Nice comment... but damn OP, you're an asshole. Get to know him. People who have down syndrome are some of the funniest people alive. What in the world is your problem? Unless you're bitching about the fact that the down syndrome child's (on an iPod, don't remember the gender) parents think you're boring? Waaaaa waaa waaa, cry some more, maybe your mom will come in and breastfeed you again, burp you, and put you down for a nap. Quit complaining about being called boring, and DO something about it, make yourself exciting. Go do extreme sports. Make yourself an adrenaline junkie.

Haha sorry prime, I understand. I just get easily aggravated over inconsiderate people so I do go overboard a lot and say stuff that isn't even related to the subject, sorry :p

81- hmmm... I always thought people called them that bacause they are RETARDED MENTALLY, but now that you say it, I see it obviously must have some horrible underlying context heavily insulting all who are mentally impaired.

actually 114 retard means "to slow" and can be used in other terms regarding physical capabilities as well, depending on where 101 is from "retarded mentally" may be the correct term.

@114 - retard isn't a racial slur. Just sayin... And OP, grow up. Waaah, the mentally handicapped boy is staring and taking pictures cuz he thinks you're pretty. He has downs. Get over yourself. Why would you seriously think this is an fml? Yfdi for being a bigot

I'm pretty sure OP would feel uncomfortable if it was ANY guy doing that! I know this down syndrome kid who is sweet, but a little pervert too. he's always trying to grab girls asses, and he tells girls he can have as Manu girls as he wants (he thinks they're all his gf) but they can only be with him. he may be retarded, but that's no excuse to be a perv and take pics, the parents can teach him not to

your an asshole just cause someones mentally handicapped does not make them funny or retarded. you should look up down syndrome not all who have it are mentally retarded. there are different severities of it some are just alittle slow and others are severly disabled. You and op are both fucking morons and should research stuff before you post

66- Down Syndrome is caused by an extra of all or part of the 21st chromosome, no a missing one. The effects and severity vary greatly among people, depending on genetic history, how much of the extra chromosome there is, and pure luck. OP, unless that kid is affecting your work or doing inappropriate things, just smile and go about your day. If it makes you feel legitimately uncomfortable or keeps your from doing your job, talk to the parents and explain that to them. If they're reasonable people, they'll respect your wishes. If that doesn't work, try going to your boss, perhaps?

really this lady is a complete bitch! the kid has a disorder and she is acting like this is offensive? f*** you, not your life. this is insensitive, ESPECIALLY for a teacher.

if a stranger was coming to your job and staring at you for several hours a day, whether they had a chromosomal disorder or not you would probably be frustrated and creeped out after awhile. and the OP has a right to feel comfortable in her work place.

i find no problem. ppl that r down can be some of the sweetest ppl. n if he takein pix it means he might lik u so talk to his parents n talk to him if it makes u nervous.

8, 19, and 79 - it doesn't matter if he's sweet. if he's making her uncomfortable at her place of employment it needs to stop. if he's not there for a business transaction he's loitering at any rate.

Countrygirl, he was with his parents, how was he "loitering" O_o

Reply
  darkmis1  |  17

Because he isn't buying anything and is making her uncomfortable. The fact that his parents are there mean nothing - just that they need to do something, but refuse to.

Reply

It has apparently happened many times, if they aren't there for a transaction of business it is technically loitering. And if his parents are there only to allow their child to stare at the woman, they are loitering as well. Loitering can be charged to adolescents and adults.

79- I think both Down Syndrome and Down's Syndrome are acceptable, but Down's is used primarily in the UK. You could also just avoid the confusion by getting all fancy and calling it trisomy 21 =P.

Wow. You're obviously only thinking about yourself here. I wish you could trade bodies and see how he feels.

I'm not sure she's really being bitchy. She didn't act negatively towards him at all (yet, anyway) It's totally understandable that she's uncomfortable. That said, I'm not sure which to pick either, I think it might be moot.

i beleve op just feel it is very uncomfertable to e taken pictures of by a stranger at work. it is kinda respectless of the parents, not even asking if it is ok. i would feel the same unless they actually asked first.

I really don't know if I should say that you deserve it or not , because you're just being a bitch. he's not doing anything bad or something .

if it were a person with a fully functioning brain taking pictures of her and following her around, they would get a restraining order and she would be congratulated for being brave and facing a dangerous person.

if you are mentally handicapped you should be aware of how offensive the word retarded is. furthermore I don't understand how you being mentally challenged makes this situation "okay" for this person, could you explain that, please?

hey, I appreciate your advocacy, but I think retarded is a perfectly fine word if it's intent is to not be offensive. In the past, retarded was the accepted vernacular while moron was the offensive term. Now retarded is the offensive term and mentally handicapped is correct. in a decade, mentally handicapped will be offensive and there will be a new word. this happens all the time. for example, Nigger>Negro>black>African american>???

Reply

58, you have a good point, but since the word retarded, in this point in time, is offensive and hurts people's feelings, it just seems best to use a more politically correct term such as mentally handicapped.

Excuse me, I'm really sorry my friend was on my account just now and she was upset because her sister is mentally handicapped. I agree with your reasoning and apologize for her rash-ness(if that's a word). lol

im sorry If I made it seem like I thought using the word Nigger is ok. my point is that in the past it was acceptable, then Negro was acceptable, then black was acceptable, and now African American is acceptable. the "politically correct" term today will be the offensive one in a generation or two. people should stop taking offense to someone's word choice, and start taking offense to their intentions.
