Unaware ableist

Today, I sat outside for a half hour hysterically laughing at this kid next door for constantly mooing like a cow. My mum came out to inform me the kid is severely disabled. I even mooed back at one stage. FML

well... if you simply thought the kid was being... well a kid and making sounds out of boredom i would say this is an embarrassing mistake. and who knows maybe the kid found it funny, in which case no harm no foul. and now you know to be a bit more careful in the future of how you respond, incase it isn't just the kid entertaining themself. intent is important here, I doubt you meant to outright mock them.

If the kid had fun and you had fun, so what if he's disabled? I have worked with a lot of disabled folks (including family members) and they absolutely love it when you do silly things with them. They feel validated when they are included.

Maybe you ought to try milking the kid.

The most logical explanation for the constant mooing is that the so-called kid is actually a cow.

I'll bet your family could sure use the milk and butter and cheese.
