For clarification on this story, the bus driver didn’t tell her that, some bigoted old lady on the bus made a huge fuss about it.
@DoctahDonner, god I hare people
@DoctahDonner, that sounds more likely, most bus drivers could give a sh..
@DoctahDonner, that's not bigotry, that's late-stage dementia.
@DoctahDonner, that's not how you use bigot. But it's interesting you knew the other side of the story
@DoctahDonner, sounda about right
@Empshok, which is why we need to let our old people die sooner
@Guy Fawkes, when is one considered old? Asking for a friend....
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, i usually think that if a person cant take care of themselves reliably that they arent living anyway theyre suffering.
Theres no specific age you become old, people have different lifespans. But either because of medical inovation, or lack there of. Weve begun to either outlive our bodies or our brains
@Guy Fawkes, and if this friend chose not to take of themselves...
Am I allowed to die?
I MEAN is he*
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, well thats a whole other can of worms. I believe people have the right to die. I wish that people could have themselves medically euthanized. Within reason, i dont think a 13 year old girl who had a bad day should be able to juat walk in and be dead that day. But bureaucracy would basically take care of that with its in built waiting period
@TheMightyImp, that's exactly how you use bigot - intolerance to those who disagree with you. The old lady told her to get her f***ing dog off the bus. In the old lady's defense, she believed that only yellow labradors could be guide dogs - she wasn't upset at the dog's color, but it's breed. But she was still intolerant. Additional tidbit - this blind person does know what black looks like: she had a head injury when 15 years old, and has had episodic blindness since
@occasionalmutant, the old lady didn't have strong beliefs against the person or dog. She sounds like someone who doesn't like dogs on buses unless they are bonafide guide dogs. Clearly in her experience she has only know beige labradors, and the black Labrador made her believe it was just some pet owner trying to get their dog on the bus. My understanding of bigotry is a strong diametrically opposite belief system where the bigot believes they are right and the rest of the world is wrong. Someone who can't listen to reason. A little like this comment section most of the time.
I’m sure black is the one color she is familiar with
@MetalHeadTony, dangit. Beat me to it. Dark sense of humor friends, unite!
@MetalHeadTony, dark, I like it.
Whoever this bus driver is can go eat a rotting dick
@Anonymous Jack III, wasn’t him it was a stupid lady on the bus who was then promptly ignored as every self-entitled idiot should be
The Doggo isn’t too sure what black is either
I’m confused. Who is the pork supplier?
