  1. For anyone that is reading this and has a disability…YOU ARE FUCKING PERFECT ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT!!! YOU ARE A GIFT TO THE WORLD!

  2. This kinda made me realize that I kinda have a stammer heh, but I really wanna give that boy a hug for being courageous enough to deal w/ everything that he went through in this video. That was very brave of him

  3. I experienced this from customers and I stutter under pressure. Most of the time I'm okay but when I get nervous or feel pressured to "Hurry Up" it makes the stutter worse. Fortunately I had other customers jump to my defense in the cafe where I work.

  4. I'm sorry I can't help myself to stop laughing whenever I hear him stuttering. Maybe I'm just immature. However with that being said, even though I say I laugh, I would never ridicule and be obnoxious to someone who stutters. I may laugh because I can't control it, but I 100% will respect them.

  5. My daughter stutters. Makes me happy to see so many people standing up for him! Would hope my daughter would be stood up for too if she ever faces nasty people like them

  6. This show has demonstrated to me that, based upon the reaction of the onlookers, most people are inherently good.

  7. Oh, God. Please don't let me be targeted for something like this, because I would have to watch the next episode from jail, 'cuz I'd slap one of these girls.

  8. Me and this dude is on the same boat because i have a stutter too and i was pick all my life because of my speech and this day on i still stutter but i dont care because i have a mental illness

  9. I cannot stand to see people being mistreated like this. It makes me cry. Even though I know this is acting, stuff like this actually happens. I always make sure to be extra polite to anyone helping me. I know how it is to be berated by nasty clients.

  10. People like this make me wish it was acceptable to give a good hard slap for being so damned rude and mean spirited.

  11. I had this a few years ago and I got bullied but know I can speak perfectly fine and the people who bullied want to be my friends i said no but its a serious thing

  12. I know what it’s like to be made fun of for stuttering when I was in school people made fun of my stuttering and then when I went to my first college course a few people and 1 tutor made fun of me when I stuttered but I didn’t care cuz now I’m doing a computing course going to level 3 my first course was vehicle mechanics

  13. this hits me hard. I had a stuttering problem since I was at the age of 3. I still have a stuttering problem. I get bullied for it. and even though i Stutter I still stand up for what's right even though that means that I get more bullied for it at least I know that they have one less person to worry about

  14. I don't think WWYD found a representative sample there as everyone was so supportive and came to the poor guy's defense. I stutter sometimes and it catches me off-guard. I wish I had a perfect recollection of what happens but it is not usually people rushing to help me out. I worked at WM for thirteen years and i had to finally quit when they forced me to be a cashier.

  15. If you cannot pull people up, don't bring them down. At some point in your life you will have an issue and you will need help from the community.

  16. That’s what I’m talking about! People helping those in need!! I love how everyone came together in the last scene to help and stand up for the waiter! 💖

  17. This is so sad. My friend has a stutter and I have overheard people talk about it and saying it is wrong😰😰😭😭😢😪

  18. I’m a stutterer myself. It really is a pity when other’s make fun of someone who stutters. I legit almost cried watching this lmao

  19. If I was a girl I would beat the sh*t out of them and be frinds with him and I have dawned-simdryim so I feel his pain

  20. The old lady was like if you don't get out of here I'll make you! When the girl talks back to her she's like "here hold my beer", lol.

  21. There is fire in the furnace lol best line all video I think she would have given them a 3 piece with the soda on the side madvidal style

  22. My boyfriend has a stutter cause his sever ADHD and he gets so self conscious about it and I get so angry when people do this. Especially when they mock him. I’m gonna end up in jail some day

  23. I have a slight shuddering problem it’s nothing terrible but every now and then it’s hard for me to get a word out and sometimes it will take quite a while to finally say it and it’s a bit embarrassing and some ppl look at me like I’m weird so I definitely felt this episode
