I Really Wanted To Say Something…

So I was at the library yesterday looking at different reading challenges and there were these two girls sitting near me. They had to be in the 9th grade because they smelled like fresh meat.

Anyway, you know the obnoxious teenage stereotype right? Loud, cackling, annoying, and doing all of this in the library where you’re supposed to shut the fuck up.

A woman comes in and she has to be in her mid 50’s and behind her is who I assume to be her son, and he clearly has some sort of disability. He came in making some noises and snapping his fingers. I am no doctor but, it’s obvious he has some sort of problem. But you know what I do? Not a damn thing, because he’s with his mother or caregiver, and he’s just minding his business. He’s making noises here and there, but who cares.

This is how I looked when I heard them laughing.

These two bitches (its 2017 I need to try and not curse too much when I blog) girls start laughing, running into the shelves to laugh loud, and it truly took a lot to not have me say something. It’s 2017 and people still laugh at others with disabilities? They were mimicking his snorting sounds and were being cruel. Joking about how he would fail at the mannequin challenge because he keeps snorting and moving.

I am no stick in the mud, and I laughed my ass off when Eric Cartman wanted to join the special Olympics to get money… but show this woman and that man some respect.

I was glad when they left. I hope karma gets them good.

Also my face….

Should I have said something? I always hate the person that never says anything, but I didn’t want to start a scene. If they would have gotten physical with the poor guy then those two girls would have gotten these hands. What would you have done?

  1. That’s insane. How stupid can you be to act like that and make fun of people? I’m like you in that even if I see something that I see as completely inappropriate I’ll get offended but never actually say anything… I call it tolerance but really it’s just because I’m weak 😛

  2. I’m a little biased because I’m a very impatient and angry person 😂 but I would have spoke up. I would tell them how disgusting they are and how ashamed they should be or themselves for thinking they’re somehow above that child. He probably goes through enough as is and they have no right to behave so pettily. (That’s how it would sound without the inevitable cussing.) 😂

  3. As horrible as this is, I probably would have done what you did and said nothing. I hate confrontation! I would have given them some serious stink-eye though.

  4. What they were doing was absolutely wrong and shows complete ignorance on their part. As much as we all would like to jump in and say something in moments like this (which we should do), it would have been a total waste of air for you to say something to them. However, it would have showed courage and respect to that young man and his mom if somebody had stood up and said something to those 2 low life girls. Karma has a way of coming back and getting those who deserve it…they will get theirs one day!

    1. Yeah I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, if they were actually at the library to do some studying or something they wouldn’t have been so cruel. I knew the minute I sat down and saw them foxing around that they were going to be a problem.

  5. I’m not going to deny that 5 or even 7 years ago I would have turned away myself. However I believe I would have been so hot under the collar that these two juveniles would have gotten a great dose of stereotypical bullying. I’m not saying it’s what you should of done by any means but I have put full grown adults in their place…sad I know it was just last summer…but man my temper is faster than my brain these days and the shit just flies out of it….I have to meditate in the middle of the grocery store to keep from saying stuff to people. I think in this scenario you made the right decision karma is a bitch to deal with!
