TW: Ableist Abuse

Just got glared at while putting on lipstick in public & was reminded of an incident from a while back. I'm waiting for meds to kick in before I can move, so I figure, why not share?


I was sitting in the food court at my local mall, having just finished eating & was putting on my favourite then-new lip tint. It's the one in the pic (highly recommend! 😁). A woman walked up to my table & asked if I was done with it, cuz she wanted to sit there.
She kept frowning at my cane & looking at it while talking to me, arms crossed.

Me: "Not yet. I'll be here about another 20min."

Her: *Tuts & sighs, rolling her eyes*...*goes to walk away, then turns back to face me* "You know, you're not supposed to have that."
