People tend to forget or ignore the fact that appearance don't actually matter, they don't. For example, when we see someone with a harsh look ignoring everyone, we may think that he's arrogant, but we can never know until we get to know that person. We can never assume things about people without knowing them, that's true but still people don't take time to think about this.
Bikers too, most of them have a fearsome reputation, because they look tough, ride bikes, have beards and tattoes and wear leather clothes. But, until you get to know them properly, there really is no reason to call someone a "dirty biker".
Luc Perreault was test driving his mom's motorcycle when he needed some refreshments. So, he pulled into a local Tim Horton's restaurant in Canada. While queueing, he caught the eye of a small girl. Luc is a biker and an imposing figure, so he stands out in a crowd.
The little girl said hi, and Luc smiled and said hello back. But, the girl's mom noticed, and what she said shocked him to his core.
"We don't talk to dirty bikers"
That's what the girl's mom said. She then grabbed her by the hand and hurried her out of the store. That hurt Luc. But he penned a Facebook status to show his true self.
"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 …
"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 though you hurt my feelings, this 'dirty biker' would be the first person to run into your burning house to save your little girl's goldfish so she wouldn't be sad!”
It's proof that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover! We hope she apologises for the hurt feelings she caused.
