Pointing and laughing at people with down syndrome

I was driving down Ocean Street, Narrabeen. It was Sunday evening and the sun was setting. It was lovely. Lovely for a walk.

I was dropping a friend off. We were talking and stuff. Then I saw a guy with a funny walking style.

"Look at the way that guys walks," I said.

"He waddles," I said.

"Ha," I pointed.

My friend said nothing. We got closer. The silence in the car became more silenty.

"Oh no," I said.

"Oh frik," I said

We got close enough to get a good look at him. He had down syndrome. I had pointed at and made fun of a man with down syndrome.

"Oh you are the worst human ever," said my friend. No stars.
