  • Such people are absolutely disgusting and beyond ignorant. They should be ashamed of themselves and their stupidity. I like to believe what goes around comes around and one day I hope that they'll be on the opposite end of the ugly things they said to you. Don't even let them occupy a space in your mind.
  • I'm sorry that happened to you. :( I don't why some people are such aholes because it's something that I can't imagine doing. Perhaps they have the mean drunk syndrome. Hopefully they'll have a drunk driving accident with a lamp post someday where they'll be the only ones that get injured. Where did you encounter those jerks?
  • He was drunk and stupid. It had nothing to do with you. He would have found some ignorant thing to say about anyone who happened to be standing there.
  • I am so sorry you had to go through that particular experience...you can thank his parents for not teaching him any better, and his friends' parents as well. As a matter of fact, if possible, I would send his mother a sympathy flower arrangement and on the card say that I was so sorry to learn that her son was socially incompetent and extremely rude, would include a contact phone number and let her know exactly how her son behaved...then let him explain himself.
  • I know exactly where you are coming from - I am a bit overweight and have been treated to similar rudeness in a public place before. Some people are just ignorant and socially inept - they see someone a little different from the sterotypical norm and they think it is funny to "have a go". AS difficult as it may seem - let it go, ignore it and move on - lowlife like that aren't wasting time and emotion over.
  • Do NOT take that garbage personally, it's not as much a comment about you as it is a complete testiment to HIM! If his life is so meaningless and empty that he has to behave like that to other people, then you should pity him (some might say even pray for him) and hope that he someday finds meaning to his shallow and empty life, bereft of cooth or dignity or value of any kind. You are the true champion in that exchange, living your life, and not letting anything stop you!! THAT is noteworthy and probably the most noble of all actions. Let it roll off your back, consider the source, and know that you are good and kind; it is all that matters in life. You can tell the quality of any individual by the level of what bugs them, and how they treat other people. I have always said, we spend ALOT of time in our own mind, we should make it a nice place to be :-) Apparently, he has not done this, and lives only at the expense of others; in the animal kingdom these are known as sucker fish, bottom dwellers, vultures, etc. Nothing at all that should even be considered in your league!! Chin up and forget that loser!!
  • The person who did this to you should be ashamed of himself; and his friends as well. Some people pick on people whom they perceive to be weaker than themselves. They are bullies and cowards. They are not worth the paper they are written on. Just forget this horrible person. People like him are seriously dysfunctional and ignorant. If you come across anyone like this again, just hold your head up and ignore them. They are just rubbish. By the way, welcome to Answerbag. You will find lots of lovely people on here. Salaam.
  • People that put down others have low self esteem. They gain pleasure by putting down others as it makes them feel momentarily 'superior'. It quickly backfires on them however as inside their natural guilt reminds them of how they hate their lives. People with good self esteem don't feel the need to put down others as they don't need the fake validation. They already feel good about themselves. The next time someone tries to put you down a good reply is to say something akin to "enjoying your low self esteem today?" They won't know what you're talking about but you'll gain the pleasure that you know more about their motivations and about them than they know about themselves. Knowing psychology is great, isn't it? ;)

  • Because inside themselves, they feel so terribly, terribly small that they can't resist the opportunity to try to make someone feel smaller than they themselves actually are. My mother lost the use of her right leg when she was 2 years old from polio. She wanted to be a cheerleader in high school and when she was told that wasn't possible, she said, "Well, we'll see about that." She made the cheerleading squad. She got into LSU and graduated summa cum laude with a degree in education. She and my Dad got married right after graduation and moved to New Orleans. She wanted to teach at a school in the lower 9th Ward, but she was told that they wouldn't send a crippled white girl to teach in a mostly black school. She fought back, and she won -- and she both got the job, and did the job. When I was in high school someone suggested that my grades and test scores were good enough that I should apply to an Ivy League school. When I mentioned that to my guidance counselor, he laughed at me. My Mom told me to not ever let anyone tell me what I could or couldn't do. So, here I am, years later, with a bachelor's degree from Harvard, a law degree from Georgetown, a 21-year career in public policy that included, among other things, a small part in both writing and enforcing the transportation accessibility provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and a Mom who is my hero. This dipshit called you a cripple because you have a physical condition that presents you with some challenges. Overcoming that just takes some perseverance. His problem is a crippled soul, and I'm afraid he's probably stuck with that. The best thing you can do is feel sorry for him. His whole life is going to be stunted.
  • thats the mindless, crappy society we live in!!!! I wouldnt let it bother you nor would i sit and cry about it, disabled people are persecuted and made fun of on a regular basis!!!!! As sad as that is thats the kind of idiot people we have to share this world with!!!!
  • If there is one thing to be grateful for is that you did not waste time getting to know him only to find out this is what was under everything. oh yeah there is no answer as to why some people are like this. I've told my sons that if their wife/girlfriend ever tell me they did something wrong to her they would have me to deal with. Good luck to you.
  • Welcome to the big world full of small minded people, LBM! . Here's what I want you to do: . Picture him in your mind's eye. If you're right handed, I want you to envision reaching out with your left hand, grabbing him by the shirt, lifting him up on his toes, and then with your right hand I want you to reach WAAAAAAAY back behind you and swing the hand all the way around and slap the sh*t out of the left side of his face. . Now, here's the important part: As you follow through with the slap and your arm swings WAAAAAYYYYY over to the left (because it was a MIGHTY blow), when your arm reaches the end of it's travel I want you to swing it back to your right as hard as you can and smack the sh*t out of the right side of his face. . At this point you will have a very satisfied feeling of smooth, reciprical movement combined with loud smacking sounds. The point now is to continue this repeatedly until you are satisfied. . This is known as "b*tch slapping" and some people just need to have the sh*t b*tch slapped out of them. Even if only in your mind.
