Be Nice

I recently started working to support people with learning disabilities. Just one day a week. Yesterday, the person I was working with wanted to go to the pub. Off we went. Now, the person I work with looks noticeable. He doesn’t realise it, of course. To him, he is just ‘me’. And, to me, he is just ‘him’! However, two builders came in to the pub when I was at the bar and decided to take the piss out of him. I called them out on it. One guy responded ‘Sorry, love. I didn’t know he was with you’.

Would that make it alright, then? If he was on his own, would he be ‘fair game’ for having the piss taken out of him?
