This story is absolutely wild, and a great reminder that some people are very, very dumb.
A 22-year-old woman was on her first public transportation trip with Rowley, her assistance dog, when a random lady lost her mind and started yelling. ("The two-year-old pup will help Megan retrieve dropped items, empty the washing machine, get undressed and untie her shoes and even phone for help, when she loses consciousness.") Megan suffered a serious head injury as a teenager and sometimes loses consciousness and can experience episodic blindness, so you can imagine why an assistance dog is important to her.
The 22-year-old ... claims the woman shouted "why is there a f****** dog on the bus? Get it off".
However when Megan tried to "politely explain" it was an assistance dog she claims the woman called her a liar because "guide dogs are yellow Labradors and your dog is black".
Megan, from St Helens, said: "I tried to explain to her that guide and assistance dogs can been any colour and don't have to be Labradors, although Rowley is. She told me I was wrong. ️
"I decided at this point there was nothing I could say to educate this woman and that it wasn't worth my time.
"I instead chose to ignore her while she continued to talk nonsense."
It's not the first time something like this has happened. Megan said, "I don't think I've ever had a stress free trip on public transport, that's why I'm so nervous when using it now."
