03:03 am: Mixed night.

Went to meet lady_miamew at Jacey's ahead of Retribution. Then I got to one of these random branching points in life. I chose to go left into the left-hand bar to look for her, and circled round to the back, into the right-hand bar, walked past the pool table, and got some horrific abuse shouted at me by some chav scumbags who were playing pool. Utterly shaken, I found Abi and sit down and nearly started crying.

Went to Retribution reasonably soon after that. Lots of people out tonight, particularly good to see Emma who I'd not seen in ages... Had fun dancing in my new boots, although my feet now hurt. (they are barely big enough. hopefully they are broken in now, although it feels like it's my feet that have been broken in). At Retribution, I got a random compliment from some guy - he came up to me, said something like that I was looking the best that he'd seen me looking, and then vanished. It is strange how people's reactions to me vary.

Rather tired now, and my feet hurt. I think next week I'll be wearing my nice oversize flat work boots.

Your boots were cool, though.

Chav scum are just jealous and resentful that you're a person, because chavs are made out of kits. Don't collect the whole set.

Abi suggested it was caused by me walking uncomfortably in the boots cos they hadn't been broken into yet, or that their comment was aimed at someone else entirely. However, since it was so cruel and seemingly targetted, I don't buy that. This is making me quite paranoid as it implies people generally lie to me.

Person A does not shout abuse at person B because person B deserves abuse. Person A shouts abuse because person A is an asshole. Simple as that. Abi has a point about the boots - you're quite shy anyway, add new-boot-walk and you probably seemed very uncertain. Easy target for abuse from scum.
You know they're just random scumbags, don't give them or their foul mouths another thought.

I think I can probably guess the sort of thing, chavs being chavs and all.
Try to consider the source.

thinking about it, it's not what they said that bothers me, but that it occurred to them to say it.

I still stand by what I said last night and I am still amazed that anyone would have thought that. I also think, as I said last night, that the comment was meant as "funny insult", but them not really thinking it. If that makes sense. I don't want to say too much here.
Could probably explain more in person.

I thought you looked ace and I am sooo jealous of the boots :o)

I guess it says something I don't get this very often. There was one similar incident in Germany a couple of years but they were speaking German so I didn't really understand what they were saying. (and am glad of it).

I've had some incredibly hutful stuff said to me by chavs in my time, and I know what you mean about it not being what they said, but that they thought it was ok TO say it.

My consolatiom is that I know their lives consist of.....
smoking ciggies
smoking cheap pot
drinking shit lager
listening to by-numbers clony shit comercial dance
shagging REALLY rough women with 4 kids and a crumbling council house
getting into fights for 'a laugh'
wearing crap clothes that all their mates wear 'cos they couldn't bear to stand out
and of course.. being abusive to people that don't conform to the above, because they're too narrow minded to accept that not everyone wants to be/is like them.

When you think about it, you start to pity them more than anything else

Also, if something like that happens somewhere 'friendly' like Jayceys again, tell the manager and get them barred. *grins* revenge is allways fun.

Either that, or take the 'Evil Boots of Doom' off and beat them to death with the heal *grins more*

Yeah. The fact that it happened there was particularly disturbing - I had considered it a safe space.

I didn't react in any way, because I didn't want to give them the satisfaction of knowing that they had hurt me. If I'd've stomped on them, or got them thrown out, or whatever, they'd have known they'd touched a nerve. At least, that's my rationalisation now. I think I just froze up.

Chav scum aren't worth worrying over unless they are an immediate threat to your safety... They will shout at anyone who doesn't fit their mould and appearance that they have.

So in your case that would be having gelled scraped back hair with some ugly strands hanging over your face... Too much ugly makeup PLASTERED all over your face and the world's biggest gold plated hoop earrings. That's before I get started on chavgirl clothes... Multiple earrings of the goldplated hooped variety + dreadful essex girl accent are a bonus...

I've taken to taking the piss out of Sheffield chavs cos they're pathetic, but I'm much more careful at my mum's which is in Stockport, cos Stockport is the Chav Central of the universe and they are nasty..

Boots RAH!

I'm not going to repeat it here (i've been able to bring myself to tell exactly two people - lady_miamew and spindr) but it was really quite targetted, and nasty. Jacey's is a rock bar, it's not like they were just shouting at everyone there.

Bugger.. :(

This sort of thing makes me want to get out the flame thrower and use it. I shall imagine flamethrowering the chavs in question so you can continue to stomp.
