    "Anybody can just bring their dog on the bus, claiming it's an assistance dog."

    This was followed quickly by "No, I didn't mean you I know you're really disabled."

    Have also heard:
    "If you'd just spank your child he'd outgrow this 'autism' thing."

    "He's not really disabled, autism is just an excuse for poor parenting."
    Same person as above a year later: "Oh, you're finally getting SSI for him? You should have done that years ago!" (Really? I thought he wasn't 'really' disabled??)

    "You're too young to have COPD, you just don't want to work."

    "You should have quit smoking, then you wouldn't have COPD you have no one but yourself to blame" (I've NEVER smoked in my life.)

    "You're just faking the 'seizures' so you get to spend a couple of days off in the hospital."

    "You're not really having seizures, you're just drug seeking" (WTF??)

    "Madness! Total and complete madness! This never would've happened if the humans hadn't started fighting one another!" Londo Mollari
