Why a minority of men think it's ok to stop a lone woman and harass her. Its happened to me and he wasn't happy when I told him no.

 

Why people don't look where they're going. I then get dirty looks for being in their way.

I don't get it when people just walk into you and yet half the pavement is free. Its mobile phones that should be banned from using when walking. If you need to use your mobile when out and about, stop somewhere, sit down and try again..

I seem to seeing an increasing number of people walking around reading newspapers and books. They're completely oblivious to what's around them.

Why when i venture into that dangerous place the supermarket do people insist on blocking my way with the trolleys.

Either side of the aisles and one in the middle looking at invisible articles.

You will not pass.A snarl worthy of a boxer if you say anything or a quick mumble as they move over your toes as they move out of the way.

A lethal weapon in some peoples hands.

 

Over your toes they go,i am sure sometimes some get pleasure from this. Many times a smile comes across their faces as they bruise you in the most unusual places.

Then out into the gales in the carparks to see the abandoned trolleys doing the trolley dance that ends up smashing into your car.

I have even seen them flying down roads at 20 mph

Which has me roaring with laughter:wink:,then tears when you see it smash once again into your car.

A double whammy.:-)

And how do they,the trolleys end up in alleys,lakes,canals even on a scrap mans truck at times.

Some sort of holiday they are having perhaps.

I have heard they are worth a hundred or two.At that price they should have trackers.

To hunt them down for a reward.

This is an American import, it originated in ghetto / poor areas where the use of 'hand-me-down' clothing is prolific. The thinking behind it is, I understand, to demonstrate that your older brother is much larger in stature than the wearer and therefore they're not to be messed with. An unspoken promise of a good hiding from the wearer's bigger, stronger, tougher brother.

Is this true? Very interesting if so.

I'll quote the urban dictionary to explain C.

 

 

Sagging:

 

 

wearing ones pants around the hips so that they sag down and bunch up around the ankles. Originally, this was a prison thing that signified that you were another prisoner's property, ie bitch. Punks were forced to wear their pants this way. Somehow this became a 1990's fashion trend. I learned this from watching a TV special on prison life. The inmate who related the story was an elderly black gentleman who had been sentenced to life in prison and had been there for over fifty years. He marveled how such a mark of shame became a fashion statement. He said that younger inmates don't believe him when he tells them but swears it's the truth. I believed him. I also think they should let him out already, he's like 80 and I don't think he represents a threat to society.

I believe it goes back further in prisons/chain gangs and slavery, your belt would be taken away to prevent harming yourself and others, and of course your trousers would not stay up.

How people get sucked into the hype surrounding films such as Star Wars etc. Why people start sentences with "So" and "Like" and end them with "Yeah" or "Know what I mean?".

I stand, quite happily, corrected then.

 

The explanation I posted came from a Discovery style documentary on gang culture a good while ago.
