Biker and father Luc Perreault was test driving his mother’s motorcycle when he pulled into a Tim Horton’s for a break. While there, a little girl smiled and said “hello” to him, and he replied with a “hi” of his own. But the girl’s mother snatched the little girl away and told her “we don’t talk to dirty bikers” before walking off with the kid.
Upset by the incident, Luc took to Facebook in response. His post really resonated with people and it was liked by over 5 million people on his page alone. His message to not judge someone based solely on their appearance really resonated!
Here’s what he wrote:
“To the family in the red SUV at Tim Horton’s today,
Yes I am a big 280 lbs guy with motorcycles and full of tattoos, I am a welder, I am loud, I drink beer, I swear and I look like I would eat your soul if you stare at me wrong.
What you don’t know is that I have been happily married for 11 years, my kids call me daddy, I am a college graduate, my mother is proud of me and tells everyone how lucky she is to have such a wonderful son, my nieces and nephews are always happy to see there m’noncl Luc, when my daughter broke her arm I cried more than she did. I read books, I help people, I go out of my way to thank war veterans and I even cried at Armageddon…
So next time I smile and say hi to your little girl and you grab her and tell her “No no dear we don’t talk to dirty bikers” remember that even tho you hurt my feelings this “dirty biker would be the first person to run into your burning house to save your little girls gold fish so she wouldn’t be sad!!!! – L.P.”
What an important reminder to not “judge a book by its cover”. Share this story with your family and friends!
