I was picking up a few items to make my grandma some pumpkin cookies and I was just walking through the store trying to figure out which aisle things were in and there was an elderly lady who was using a cane who was hardly over five feet tall, going around shopping, I was turning to go into the candy section to get some chocolate chips and I heard this man, who is much taller then me, I’d say around 6’4-5? (I’m 6 foot) tell this lady to get out of his way and move, and I look over to see her trying to move out of this man’s way, though it was obviously hard with her purse and cart and cane all at once.
Before she had a CHANCE to move this man PUSHED her into another aisle, where she fell over and hit the shelves, then he just walked away like nothing happened. I went over to her and helped her up and found her a bench she could sit on, she hit her head pretty badly and was obviously in pain, so I asked her if I could take her list and go get the items she needed. She gave it to me then I did, then I helped her check out and took her to her car. I was really worried about her driving though, not because she was older but due to her hitting her head so she called her son and he came and picked her up, I waited with her.
Once she was safe and left, she said thank you and all that, she called me miss but that didn’t matter, I’m not on T yet, I don’t look like a man, but you know I didn’t go off on her. I didn’t go off at the store manager when he called me miss when I reported what the guy looked like to him.
Sometimes you don’t need to correct people, sometimes things are more important then your pronouns or gender, I’m never going to see these people again, and I was far more concerned with the safety of this lady then I was my fucking ‘preferred pronouns”
and to think, people on this site would go off on this lady who just hurt herself, and would call her cis scum just because she used the wrong pronouns. Seriously if you would do that, you disgust me almost the same as the guy who pushed that lady down.
