What would you do in a situation like this?
I have to admit I am not used to what I’d term ‘hooligans’.
Let me explain. I come from a country that’s very committed to their youth in various ways and admittedly most are private school educated.
Educations is high on the list of priorities as is sports. The younger generation is very respectful actually. I know I am generalizing, but this is what I am used to.
I’m in the UK now and to be honest shocked at how some youths can behave at times. The other day I was walking along and behind me there were youngsters spitting, swearing and kicking the bus stop shelter and had an air of aggro about them.
A few days before that, I was at IKEA and a bunch of youths were screaming obscenities and kicking over trollies. It happens a lot here. I am shocked, to be honest. Do you have to deal with this most times you go out? What do you say to such people? It’s so bad that my partner will cross a road if he sees a bunch of youths together because they could for e.g. start shouting abuse as they often do. (They are normally in groups).
It seems to be trendy to be an ass! Do you have these types of issues where you live? If you do, does it upset you? Do you travel mostly by car and so, therefore, avoid this type of thing? I have to travel by foot which is difficult. I find it quite disturbing, to be honest and could do with some input.
