Asshat? Shitehawk? What kind of ridiculous expressions do you Americans use these days? Those are two of the most stupid names I have ever heard in my life!
Nice assumption there, 12, always good to throw a little un-needed prejudice in the mix. This is another example of bullshit on the moderators part for an FML. This is obviously the OP's fault and just because he's acting like a victim it's posted on here. Seriously, is this FML or is this the "YDI site"?
Haha can you imagine having an asshat? Does anyone else find the possibility of wearing a butt shaped hat fuckin hilarious because I think it would be quite possibly the funniest thing ever. "Hey, what's that you're wearing?!" "Oh this? It's my new asshat. Yeah, just picked it up yesterday from the ass store." Bahahaha
Hah. Shitehawk. Anyway, why are people solving things by being impulsively aggressive, nowadays? Geez.
I hate ignorant people who be smartasses and then realise they're jackasses.
I'm sorry, but people like this piss me of, you can't just assume someone isn't handicapped . Get things straight before you say stupid things, because I'm sure handicapped people feel shit enough with out people making there life even worse.
And not every handicapped person actually looks sick. Some people may look perfectly fine but the medical issues they have justifies them using a disabled parking space. Don't judge on what you THINK you see OP because you never know what someone is experiencing, even if it was obvious in this case.
My friend looks completely normal but has been losing bone mass for the past ten years. She is going to die a painful death from it. Someone gave her shit the other day because, "You're so pretty and skinny, how could you know what it's like to have a painful life!? What the hell do pretty people know about the suffering of others." I nearly slapped that bitch. It was over my friend telling the woman she could not have the motorized wheelchair she was using at the store. I was like, um hello, my friend can barely walk!
Same is true for myself. I'm handicapped, but you'd never know by just looking at me. I totally understand why I get the strange looks when I park in a handicapped space, but until the day comes where I can transfer my ailments to another human being, people are left to judge me and assume that they know what I go through on a daily basis... When you have a life altering ailment you don't pout and moan- you stay strong and live life, because you refuse to let the disease/disorder win.
Same with my stepmom. I bitched out a lady at Disney World once because my stepmom was on an electric scooter since her back is totally destroyed, and the lady was bitching about lazy people who use the scooters to cut in line for rides. My stepmom looks totally normal, but her back is so screwed up she can't lay down flat or her legs go numb so she sleeps in a recliner. And when I say sleeps, I mean broken dozing off maybe getting 3 hours max a night. Her life is shit but people just think since she looks normal there's nothing wrong.
I have a disability that means I cant walk without pain and extensive periods of walking are impossible for me even though I don't look any different! Whenever my parents park in a disabled spot everybody just stares at you and expects you to crawl out of the car! I even once had an elderly woman shout at me on a bus for being "a selfish little bitch" for not giving her a seat, I had to explain in front of a bus full of people that I'm not lazy and my knees dislocate when I stand up for more than 10 minutes! I really hate people that just judge you before they know you!
Very true! I'm disabled and in a wheelchair and one time when My 3year old son was having his 14th life saving surgery at the Children's Hospital my husband went downstairs to get my bag, because we'd be there for a week, when he was stopped These people questioned why he was in the handicapped parking spot. He politely said my wife is in a wheelchair upstairs with my son. Just then my sister in law went downstairs to help him. They looked at him, called him a liar then just stated at him You don't know what's going on or what people are going thru so don't assume anything.
195- true, its not the same as the other people on here who have real disabilities, yet some "asshats" see fit to question theyre right to disability benefits. Im not arguing that my point is the same because its really not. The point i was trying to make is theres a right way about questioning someone about it. For example. In my case it was not polite for the lady to come up to the window and ask if i was "fucking deaf".
198, That is also true, however in 99.9% of cases it would simply be a case of immature idiots with their radios blaring because they think it's cool. She was just unlucky enough to be confronted with someone who actually had hearing problems. As there is really no way for her to know - unlike in a disabled car park - it was a case of foot in mouth that really wouldn't be an issue in all other situations.
hopefully you didn't use the cussing vocabulary you used to write this fml
