    I just fill them with a short version hoping they go away quickly. I don't mind conversation but prefer to keep the topic on other things. It's the carrying on about it shit that get's me. So I will usually start filling them full of crazy stories, or tell em' to fuck off. Really though, if the person is being genuine I'm always polite. The fake's bug me.
    Say what you mean and mean what you say because those who mind dont matter and those who matter dont mind.

      I'd say most people with disabilities are like you. We just want to go about our business like everyone else.

          it depends on my mood..if I'm in a comedy mood I make up some crazy story to make the people I'm with have a laugh. If I'm not feeling sociable i just say 'nothing' and keep it moving

            On the dark bright side, maybe some of these assholes will be joining us soon.

                sometimes i just want to get a bumper sticker on the back of my chair that reads...."icy bridge, thrown from my truck, broke my back, paralyzed"
                its kind of a long bumper sticker, but you get the idea.

                  Murrey, I hear you. I'm not offended, just kind of shocked that grown adults allow that kind of stuff to come out of their mouths. And I've become less shocked with time. Although as a nurse, very few things shock me anymore, and I've definitely recognized the whole situation as a chance to educate people about SCI....unless their drunk and/or just plain rude.

                    Drunks asking don't bother me, except the ones that say it breaks their heart. I don't go out hoping to break any hearts, y'know?

                      The best answer I've heard to "where you born that way?" is "yes & you should have heard my mother how loud my mother was screaming when the wheelchair was coming out"

I've been known to ask them to call the house if I've not called them by noon the next day, in case I got in a wreck, since cellphones don't work up there!

                          This process requires makeup etc. It is complete abuse of the AB gentlemen of Greenwood County KS. But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
                          Hah, sounds like a heartbreaker to me. "Thanks for the help Boys, sorry but I'm married."

                            It's awful, isn't it? Sometimes I feel so ashamed...

                            Seriously, late one night hubs and I went to a local bar, not my cowboy bar in KS. This drunken old biker dude came up, he was literally crying, said it broke his heart to see a woman like me in a chair. It's always a weird thing, comforting people cuz you got hurt, and it happens a lot. But that one was EXTREME. "No, really, sir, I'm OK, I have a good life. I do things. I've raised a family. Please don't cry, sir..."

                              Yeah, I am guilty of it myself, decades ago. Had good riding friends, she was in a chair from them getting hit on their bike. One drunken party at their house I told her it was such a shame, and she gave me the same type response; "it's ok really, I've got a good husband, kid(she had another later), bunch of good friends, I still ride(her hubby built her a trike to ride), life is good."

                              What was harder is when he would break down about it sometimes. He always blamed himself, even though it totally was not his fault, they were hit by a drunk.

                              Bikers; we're a stoic bunch until somethings "gets in", then our hearts are on our sleeves.
