That's a very good point. Some of you are ni cer than
I would be, but also, I can see that I could get into
trouble. In Pratik's example, I might hve been tempted
to mke a smart remark, or try to, but then I might
have gotten into a fight.

Well, maybe, actually faced with situations such as
you all describe, maybe I would bite my tongue--it's
easy for me sitting here at my computer to be bold and
equally rude, but faced with a real situation I
probably would ignore it.

I did once ask a person in a wheelchair, who was a
paraplegic, if there was pain, but I had been talking
to him for quite some time and noticed that he would
adjust his position from time to time. I had assumed
that people who were paralysed had no feeling in the
paralysed parts, but evidently that's not true in
every case.
