Man Confesses About Lying To His Blind Neighbor That He Moved Away To Another City Just So He Could Stop Giving Him Free Rides

by Sophia

Let's settle this first and foremost: the world will always be unfair, one way or another, at some point in our life. It's full of humans, both kind and unkind, cunning and generous, malicious and good natured, and just about all kinds of personalities you can ever think of.

About 15% of the world population, or approximately one billion people have some form of disability, and they are not exempted from the unkindness of the world as much as they would like to be. While it's ethical to help these people out and help them live their life as normally as possible, sometimes they can also be assholes and deserve the short end of the stick.

A perfect example of this story of a certain Reddit user with the handle u/RoanokeVirginia which was posted on the subreddit r/confession. It involves him lying to a blind man just to strip off his free-ride privilege because it seems like he was abusing this man's kindness as time went by.

To start it off, he began to offer his blind neighbor free rides by giving him his phone number after a rude encounter with a taxi driver. He then regretted his decision, because as much as he would like to help, the calls never stopped and it reached a point where the blind neighbor wanted to have free rides every day, including spontaneous stops for himself.

Check out the thread below and see what people have to say!

5. Oh the rowdy plot twists...but what if it's true? For a blind man, why does he need so much stops in a single ride anyway?

While it is indeed a cruel thing to take advantage of some people's disability, it's even more annoying to know that they also take advantage of their own disability just to have some privilege with some things. Like some of the comments said, having a disability does not equate to being excused from their asshole behavior.
