ManCry Debate Of The Week: Would You Fire A Blind Person?

April 7, 2010 at 12:41 pm | Posted in Articles, Fun | 1 Comment

Well Gentlemen it’s that time of the week again. Lets see we have covered midgets and wheelchair users so up next might as well be… the blind. So take it with a pinch of salt please, don’t be offended. Mind you saying that it’s not like any blind people will be reading this so fuck  em! Let’s get started…

ManCry Debate Of The Week  Would You Fire A Blind Person?

Let’s be honest – It doesn’t happen. Not only because it would look very bad in the old “PR” department but for the simple fact that a lot of blind people won’t get the job in the first place. I’ll give anyone £10 right now if they can tell me they know a blind person who’s employed as a (similar to a midget in fact):

1. Bodyguard

2. Window Cleaner

3. Data Entry Clerk

Now I’m sure there are some blind people employed in the white-collar industry. There must be. Now a days with modern technology the work computer can speak out what’s on the screen and direct blind people. This enables them to almost live a normal life and carry out work perhaps even more efficiently than some of the useless normal sighted lazy bastards I know. Quite amazing if you think about it really. However, as with the wheel chair users, there are some sentences you would just have to completely avoid using, just to be on the safe side. For example:

“I see your point.”

“I don’t think you’re seeing the bigger picture”

“I don’t know how you didn’t see that one coming!”

“Did you see the game last night?”

“What can you see yourself doing in 10 years?”

“Do you mind if I put your desk lamp on, I can’t see a thing?”

“Honestly mate, it was unmissable!”

“Did you see the look on his face!”

“Have you seen Avatar yet ? It’s got amazing 3D effects!”

Those are only the examples off the top of my head, there literally must be thousands. I suppose thinking about it, if you were blind, you would want to be treated normally like the rest of us. The problem is if they were to be treated “normally” like us, then they have to accept the jokes, puns and comments like we all do. I just don’t think they can keep up with it. It’s not their fault of course, even a simple ice breaker like “Did you see Lost last night?” gets you in trouble.

So, if your blind and lucky enough to get a job in the first place, the chances of you loosing it are virtually none. Anyway, in the unlikely event that you do lose your job – You’ll never see it coming anyway.

No further questions your honour…….

Until the next debate. Enjoy the week.
