An Armless Mistake

Armless man fined for not wearing a sealtbeltOh for crying out loud, some cop gave a driver with no arms a fine for not wearing a seat belt. Of course he had an exemption but the cop told him ‘I treat everybody the same, and you people expect things different,’ . Ouch. Anywho the driver went to court and had his fine dismissed.

Sorry No Can Do!



Awkward. Before Steve Valdez  could cash a check written out to him by his wife, the Bank of America required a thumbprint. That would have been OK if he had any hands! Born with no arms, Mr Valdez was unable to comply with bank policy, despite producing a driver’s license and two forms of ID (with photos). Hmm, seems if you don’t have an account (or hands) you can’t cash a check. But to be fair the bank manager gave Mr Valdez two options, either drag his wife down to the Tampa branch or open up an account! Obviously Bank of America have never heard of the American with Disabilities Act. Have a nice day!

Psst I wonder if a toe print would have sufficed?
