Very recently after a long hard day at the salon cutting hair I overheard a conversation. An older male stylist I have known and worked with for over 6 years was talking about a client that he hates. Everyone had a chuckle. Then he goes into this rant about the womens child. How the child does not talk and how she "makes him stupid." Okay so I say Tricia calm yourself, I take a breath. He notices my silence and it finally dawns on him that my 4yr old son talks like a 2yr old maybe. He promptly tries to remove the foot from his mouth, but at no point apologizes. He tried to explain himself and I tried not to cry. I told him that this child could have a disability and that you can't always tell by looking. I always liked this person and respected him because he is a good person. He adopted a drug addicted baby from a prisoner mother who is of a different race than him. I only bring this up because at least 5 times a week for the last 3 years I have to hear how awful it is for him to get the dirty looks because his baby is of a different race than him. I always think awww poor you. Make my child purple with yellow stripes as long as I get to hear my baby communicate properly. Of course I know that this does not actually happen to him because it's 2008 and this is NJ. Trust me he makes it up for the pat on the back. Still I don't hate him, I pity him. Since the "incident" he avoids me like the plague. Sometimes I sense judgement where there is none. I feel I may be overly sensitive but in this case it hurt. It's one thing for kids to be mean and another all together when it's an adult. Just venting because no one I know understands what my world is like.
