“Handicap” is not Illness, Mary

A reader from Ohio writes…

Are you kidding me? Totally offensive. Why don’t we also discuss our boss that has a physical handicap, not just a mental handicap. I had a boss that went on tirades – and she did not have a mental health disorder. She just did not know how to deal with people. Not a good idea to assume everyone that acts inappropriately has a mental illness.

What do you think? Is she right? Can people who act crazy just be guilty of “not knowing how to deal with people?”
