It’s unfortunate that so many people oftentimes judge a book by their looks and appearance. Someones physical appearance doesn’t change who they are on the inside.
Luc Perreault is a motorcycle-riding beer-drinking man.
He was test-driving his mom’s motorcycle when he decided to take a quick break. He pulled into the parking lot of a Tim Horton’s restaurant in Canada. Since Luc tends to stand out in a crowd because of his size and tattoos and overall biker appearance, he caught the attention of a curious little girl standing nearby with her mother.
“Hello,” he said to the little girl.
Before the little girl could say anything back, the girl’s mother grabbed her by the hand but not before Luc hearing her say, “We don’t talk to dirty bikers.”
Later that day, Luc shared his thoughts on Facebook to the mother who pre-judged him:
Here is the full transcript:
“To the family in the red SUV at Tim Horton’s today…
Yes I am a big 280 lbs. 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 tho 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!!!!
This is a perfect example to not judge people by their looks.
