I expected to be over this, but apparently, I’m not. A couple of days ago, I got into a cab, cane in hand and positioned myself in the seat accordingly. The cabbie proceeds to make small talk, however, in the most inappropriate way. He asks me if I was veteran from the war (due to the I guess). I told him that a strained a muscle in hopes that the Conversation would ne over, but considering the way my life has been this year, I should have known better.
The cab driver begins to emphasize my can informed me that I should be glad that its temporary and not a permanent disability. I’m floored at this point and I hear my therapist’s voice telling me to breathe. I was there seconds from busting this man’s head with cane.
I know he didn’t mean any harm, but how offensive can one person be; how ignorant do you have to be to say something like that. My blood was boiling then and it is boiling now.
