Biker and dad named Luc Perreault is a motorcycle-riding, tattoo-sporting, beer-drinking man. Even he agrees on the fact that he looks like he’s the type of guy who would “eat your soul if you stare at me wrong”.
But never be the one to judge a book by its cover.
In July 2013, Luc was test-driving his mom’s motorcycle when he decided to take a quick pause. He pulled into the parking lot of a Tim Horton’s restaurant located in Canada. Because of the fact that Luc seems to stand out in a crowd, he seemed to catch the attention of a curious little girl standing close to her mother.
Instead of being scared by the big, bulky man, this small girl just wanted to say hi. The girl smiled at Luc and said hello.
“Hello,” he responded. It was a short and adorable exchange.
But the girl’s mother grabbed her hand. Luc could hear her say, “We don’t talk to dirty bikers” as the duo hurried off.
Not long after, Luc went on Facebook to pen an open letter to the mother who pre-judged him, and his words immediately went viral…
Biker and dad named Luc Perreault wrote the following open letter on his Facebook profile. It instantly went viral for all the right reasons.
“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 goldfish so she wouldn’t be sad!
Luc is the most amazing example of why you should never, and I literally mean NEVER judge a book by its cover.
