OMG:
To the person who struggled with her stroller going up the stairs at Bomber, we were not laughing at you. We were going to help you but then you came up to us, yelled at us for laughing at you and not helping, and then walked away. I was afriad to approach you and now you made it even harder for me now. You are the reason sometimes people consider not acting on random acts of kindness. You judge people way to early from something they did not intend. Just because you are handicapped, it does not give you to right to judge everyone who does not help you. We didn't notice, it was not ignorance or neglect, it was a matter that we did not notice. It is hard to go through life with a disadvantage, but that does not give you the right to ruin people's days for not doing something. You derserve everything that happened to you and I hope you suffer for everything that will happen to you. You also make it hard for people to help those who are less fortunate. I hope you realize that you don't just represent yourself, you represent a group of people.

    Wtf op just wtf... Change your mindset because you sound like a really fucked up person
    Like "an eye for an eye" kind of person which the world doesn't need.
    If something like this did happen again instead of trying to find ways to make the other person seem evil instead just look back upon yourself and think "man next time if I get the chance I should help a person who is disabled" or like you said if you really didn't notice think "man maybe that person was having a bad day...oh well everyone has their off day once in a while"
    Stop being so bitter it will make living much easier

  2. This is so messed up. You are openly admitting to discrimination on some level because of this one person's actions. You also contradict yourself by claiming you were going to help, but then saying you didn't notice. Clearly if this person was able to go over and yell at you, the time to help was long gone. Might have been a simple misunderstanding on their part, but this victim-blaming is ridiculous. Don't try and make excuses for not helping someone in need. And the fact that it "ruined" your day.... please.

  4. OP, you're a monster. Do you not realize this? Did you expect people to sympathize with you?

  5. OP, I supported you until I read your last two sentences -- being treated poorly by this person doesn't make it right for you to go down to their level.

    1. ^ Thank God, someone who isn't a self-righteous D-Bag like the others commenting here. The last part about hoping for their suffering was not cool and I don't particularly agree with the rationale of a person always representing the groups they're part of, but otherwise OP isn't wrong.

      To the other commenters: People who feel others need to help them and tell people off for not doing so are just as bad as those who look at specific groups of people with only pity. Minorities don't want your pity - they want your respect, and telling off a random guy on the Internet (ironically, using at least as stigmatising language as the op) who chooses to point out one who displayed an instance of riding their minority status does not help.

    2. @ 5.a Thank God at least those self-righteous D-Bags won't like act and think like OP when a situation like this happen to them.

    3. It sounds like OP you and your group was laughing at a person in person. Enough so the person heard it and called you all out on it. This is not okay, even without the person being disabled. Shame on you and the participants in your group. Your moral blindness is highlighted by you then getting upset that the person stood up to you all. Next time pick on a group your own size you cowards.

    4. My read is that A. Everyone other than 5 and 5.A in this thread is interpreting it wrong and B. OP only went out of line in the last couple lines which were ridiculously over the top.

      To me it sounds like OP and their group were laughing and having a good time- unrelated to the person on the stairs. This person then had an attack of persecution complex assumed that they were laughing about her and went over and publicly humiliated them.
      As someone that has dealt with social anxiety -albeit in a small way- the question of "too help or not to help" is not trivial if you have any concept of human empathy. People are fickle creatures with a whole range of reactions to unsolicited help, from those who feel entitled to it, those who genuinely appreciate it, and those who find it an insult to their pride and independence.

      Maybe I'm wrong, but I really don't think so- so all you pillars of moral greatness can take your PC hivemind lynching and fuck off. OP's only fault was the petty cruelty of the last three lines and a general lack of social maturity.

    7. 5f, I'll try: first line 5e is ironically trying to say that 5d and 5a are the same poster. As in "5d" isn't "5a".
      Second line: i give up. I was guessing at 5e inventing a new type of insult but erased it as being too farfetched and generous.
      My vote's 5e was drunk.

  7. OP you are a fucking entitled piece of scum, just the fact that you see yourself as the victim makes me realize what piece of shit you are. Don't come looking for sympathy when it is clear you are a waste of sperm. Grow the fuck up.

    1. You say this even knowing that almost every trust fund kid at this university is from a foreign country?

      What an idiot.

    2. lol at 8.a

      white ppl are legit so god damn sensitive. look at the spew of racist posts on this website. tons of anti-asian, anti-immigrant posts. the one comment within a post about the privledge that white people experience, and you get super butt hurt.

      you have your ass so far up your head its ridiculous.

