so today i went out, had to go to specsavers appointment, plus i was also switching a big wad of old 20s to new 20s.anyways on way home group of 3 topless prettyboy lads walk past me and as they walk past close one of them jerks at me as if to feign a attack and shouts "BOOO" in my face... like total stranger for no reason.... anyone else get this type of crap when they go out? or is this just me that gets random strangers tryna intimidate me for no reason?anyway, why the feck should a stranger even bother to interact with a random stranger they pass? especially in this way? what if i hit the guy, does he think of this? ofcourse hes probably confident as he had 2 mates with him and i was just me..... tbh if i wasnt carrying a sizable amount of money id have gladly tried to see if they could all live up to their image. as for image my brain always judges everyone as larger than me, but thinking on it perhaps they maybe larger in body but definately not in muscle tone. 1v1 with one of them would be interesting if i didnt have anything to lose on me, and perhaps if it wasnt so hot. i guess its just todays society and crappy upbringing of a entire generation of scum. anyway if anyone wants to know the town that has scum like this in, its wigan. if you want to avoid scum then avoid wigan. id guess all sizable towns are like this though? is it perhaps that we need to bring back smacking kids? ... smack them while they are kids so that they dont need to be smacked harder by a total stranger when they are a adult when they try intimidate that stranger?
That’s just typical “laddish” behaviour. I can’t stand these sorts of people. It’s one of the reasons I never really got pub culture. It’s just full of Freudian penis waving. I have learnt to just expect…
aye, and they only bark when they have their group with them. they never bark alone.

And while you were punching one of them, the others would be pulling a knife and we’d all be remembering what a good guy you were and how you used to contribute…
I'm so sorry to hear you had to deal with this. Kids are horrible. I faced this my entire childhood and teenage years and to this day I'm scared to walk past big groups of youths. My mum always said to me growing up - and now I say this to kids I teach who are going through similar things, and it's something that we need to carry with us throughout life; it doesn't just apply to children and teenagers - sometimes people can tell when you're scared inside or perhaps a little bit different, and so they pick on you because it makes them feel better about themselves, which is wrong and says a lot more about them than it does about you. These just sound like badly brought up, ill-mannered, thick louts, who feel the need to intimidate a stranger in an immature, pathetic way to make their lives feel meaningful in that moment. Pity them, then move on and don't give them another thought (although of course that's much easier said than done).
it was odd for me this time because usually i get anxious at the thought of walking past stranger that may try say anything or interact and would feel a anxious tic coming most times, but i guess this time i was probably more confident or defensive probably because i was carrying stuff i didnt wanna lose maybe and would have maimed them as much as possible to keep hold of my money if they tried anything. or maybe the heat just made me in a not so bothered mood, had walked like maybe 6 miles to that point in the heat and very hot and sweaty by that point.
