I'm faking it!

Saturday evening we worked the gallery. Our friends came over during dinner time and we picked something up to eat and had dinner at the gallery around the desk. We were chatting having a good time and as people walked in, I'd greet them with a welcome and please excuse us for eating in front of them. No big deal.

Until one guy with his family walked in and I welcomed them to our gallery. The dude walked past me and sharply states, "you're faking it". Of course, I look at him bewildered. Excuse me? I said. "You're faking it, I just saw your legs move", he says. He caught me off guard because here I was having a good time with hubby and friends and now this guy is confronting me about something he knows nothing about. I quickly came back, but in shock said, "not all people in wheelchairs are paralyzed". He comes back with a, "that's not for real is it"? Now I'm getting pissy say, "yeah I just went and bought this so I could sit in it and look cool." Yeah but I clearly saw you move your legs" he says, I say, "that's because I can move my legs, they are weak and I have bad balance." My friends who have never experienced my world of ignorance before are sitting there with their mouths open in disbelief. Hubby and myself start to get very explanitory with the guy and you can tell he thinks we are pulling his leg. He looking like us like yeah right, who'd you get that from. We're not pulling a fast one on him, he knows better.

Now don't get me wrong, there is some part of me that is saying to myself.......Wow I don't look like I should be in a chair.......I don't know what that means, but it feels half way good. Snapping back into conciousness realizing that doesn't matter it's just the sheer rudeness of the way he said it. He didn't know the kind of person I was or if my life was so fragile that I couldn't handle things said.

He just basically walked past us into the back part of the gallery with his family and we continued on eating in shock at the balls of this guy. I realized I needed to calm down because this was our place of business and it didn't look good with us getting all huffy with this guy to the new customers walking in not knowing what just happened.

The rude dude and his family leave and our guy friend says, "What the Fuck"? My husband agreeing with him has to shhh him because we still had customers and our friend even apologized to the people for his language and he explained. They were understanding. Then our other friend says, "I can't believe that". I told her, "welcome to my world". She comes back saying, "I'm sorry". "What are you sorry for", I said. , She said, I am human and I am sorry that another human would say something like that to you. I told her...... it's just ignorance.

Gee, why didn't someone cold cock this son of a bitch? That MOFOS, had I been around, would be walking funny.

Posted a song today with you in mind. It's more about its title than the content. :)

Check it out.

La Roo said...

You don't bitch slap someone for saying stupid stuff. The thought of rearranging of the dudes walking pattern brought a smile to my face, but not worth going to jail for.

I checked it out and thanks. Thanks... for more than you know.

Bob said...

I wouldn't bitch slap the guy. I'd just ask: "How would you like your scrotum....with or without balls?"

And yeah, it would be worth a little jail time just to put a stupid asshole in his place. Would not be the first time I hit the slammer for fighting or doing something stupid so they would not be arresting a virgin. I'm just saying....

Glad you liked the song. You really are blessed in so many ways, Laroo.

He would have been seeing stars if it would have been my wife. But if I think about it. Your husband is a stronger man than I would have been. People these days have no respect for anyone. I am no saint I work for my father and I have cursed customers before and have even kicked someone off my lot last month. it is your gallery and it can be by your rules.

You happened upon a complete fool,
I am tall and skinny, and not a day goes by without hearing someones unasked for opinions about how terrible my body is. I just ignore the people with the tasteless remarks.

Bob said...

I agree it's a good thing to ignore unkind or tasteless remarks. Like everyone else I get them, too. Comments about how huge my penis is . . . I just ignore them.

Gray said...

Bigger said...

Well now that we know Bobs penis size???????

Sulpicia said...

Wow. Just wow.

I cannot imagine the love this guy spreads wherever he goes... How is such bitterness created? 'Cause it's ignorance for sure. But it's rage and bitterness and all sorts of other things. One damaged human being.

I'm fairly certain I wouldn't have your grace. (Even surrounded by art.) You are one amazing woman.

I admire your reaction to his ignorant action. Educate as much as you can and then go about your life peacefully knowing who's right and who is wrong. Talented, beautiful, wise and kind. You're a great one.

C said...

laroo, i am so sorry this happened to you and happens other times too. maybe god leads all the fucktards to you so you can show them what grace is.

stay calm, educate, i say, turn the other cheek.

then shoot 'em in the balls as they walk out. yep. that's me.

fucking asswipes, there're everywhere! yeah, and he reproduced? well, let's hear it for the cesspool of genes... it needs more clorox...

hey, you could have told him you can make your ass twitch too, and when he goes to look, blow a huge fart in his face.... a wet one! ewwww thats gross but i kinda like it...

Southern Sage said...

I'm not much of a turn the other cheek kinda guy but in that scenario it was surely the thing to do. He'll get his for sure and say the wrong thing at the wrong time and someone will adjust his attitude.
cool vid above too!

Crash said...

Glad I wasn't there.

Fuck him.

How lonely and terrible his world must be to imagine people would fake such pain ...

What a wanker. When people are being ignorant wankers to me, I think to myself that at the end of the day, it's their loss and they're really just doing it to themselves, as it's them having to live all life with being ignorant wankers, not me.
