    Teacher Terry described vulnerable as children, the elderly and homeless, but now I see why UL thinks he is vulnerable. Someone picked on him at the airport.

    Was he taller than you? Younger? more muscular? More attractive? Men can find so many reasons to believe a woman should be with them instead if another man.....

    He was sitting at the booth, so I don't know.
    Around my age.
    Not more muscular.
    More attractive? I don't know. I am not the best judge of men's attractiveness.

    But do you think that it is possible it was racially motivated?

    That's why I've given up on a post racial society, there's too much power in grievance, white guilt and privilege.

    Sure it’s possible.

    i’m not The best judge of social relations though, so even if I had been there, I probably wouldn’t be the one to ask.

    i apparently had a “ social interaction” with a woman in a store in which she assessed me, judged me, and regarded me with contempt. Dh was very amused telling me about it later (he was there) and really busted up when I honestly asked “what woman?” She never made it out of my short term memory. I’m not sure she made it into my short term memory. We’d only been out if the store about 5 minutes when he started laughing. I probably wouldn’t even notice if someone hit on him in my presence.

    You are funny CL I would enjoy being around you, someone who doesn't take offense when offense is intended.
    So, what DID occupy your mind when you were in the store, being judged?
