I was talking to our city’s recreation director, and the issue of elevator keys came up (in order to use the elevator at one of the city pools, you have to get a staff member to operate it, using a key). She said that when the elevator was installed, the staff asked whether it wouldn’t be inconvenient for patrons to have to get the key, and the installer told them that the keys were universal, and most wheelchair users have their own.
Why do I miss out on all the good stuff? Ok, wheelchair people (in the US): do you have an elevator key? Was it handed out to you with your nifty Quickie wheelchair and your parking permit? Was there a secret handshake, too?
