Did i do the right thing?
Walking home from the gym last night walking past the asian takeaway,an asian lad in his 20’s walking towards me,no eye contact as i walk past him he pushes me in the shoulder quite hard,i turn to him thinking it might be someone i know and i just had’nt relised,then he keep saying what you going to do about it over and over in the end i say i going to do nothing and go home i walk off and he does’nt follow.did i do the right thing i wondered later if the takeaway was full of his mates or had a car full of mates around he could of had anything in his pocket he could have pulled on me?just wondering what anyone else would have done?Posted 9 years agowwaswasSubscriber
“what you going to do about it”
I woudl have answered
“I’m going to behave like a grown up”
and walked off.
you did the right thing, even though I expect you got a bit an adrenalin rush and wanted to deck him fairly shortly afterwards. Funny thing the fight or flight reflex.Posted 9 years agowhytetrashMember
He’d probably just had a hard time off racist footie fans…joking fella!
Absolutely the right thing…transit/car/take-away load of mates is a real possibility, reminds me of when I was a student in stoke 3 lads in a transit asked me where a nightclub was…..I explained they acted(I think) thick and asked me to get into the back of the van and show them the way!…I politely declined!
Saying that when a smackhead had a go at me and the mrs recently I squared up to him and shoved him off but I was cornered pretty much and he’d been heckling me for ages so was obvious what was on his mind…..didn’t stop the mrs from blaming me …she said I should have walked away…women eh?Posted 9 years ago
shreck you did the right thing. At the moment you are questioning your own ‘manhood’? Don’t. It wasnt a matter of honour. Walking away from a mugging or someone in need- that is shameful, thats where you prove your worth. You diffused a situation by walking away from it.
Relevance of him being Asian is its part of the story, its descriptive, descriding the scene.Posted 9 years ago
mr crushrider, just wondered what the relevance to the story actually was? I can can only assume from your use of the term “P C superhero” and “Nob Heads” that you a thwarted bigot of some description?
That may sound like me being a “nob head”, but at least I can spell knob correctly. which I believe makes me sound less like one than somebody who cannot:)Posted 9 years ago
