There sure are a lot of bullshiat stories from people here trying to justify their dislike or hatred of less fortunate people. It sure would be a shame if you suffered a severe head injury causing you to have to learn how count to potao also.

On behalf of everyone in the thread who has a special needs child I'd like to offer a big "fark yooooou" to all of the clowns who think making fun of the disabled is funny. Yeah, I get it. You're a pussy in the real world who never can gather the balls to say what you think so you use the anonymity of the internet to put on a fake George Carlin impression. But, I'm just here to tell you that the shiat is weak. The folks who are here laughing with you have the same inferiority issues that you have so they're also here seeking validation by grabbing at the low hanging fruit. Most of them are losers just like you. If you all could see one another, you'd be embarrassed by the company that you keep. No, I don't have a special needs child. By GODs grace, my children are healthy. I just thought this would be a good time to remind you cowards that you're nothing like the person that you try to be on the internet. And that may be good because your internet persona is stupid, too. Please don't take this as the angry rant of some PC guy. I'm not not angry at you, I pity you.

WhippingBoy: BronyMedic: doczoidberg: Is it illegal to have sex with someone who has Down Syndrome?

Nope, actually, as long as they are legally able to consent for themselves. And there's a good chance the kid will come out "normal", so to speak.

WhippingBoy: durbnpoisn: I've seen people switch tables in restaraunts to avoid my kids, and they are even special needs. My kids are actually very polite and well behaved.

Some people just cannot tolerate young people.

What's wrong with that? As long as the restaurant is able to accomodate them in a reasonable manner, I see no problem with this.

There's a difference in asking to move to another table, and going on a diatribe about how 'tards should be kept in the basement. One is polite, the other's being a total douche.

I was responding to the poster, not the original post. durbnpoisn seemed offended that some people didn't want to sit by her kids. Who farking cares?



First of all, I'm a dude.
Secondly... I didn't mean to imply that I was offended by people moving. I was just pointing out that it happens quite frequently. And I seriously cannot take offense to someone wanting to move away. I'm confused by their lack of tolerance, but that's about it.

ashinmytomatoes: CapeFearCadaver: I think one of the best parts about a steak dinner (besides the flesh) is the potato. I love the potato. Smothered in sour cream and butter, bit of cheddar and Oh! maybe a couple of bacon pieces.... potatoes.

Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew...

DoBeDoBeDo: So I looked at the boy and said "that's right, your mom thinks my kid is special, and apparently doesn't think the same of you!"


Yeah, I'm not sure saying something mean and upsetting to a child was the right way to "get back" at the mother.

The little boy didn't do anything besides look. Something's very wrong when children become the target of retaliation in a feud between adults.

ProfessorOhki: serpent_sky: This story doesn't add up. For NO reason whatsoever, other than the kid was sitting there, they asked to be moved?  I find it hard to believe. There was noise or some other disturbance, more likely than not, which is a fair reason to ask to move tables regardless of how special needs the kid is.  If there was no noise, no anything, then they were assholes of a very high order... but...
IF they were such assholes of such a high order,  that the waiter decided not to serve them... they just left? Without making  scene? Complaining to the manager? No demanding the waiter be fired? That seems unlikely if they were the horrible people we're supposed to believe they were.

Simply put: I don't believe any of this happened as described.

I believe the part where the waiter told the family how he'd heroically stood up for them.


You know, you have a point...

What if instead, it was the *waiter* who said something offensive about the special needs kid? He was probably doing extra work, maybe had to clean up a spilled drink or two and then the family asked to be moved to another table.

He thought they were pissed too, and said some offensive comment to which they were appalled at. Not wanting to embarrass or upset the special needs family any further, they left without speaking to the manager.

The waiter, worried about losing his job, is smart enough to realize that they will eventually call back, so he concocts the same story, but replaces the customer as being the jerk in it. -That way if they *do* call in, they sound like they are just lying to get a free meal.

In the meantime, he gets a larger tip from this table and has an excuse for why he shouldn't have to pay for the meal of the family that just left.

***or*** it's just a marketing scheme that the restaurant cooked up to get more visitors.

Usually it's the simplest one... I'm thinking marketing scheme.

She says she learned this family had told the waiter that "Special needs kids should be kept in special places." At that point, the waiter apparently told the customers that he was offended and would not serve them.

