I got my first ableist comment about being a disabled parent today

I let my kid hangout with another kid and their mother had some ✨opinions✨

I'm honestly surprised it took this long.

I told her I would pray for her 😂
"Well, when you're a really good mother, sometimes you get a handicap. In fairness, I can't expect you to understand."

@SwampFlower When someone's smart alec'ness takes us by surprise it is near impossible to think of a good comeback.

What the hell was that woman's problem anyways? Hell with her.

@SilkenMist She was gossiping about a lot of other parents of kids in that grade, as well. Her kid is okay but I'll be avoiding more than necessary communication with her in the future 😆

On one hand I am pissed off this is how others treat you. On the other hand I will forever be in love with how you can be so casually devastating to someone acting out.

Aren't those types of people fun? 🤪
Some folks have constipation of the mind and diarrhea of the mouth. Oh well, a good come back can be fun too.

@SlaveEt I felt kinda bad for her. She must have been feeling insecure.

Could be. Most bullies are.
@SwampFlower Feeling insecure evokes sympathy. Trying to pass it on is obnoxious.

Let me beat her up

Reads more like you pushed her into it, to play your victim card. Just to be a petty entitled Karen. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Your disability is not a badge to hide your loathing behind.

@jshm2 Aww!!! Great stuff... tell us more and really demonstrate why you deserve to be blocked for being the turd that you are...

@jshm2 Nothing in the OP that suggested she pushed that other woman into anything. Their kids were just hanging out.

Even if they did get into it, there are some lines one should not cross. It has been said - "Do not mock someone else's struggles, for you might be next".

Seriously? A grown adult?

@Matt85 It happens unfortunately.
Do people know they can just not say every thought they have? 😂
