I live in cheltenham and today went to the races with some friends as usual. Had a lovely day went for a meal and a few drinks then went to get a bus.
There was a ten minute wait and so I popped into the chippy to get some chips for me dh.
Group of men in there totally managed to scare and intimidate me.
Would you like a savaloy up your back door you slut etc etc. I was alone I am a 45 yr old mother of five wtf?
I have seriously led a very unsheltered life and although wasn't shocked I am angry to my very core. How feckkng date they?
I gave them a mouthful back but I'm just so angry now.
I'm on the bus and feel like crying.
Why do we have to put up with this bolocks?
I just needed to rant.

yanbu

have you read the sexual advances thread in FWR ?

SoftKittyWarmKitty Thu 14-Mar-13 22:02:28

Fuck me, that's disgusting. God for you for giving them a mouthful back - I'd have been too intimidated, I'm sure. Did the chippy staff not say anything?

I read too much of this kind of 'everyday' abuse on MN. What the fuck is the world coming to? angry

Twats.

sad that's terrible. I wonder how they'd react to their wives and girlfriends being treated like that. Sorry this happened to you.

SoftKittyWarmKitty Thu 14-Mar-13 22:03:07

AF, please could you link to that thread? Sounds interesting.

Ledkr Thu 14-Mar-13 22:03:27

No but I'm so angry AF I don't normally overreact as you know but this was so horrible

Ledkr Thu 14-Mar-13 22:04:37

Chippy staff were girls and said they had it all night. Why am I so upset

Ledkr Thu 14-Mar-13 22:06:16

I asked them if they'd like to discuss it with my dh who would be happy to drive down for a chat and if their mothers were proud of them

cunts.

I'm so sorry you had that experience.

You're so upset because you were abused and intimidated and insulted.

Horrific behaviour from horrible, vile people.

gwenniebee Thu 14-Mar-13 22:10:36

That's hideous sad I can't believe the girls in the chippy put up with it, either - it doesn't help any of us when people just let it happen. (Having said that, I wouldn't have /haven't had the guts to stand up for myself in similar intimidating situations.)

I've no idea why we have criminal legislation against racially offensive language, but no equivalent legislation covering sexually offensive language.

PrincessOfChina Thu 14-Mar-13 22:13:48

Utter twats. I have a work mate who lives in Cheltenham, she's pretty much house bound for the week as she's too nervous to walk on to the next street during race week. It's disgusting that this behaviour goes unreported.

I hope you're ok ledkr, I know you can give as good as you get but that's really not the point here!

GirlWiththeLionHeart Thu 14-Mar-13 22:13:50

Fucking arseholes. Don't let them upset you Ledkr good for you for standing up to them

Gigondas Thu 14-Mar-13 22:16:31

Am so sorry - there is another thread on here by someone who lives in Cheltenham saying how vile it is in race week. Her neighbour has rented her house out to some people who sound very like these blokes.

And agree that it should be an offence as other kinds of insult are.

Ledkr Thu 14-Mar-13 22:43:35

Where is that thread.? Dh is a copper and I'm talking to him now about contacting our mp to look at better policing for next year.

AnyFucker Thu 14-Mar-13 22:46:11

I thought Cheltenham was naice ?

Filofax Thu 14-Mar-13 22:47:24

Vile pigs.

LizzieVereker Thu 14-Mar-13 22:51:34

I am sorry, that sounds awful. thanks

landofsoapandglory Thu 14-Mar-13 22:55:46

It's good to see Cheltenham hasn't changed during race week, then!

YANBU at all, and to think so many people who go to the races think they are a cut above!hmm.

Oh, my god, that is horrible!

I hope you're feeling a bit better now, but that is just disgusting, no-one should have to hear that. I must say thank god you're angry, because as you say, anyone could have heard it including someone who was very fragile. You've got to say to yourself you are an amazing woman, and they are wankers - you are strong and they have proved themselves to be sad little shits.

I don't think you are overreacting at all.

SucksToBeMe Thu 14-Mar-13 23:07:46

hmm How horrible.

Ledkr Thu 14-Mar-13 23:11:55

Thankyou xxx I'm surprised at my anger and am of course now wishing I could have floored them all over the chippy kill bill styleeee.
I have three sons and am 100% confident they would never speak to anyone like that?
I remember asking them if they always spoke to women like that.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Thu 14-Mar-13 23:13:02

YASNBU.

How horrible angry. They are swine.

And yet I hear today about a political party being created to promote the rights of men and boys because they horrid feminists have taken to too far the other way.
