To ask if you really say fuck off to people?

I often read threads where people have had some stranger interfering, commenting on posters behaviours, actions etc. (You know the type of thread, strangers commenting on your shopping trolley, looks, weight, baby etc. etc.) And plenty of posters add to thread "just tell them to fuck off!" "Tell them to do one!" etc.

But do you actually say this in rl? What happens? Or is it what you were thinking but didn't actually do? I hardly ever confront, partly to keep my dignity, partly because I'd probably go overboard once started!

But I know some people say people should be more assertive.

No. Never. I often feel like saying it but I use other words to voice my feelings.

I have once. To an acquaintance who was being very rude about me, right in front of me.
It really depends, just comments I would usually shrug off and ignore them, or look at them with a hmm face and a loud "Excuse me?!"
If someone was being incredibly rude though I wouldn't be afraid to tell them to fuck off.
I'm generally quite sweary though and can be brash if I'm in a bad mood! grin

I have but only in very extreme cases. Really nasty street harassment once.

I tend to laugh at people when they're arseholes.

Never said it in real life to a stranger. Have said it in anger to DH a few times.

Yes, I've said fuck off on a few occasions when "I don't want to", or "that won't work", haven't sufficed.

It doesn't have to be said aggressively, a half laugh while saying ''fuck off... are you being serious?'' has worked too.

Never at work though grin

I tell people to fuck off all the time grin
Though usually people I know!!

I have, many times. I live in Dublin though, and maybe it's different here, but it's very commonly heard.

Mentally....many many times....

IRL... No sad except if I'm in the car

NoYouDontKnowItAll Thu 27-Apr-17 15:30:55

Yes many times and am not especially proud of it but I've got evil neighbours who don't understand anything else

I could say it to others on occasion as well (like people who push in queues and things like that) but I don't want to cause a scene or get asked to leave if it's somewhere I need to go often

Justmuddlingalong Thu 27-Apr-17 15:32:25

No. But I'm going to start.grin

I have, but prefer 'Get to fuck!' or 'Go to fuck!'

JustAKitten Thu 27-Apr-17 15:34:55

I have.

One recent time was at a pub with DP. I arrived before him and a man sat at the table. I ignored him and when DP arrived, he said "...can I sit with my girlfriend?" The man retorted "yes, sit down." We told him we were having a night together and there were plenty of other tables, he then insisted he wasn't moving. We asked him politely a few more times to move and he started swearing at DP and told me I'm a woman and so shouldn't be speaking hmm

I told him to, as the title says, fuck off.

Highly unpleasant bloke stuck his hand up my dress outside dominos hmm ... I was supposedly in the wrong for swearing at him and he was just trying to be friendly.

It was quite a deserved fuck off I think grin

Depends how angry I am lol. Driving is usually the cause, and I shamefully tell people to 'fuck off' quite frequently.

floraeasy Thu 27-Apr-17 15:42:51

Never (just in my head).

I wouldn't dignify arseholeness with my time and mental energy TBH.

Behaviour breeds behaviour. Plus, you don't know if the other person could be mentally unbalanced.

With all the social media these days, I don't want recorded on someone's iPhone having a tantrum for the amusement of the Daily Mail readership, for instance.

I just don't see the point.

Did I get earlier in the week when someone told me I couldn't park somewhere on a public street after I had to move their traffic cone.
As to what happens nothing really. I put my headphones in and just walked away.
But like above I'm in Dublin

BeyondUser24601 Thu 27-Apr-17 15:44:02

I do find that saying it all the time for less serious things means that when I am angry I can't think of words bad enough to get across how angry I am! grin

TimeforANewTwatName Thu 27-Apr-17 15:44:32

Yes I have.

Maudlinmaud Thu 27-Apr-17 15:45:58

expat that saying reminds me of the Mary Queen of Scots sketch on psycho bitches. It's so funny grin

expatinscotland Thu 27-Apr-17 15:47:14

It's even funnier to hear people in the street, 'You go to fuck!' 'You get to fuck!'

WankingMonkey Thu 27-Apr-17 15:47:18

I have done before yes. I have also called someone a cunt to their face blush

I don't do it often though, only when its fully deserved. And I tend to favour piss off than fuck off

ZilphasHatpin Thu 27-Apr-17 15:48:03

I have done to my neighbour. He is a bullying bastard. He really needs to fuck off permanently. He was already in full bully mode so it had no effect on him. He just carried on.

I said that to same neighbours wife! grin
