Oh When You're Rocking And Rolling, Can Hear Your Mama Call

A man spat at me on my way home from work yesterday afternoon.

I was sitting in traffic on Bolton St. listening to the radio. I had my window down, my handbrake on and my eyes on the traffic lights up ahead. I wasn't minding the van that pulled up alongside me. On the radio, Enda Kenny was accusing Joe Higgins of being a supporter of Osama bin Laden’s, then recanting mealy-mouthedly and reassuring the Dáil that Higgins is "a good Christian man". My knuckles whitened on the steering wheel listening to him but I said nothing, I just sat and waited for the lights to change. I heard the passenger in the van alongside me hock up a load of phlegm, just as the cars at the top of the queue started to inch forwards. There was a wet, sticky thud as the gollyer he spat splattered on my door, just below the open window. "Ah fuck it" he said "I missed the cunt" and he brayed laughing. I glanced across, already easing my foot off the clutch and heading for the green light on Church Street's corner. He looked my age; broad, blond, good-looking. The kind of fella who wouldn't look twice at me in a nightclub. The kind of fella who still has his mammy make his dinners and buy his jocks and who thinks it's alright to spit out the window of his mate's white van at passing cunts in the afternoon traffic.

I rolled up the window once I'd rounded the corner and drove the rest of the way home feeling bullied and ugly.

Oh what a fucker. Sorry to hear this happened. Horrible, disgusting human being.

You're not ugly, you're beautiful, he's just a prick with no soul. He's going to die lonely and alone because pricks like him always do. I know his type well. Thinks he's God's gift, no compassion, no humanity, the most important thing in the world to him is getting pissed and scoring girls. And then dumping them with a shrug. An empty soulless fucker, who secretly, everyone hates. Nobody likes him. They all think him arrogant, pig-headed, a bit of a dick. But they put up with him, because he's just always there, in the group, but secretly they roll their eyes at him. Really, you should pity him.

If it's any consolation a man once screamed 'Hey Fatso, stop being such a fatso' out the window of a car at me once. So pricks like him are ten a penny.

Hope you're feeling a bit better now.

That's so horrible. May a hoard of murderous piranhas find their way to his crotch by day's end. He'll get his and you're deadly, Rosie.

He is lucky Andrew wasn't there with a hockey stick! Thank God he wouldn't look twice at you in a nightclub, imagine what your self esteem would be like afterwards if he did.

Aaarrggh. First of all, it had nothing to do with what you look like. Dublin (I'm allowed say it, I'm a Dub) is full of inane scummy fuckers. Lots of women I know have come across stuff like this, some absolutely stunning. He just saw an open window and being the talented wit he was decided to have a gob at it. He'd never try it with a man's car, obviously, this is the kind of bloke who has two brain cells and doesn't know how to interact with or respect women.

Second of all, rest easy in the knowledge that there are lovely men (the complete opposite of this wanker), one of whom you are happily married to!

I'd like to apologise sincerely on behalf of my gender. That made me very cross and I'll echo Karen's appraisal. Vile idiot, he'll get his.

Andrew said...

My response would not have involved a hockey stick. More like rusty razor blades, an aerosol and a zippo.

Catherine said...

Ugh. What a miserable sub-cunt. I'd rather like to string him up by his blondy eyelashes.

Between this lad, FMC's latest, and a very sad story on the DSPCA's Facebook page, I have Dublin well and truly sinbinned today.

How disgusting :(

That was nothing to do with you Rosie, the duchebag was just being a douchbag.
Take solace in the fact that while you had to experience that guy for five seconds or so, he has to be in the same room as himself 24/7.

Rosie

life is too short to waste time worrying about scumbags.

Rosie said...

thank you, nice people of the internet.

draw me a diagram, Andrew.

FMC's latest is appalling alright, Catherine. the chances of me ending up alongside this shitbird in traffic again are minimal, but those little fuckers squat in her local park. i haven't visited the DSPCA site - i'd only end up adopting another mad cat.

That is really horrible. Sometimes I worry that I don't understand some people, but who'd want to understand what that was all about? Toad.

Holy shit! What a tragic mess of a human being!! Never mind bullied, that's abusive, pure and simple.

Elaborate punishment and rehab fantasies abound*
