Simple Words

Smart Ass Cripple explains his "pit crew":
"Those are the people I hire to drag my ass out of bed every day, make my meals, do my laundry, scrub my toilet, wipe my butt, etc."
Best way EVER to explain the role of Home Care Aides / Personal Assistants in the lives of people with disabilities. It's pretty simple, yet for some reason, when I worked at an Independent Living Center, it was one of the hardest things to explain to people unfamiliar with disability issues. I wish I'd known about Smart Ass Cripple then, because "Pit Crew" would have saved a lot of time and awkward groping for words.
