We've all had our share of misunderstandings, but this one takes the cake! Our protagonist (24M) had to have his right leg amputated due to a health condition. Before this, he used to go running with his friend Joe (25M). However, after trying to run with a prosthetic leg, he realized it was too uncomfortable and gave it up. Enter Lucy (24F), who recently started running with Joe. When she found out our protagonist wasn't joining them, she accused Joe of ableism, and things got heated! 😱 Let's dive into this dramatic story.

A Misunderstanding Escalates - But Who's at Fault? 🎭

In a tale of friendship, running, and accusations of ableism, our one-legged protagonist finds himself in a heated argument with Lucy, who accuses Joe of discriminating against him. Despite trying to explain that running with a prosthetic leg is too uncomfortable, Lucy refuses to back down, leading to an explosive confrontation. With Lucy accusing both our protagonist and Joe of being in the wrong, we're left to wonder: who's really at fault here? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿
