Default Sh*t people say

What are the most annoying things that people say to you?

This, as a service dog handler and someone who isn't outwardly disabled, is all too familiar.

Nothing quite that obnoxious, but I think if I hear "does the carpet match the curtains" one more time I'm going to go medieval.

Nobody asked me that when I was a redhead.

Then again I had a mean look about me then. And rightly so would've knocked their teeth out.

Ah, so many things.

Why do you want to help animals but not people?

Why would you move so far away from your family for a boy?

Why don't you just get a job?

(Reality: my immigration status is not worked out so that I can legally work, but people STILL do this after it is explained to them and it makes me want to punch them in the mouth area)

"You're Hispanic? Wow, you don't sound like it!"

I've gotten that several times, and I hate it. It's amazing how many people think that all Hispanics sound like a George Lopez stand-up. Accents are not genetic! Good lord, I don't even know how to speak Spanish! Why in the world should I have a Spanish accent?

I work in entry level construction in a tower so every morning we all squeeze into elevators to be carted off onto the floors (ratio of women to men is 55-1200) So sometimes my butt is inadvertently backed into some dudes' crotch. I've heard "Oh, that's just my hammer/marker/pen/drill/pipe/caulking gun in my pocket/toolbelt so many times. hur dur dur, clever boys.

"omg you're family is from Haiti?! You're so pretty though! You don't even look Haitian!!" "wow you are so smart! It's like you're white!" "OMG YOU ARE SO LUCKY YOU HAVE EPILEPSY! I want a dog!!" "you are so lucky that you just have a pretty tan color!" "do you get seizures when you watch tv?" "how come you have pretty hair if you are mixed?" "wow your tongue is pierced! Does food get stuck in it? Does it get infected?" "why are you reading the book? There is a movie about it..." "hey do you know him? He's from Haiti too!" "well epilepsy sucks, but at least you don't look ugly or have a wheelchair or anything"

Ever want to just look at people when they've said something like that and say, "call the archaeologists; I've just found the Missing Link?"
