I’m only blind, I’m not an alien!

omg i am so wound up right now. all morning one of the members at the basement club has been saying things to wind me up. he’s a bit how should i put it, tactless. he’s likely to say absolutely anything, you just never know what is going to come out of his mouth. he gets himself into a lot of hot water because he just blurts out all sorts of things.

this morning he keeps going on about blindness. he met this blind person and that blind person. do i know them? is it harder to be blind and walk with a cane, he knew a woman with a cane, then he moved on to I was blind for four days, I prayed, it cured me. lol had to laugh at that ridiculousness.

but oh my god. i want to kill him. or seriously hurt him. because he’s getting on my last nerve. I’m only blind, I’m not a fucking alien!

might as well be though for how he’s acting towards me. he’s also been talking about helen keller, did i know she was blind, deaf and dumb, and how sad that was.

I am trying to volunteer dude, I dont want to talk about helen keller and blindness stereotypes.

Thank god he’s gone now, he left a little bit ago. I was never so glad to see him leave. Usually I’m fairly tolerant of him, but not today. Today I am just not in the mood, I’ve had it up to here. I know he’s mentally ill and seriously mentally ill at that, but still. We all in here are mentally ill, doesnt give people a right to say what they want when they want and make others feel uncomfortable.

ok, rant over.

  1. Hahahahaha I think such people like this guy are everywhere. I meet such individuals pretty regularly, have a few even in my family and always wonder whether to laugh or kill them. Such intrusiveness is one of the things I’m not very tolerant towards. I’d be raging if I had to face with someone like this. It shows pretty well how people are not educated enough about blindness and in disabilities in general. You could tell him there’s nothing sad about Helen Keller even though she was disabled, she was an incredible person and achieved so much, maybe you’d change his views at least a bit, though I suppose such people’s views can’t be very flexible and easy changeable. 😀
