111. yes i do think she was from the south
Edited on Wed Sep-13-06 02:30 AM by pitohui
and she was not being rude, for a southerner if she wished to be rude she would just pretend the child and the mom and kurtnyc and the rest of ya'll didn't effin' exist

are we really this clueless?

folks -- i am a fucking high functioning autistic -- if i was young enough to be in school after the diagnosis was established i would almost certainly be asperger's

and even *I* see this

ya'll honestly can't see the lady was trying to be kind

if she thought she was all so high above ya'll she wouldn't have said DICK to the child

certainly she would not have suggested the child would one day be working on WALL STREET

she should get her ass whipped for NOT being a bigot and for NOT being so "high and mighty" and above it all? in other words, the true asshat would have been given a free pass and not even noticed

but the "liberal" blue collar southern lady is condemned

what the hell is wrong w. us?

we punish people for trying to be kind and then wonder why we're fucked
