Jasper and I were headed home from lunch with my parents (Bob and Roo drove separately) when I saw a guy flip over in his wheelchair and land, face-first, on the sidewalk. I pulled over to see if I could help him and was trying to get the crazy heavy wheelchair turned around when two preteen boys came running over to help. They obviously were more familiar with wheelchairs than I am because they started fiddling with the joystick thingie instead of trying to move the thing by hand. (They don't give you motorized wheelchairs for maternity discharge, duh…) And once we had the chair turned around better, another young man came out of nowhere to help lift the guy back into his chair. I offered to get some bandaids out of the car for the scrapes on his arms, but he said he was used to it and would be fine. And all of us went on our way.
