ok I have been out and had a few pints and then decided to come home because I was in quite a bit of pain (4 pints and pain in my hip) outside the square peg and I was on the phone to my dad as I was walking to the bus stop, I see some little **** chav following an old bloke calling him a word removed because he wouldn't give him a fag.

The old bloke went and stood up against the wall looking at his feet and the little scumbag is standing in front of him pushing his face into the old mans asking why he wont **** look at him, I told my dad I would have to phone him back and went over and told this kid to knock it on the head and leave the old fellow alone, he turns and looks at me and says 'he has fags and he won't give me one' I said yeah I've got fags as well but you aint having one of these either' the little bastard said 'I don't want one of your fags I want to know why he won't give me one of his' I told him that the old bastard doesn't need to give him one of his fags and told him to get in my face and to try and bully one out of me, the kid **** flapped it said he was sorry and that he was a former drug user and was sick of people judging him, I explained that when you are intimidating old people you deserve more than being judged and you deserve a **** slap and that I would give him one if he didn't **** off that very second.

he did **** off but that story isn't what **** annoyed me, what **** annoyed me was that there was about 20 people who stood and watched it happening whilst looking at their boots thinking 'maybe if I look a these for long enough they will shine themselves and I won't have to get involved in this'

 

I then got on the bus and the old bloke sat opposite me and I nodded at him and asked if he was alright and he looked out of the window and wouldn't make eye contact with me then after about 30 seconds he reached into his plastic bag and opened a yazoo chocolate milkshake and started jibbering away to himself, not only was he little and old but he was a little slow as well

 

people **** wonder why I have lost **** faith in humanity when I see shit like that.

Be cool Leemond.  You did the right thing. Don't let it get you down.

 

I don't come to Brum much nowadays but I know to avoid places like the Peg for exactly that reason.  You did the right thing and be proud.

I wasn't even drinking in the peg I just get my bus from there, it wasn't even the clearing in the woods that I rowed on that annoyed me, it was the genuine lack of concern/care from the other people around.

I keep asking myself what I would have done 4 years ago when I was in town every Friday night, would I have stood and watched would I have looked away would I have intervened? I dunno maybe it's just the fact that I'm a little older.

I just don't know how people can watch it, when I called my dad back he said I was a **** idiot and I could have got myself stabbed, I didn't even think about that at the time but I suppose he is right and that is probably what everyone else was thinking.

Anyway it's **** my night up, I can't unwind and relax at the moment it has realy done my head in

As I say, you've done the right thing.  I know that when (if) I get to be elderly I would hope that people would look after me. Be that friends/family in my day to day life or complete strangers who step in when say, I drop my wallet, or in tonight's case, when some gimp picks on me because he's short of a fix and I'm vulnerable. I just hope that when I'm old I have people like you stepping in. Society is rubbish but you've proved there is hope.  

 

Now get a beer and chill out. You've earned it.

I dunno if it's a lack of concern or care perhaps so much as fear.  Without the seeing the situation myself I dunno how I would've acted.  I'd like to think I'd have done what you did, but the reality is that most of the folks looking at their shoes would probably have wanted to help but been scared of getting knocked out or stabbed.

 

And for my money people wanting to help and being too afraid is worse than not wanting to help at all.

 

Fair play to you for doing the right thing, and for getting away with it.

Itching to get on the road up to the north, I really like Manchester so happy to be there. Wouldnt want to live there though as when ever I hear a Manchester (or Liverpool for that matter) accent I believe the owner wants to mug me. Cant go up to Bury though until 11 at the earliest though.

Really looking forward to this weekend, combining getting out in the campervan with Eric Church gig. Blinding.
