Hi all! I was just reading through jaki`s replies re disabled people being treated badly. It prompted me to post about something which happened on Friday.
I was in town with 2 of my carers. 2 of us were waiting on a corner whilst t`other lass went to an atm.
A drunk came up to me and said, `Can I have a ilft darlin`?` Quickly I replied, `Not today luv, me knees are sore`. As he spoke he placed one of his hands on my shoulder and the other on my forearm. Then he looked at my companion, removed his hand to point at her and said, `Excuse me, while I talk.....` at that point he placed a hand just to the left of my bust and looked lecherously at me............in a split second, I thought `Where is he going to touch me next? is he going to kiss me?` So I looked right at him and said in a clear no-nonsense voice `DON`T TOUCH ME!` and glared at him.
He instantly withdrew his hand and his faced changed into a horrific grimace and then he muttered some incomprehensible words,`Ahhgghh........` and off he went.
Phew, was I glad he didn`t get nasty and went on his way to annoy someone else. I thought to myself, `Imagine having THAT come home for his tea and wanting a fumble`. ugh!
My carer was dumbfounded, but the other one (sis) arrived back and said she would`ve given him a mouthful if she`d witnessed what he did.
It seems the rotten old drunken chuffs think we are there for their amusement, eh?
