and those people have been called out for using a handicap parking space or disabled bathroom. It's unfortunate and frustrating, but it happens.
Historically, people have a way of equating disabilities with obvious visual cues.
It's understandable, but that doesn't mean it's correct to use those assumptions solely.There's a lot that can go on in a body that doesn't manifest itself visually.
So people tend to ask questions like this.Well, there's a really good reason for that. Placards and plates designate handicap status on cars, but people in public areas don't feel the need (thankfully) to hang one around their neck to let the world know.
Fortunately, one outlet made a change to let the world know that they shouldn't fly off the handle when they see a "normal" person using a handicap restroom.
Of course, there's some unintended collateral damage to this decision, but we'll get to that shortly.Here's what the crafty company did to help ease the burden of disabled customers.
That's why ASDA, a supermarket chain in the United Kingdom owned by Walmart, made a change to the signs on their bathrooms, reminding the public that invisible disabilities do exist.
