Blind girl bathroom issue

My 3 year old is refusing to go out to lunch with me. It hurts to know the reason why she doesn’t want to go, and I don’t know what to do. 

Last week I took her and my 7 year old out for breakfast, to let my very pregnant, wife get some sleep. She’s going to need it in a few days since her due date is the 20th. Anyways I took my 3 & 7 year old out to eat. It’s a bit of bonding with them before their brother gets here. 

My seven year old is blind, and she still has trouble in the bathroom which of course that means daddy has to take her and her younger sister to the bathroom when we’re out eating. When we were out eating last weekend and of course she has to go to the bathroom. I took them to the girls restroom as I felt the boys restroom is a bad idea. 

While my daughter was going to bathroom, a lady walked in and started chewing me out about calling me a pervert, and to follow up the being called a pervert, she insutated that I’m some kind of sexual predator. I couldn’t get in edgewise until the end of her going off on me and telling me to “Shut the f*** up” because she was talking to me. Once I got to say something I told her that my 7 year old is blind and has trouble. She then started bitching about how my daughter shouldn’t need help. While she’s going on her little rampage my 3 year old was looking at me confused and upset.  She left it as if a place can’t accomdate for my daughter then I shouldn’t go.

Because of this nut job I have a 3-year-old that’s afraid to go out to eat because of this crazy lady. Instead today we watched a movie instead. It’s just aggravating that someone could be so aggravating. I would never raise my hand in anger to a woman. But if I saw this lady again, I’d be tempted.

I’m totally cool with people asking questions about my daughter being blind as long as its respectful. The respectful questions are usually in response to why she has sunglasses on, or a question about her service dog Nala. Young kids often want to pet Nala, and ask questions. I’m really cool with that. But people like the crazy lady drives me frickin bonkers.

I’m a recovering anorexic I don’t even mind those questions, in fact, I welcome them. I’ll try to make a journal entry about my whole anorexic journey in a bit if people are curious.  It’s not a problem.

I’m not looking to be a snowflake but people need to use common sense when talking to someone when they have no clue about whats going on. I will go off on someone if they start saying some nasty things about illnesses and things people can’t control. It’s not funny to joke about that kind of stuff. 

One thought on “Blind girl bathroom issue”

  1. It breaks my heart to know that some people are just so ignorant. I’d be tempted to smack that lady. I’m sorry you and your family have to go through this, dude. I hope the best for you and your girls.
