An awkward public encounter

This week is a strange one. I’ve never had a stranger out in public comment about my Tourette’s in my life and then suddenly it happens twice in one week. Craziness. I was getting food and did a facial tic and the server asked me “What was that?” I hadn’t even realized I did a facial tic so I said, “Sorry, what?”

He then said, “That thing you did with your face.” So I told him I had a medical condition. He responded with “Oh, I thought you were upset with me”. I assured him that I wasn’t upset with him and I had tics which were involuntary. I guess he felt kind of awkward and didn’t know what to say next so he said, “Do you cuss people out? Like in me, you, and Irene?” I told him no.

I later looked up the movie and found out it’s not even about Tourette’s. It’s about multiple personality disorder … lol, I just laughed. Definitely an interesting encounter.