/Pretty cool, i would double tip that person for standing up to asshole customers. Should have gotten the manager and had them ejected from the establishment and told never to come back. I would love to work at a place where you could get away with this. Power to the worker, fark the hater family.

The normal people at the other table would not have had a problem unless this challenged kid was doing something extremely offensive.

We need legislation that would allow the restaurant management to easily deal with problems like this.

Some of us just don't like kids, and especially, the sounds they make. When out, we realize we will encounter them, but try to avoid them as much as possible.  You need to understand that people like me aren't going to "family" restaurants and complaining there are families there. That's just stupid and poor planning. But if I'm sitting down to a nice meal and a couple of glasses of wine, damned straight I don't want to hear a kid cry or whine or make noise or play or any of that.  You're more tolerant of it because you're used to it. To those of us never around kids, their sounds are worse nails on a chalkboard and are not cute or endearing.  The fact that people can't understand that confuses me.

Orgasmatron138: Children who have special needs can sometimes make a scene in public. It can be irritating to others nearby. Imagine, though, that it's your kid. Imagine the struggle of having to deal with that everywhere you ever go. Not wanting to keep your child a recluse, but always worrying that your child will act out or have a tantrum.

Cut the parents a break and just f'ing ignore the kid, people.


I get that parents need to acclimate their children to the real world, particularly special needs kids. But if your kid is throwing a tantrum, special needs or not, the fact is, is that other people are paying to sit there and your kid is farking up their night by yelling or whatever. Get the kid out of there, period. Have some empathy for other people.

Some people find it unappetizing to be around a person with any disability. It is sad, you know.

I marvel

Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: WinoRhino: Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: Agreed. I asked to be moved once because the special needs kid was throwing a non-stop screaming hissy fit and throwing food at other diners. At one point, he swept everything off the table (dishes and all) onto the floor in a fit of rage.

I'm going to call bullshiat on your story. You're suggesting that the parents and the restaurant simply sighed and let that happen, huh? And you graciously did as well, only asking to be moved, huh? Nope. Never happened.

I never said anything about parents. He was with a caregiver who was clearly ill-equipped to handle having him out at a restaurant. What would you rather have me do? Go over to the table and tell them to "shut their kid up"? What's the matter with you, anyway? Simply asking to be moved to another table is a reasonable and adult response.


I agree, this is the appropriate thing to do. Even parents can have a lapse in judgement, thinking their sped child can handle a situation that they really can't.

I'm a nervous wreck whenever I'm in public with my son. You can't really stop a meltdown of a 5ft, 140lb kid with the intellect/communication skills of a 2yr old. Parents/caregivers have to wait it out and apologize profusely to those around you.

Simpler still: the other family did leave because they didn't want to be there; the waiter, who said nothing, just took credit to get a better tip.

No, that's just an urban myth. Though from the way they cuss and twitch you'd think they'd be a lot tougher than they are.

Also, autistic kids don't have super mental powers like in the movies. My nephew kept beating up this autistic kid in his class who he was passing his homework off to, and the autistic kid kept getting it all wrong. I had to have this long talk with my nephew about how "Asperger's" is just a polite term for "retard", like they call leprosy "Hansen's disease" now.

If a group of adults ask to be seated away from a table with children, don't automatically think they are doing it because of the children's possible behaviour. I have been with girlfriends at dinner where we get laughing and discussing child-inappropriate topics and we wouldn't want little ears to hear our very adult topics. It's not always a negative thing, parents, sometimes it's a courtesy to your family.

My  kids behave in a restaurant, or they get to sit in the car while the rest of us enjoy our meal. That's the threat, at least, I've never had to actually follow through on it.

The secret to having your kids behave? Talk to them. Make them involved in the process. One of my girls tries to find the perfect dishes to "split" with me on the menu. The other loves to find really unusual things to try. When she was 5, she was perusing the menu at a Greek seafood restaurant and asked the waitress if she could "please have the steamed clams with a side of roasted potatoes." We don't allow electronics, books, or phones at the table. Dinner is time for family.

ZeroPly: I had to have this long talk with my nephew about how "Asperger's" is just a polite term for "retard", like they call leprosy "Hansen's disease" now.


Actually, no.

"Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger's syndrome or Asperger disorder, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical (peculiar, odd) use of language are frequently reported"

Guess what? Most adults don't want to hear your cackling laughter and "very adult topics" when they're trying to enjoy dinner. If really want to be courteous, stay at home. Or if you do go out, try to conduct yourselves with a modicum of class and decorum.

