The Answer Is Yes

18th September 2012

Finally, there exists a Shit People Say to People With Disabilities video:

When I was single, and I got ‘the sex question’ as an unsuccessful pickup line, the conversation would go something like this:

Moron:  Can you have sex?

Me:  Yes, but if you have to ask, I won’t be having it with you.

    I’m glad I wasn’t taking a drink at the time I read that. Sounds exactly like something a friend of mine would say.

    I think, if memory serves me, that someone once asked if my guidedog helps me have sex.
    Seriously. This shit writes itself.

      If someone asked me that about my service dog, I would answer, “Yes, I’m into bestiality. Care for a threesome?”

    Lorna, this had me chuckling since it depicts what a pain it is to deal with stupidity. Really, can you tell me where the smart people have gone? Enlighten me and give me hope for personkind! 🙂

    The guy at 00:38 did the pitying look to a T! Helps to see this video though, I think I may have said one of those quotes once or twice (not the sex one though!).

    Can we race?
    A secret, I’ve thought about that.
    But I know I’d lose.

      I s’pose this is the part where I say that when Sarge and I were choosing quotes for our wedding invites, we arm-wrestled for one of them. I got carried away, and forgot to let him win.

    What? No head patting?
    You have probably also heard “Did you have an accident?” and “Will you get better?”, and “How long have you been like this?”, and “You are so brave!” (How do they know that?). Hat’s off to all those who either exercise restraint and mountains of courtesy – or, conversely, come up with great responses like yours!