  • I am sorry to hear you had to take this from a stranger. I know exactly the type of person you're talking about. They are the most inconsiderate and unempathetic creatures on the planet. In fact, they don't even deserve to be classified as human beings and infact are the opposite of innocent animals in every ways. They can only be classified as demons in human forms. The way they treated you without worrying about how you felt inside is also the same way they expresses their horrible cruelty on innocent animals as well, but only one thousand times more cruel, because towards animals, they know they can get away with murder. I tell you, the one that did this to you is also the one that enjoy doing the below activities to animals as well. People like these don't have to get to know you to hate you. Being pure psychopaths, they don't have a conscience. They just enjoy causing pains to others everywhere they bump into a person or animal. Consider yourself lucky that as a human being you have human rights so they didn't dare to physically hurt you, unless they could completely get away from it. If you were an an innocent animal at that time, I'm afraid you wouldn't have survived to tell us of the incident. It is just like with the way they treated these animals below in the video. The animals have nothing to do with these bullies. But the bullies deliberately go to hurt them like there's no tomorrow. My point is that this person belongs to this group of people (psychos) that enjoy causing pain to humans and animals alike. They should never have been born as humans in the first place.
  • Try to forgive him. He has the problem, not you.
  • Unfortunately there are lots of unpleasant bastards out there. It's not your fault it's his failing, chin-up :)
  • Sweetie, the unfortunate truth in life is that there are some really horrible people out there. The great news is that there are some exceptional folks out there too. I'm sorry you had this painful experience. Sending you wishes that only the best, most loving people come your way. You deserve nothing less.
  • That's just the way of the world, m'dear. The drunk who was unkind is that way, drunk or sober. I think it is the same thing as any bigot/racist. These "people" take it upon themselves to be judge/jury/executioner (somtimes) just because they don't like something about us. Who the he** cares what they think? They are the low end of the species in my opinion. You know, the superior/arrogant/blowhard/judgmental ones? I know it probably hurt, but really..consider the source. My dad used to always say that. That guy is really a pathetic loser..why let him have any effect on you? He has enough to deal with..after all, he has to live with himself day after day. Just be glad you are who you are and grateful you are not him! Happy Tuesday! :) ((hugs))
  • You have to learn to ignore these people. People like that are ignorant, and probably suffer from low self-esteem. To put down someone like that for cheap laughs makes them feel "big" somehow. They only prove the opposite. Yes, ignorant remarks like that can hurt, I know that personally. Just take comfort in the fact that one of these days, their ignorance and stupidity will more than likely come back to bite them in the butt.
  • Obviously the guy is an idiot.
  • Because it has nothing to do with YOU. It's all about HIM .. and his friends too. Likely it would not matter if wasted or not. There are just some people on this earth who are what I'll call "imcomplete". If you think of our time on this earth as a journey .. and during it, we become as fully "human" as we can? Hopefully .. learning and growing along the way? Well, some may need a few thousands times at it from some of the behaviors we see around us. Hatred, ignorance, greed, envy ... So if we accept as a given that on this earth we have all kinds of people .. some very, very ignorant and hateful ones as you've just run into .. but also at the other end of the spectrum, some very, very wise and loving ones? Then ... Note which kind you just ran into .. acknowledge that in your mind and heart .. and move along. Leave them behind you. Keep your OWN life in YOUR course .. not theirs. In so doing, your path will more and more often intersect with LOTS of people .. including those who are more CIVIL (an art and way of being that's often forgotten in this world). Model in your own behavior how you wish to be treated. Be kind and civil. If cruel people do as they did or worse .. move beyond and beside them. Carry on. Others (who you aren't even aware of) will see YOU go by .. and say .. "wow .. that person has values and lives by them." Imagine one of them thinking of YOU that you are "an honorable person"!!!! Better THAT path - than to stand still waaaaaay back there - spending ANY of your precious life force on THOSE people. Hurt, anger, confusion, all of it. Yes, feel it and acknowledge it for what it is. That's experience and life learning. But then .. move along. I'm glad you wrote this. I see MANY answers here and that tells you and I something as well. Best to you ... :)
  • ROTFL, let's try this again...prior response was too long, AB did not pick it up...will answer with multiple comments...
  • Some humans by nature are cruel at heart. It makes them feel superior. He better hope there is no such thing as karma. Sorry you had to experience such a thing.
  • I think one should feel sorry for people like that. Their ignorance is just beyond comprehension and they are noticed by others, don't you worry. There are very few people who accept that level of stupidity even though they may not say so at the time. You will meet idiots through out life. The best thing is to surround your self with kind folk and don't pay attention to the nasties.
  • I am disabled too and I hate it when people assume that I'm dumb or stupid. I can relate to your problem. I guess people are cruel becaue they want to feel better about themselves by making fun of people. They want to feel superior. Or maybe it's because they're jealous. They want you to feel hurt inside. Don't let them win. They are no better than anyone else. Ignoring the pain is tough, but remember that the pain doesn't last forever, and that you're not going to remember that event in the future.
  • What is cp?
