I agree with you Addie. It is all how you look at yourself and deal with what you have/haven't been given in life. Then others see you this way as well.
One day I was out on my scooter. There was a big construction truck parked half-way in a driveway and half on the sidewalk. There was no way I could get around it. So I asked very nicely if he could move the truck. His nasty remark "You don't look handicapped." I returned his crack with, "I wasn't until I came upon your truck. You just made me handicapped." After a few more nasty remarks and the threat to report him and the company for blocking a handicap access, he decided it was wise to not argue anymore and moved the truck. He and the company he was working for would have faced a $500.00 fine and he knew it. Don't mess with this crazy Indian. After all I came from a tribe that were head hunters.
