At times we huu~mons are the cruelist and vilest species that has ever walked on the face of this planet.

Following on from am earlier email of mine from this thread, this week i've had the 'pleasure' of trudging through yet another conversation with someone telling me how wrong it is that people on benefits are given free cars !!

This just gets tiresome. There's no such thing as a free car on the Motability scheme... fact.

I had to labour away telling this person how the Motability scheme isn't run by the government, its run by a charity. They don't give cars away for free, most cars come with a requirement for an advance payment which can run into thousands depending upon spec. and that is then followed by a 36 month lease hire agreement @ £230 a month. How on earth is that free ??

What did I get? ... the usual answer ..... "oh, well I don't know anything about the motability scheme"

How is it that able bodied folks can know so little about the mechanics of the Motability scheme yet feel justified in blowing off about it spouting total garbage?

When I got to the bottom of this persons comments it actually all came down to one simple point ...... my mate has got a better car than me and i'm not happy about that. Materialistic?

I'll bet this person wouldn't want the car if it came with the health problems eh?

I got the 'but you look so well' from a woman at work when I was explaining to her how I felt. It was meant as a compliment I think & was said with such positive enthusiasm but could've been hiding the fact that she thought I was over dramatising or something. I said back well I have a lot of blusher on & she said something along the lines of well yes a few layers of make-up can help I guess. This was a few months ago now but I'm glad I thought of something to say back cos what are you supposed to say to someone when they make such ignorant comments like that? Especially when it's someone you unfortunately have to see most days! Oh yeah I was joking about how I feel hahaha do you get it?!!! :evil: saying that there are some lovely people at my work who accept everything I say, no questions asked :-) well no stupid ignorant ones anyway. I don't mind people asking things like will it get better, are you on medication for it, those I can easily answer & don't mind answering. In fact I like it when people ask questions like that, it means they are genuinely interested & maybe even concerned about me :shock: shocker!!!

Yeah, I get that comment "you look so well" - even had it from a doctor once! Most people have learnt that though I may look well I'm not. If someone who doesn't know me well enough I just say ghat I keep plodding on.
I've often used disabled loos too. The funniest thing that happened was when a few young men who had been drinking were hanging around the disabled loo. I was on crutches and one lad said to me "the ladies is that door". I said "yes but I can't manage the stairs" "there's stairs? No way!" Was his response so I told him to check for himself and he did! "F××× me" he said, "you'd better use the disabled toilet!" :-D and they all moved away so I could use the disabled loo!

people are people and there's always going to be the rude, pig-headed and plain awkward people. Best to try and ignire them.:bear-dancing: :dogrun1: If they could feel the way we feel they'd soon to be nicer!

best to stick with furry friends as they never knock you for using a disabled loo, crutches, wheelchairs or blue badges. They just love us regardless
