Hey everyone, so I decided that when I don't have a video to post, I will tell you about some of the past experience that I have had. This one is called "The Soap Lady"
One day I was sitting outside a local cafe having coffee and just chilling out with my dad, and I see a homeless person walking up the street, which is normal and so I didn't think anything of it. She was fairly put together but had a lot of make-up on. I mean a LOT. Anyway, when she got to our table she asked for change to buy a soda. My dad gave her a dollar and she was on her way. She didn't really talk to me or look at me during the exchange, which was fine with me. About 15 minutes passes and I kind of forget about her. That is, untill she comes back straight to our table. She places a new pack of Ivory soap right in front of me and mumbles somthing. I'm guessing she said "this is for you," but I'm not really sure. Then she walked away.
Now obviously the soap lady had some issues that may have contributed to her acting in such a way. But the theme of 'people needing to give stuff to me' is not new. I think people see a "poor disabled person" and want to reach out, but they do so in an extremely misguided manner. Nobody give other able-bodied people random things. To date, I have been offered a bar of soap, money (many times, including from a homeless person), Michael Jackson T-shirts, bread, and many other things.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed this story. And hopefully my next post will include some videos.
