media/meme monday - $#*! people say to amputees

  Yes, it's another Josh Sundquist video! It's just too funny not to share. He made this during the "$#*! People Say" video craze, and it's brilliant. The best part is that it features things people have actually said to him. I guess most folks just don't know what to say when they meet someone with a limb difference. I mean, we deal with stares and awkward comments on a daily basis. So why not have a little fun with it? Here are some of the funniest (and weirdest) comments and questions I've gotten:

"Do you sink to one side when you swim?"- random lady at swimming pool

"You're a cyborg! Do you know how many dates you can get at a sci-fi convention?" - my lovely and hilarious friend Liz

"Hey, weren't you wearing that ring on your other hand yesterday?" - my boyfriend Chris (to be fair, he had been running on very little sleep when he said it)

"Do you wear it while you're sleeping?" -random person (in reference to my prosthetic)

"Can I touch it?" - creepy strangers

Here's hoping that you enjoy Josh's video and that no weirdos you meet today invade your personal space!