Sorry, I have a son who is autisitic (non-verbal). Other than his inability to speak and some slow developed social skills, just looking at him you can't tell. Last week in Target he was walking through the toy aisles and I was following him, he was doing his normal low level hum that keeps him happy and kind of sounds like he's humming a song. A little boy did a double take on him as he passed and his mom tells him "don't pay attention to him, he's 'special'"

So I looked at the boy and said "that's right, your mom thinks my kid is special, and apparently doesn't think the same of you!"

She gave me a very bad stink eye and walked off.

Some people have no farking courtesy and ALWAYS assume the worst. I've waited tables on people that you could just tell from the time they sat down that NOTHING was going to be right, no matter how good the service, food, drinks, etc. It's a superiority thing.

You want us to believe the above but then say a small child did a double take when passing your child ? and the mother was able to recognize your child had special needs but he doesn't look it at all ?

Kids seem to know immediately that my son has a lower developmental age, possibly from the awkward way he carries himself, blank expression, tics, vocalizations or maybe the language I use to talk to him, Very simple. Language for a toy aisle for example might be: "Do you like that?" "Do you see Thomas?" The toys would be below age level. A child can be non-verbal, look normal physically yet still gives tells to his/her disability.

durbnpoisn: I've seen people switch tables in restaraunts to avoid my kids, and they are even special needs. My kids are actually very polite and well behaved.

Some people just cannot tolerate young people.


My parole dictates i stay a certain distance away from children

serpent_sky: This story doesn't add up. For NO reason whatsoever, other than the kid was sitting there, they asked to be moved?  I find it hard to believe. There was noise or some other disturbance, more likely than not, which is a fair reason to ask to move tables regardless of how special needs the kid is.  If there was no noise, no anything, then they were assholes of a very high order... but...
IF they were such assholes of such a high order,  that the waiter decided not to serve them... they just left? Without making  scene? Complaining to the manager? No demanding the waiter be fired? That seems unlikely if they were the horrible people we're supposed to believe they were.

Simply put: I don't believe any of this happened as described.


The only time I ever notice mentally handicapped people in public is if they're walking all weird (the eye is naturally drawn to people with unusual gaits) or if they're making some kind of disturbance. I'm not buying that these people just happened to notice a well behaved mentally handicapped person and biatched about it...it's POSSIBLE sure, but to me the most likely answer is that some kind of disturbance was happening. Of course I'd gladly tolerate all the tards and speds (pardon my language) raising hell everywhere I go if I just didn't have to deal with children raising hell. At least the tards and speds have an excuse, the kids were usually just poorly parented.

I have two special needs kids. One thing that you quickly develop is a thick skin; I tend to not care what anyone thinks (within reason) anymore.

Maybe you should stop farking your sister


OMG

WhippingBoy: moonscatter: The secret to having your kids behave? Talk to them. Make them involved in the process.

serpent_sky: durbnpoisn: Secondly... I didn't mean to imply that I was offended by people moving. I was just pointing out that it happens quite frequently. And I seriously cannot take offense to someone wanting to move away. I'm confused by their lack of tolerance, but that's about it.

Some of us just don't like kids, and especially, the sounds they make. When out, we realize we will encounter them, but try to avoid them as much as possible.  You need to understand that people like me aren't going to "family" restaurants and complaining there are families there. That's just stupid and poor planning. But if I'm sitting down to a nice meal and a couple of glasses of wine, damned straight I don't want to hear a kid cry or whine or make noise or play or any of that.  You're more tolerant of it because you're used to it. To those of us never around kids, their sounds are worse nails on a chalkboard and are not cute or endearing.  The fact that people can't understand that confuses me.


That earns you a green highlight in my book. You know, because I'm sure you'd really care about that.

/all to avoid saying 'this'

Ed Finnerty: On second thought, I will have the special needs kid. With hollandaise sauce on the side.


Barbaric animal!

Everyone knows they go better with a Bearnaise sauce. That tarragon really makes it!

Was it one of those loud and obnoxious tards? If so, I totally understand not wanting to sit near it.

Apparently you've never served. I don't recommend you start.
Some fine individuals let their inner asshole come out when seated for meals. It's astounding.
Do I worry about making enough money to pay my bills? Some. I worry mostly about the need to return to bartending to pay those bills.

Bearnaise prefers scallions in his sauce.
