Narrow minded fucktards

There is a group home for ex addicts with psychiatric issues near my house. I was walking past it when a man walked up to me and he was talking to himself about all kinds of conspiracies. It was painfully obvious that he was a paranoid schizophrenic. I listened to him ramble on for a second when this woman walked by and said: “All a bunch of crazies. I don’t want them in our neighbourhood, they should throw them all in jail!!”. 

I had to do my very best not to blow up at her and instead I calmly said: “I’ve got BPD along with a whole other bunch of mental health issues and I live in this neighbourhood as well, I suppose that you want me thrown in jail as well?!”.

She turned red in the face and quickly walked away.

Narrow minded people like her really piss me the fuck off!! No, you do not “just throw the crazies in jail”!! How is that helping?! You give them the proper help that they need, you don’t just throw them aside as if they’re trash!!

Oh, my blood is still boiling!!!

  1. You reacted exactly the right way. I’d probably just become speechless with rage and seethe for hours (well I guess you’re doing that, too ^^) but you remained articulate and cool, you stood up for yourself, and for them too! That’s a fucking superpower right there. I’m in awe. *-*

    • Haha, thank you!!!

      Yeah, the old me would have punched her in the face and while I reaaaaaaally wanted to do just that I didn’t want to give her the chance to feel like she was right, that we’re all crazy.

      I am still seething indeed so I decided to go see a movie! I’m waiting for the movie to start right now

  2. They told me that back in the old days of the institution where I stayed, people would come after church and sit on the lawn out in front of the institution and watch the “crazies” for entertainment! Glad I didn’t live back then! You are quite remarkable and brave to assert yourself the way you did! Kudos!

    • Wow!! I can’t believe that they did that!!! If I was in that situation I would have flipped, I would have shown them what real crazy is!
