What mom doesn't know is that this "kind stranger" was really just being PC.
 
2013-09-04 05:13:27 PM
I'd be more inclined to throw in an awesome boot to note

"God only gives special children to special people."

"Special" being another word for mentally deficient.

FTFA: "England explained that Riley, who has had three major brain surgeries for epilepsy, gets 'rowdy' out of frustration when he can't communicate."

What's his Fark handle?

A lovely gesture.  He pays the bill, makes some platitude about god and 'special' children and LEAVES.

Because he can.
 
2013-09-04 11:04:57 PM
What a cool story. Good for everyone involved.
 
2013-09-04 11:05:54 PM
When kids get rowdy, you take them outside.  It's fine to be autistic, but if you can't behave, then you can't be with others in a public place. This kid isn't learning that.

As for the rest of us, we should show compassion like this mystery man.
 
2013-09-04 11:07:09 PM
Yeah, fark this guy for paying for stuff and writing a note.

Yes, I also enjoyed the double meaning in that note.

He should have added "bless your heart" for a flawless southern snark victory.

Your defective kid does not have the right to disrupt a group of people just because your junk sperm and broken eggs can't divide correctly.
 
2013-09-04 11:15:23 PM
That might be the best article the Daily Mail has ever published.

Not saying a whole lot there, though.

Well that was darned neighborly. Restored my faith in humanity a bit after being in these threads all day.

I'd like to buy that person half a beer (cause that's all I can afford, but dammit I'll do it).

The kid should get a nice full day in a big park with a great group of kids I know who like to volunteer. He would have 25 middle school girl chaperones, and he could just go nuts,

Mom can chill in the shade, and I'll mix the music for her.

Over the top? Hell yeah. And why not?

I was in the market this weekend getting some potato salad from the deli when a friend of mine snuck behind me and made a loud whooping noise to scare me. It's something I do often enough that I knew it was him and whooped back twice as loud as I turned around. Except when I turned around there was a chubby retarded boy who apparently had made the original noise, his mom, and what looked like his grandmom staring at me. I felt kinda bad.

My thoughts, spot on.

Gonna go out on a limb and say the kid wasn't black.

/window seat
 
2013-09-04 11:29:54 PM
Very nice gesture, but God must have strange sense of humour.
 
2013-09-04 11:30:47 PM
Came here to break up what I thought was going to be a happy joy-fest with a joke about people being "special." That was wrecked pretty early on, then there was a junk sperm and broken egg comment, and I just can't even compete.

So I'm going to turn it around 180 and say I think it's great there are some incredible people still out there doing great things. Makes me happy.

/Would've love to have gotten in on the "special people" joke first, though

Gecko Gingrich: What mom doesn't know is that this "kind stranger" was really just being PC.


It's always good to positively reinforce unwanted behavior in the name of PC.  That's the entire point of PC.

Well, you didn't perform as we wanted, but here's a pat on the back and a thumb's up because you're from <insert demographic group here>.

O RLY?

Thanks for letting us know Einstein jr.

I appreciate the thought but as usual question the true intentions of any philanthropist. Mostly masturbatory and condescending even if it turns out well.

This gives me a great idea.  Haven't been out to eat at a restaurant since the wife got put in a wheelchair last year, so maybe go to one, smack her in the head with a bat before we go in, and as she drools and babbles the entire time, I can score a kick ass meal.

/I'm a horrible person.
//Wouldn't hit her with a bat.
///But would use a whiffle ball bat.  Really hard.

After all this summer's shenanigans, it's kinda refreshing to hear news from NC that doesn't involve legislating away someone's rights.

Just when I think the whole world has finally gone full retard, somebody goes and does something like this.  Good for him.

I'm too lazy/ apathetic at the moment, but I was going to put together a whole pic by pic replay/ dialogue of the Pat Healy/ Mary from "There's Something About Mary" scene where he's talking about Mongo and his head like a drive-in theater.

"well, it's just an enclosure..." was as far as I got.

Don't judge me, I'm tired.

The child is broken. Throw it out, make a new one.

When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
Down around Greensboro
And the folks are risin' for another day
'round about their homes.
The people of the town are special
And they're proud of all the free pizza.

When normal kids get rowdy, yes, take them outside. That's exactly what you should do.
Often when autistic kids throw a fit that's what you should do.

But when certain autistic kids throw a fit giving them any kind of reaction only encourages them.

I completely understand that sometimes this can annoy other people. I don't like having to hear the kid in the next booth having a tantrum either.
But literally the only way to teach these kids proper behavior is to explain what is expected of them, to put them in that situation, then to reinforce good behavior and not reinforce bad behavior.

And punishing some of these kids actually reinforces the behavior. Sometimes the best reaction is to just not react.

Remember, these aren't normal kids and the normal methods just don't work for them.

Why? There's nothing wrong with whooping it up with chubby, retarded deli customers. This is still America by God!

Ah, Fark. You never disappoint with the parade of cloistered neckbeards passing judgement on the masses. Only place that's worse for that kind of shiat is reddit, and that's saying something.

Is hit it like this, I'd hit it like that, I'd hit it with a whiffle ball bat?

How kind of this anonymous stranger to take time out of his day to remind this poor mother that she is effectively shackled to her disabled kid, and that he has the luxury of not only affording the cost of an extra few meals, but that he can extract himself from her challenging situation at will.  Way to rub her nose in her situation like the dogshiat he evidently sees the kid as.

time in awhile that I have genuinely laughed out loud while reading Fark. Thanks

Reminds me of our jet flight from Phila to Seattle, our little baby girl was crying a lot, and there was this mean looking big beard guy looking at us, and he came over and said something like "what a darling little girl" and smiled broadly.
 
2013-09-05 12:26:32 AM
So some religious nutter says, basically, "You're as retarded as your retarded kid," and these people are happy with that?
