Don Talley said he just wants to be treated like any other customer.
The 62-year-old Modestan suffered a stroke in 1993 and relies on a motorized wheelchair to get around.
He is frustrated because the folks at McDonald's and Jack in the Box restaurants, both on Oakdale Road, won't let him use his chair in their drive-through lanes.
"They don't want me to get hurt," he said. "But I don't understand. It says 'drive-thru.' All I want to do is drive through. I'm just like everybody else."
In that respect, he is being treated like every other customer -- every other one who tries to negotiate anything other than a car, pickup or motorcycle through.
