Two of my grandparents had parkinson's, it's super weird that she would treat u that way. It's just the kind of person she was, u didn't do anything wrong. I would say not to worry about it cuz honestly there was no way for you to know. She probably just wanted something free.
32, throwing insults around for no apparent reason (rather... to make yourself feel better) isn't attractive. I'm making a comment to the idiot up there ^^. Look how many others do it, and guess what? You aren't calling them moody cows. Someone's got something against me? Good. I'll deal. Thank you, 39.
OP, you should have started cursing like crazy and just screamed random curses, like "FUCK ASS BITCH MOTHERFUCKER" and then claimed you have Tourettes. And then apologize to the old lady and tell her that some of the things you say are involuntary. Or, you could just roundhouse kick her in the face. That always works for me.
the thought occurred to me that I find this hard to believe... if she was advanced enough in her disease to tick that way, she'd have had it a while. I would assume someone simply asking "what are you disagreeing with?" wouldn't cause her to tear up, especially because realistically she has probably dealt with many more dickheaded responses and situations. unfortunately people with parkinsons have to deal with a lot of ignorance induced staring and questions, and (sadly) insults. so, OP, did you really act as inoffensive as you claim... or is this bullshit?
Quit bashing people without an avatar. I use FML to comment and read. Therefor I don't care that people don't know what I look like or like, regarding my avatar. I can't be bothered to choose an avatar and upload it when it's giving out info I don't even want to share. Other than that, nice arguement. And regarding this FML, don't want to write another comment for it to tell me I have to wait 60 seconds.. I'm pretty ignorant with this diease, but I thought it just caused shaking.. OP writes that they were saying 'No' too. So that's kind of confusing... but correct me if I'm wrong. Anyway OP, always be polite and stuff...
112 - shut up and learn what tourettes really is before you go and make assumptions. I have tourettes and that does NOT happen. it's usually small movements like shaking you hand or blinking a lot. Tourettes effects your speech only in the worst and serious cases. OP - the lady shouldn't have expected you to know she had parkinsons
115: It doesn't matter how long you've been ill or how often others comment on it; some days are just a lot more difficult than others when you're not "normal." She could've simply been more emotional that day, and didn't have the energy to fight back the tears. I've been there. 133: OP just thought the lady was disagreeing because her head was shaking; she never actually said "no" to anything. That was the problem.
I wasn't arguing that all days are the same. i know it matters when you're exposed to a lot more of these situations over time and as a result become more experienced in handling them. it's a popular topic in group therapy. ive never seen any of my patients react this way over something so trivial and unintentional, regardless of how their day was going. even when some jackass purposely said something terribly offensive, they usually handled it with grace and ignored the douche until an appropriate forum to discuss the incident presented itself (like a support group, therapy, dr appointment). regardless of all the maybes, my only point is that i have a hard time believing the op was as calm and/or polite as stated to gauge a reaction like that.
it depends on the person and stage of the disease. I've worked with people with parkinsons, and the presence and extent of symptoms and tremors is often different from person to person. some of my patients had severe tremors and some had none. it's a progressive disease though, as time goes on you lose more control
Ouch, sucks fo' you. My great-grandma had that terrible, but it never caused her to shake her head that way. Oh well, you didn't know! I understand her being a bit hurt for the misunderstanding, but no need in talking to the manager about that.
Well, you didn't know. And if her head is shaking like that because of her disease, then she should be prepared for questions like you asked. She's dumb, FYL, OP.
No, just emotional from her suffering. Sometimes people with ailments take offense, that's why I try to be aware of every situation as to not offend anyone. If someone like me who has experienced uncontrollable shaking and seen someone with it, I know its a issue going on they can't help. Why call her dumb for being emotional, it was just a misunderstanding.
