Have you ever called a stranger out in public?


#1

My mate was telling me how in London the other week he saw a business man knock over an older lady running for his tube. I’m well mild mannered (scared of getting lamped) but if I saw that I think I would try flag the guy down and say something

have you ever done this


#2

Only on Facebook.

Occasionally yelled at passing cars being shitty, but nothing that would result in an actual confrontation.


#3

yelled at a cyclist to get off the pavement after they nearly ran me over.

Was quite fun to experience a brief moment of pure rage.


#4

Yeah, some post brexit train racist


#5

Loads of times. Mainly for littering, pushing people at tube/train stations, abusing beggars, giving out racist abuse.

Told off a couple of teenagers last night for letting off fireworks in the street when there were small kids walking about trick or treating.

Bloke was racially abusing a bus driver on the night bus to chorlton at piccadilly bus station. My missus ran over to him and started shouting at him to stop, bloke threatened my missus and i dragged him off the bus and twatted him.

Bus driver said thanks, other passengers were silent bus was full


#9

Yes.

It did not end well for me so I generally don’t do it any more.


#10

Yeah for littering mainly.

As I don’t live in London I don’t really see that many terrible things.


#11

A few times. Called a woman a snide prick for mispronouncing ciabatta in Starbucks yesterday.


#12

Loads of awful drivers beeping me on my bike. Latest one was on Saturday as I was going into Brighton. The incident happened in full view of a police car.


#13

Occasionally, depending on confidence levels. Usually if someone is littering or has jumped the queue etc.

Watched this episode of the Sopranos last night:


#14

I’ve never had that kind of reaction at all. Must be because I look like I can take care of myself.


#15

Glared at some guys who were harassing people at the train station, got fully beaten up for my trouble. Another time some pub racist asked me what I was looking at and I replied ‘some p***k’ it started an almost bar room brawl situation. So I am a bit wary of saying stuff nowadays


#16

[quote=“WizardLizard, post:13, topic:8011”] or has jumped the queue etc.

Will always call out queue jumping get irate and swear.

Jump queues myself like but that’s not the point


#17

No but I’ve called the police before when I saw doings a transpiring


#18


#19

I read that as “Some punk” at first and thought that was pretty damn cool of you.


#20

See when you say jump queues, like are you just joining friends that are already lining up or are you just cutting in?


#21

Just reminded me of the bit at the pool table in dead man’s shoes
