Okay – before I write this out you need to know I am not making fun of anyone. This is just something that happened at the library and it was rather funny to me considering the circumstances.
There is a section at our library that is along one wall that has all the new books. I went over to browse and there was a gentleman in the middle shelving area, holding what looked to be a cane. On the other side of him was another woman, and so I began looking to the left of this gentleman. The area was big enough for all three of us.
Just as I begin to scan, the gentleman steps to his left and slides himself directly in front of me – between me and the books. He seems oblivious that I am there. I think “what, am I invisible??”. I then look down at the ‘cane’ and it looks like a cane, but a special one. It looked like the “walking stick” type cane a blind person uses. So, for one brief moment I think “Oh, he can’t see me so of course he didn’t know I was there.” But, think about that for a minute. What is wrong with this picture??
If he can’t see me, how in the world is he looking at the books?
