This story is the perfect example of the famous saying: “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Luc Perreault got his feelings hurt at a coffee shop in Alberta, Canda because a woman judged him because of how he looks.
Luc is a 280 pound man, covered in tattoos, and also dresses like a biker. He was walking into the coffee shop when a sweet little girl approached him, she said hello to the man. Luc returned the salute right back. That’s when the little girl’s mother came into the picture. She grabbed her daughter without acknowledging Luc, and told her, “we don’t talk to dirty bikers.”
This shocked Luc, so he went on Facebook and expressed exactly how he felt about what had just happened to him.
His post read:
To the family in the red SUV at Tim Horton’s today,
Yes I am a big 280 lb guy with motorcycles and full of tattoos, I am a welder, I am loud, I drink beer, I swear and I look like I would eat your soul if you stare at me wrong.
What you don’t know is that I have been happily married for 11 years, my kids call me daddy, i am a college graduate, my mother is proud of me and tells everyone how lucky she is to have such a wonderful son, my nieces and nephews are always happy to see there m’noncl Luc.
When my daughter broke her arm I cried more than she did. I read books, I help people, I go out of my way to thank war veterans and I even cried at Armageddon…..
So, next time I smile and say hi to your little girl and you grab her and tell her ” No no dear we don’t talk to dirty bikers” remember that even though you hurt my feelings this “dirty biker would be the first person to run into your burning house to save your little girls goldfish so she wouldn’t be sad!!!!
