Hi Willy, Betty! Did you just have an ice cream?

Yes Hank, we just had some. If you were here earlier I would have bought you one too.

Willy, why do the clerks keep asking me what you want?

They always are looking at me and ignoring you.

It's always like that Betty, they always talk to the care giver.

Sometimes it makes me want to say: "Talk to me, my eyes are down here!"

“Talk to me, my eyes are down here!”

I hope you enjoy these and I would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.

When many people come across a care giver with a person with a disability, they will talk to the care giver ignoring their client as if they weren’t there. Remember to address the disabled person and not the helper if you should be talking to their client.

This strip was published before as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name to “Wheel Tales of Willow City”.

We'll Make CentsWe’ll Make Cents” is an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a visit.

Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!