    3. 8b I have no idea what race OP is or their friends, or the stroller person. It doesn't matter. What they did was wrong regardless of their identity. Who you are doesn't make what you do right or wrong or excuse it.

      I don't really get your point. What, you want the racist posts called out more? Have you been? Or do you want us to not complain about anything?

      How do you know the race of anyone who's posted here?

      Delete
    4. 8b) We, alongside a host of other western nations, graciously open our arms to the world in ways that nowhere else comes close to paralleling.

      I think you are projecting or something. The fact is, the "kids" driving around in beamers and mercs and mazeratis are not the Pauls from Essex. They're primarily international students from China and Dubai.

      It is not butt-hurt to point out that someone randomly suggesting that this odious OP is a white trust-finder isn't statistically likely to be correct.

      Anti-immigration is another issue entirely. We don't have a say in our country's immigration policy. That rankles a lot of people in Canada. The fact that one can purchase Canadian citizenship is disgusting. No american would ever think that was right in any way, but Canada does it willy-nilly.

    5. 8d you sound more jealous than gracious. I like multiculturalism. I like immigration. I like aboriginal rights. I don't know who you mean by "we don't have a say", or which people it rankles. Or "no american". Do you mean legitimate Americans? Is it wrong that foreign students have nice cars? Isn't that the american dream?

    6. @8.e. Not 8.d here, but I feel that I can answer your questions.

      We don't have a say in immigration like some countries (E.g. Switzerland) where each person in a certain geographical devision, like a county or something similar, has a say in who they let immigrate.

      One of our major issues is "immigrant investors." The main idea is that if a wealthy foreigner invests in Canada (i.e. hands as a bunch of money) than they can obtain citizenship that much faster because they are (Theoretically) creating jobs. What often happens instead is that Daddy hands a bunch of money to the Canadian govmt, buys their wife and kid a place in Canada but stays in their home country and does not contribute to our economy. This is why we've now got insanely inflated housing prices in Vancouver and Toronto.

      I'm not sure what they're referring to when they say American's would not allow citizenship to be purchased, as they have very similar legislation regarding immigrant investors.

      I wouldn't say the American Dream is to have a bunch of rich kids crashing their Daddy's cars. The idea is that it is a land of equal opportunity for someone to make it if they work hard.

      There may be an aspect of jealousy, but the greater issue is an overload of rich brats who don't know how to behave in Canadian society.

      Canadians are generally very welcoming to immigrants because we (or our ancestors) were all immigrants at some point (not including Aboriginals), and we have an appreciation for those who work hard to get where they are.

    7. 8d, money talks everywhere and to imply that's not true in the States is laughable. Quoting a US immigration preference category "5. Persons who will invest $500,000 to $1 million in a job-creating enterprise that employs at least 10 full time U.S. workers." Wasn't that your beef with Canada? And you do have a say, with your vote on federal government.

      8f, your choice of Switzerland's not exemplary as its xenophobia towards non-whites has been a source of increasing concern.

      How did driving become crashing? Stereotype much? Keep it real and fair.

      You say lack of hard work is why rich immigrants' kids in particular don't meet your principled standard yet a 2006 Decima Research study "estimated that Canadian baby boomers will inherit $1 trillion worth of assets over the next generation, the single largest intergenerational transfer of wealth in history ... as people become more dependent on their parents' wealth and less on merit for their success."

      8d, yes immigrants' names sound different from Paul, and they're not from down the road.

      Privilege isn't a crime nor its lack an excuse. No one has a monopoly on how to behave in Canada. My sense is this argument on OMG tends to be racism at times thinly veiled in rationalizations and euphemisms.

  9. Perhaps if OP lived a day in this person's shoes they would mature a little more. Nothing like judging a person then trying to rally others to your own cause to try to make yourself feel like you did the right thing.

  11. OP I so wish you and your friends will try that on me. You were around the Bomber. Do you think the person with the stroller could give a good description of you all? If I see her I'll ask.

  12. "You also make it hard for people to help those who are less fortunate. I hope you realize that you don't just represent yourself, you represent a group of people."

    ...the fuck? This is the reason why Eng/Math kids at this school need sociology classes...

    If one person is rude to you, it doesn't mean you get to take that out on an arbitrarily defined demographic of people. You could have stepped up and been the better person and helped her anyways, despite the fact that she laughed at you and just let her walk away with a bit of embarrassment, but you had to be a petty brat and not help her just to spite her.

    It isn't her who's wrong with the world, it's you OP.

    1. These are adults, it's a little late to teach someone how to be human, at this point. People go to post-secondary to specialise, unless they are rich or can't figure out something better to do with their lives.
