Are you guys retarded?! He just made some random funny banter. He got "unlucky" that he did it about a handicapped person. He obviously didn't know she was handicapped, and he's properly very sorry as well. would you freaking chill out! Look more closely before you go kill the person with a "twatknife"
i dont understand how you knew there was a lady in there unless you have seen her before she entered the restroom. Either way its messed up
That's my point, if he was waiting for her near the women's line it would have been obvious, and I doubt if she was taking so long the men's line wouldn't have moved or anything, and she wouldn't be complaining to someone in a totally different line. It seems far more logical to me that it was a unisex restroom.
One of my teachers had a story similar to this today. Apparently he complained to his wife about another woman's voice being annoying, but it turned out that the other woman had had a stroke. Moral of the story and this FML? Don't just start making comments and jokes. Don't assume. Be patient and understanding with people. There's probably more going on then you think.
If he didn't find the jokes funny, why would you keep making the jokes?
I'm disabled - I use crutches or a wheelchair, depending how much I have to walk - and people are SUPER assholes about leaving stuff meant for disabled people alone. I was brought up being told that you don't use the handicapped stall unless it's the only one open/clean, and you ALWAYS leave it clean if you have to use it. I became disabled late last year, I have a handicapped placard for the car and you wouldn't BELIEVE the number of people who park in those spaces without placards. When I'm using a public washroom, I *need* the extra space to maneuver with my crutches or wheelchair, and the grab bars to help me get up or down. Yet every public washroom I've been in (unless it's a single toilet), there's been someone in the handicapped stall though every single other stall is open, and I've even had someone bang on the door yelling at me to hurry up because she claimed her (perfectly healthy) kids needed to use that stall... Even though the rest were open. My local movie theatre has two handicapped bathroom stalls in two different washrooms - when I went to see Skyfall, one of them was out of order (whenever I go to this theatre there is someone in that stall even if the bathroom is empty), and the one I trekked to all the way upstairs was disgusting and blocked. I called a manager. What did they do? Put an 'out of order' sign on the door. THANKS THAT HELPS. I managed to use a regular stall (thankfully it was a crutches day), but it took ten times as long as usual because I had to maneuver myself up and down with the crutches instead of grab bars. The OP totally deserved it. Rent a wheelchair at a mall sometime, and try transferring onto a toilet without using your legs. It is NOT easy and it takes time, and I've seen a ton of handicapped washrooms that have things in the way so people can't transfer (trash bins, not enough space between the wall and the toilet for the wheelchair). My local mall is like that - since I can't bring my partner (who is my usual caretaker) into the ladies' room with me, I've had him help me in the larger, single 'family' washroom - only to be scolded by people with children because 'there's a special bathroom stall for you'. The OP made some ignorant comments. My partner probably would have said something, but there is something to be said about having someone realize they're being a total dick on their own.
