This guy’s dirty face served up a life lesson for a woman who belittled him at a store

Wise men once said not to judge a book based on its cover. Yet despite of the ‘popularity’ of the old saying, there are still people out there who easily make an opinion about people based on their appearance. A mother of a young girl was ‘taught’ to never judge a person based on appearances the hard way by a ‘dirty man’ she misjudged.

Andy Ross of Vancouver Washington was in a store when he had experienced what he calls as “educational conversation” with a woman and her daughter in a store last May 22, 2018. Andy noticed how the little girl keeps looking at him. He doesn’t mind as he is used with kids staring at him, especially when he was as dirty as he was during that day!

As the mother and daughter were heading towards the door to leave the store, Andy heard the mother talking to her daughter about the importance of education. “That is why you need to stay in school,” The mother quietly said to the little girl. Andy, who wouldn’t let the encounter pass, decided to educate the mother and her 7 to 8-year-old daughter. The following is how Andy and the mother’s conversation went by:

“First, I happen to be a very educated dirty man. I not only have a high school diploma, I also have a college degree and many medical certifications.” “So assuming that I am uneducated because of my appearance is actually quite ignorant in itself.”“Secondly, if you are telling your daughter to stay in school because I have tattoos up and down my arms, that will actually suppress her creativity and potentially hinder her imagination as she develops.

“Once again, contrary to your point, ma’am.” Forrest Bateman’s tattoos and artwork on my body make me proud. It represents my patriotism and my service as a special operations medic during multiple combat tours.” “Third, if you’re referring to the hat (not shown) I’m wearing because it has an elk on it, you might not understand it.”

I co-own Evergreen State Outdoors and am proud to own an outdoor company that supports my right to hunt and own a gun responsibly. “I finally decided to work in the construction industry.” I am proud to say that I am a part of the construction of America, and I enjoy my job every day.” “When I got out of the service, I tried working a desk job, but it wasn’t for me.”

“I like working with my hands and being outside.” As a result, it comes with being dirty on occasion. I make a good living, have benefits, and can easily provide for my family.” “So my appearance has nothing to do with my intelligence or desire to further my education.” Andy Ross concluded his conversation with the mother by saying, “Have a nice day, and try not to judge people before you know anything about them.”

Good luck with her daughter. ” Indeed, a person’s appearance cannot define him. His life is not defined by his appearance. Instead of passing judgment on someone we don’t know, why not form a friendship? Begin a conversation, ask questions, and get to know one another. We could always benefit from each other’s life experiences. We’d like to hear about it, so please share your experience in the comment box below!)
