Being single is my handicap

Handicapped accessible for single people

A few weeks ago, I went to see a friend perform in a play. I couldn’t find anyone to go with me to said play, only because Sweeney Todd is a depressing, hard-sell for a Saturday night.

However, I really wanted to go to support my friend, so I decided just to go it alone. I’m one of those people who’s never bothered by going to the movies alone or being alone in general, but once I found my seat, I suddenly felt like my singleness was being put on display.

This is where they placed me in the theater:

Handicapped accessible for single people
Handicapped accessible for single people

One-person row
The extra space is for my buckets of tears.

I just don’t understand why they didn’t put me in a row with other people. And I’m not quite sure who actually would sit in these seats, anyway. Usually, handicapped accessible seats come in pairs or multiples. Did I get the Lonely Guy’s special?

  1. These seats are designed for people who accompany wheelchair-bound people sitting in the open space next to the “single” chairs. It doesn seem a little insulting to seat you there.
