TO wish LEG BREAKAGE upon the ARSEHOLE who SPAT on my windshield.

YES.

There were two empty spaces right outside Tesco. I was driving behind a car and turned right to get to the empty spaces quicker as I was in a rush. The car went the long way and was coming the opposite way from me on the left when I got to the junction, so I drove straight ahead into the space that was closest to me right opposite to me. The car came and parked into the space closest to him. The man began giving me dirty looks from his car, but I couldn't understand why...I wasn't speeding or cut him off. I just took initiative and took a short cut to the space.

Anyway, he got out of his car and was still giving me dirty looks. Then off he went inside the shop.

I spent about 15 mins in there, and came out to find a MASSIVE GLOBULE OF SPIT running down my windshield. No one else would have reason to do this. It was HIM.

The parking was right next to the ATM machines, so I'm thinking it was all caught on CCTV, but is it worth chasing this up? It's just spit and he didn't vandalise the car in any other way, but I'm fucking angry someone would be so fucking childish as to do this. Then I wished his legs would break.

AIBU?

Did you go against the arrows?

Count to 10, and say with me goosfraba...

Yadda yadda, violence is never the answer, blah blah grand scheme of things, yadda yadda let it go. Or something like that.

Fakebook Wed 28-Nov-12 12:13:07

No I didn't. There are two way roads in the car park as it's so big.

Fakebook Wed 28-Nov-12 12:14:22

But the thing is, he went the long way round. Tough tits to him. I took the short cut. There were two spaces. We both got a space in the same place.

shriekingnora Wed 28-Nov-12 12:16:12

Not that going against the arrows would excuse him from behaving so disgustingly.

Spitting is inexcusable. Horrid. A cyclist once spat on me at the traffic lights (I was behind on my bike and she spat without looking and it hit my foot).

Fakebook Wed 28-Nov-12 12:19:09

Yes shriekingnora. It was fucking disgusting. I had to use the windscreen washer three times to wipe off the dried spit. What a fucking ARSEHOLE.

tiddleypompom Wed 28-Nov-12 12:19:48

Ah but you 'won' in his eyes, hence his (revolting) act of retribution. Spray your water, wipers on & think no more about it - or you will have 'lost'. Angry man is not a happy individual. Rise about it smile

Vile arsehole.

BlissfullyIgnorant Wed 28-Nov-12 12:23:40

In direct response to your original question OP, YANBU. He's a dirty filthy pig and he is also the reason why nasty diseases like TB are on the rise. Mucky bastard.
Drive to the car wash immediately and get the car scrubbed off.
Bleugh!

Just got a little bit of sick in my mouth

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 28-Nov-12 12:30:20

That's vile. Spitters should be shot. I'd rather be punched in the face than spat on.

A pox on the dirty bastard.

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Wed 28-Nov-12 12:33:29

it's spit. you have wipers. wash it off. drive home. forget about it.

PhilipLarkinwasright Wed 28-Nov-12 12:43:40

Yuk VILE! Forget it now though or it'll ruin your whole day.

Some horrid turd once used chips to write "FUCK OFF" on my windscreen. I washed it off but every time in rained a greasy ghost of FUCK OFF appeared.

Fakebook Wed 28-Nov-12 12:54:37

Yes I will forget about it, once I've wished a bit harder he breaks his legs.

Philiplarkin, that's shit [anger]

Some people are complete and utter dipshits.

SoleSource England Wed 28-Nov-12 12:56:46

Pursue it! My DS was spat at whilst he was sitting in the car. Spit was all overthe passenger wi.dow. I only went to pay my petrol. I have never forgotten it. If not pulled up about their behaviour their anger could turn to violence.

shriekingnora Wed 28-Nov-12 13:15:27

A teenager spat in DD's face on the way to school last year (she was 7). We did follow it up but didn't get them.

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 28-Nov-12 13:19:07

That's disgusting! Spit running down my windscreen would make me heave.

cuteboots Wed 28-Nov-12 13:30:32

Omg there are some real nasty pikeys out there. Im sat here eating my lunch and it made me feel sick . Vile !!!

lovelyladuree Wed 28-Nov-12 13:39:08

I think I need to learn how to spit. It seems to have the desired effect.

starlightlover Wed 28-Nov-12 13:44:22

YABU. You can't know for sure that it was him. Especially as he had already gone in the shop and you were only 15 minutes quite isn't exactly a huge amount of time.

Just be thankful he didn't take a shit on your bonnet.

Fakebook Wed 28-Nov-12 13:47:42

I am perplexed as to how someone can muster up that much saliva in their mouth and aim it like a bullet on to something. It would take a lot of practise I imagine. The fucking fucking fucker. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks what a vile pig he was... IS.

complexnumber Wed 28-Nov-12 13:50:36

Was it anything like this?

Spitting was disgusting.

Some fucker wrote their NAME on my car. Scratched it into the paint.

