To be really shocked at what's just happened

I'm walking with DH, DS 8mo in the pram and I'm pregnant.

Next thing, two kids around 5/6 start shouting:

"Hey fatty, hey bitch... do you suck his penis... "

Followed by so much more stuff, all kinds of disgusting language I never in a million years would assume a child would know

Another lady walking past with a baby in a pram was called a "stupid slag"

I asked where their mother was, it became apparent she was sitting inside of a cafe. After more abuse my DH went into the cafe and asked their mum if they were her children and explained what they'd been saying...

She shouts a man, says "[name] go sort your fking kids out"

Husband shuts door, we go on our way.

Man comes out, shouts my husband accuses him of speaking to his wife like shit, accuses him of slamming door, hes in my husbands face and demanding an apology, the man apologised to me???? And then calls my husband obscenities.

A little google later, he's well known in my area. I can't say much.

I'm in absolute shock, my husband is the furthest from rude and I can't believe what's actually just happened I'm shaking! I thought he was going to attack my husband.

His wife did not seem to be bothered by what my husband told her, she didn't seem offended.

I needed to rant, I'm in shock.

That is shocking

WhenISnappedAndFarted Fri 26-Jun-20 15:47:30

I can probably guess what he's well known for.

That's shocking OP

Social services.

Sorry not helpful, but people are awful. Sorry OP

Alchemila Fri 26-Jun-20 15:48:57

That’s awful. No wonder those poor kids are growing up to be monsters when that’s the example set by their parents. They haven’t got a chance.

I’m so sorry that happened to you OP - I would have found that hugely upsetting. I know it’s not easy but try to put it behind you - it’s nothing to do with you personally, the problem is simply them.

That's so sad really. Not uncommon though is it.

Evenstar Fri 26-Jun-20 15:49:11

I think if you know who he is then you should report him and his wife to social services at least. I think given the language the children were using, then there would be safeguarding concerns, let alone the violence ☹️

Feral family. Disgusting behaviour.

Poor you, and those poor children, given so little chance to learn to behave in a way that won't harm themselves and others.

Toilenstripes Fri 26-Jun-20 15:51:50

There’s a family like that around here that aren’t allowed in pubs anymore, or cafes. They’re absolutely feral.

This. Rather than 'feral'. Poor kids haven't had a chance. And having worked with parents like this, make no mistake, they are suffering worse at home.

octobersky19 Fri 26-Jun-20 15:57:17

Honestly it was so scary, I've never known anything like it. As we were walking along the street away from them we heard him roar at the children.

I can't believe it.

Report it as anti social behaviour. You can do so online or via 101 and asking to get in contact with the PCSO for the area. I imagine they're very well known to the local community policing team.

FudgeBrownie2019 Fri 26-Jun-20 15:59:30

Christ those poor children. What chance do they have of ever doing anything if that's the example they're set?

HogDogKetchup Fri 26-Jun-20 16:00:01

This. Rather than 'feral'. Poor kids haven't had a chance.

Haven’t had a chance and are, as an unfortunate consequence, feral.

Sorry this happened OP. Have you thought of reporting it to the police? Who will probably involve the social services anyway. I’m not sure it’s a social services issue on the face of your complaint, although I’m sure they might require some involvement.

octobersky19 Fri 26-Jun-20 16:00:02

@Evenstar I was saying this to DH but he is incredibly well known for reasons that I can't go into, I would be concerned for our safety

Please report this to social services. Those poor children.

Tianalia Fri 26-Jun-20 16:01:29

I'd contact social services.

LeJollieJauneOiseau Fri 26-Jun-20 16:01:41

I asked where their mother was, it became apparent she was sitting inside of a cafe.

Cafes aren't currently open for sitting in at the moment though?

If you are accusing the poster of lying just say so instead of trying, and failing, to be clever.

The only thing you can do is avoid people of this class. They know no better and are having a high old time being supported by the tax payer.

Evenstar Fri 26-Jun-20 16:09:00

@LeJollieJauneOiseau I can understand you must be reluctant if this person is well known (I presume they are involved in criminal activity) but equally that would probably mean they are less likely to know that it was you who reported them, as it could have been any number of people.

SpillTheTeaa Fri 26-Jun-20 16:09:06

AIBU boards get so bitchy. My gosh.
Tbh what you have written is pretty outing if they happened to stumble upon it.

Evenstar Fri 26-Jun-20 16:09:54

Sorry that was to @octobersky19
