Im a father of a child with Autism. i got him a PWD ID. when i tried to used it to buy my son some donuts at J.CO (SM fairview). The cashier told me "bale wala po yan pag di nyo bitbit yun bata" I told her im the father and thats my signature at the back of his ID. QC municipality told me I can use it on some items listed at the back like food for him(Donuts for my son) " Hindi po wala po yan, wala po kayong discount!

I paid for my son's Donuts in full..

mother of cerebral palsy patients will definitely have a harder time than me just to buy a piece of donut and have a discount.
