Boat People Scum
 
Went ashore the other day to go to grocery store. Had on clean shirt, shorts, and sandals. We had our backpack and rolly cart along with a small bag of trash to toss in the trash can at the store. As I was putting the bag of trash in the can this older woman came out of the store and gave us a look of "I hate you homeless boat people scum!"

I'm trying to figure out how she could tell.

Most non boaters don't take their trash with them to the grocery store.

True, but now that you mention it, why not? Most of the by-products comes from there....

Maybe because you were happy, smiling, relaxed and going about your day (boating can do that to a person). What she said reflects more on her than it does you. Maybe she was having a terrible day, got bad news, etc. Maybe under different circumstances she could even be pleasant. I was going to call her a miserable old hag but I don't have enough info to come to that judgement right away.

She's already consumed more of your energy than she deserves.

True, they throw it out the car window. I know because we were picking it up as we walked.

Wow talk about projection, so many assumptions.

Maybe she suffered traumatic abuse in her childhood from someone who looked like you.

Maybe she had a spasm of pain from her terminal disease and wasn't even really looking at you.

And even if your telepathy was accurate, so what, really worth posting about?
