So, I have a quick story. I'm not telling it for sympathy...just want to vent and also I get frustrated that people are sometimes very insensitive. Also, I'd like to know if something similar has ever happened to anyone here (just curious).
I was working yesterday and there were a group of painters outside of the building. One man told me that I was walking pretty fast. Now, I use a cane but sometimes if I'm in a rush I do walk fast. Also, I was very hunched over. Well, when he thought I wasn't looking at him, he made fun of me the way I was walking to the other painters--he was imitating me...not for long but enough for me to catch it. So then, he walked to the door and
opened it for me and told me to hurry up because he wouldn't hold the door for me forever.
I work with children. I have had a few here and there call me a cripple and other names that upset me, but I talk to them and explain everything and try to help them to be more sensitive to others. I have never had an adult make fun of me. I went home and was very upset. I'm over it now though because I guess that there are just some people who aren't very nice.
That's all. Thanks for reading. Even though I don't post much, I'm still on (literally) every single day.
