Mom Mocks ‘Dirty Man’ In Store – Then He Reveals How He Got That Way

You should never judge a person by their appearance. Unfortunately, one mom had to learn this the hard way. After mocking a “dirty man” in a store, he revealed his true identity to her, making her regret every word. Now, people are passing his story along to spread this important message.

Andy Ross of Washington state was picking up a few things at the grocery store after work one day when he noticed a little girl staring at him. He had only been in the sore for a minute but knew he was legitimately dirty after his long day. Working in the woods has a way of doing that to you, but Andy wasn’t thinking too much about his appearance when he ran inside to grab a few things.

Then, to his shock and dismay, he heard the little girl’s mother whisper to her. “That is why you need to stay in school,” she said, obviously believing Andy was a failure based simply on the fact that he was dirty. She was about to eat her words as Andy served up a heaping dose of reality.

Taking to Facebook to share the story, Andy explained exactly how he completely blew the woman’s preconceived notions out of the water as he revealed his true identity to this obviously ignorant woman. “So I had a very interesting ‘educational’ conversation with a woman and her daughter today,” Andy began. “As I entered the store before I got home, a little girl kept staring at me. Which is fine. I know that kids are curious when they see someone, especially as dirty as I was,” he explained, cutting the kid some slack.
