Paperback edition of ‘I’m Only In It For The Parking’ out now

LVG paperback bookI'm delighted to announce that the paperback edition of my first book, 'I'm Only In It For The Parking' is available to buy in all good bookshops now. It's also available on Amazon.

You can buy personalised signed copies of the hardback edition of 'I'm Only In It For The Parking' on my website too.

What’s the worst thing about being disabled? Is it the shameless staring? Is it that people assume you’re a bit thick because you can’t speak? Or is it the fact that your friends always take you to theme parks just so they can jump the queues?

In fact, it’s the stupid questions that really rile Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy. And over the years he’s been inundated with them, from people who have failed to engage their brains before opening their mouths. Which is where I’m Only In It for the Parking comes in – think of it as a disabled FAQ, with funny (sometimes painfully funny) stories from Lee’s less-ordinary life.

If you think you know what it’s like to be disabled, prepare to have your perceptions skewered by the much-loved Britain’s Got Talent winner, the brilliant stand-up who struggles to stand up, the Geordie without the accent. And before you ask … no, he really can’t speak at all. But he definitely has something to say.

Think of it as a disabled FAQ. I’ve been asked countless stupid questions about my disability over the years, from ‘What’s it like to be disabled?’ to ‘Can you really not speak?’ In this book, I will use the best of these questions as a jumping off point to tell funny stories about my less than ordinary life.

I hope you enjoy reading it!

Hahahaha 😂😂😂 I’m laughing so much at this. Siri, please turn off parental controls. Lol

Now I'm imagining mixing the voices up a bit 😀

Don’t be cheating on Alexa… she’s listening on you every word 😂

It could be worse, it could be like sleeping with Alexa 🤣

In the distant days when I was married, I once made my husband get up for a shave. He’d been away for a couple of weeks and come back with a beard. I suddenly felt like I was sleeping with Kenny Rogers

I wouldn't mind it that much, to be honest. There are times when a robotic voice can be hot. My problem would be if my boyfriend chose to let go of me to reach for a device to say something that would turn me off during cuddling. Seems like a waste of time to me, especially since he can already talk without one...

At least you can change your accent if your partner doesn't like it 😅🤣 X

I'm loving the geordie accent. Full of admiration for all that you have achieved so far. Onwards and upwards young sir. P.s Don't you miss the posh accent?! 🙂

You've just reminded me of the pilot episode of 'Long Black' with Bush Tucker Bunjie (youtube) where the characters declare that representation in porn is important in equality

I’ve got Siri set to an Aussie woman so sweet talk away 😀

This bloke is just absolute gold what a national treasure he is

Love it, you've made me laugh on a down day, Thankyou, xx

Rubbish, 8 at best

Hold on… you have a Jordy accent now don’t you?

Is this really you I'm such a fan? I'm Sue in a powerchair ❤️

Don't judge me! 😳

I wonder if there's a sexy or sultry voice on the machine....

You crack me up! 🤣🤣

Love it.

“Dave… I’m afraid I can’t let you do that, Dave…” “Daisy, daisy…”

Brilliant

You are too good buddy 😀😀

Good one hahaha love it

Which Siri?

I’m speechless 😭
