Blind or Prejudice? Yesterday, I decided to take the streetcar to work instead of driving. At the end of the day I got back on the streetcar to make my way home. 15 minutes into the ride someone tried to squeeze their van past the streetcar causing a minor scratch to the van.

Apparently, even though there was no damage to streetcar, the driver had to call the police and wait. He advised us to either wait (which could be minutes or hours) or get off and walk to the next streetcar which was about three blocks of walking, so I decided to get off and walk.

I got to the next stop and waited only a few seconds as the next streetcar approached and made my way towards the door only for him to drive right pass me.

Shocked and confused I made my way back to the stop. There was a young lady standing in front of a restaurant beside the stop that had witnessed what happened and came up to me and said, what just happened to you is not cool, that’s racist she said. I was still just too shocked and confused to even know how to react.

I waited and finally got on the next streetcar and asked the driver if she had any information on that streetcar ahead and she advised I call the customer service phone number on my transfer so i did that as soon as I got home.

Customer service person tells me maybe he didn’t see you. I said, I’m a black woman with big curly blondish hair in a purple dress in broad day light at the bus stop, I fear for the safety of the passengers on his car if he didn’t see me…… Blind or Prejudice? I guess only God will ever know.

Have a wonderful weekend!

    The guy is definitely stupid! And dangerously blind, prejudiced or not. I think the there would be a bunch of street cars full of desire lining up and casting bids on which one would get to drive you to your final stop. Love the outfit. Beautiful! I don’t know how anyone streetcar driver could resist stopping for you.

      Oh my thanks Timothy! It was definitely unexpected. I read this comment and it’s like it never even happened. I chose your positive and fulfilling complements over any ignorant and stupid behaviour any day.

        BTW Laurie was in complete agreement with me and couldn’t imagine anyone but a blindman could resist stopping for you.
