Thread for documenting when strangers shout at you in the street (rolling)


#1

Possibly SSP if we use this to talk about cat-calling and harassment.

Yesterday I walked past some work men who whistled The Addams Family theme at me. God knows why.


#2

Fucking mad innit how dicks like this are enabled to the point that they’ll openly do stuff like that when at work. I had a gang of roofers shout a load of abuse at me for no reason. They were working on a particular house and their marked vans were right outside, but no fear of consequences at all.

Think the last time was in winter when someone shouted ‘f****t’ at me because I was wearing running tights.

Weird men GO AWAY


#4

Excluding cunty drivers when I’m cycling obviously.


#5

Had someone shout catch and pretend to throw a ball at me yesterday evening.Then they laughed uproariously. I dunno about that one


#6

I thought this was going to be a fun thread.

A group of teenagers in tracksuits shouted ‘Benjamin Franklin’ towards me in Belfast ten years ago.

We spent a weekend asking people what they knew about BF to try to work out why.


#7

That’s better than abuse… Maybe even mildly amusing. Punk’d.


#8

I got thumped by some old drunk whilst I was using a cash machine yesterday afternoon. Wasn’t very hard but think he was going down the street doing it to everyone judging by the shouting and commotion.


#9

cant remember the last time someone shouted at me but a guy walked past me the other day and looked at me, nodding, and just said ‘yeah’.


#10

Yeah it was pretty innocuous. I wonder if they were doing it to everyone who walked past them


#11

Doesn’t quite fit the brief, but a friend of mine had shit thrown at him out of a car.

I definitely didn’t laugh.


#12

Funnest one I’ve heard was a friend walking to work on a rainy day with an umbrella, jumped over a puddle and some kids across the street shouted ‘singing in the rain cunt’ at him


#13

Human?


#14

Someone shouted ‘TALK TO FRANK’ out of a car window at me recently. Heh.


#15

Dancer.


#16

Pooey spence


#17

Had some girl shout 'purple t-shirt ’ at me from a passing car. I was wearing a purple t-shirt, but just why?


#18

Such a weird thing isn’t it. I wonder if it happens as much in other countries?


#19

We don’t get the opportunity to smash people’s mail boxes from the passenger window with baseball bats though.


#20

This has completely done me.
