Why I am falsely assumed to be "alcoholic"

Twice now I have been given a demeaning look and assumed to be alcoholic. I am not. But now I realize why. I am an old hag. I am unemployed. I do not drive. I do not own a car. I am US citizen.

People in USA are assumed to be rich and spoiled to the extent that we all own cars. We are assumed to all drive. We are all assumed to want that Big American Dream car.

What if we don’t? Unheard of!

I gave up driving ages ago. By choice. I suppose people are so shallow they assume I had a DUI. Damn idiots.

Feedback and comments welcome!
