Since I’ve been on crutches, I have become acutely aware of how impatient many people are with “the handicapped.”
This morning, my wife and I were on our way to catch the bus downtown for work. We’re walking side by side. Some woman comes up the sidewalk behind us. She’s obviously exasperated that I broke my leg on purpose just to inconvenience her, but rather than simply say, “Excuse me,” she walks about three inches behind us, continually sighing.
Finally, I motion to my wife to get in front of me, and the woman huffs past us. She gets to the corner, crosses the street, and promptly slips on a patch of wet ground and falls right on her ass. Her side, actually, her right side.
Ha fucking ha, you dumb bitch! Serves you right! I only wish she’d have broken her own leg, and see how easy it is to get around for a while.
