Being ignored

Have you ever felt invisible?
I'm not too sure that you have, but if so not more than once I hope; since it can be devastating.
My situation has occurred on and off for more than twenty years with being treated as if I did not exist, upsetting and scary.
The times most memorable sadly are when I have been in a wheel chair, which continues to this day on and off, being in a wheel chair that is.
Somehow people seem to think that all who end up in one have also lost their minds...well the jury is still out on mine, kidding, I think, but they would only talk to Hubby during those times.
And not even look me in the eyes or face or at all.
Geez, I hate that!
Fortunately, it taught me to be more aware of people who have to use any and all assistive aid devices and to make an effort to speak directly to them.

I do have a theory about people who have a problem with anyone who is called physically challenged or challenged at all is fear.
Okay, go with me here, the fear of there for the grace of G-d goes I, hmm?
Just the same or similar why people fear or ignore homeless people.
Either way one looks at it, it makes me think it can be racked up to ignorance.
Aren't most reasons for being extremely narrow minded caused by that ignorance especially in bigotry as in racism, and against Gay people and anti-Semitism, etc., that proves that hatred is stupidity!
Lack of not wanting to know with understanding.
Educated people are more aware, make that intelligent people even without formal education also.
Thus the Orange Frothy Haired Guy attracting lesser educated people who hate people, anyone who's different from them, he promotes that behavior with what he has spewed.

Getting back to the local level I have recently tried to start a dialogue with a local anchor and he is constantly ignoring me, causing me to be hurt by his lack of being a team player and having interest in his audience.
At this point I don't know if he is just plain rude or something more ominous is taking place here; he is a Georgian from where the KKK is from and I do tell everyone that I am a Jew, nah, it can't be...!
Hopefully I am wrong, he is very young, but also is supposed to be very bright.
Well, not answering me makes me think he isn't, just an opinion, could be his immaturity.
I do have a habit of letting the news anchors know when they make a mistake and they seem to appreciate that I am listening/watching them, the seasoned ones that is, and they correct their mistakes when on air again and thank me for the catch.
He stopped talking to me after I mentioned one of his infrequent ones, mistakes that is, and today he made another saying that it is three weeks till we vote here, but it's only two on the fifteenth of March; he did see my message and did correct the mistake when next on air, but never thanked me for noticing, everyone else does. I correct my own albeit it might take me a few weeks since no one tells me. OH! That is because I told them all years ago not to due to me being too sensitive and not taking criticism well, WHOA a fellow sensitive, Geez, okay now I get it! STUPID ME!

I suppose that me needing to be validated is me being a bit too needy, ya think, but I do have too much time on my hands, truly!

Moving on...

Thanks to Robert Van Winkle, our evening senior meteorologist, for the great week's weather ahead!
Back to norms of fifties during the night and low eighties during the days and sunny too!

If I have notified, I can't teach any of you for you're all most likely smarter than me, but if any of this at all tonight is absorbed worthy is that it is so important to talk to people directly no matter what their circumstances might be and remember to answer messages on instant if you know the people. I know that I have been neglectful of answering ones from people that I don't know at all, but I do not feel as safe as most others are that are dealing with strangers so I have to be careful.


On this another realization of inward understanding of what makes me tick as well as the others in this tiny world, allow me to be the very first to wish all of you a very happy healthy safe good night and ask all of you to kindly count all of your blessings and share all those overages with you know whom and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
