This is true. A blind woman with a guide dog made her way up a ramp to the YMCA. A man was sitting on a wall blocking a good part of the ramp. He yelled at her, “Damn woman, what the hell, why you steppin’ on my goddamn feet?”
Because she is blind you imbecile! I was stunned silent.
Perhaps the lesson here is this. Next time one of us gets irate, perhaps it’s because we have no idea what’s happening. Especially when we think we do.
When we yell about something, it’s usually about something else.
One thought on “Thing I saw today, Dec 4th, 2015.”
I am yelling about the violence in our communities and the availability of guns and that really is what I am yelling about. Really. AND I am calling senators and representatives and I am writing letters and still nothing appears to change. What do I do now, Zamboni, to make it impossible for crazy angry people to get guns? Shouldn’t it be at least as hard to get a gun as it is to get, just say, for example, an abortion?