Sometimes I have a little fantasy about bludgeoning them, but I am sad inside because I know that I'd pull back, just as the scooter was about to hit them in the face. (I don't own anything else to bludgeon with)

I disappoint myself in bludgeoning fantasies.

You can get someones DNA from spit. Pointless if they don't have a criminal record but if they did you could id then that way. I don't think I'd actually do this in the op situation but I bloody well would if some scrote spat in my Childs face. That gives me the rage just thinking about it angry

Sorry but Pmsl at 'greasy ghost of fuck off' grin

Fake it might be worth checking if there's any CCTV but as it's a violation against a car not a person , you might not get any further.

Last year someone in a car slowed down and the passenger rolled down the window and spat on me, on my leg!
I was carrying an umberella and was soooooooo tempted to lob it at the car, but I was so gobsmacked I didn't even swear. (And there were two of them young males)

Some prick was holding a lit ciggie at the height of my DS face (he was French, I recognised some spoken French)

I told him to Fuck Right Off move his tab from my child's face in French. Very crappy French but he got the idea. And the look on my face was enough.

If someone spat on my DC I 6would^ have to harm them. angry

charlmarascoxo Wed 28-Nov-12 14:36:11

Yabu. You do not know for certain it was this man.

Waste more of your life chasing up CCTV if you really have that much free time.

Otherwise use your wipers, wash it off and then get on with your life.

valiumredhead Wed 28-Nov-12 14:37:58

Blimey, you don't know it was him for sure. Wash it off with the wipers it's not like you have to deal with it directly or hand scrub it off. YABU to wish leg breakage on ANYONE.

I honestly wouldn't give this a second thought apart from a quick 'Ewww'

picketywick Wed 28-Nov-12 14:49:27

TIC Headline is brilliant. Cant stop laughing. But I share your disgust.

shriekingnora Wed 28-Nov-12 16:13:43

I just had to keep telling myself it was someone's child. By the time I understood what she was saying he'd gone but he was wearing his school uniform so we went to the school and they let her look at the pupil photos and pick out who she thought it was but she couldn't be definite enough. They were BRILLIANT at the school and made sure that DD knew that this was unacceptable and they were on her side. The whole thing turned into a surprisingly empowering experience for her and she is perhaps more confident as a result, which is a plus. Wish it hadn't happened though.

charlmarascoxo Wed 28-Nov-12 16:47:37

shriekingnora eh? hmm

Fakebook Wed 28-Nov-12 21:40:07

Bah, I'm over it now. But what a bloody arsehole. I hope someone spits up his arse.

member Wed 28-Nov-12 21:51:28

Yeah it's annoying but whoever it was (and you don't know it was him) spat at an inanimate object, not a person so hoping for broken bones in return is a bit extreme.

I would think an actual crime would have to be committed for anyone to agree to the time & costs involved in reviewing CCTV footage, but even if they did, I doubt the film would clearly show the person to pursue.

Calm down!!

member Wed 28-Nov-12 21:52:20

Oops, sorry, wrote post earlier but didn't "send"

cumfy Wed 28-Nov-12 22:16:01

Entitled twat. Forget about him.

ripsishere Thu 29-Nov-12 01:09:07

YANBU. We live surrounded by students. I hate walking through out car park. There a puddles of spit everywhere.
Dirty dirty dirty cunts.

shriekingnora Thu 29-Nov-12 12:47:44

charlmarascoxo - sorry that was in response to yellowdinosaur re someone spitting in dd's face

MrsWolowitz Thu 29-Nov-12 12:56:06

What a dirty dirty moron.

charls why the hmm face for shrieking? She's talking very sensibly about her daughter being spat at. No need for you to be snippy at her.

BlissfullyIgnorant Sat 01-Dec-12 23:37:30

Anyone who does that should be made to continually proceed in a loop around Leicester Square for 72 hours non stop (no sleep, etc) in a wheelchair with no gloves. That might change their minds about their disgusting behaviour. Ditto anyone who pisses in doorways or shits/changes Tampax in shop changing rooms (yes - that does happen).
There are some proper dirty people out there.

charlmarascoxo Sun 02-Dec-12 01:33:07

Sorry shrieking I must have completely missed the post about someone spitting in dd's face.

So when I read yours it made no sense at all and I thought you'd posted in the wrong thread.

Sorry again.

and MrsWolowitz I wasn't being snappy at all. I was just confused.

healstorturepeople Sun 02-Dec-12 06:19:12

Cuteboots please dont use the word pikey. It's a derogative term for travellers and there is no reason to use it.

To the op - Yuck you poor thing. Spit is gross. I'd be tempted to follow it up but probably wouldn't in the end.

shriekingnora Sun 02-Dec-12 18:26:24

No worries Charl - I guessed that might have been what happened!

SuperTressy Sun 02-Dec-12 20:03:34

Dirty bastard. I used to have a lovely little jewellery shop on our local high street and every morning when I went to open up, some filthy scumbag would have gobbed all over the windows. I have to admit, I wished them a much worse fate than broken legs smile
