I never met so many jerks than I did on this last trip. I got yelled at more times because of my wheelchair and was asked at one point to use a freight elevator by a guest...I handled it like a champ publicly...didn't say a word.... but as soon as I was outta site broke out in tears...
I'm alone too much so seeing and interacting with people in real life is exciting.... until the wheelchair stuff starts...and it always starts...
Kathleen, true friends are sometimes hard to find. I have had my share of "good" friends.
I could write a book.
I try to be a good friend, also, doing for them, a little one-sided. I do understand that.
I cannot depend on others for my happiness.
Reading the way you were treated, rages me!
They should be in a place crying for how they treated you.
You can still be kind and stick up for yourself and what the hell anyway! You may never see them again. What the hell anyway, they should end up feeling really bad, if they don't well, they can kiss it!
It hurts me to know how people hurt you.
Hang in there and Chev is right, keep being kind but not someone's doormat.
I know if I have been kind, it is the other person's problem and their loss.
