With shaking hands, a disabled woman from Wirral, UK, who usually gets food delivered to her home, plucked up the courage to leave the house and go to the store. Sadly, this was met with spiteful mockery.

A clip was shared on Twitter of Dianna Slade in tears while she recollected her highly troubling experience with the staff at a Home Bargains.

Slade suffers from FND (Functional Neurological Disorder), which leads to many debilitating symptoms. The 37-year-old alleged that the staff chose a crueler path instead of assisting her when her disability became apparent.

Slade affirmed that while trying to pick up some heavy rubber car mats to buy, she unintentionally dropped it on one of the workers. She claimed that this staff member was not hurt at all.

However, even though the worker was not injured and Slade made it clear that she was incredibly sorry, the staff member stared at her with animosity, she purported.

Slade claimed that while all this was occurring, she was clearly struggling with her walking stick and shaking hands while she feebly attempted to lift the mats.

She sadly recalled that three staff members just stood there and looked at her while she battled, and after she managed to pick up the mats and walk away, the 37-year-old overhead them giggling at her expense. Slade expressed

"There's just no need to be so mean." 

She claimed that she also heard one of them making a joke about her. They bantered that it was much too early in the day to be drinking.

The UK resident thinks that staff should be educated with concern to the hidden disabilities sunflower. She wears this as a lanyard with a sign to indicate her disability. 

A security guard claimed that the young boy may cause harm to others and himself.

This demonstrates that the person may need extra help with whatever activities they may be engaging in. Home Bargains has reportedly chosen not to make a statement concerning the issue.

Unfortunately, harsh treatment towards disabled individuals is not unique to Slade, where even those from a young age can begin to feel the fury of discrimination. A 10-year-old  boy experienced this first hand. 

Jordan Block's family claimed that he was kicked out of a fountain because of his disability. They had traveled to Chicago from Warrenville, where they were looking forward to enjoying themselves at the Crown Fountain.

A security guard claimed that the young boy might cause harm to others and himself due to his electric wheelchair. However, he did not let this stop him, and just like Slade chose to visit the store, Block enjoyed himself at the Fountain, despite the ignorance.
