So, this is an embarrassing story as a result of my lack of common sense.
About 3 years ago, I was with a group of people walking down a street, we were just by the local marina looking at the sunset and were heading home. Now, I am very friendly, to everyone. Including random strangers. We were by a stop sign, and I saw a man with a cane and black glasses on. My first thought was to wave, and then a moment later he was walking by us, and said, OUT LOUD "Why did you wave at me? I'm completely blind.
My dumbass was embarrassed, and I said "Oh, I'm so sorry," and the people I was with said to me " Wendi, that man was BLIND", in total seriousness. It took way too long for any of us, especially me, to determine that that was fishy, and that if anyone was in the wrong there, it certainly was NOT me...
I swear, there needs to be a clinic somewhere that specializes in helping people gain common sense.
