Assumptions

Posted on Sat, Dec 31, 2011 at 8:23 AM



To the old fart who aggressively accosted me about my "handicap", following
me thru Costco on Division, trying to intimidate me with threats of writing
me a ticket or reporting me for parking in the handicapped space: you did
not notice my 3 month temporary disabled placard on the car and assumed I
was abusing the privilege. Do you feel better now? My doctor requested I
not walk before my upcoming knee replacement surgery to prevent a complete
dislocation or amputation. I am fit, healthy, not overweight, and I
exercise regularly including yoga and bicycling. But - close to surgery
with a history of dislocation, I need to protect it. Do I really need to
justify myself and my health to your angry judgmental nature? Would you
feel better if I gained 300lbs so you could justify giving me a permit?
Apparently! Look in the mirror you jerk before you make assumptions about
others.
