Old man: Let me ask you something. When you see a person in a wheelchair or on crutches, do you feel bad for them?
Teenage boy: Um... I guess, yeah.
Old man: You shouldn't, because they don't feel sorry for you.
Teenage boy: Oh. Thank you.

College girl #1: I mean, if I saw a person seizing in the middle of the street, I probably wouldn't help them.
College girl #2: Yeah, I wouldn't know what to do.
College girl #1: She said that because of her first aid class, she knew to put him in a safety position, but I don't even know what that means! I mean, if a person is having a seizure, I don't think any position is very safe for them...

Spicy Latina: I was in the airport last week and this guy refused to take off his bag. Refused!
Ghetto man: What kinda bag was it? Backpack? Fanny pack?
Spicy Latina: I don't know what you call it. Himostomy? Hermostomy? He was a guy, so I guess its himostomy. Anyway, I don't blame him. I wouldn't want anyone patting down my bag of pee either!
Ghetto man: Mmm-hmm!
