what would you have done i this situation with a blind perso
    #1931421 - 09/19/03 03:48 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I was at univeristy walking from my class to go home through this big hallway, and there was a blind girl, a student, who was making her way with one of those blind people sticks waving it in front of herself so she doesnt run into anything.

first i think its pretty nuts that she is blind and going to university, it makes me feel bad that i can see and im such a retard. i was thinking i should have just grabbed her arm and took her to her class, not forcefully, but just to be nice and helpful, i am sure it is very stressful and tough to be blind and walk through this maze of hallways and this huge mass of people trying to find a class.

but it would be rude and mabey insulting to just go up and help like that. i think i could just go up and ask her if she needed help, but i am a pussy and dont like making any kind of a scene, i am very shy and a retard

anyway i am just coming down and need to talk abotu that because it was on my mind that whole time. my mom is also a nurse and she said one of her other nurse frieds patients is a girl with cerebral palsy who is also attending the same university.

im going to start helping people for the benefit of humanity. i dont even want to copyright that saying, my whole purpose in life is for the benefit of humanity, if only i wasnt so lazy i would be a really helpful person. at least my thoughts are good, and thats a start

i aslos dont want to ruin anyone elses tripo but i picked up a grateful dead greatest hits cd becuase it was 5 dolaars and i alsways see people talking about eating tabs or mushrooms at dead people concerts and i have to say i dont understand what is so great about there music mabey some one can fill me in

As my biological father is blind and I met some other blind people thereby, I think I?m rather qualified to answer your question. So here?s my advice ...

simply grabbing her arm and lead her anywhere to, would be definately insulting as you already said. You don?t imagine how well blind people get along if they are blind long enough. So most of them don?t really need help for many things that look totally impossible to manage to "untaught" people.
You shouldn?t use this blind girl as an object you can practice your "benefit-attitude" on. Blind people don?t really differ from seeing people, except they?re blind! Ok, there may be some differences that wouldn?t exist if someone wasn?t blind, but in principle they?re the same. So just treat them like that including the fact that they are blind.
So if you want to help her, because it looks like she may need some help, then simply ask "may I help you" like you would ask anyone else. But you have to ask, cause she can?t see your look or smile, remember.
And if she?s pissed off and makes a scene, than piss her back or ask her what?s the trouble or whatever! Being blind doesn?t give anyone more rights to piss someone off or so than anyone else.

To make it a short conclusion. Just treat blind people like "normal" people without forgetting the little differences of their blindness.

Sorry for bad spelling or so, I?m no native speaker. Hope I could help you out!

just keep listening to the cd man....its an aquired taste..the more you listen to it the more you like it...then it becomes an addiction...a good one tho :smile:

but yeah you gotta listen to the words and shit man...try listening to it on acid and you might understand the mesage being conveyed.
