I cannot fukcing believe it

I absolutely still cannot fucking believe what's happened today.

I was leaving work in Morden at about 6:30 and I was standing at the bus stop a short distance from the office, completely just minding my own business- not looking at or proviking anybody, when I felt a blow to the side of my head very akin to being hit by a basketball (or for that matter poi) flung at full force. I assumed it was an accident and turned around at which point I got the benefit of a fist in the face that left me totally stunned and knocked me down (although that may well have been due to shock).

At which point I saw that my assaulters were Fucking CHildren. Well teenagers to be exact, one of them (I assume the one who punched me) was taller than me and built like a bulldog but the other four only came up to about my shoulder.

And the little snotnosed dickweed fuckheads ran off, LAUGHING and cheering and high-fiving each other.

I did not give chase. They had a headstart and most significantly there were five of the little criminals and only one of me, but I was left in an absolute rage. In some quantity I still am. Oh I'd like to catch them individually and give them something to laugh about, or high five the little shitheads with a booted kick to the balls.

I cannot fucking believe it. I just can't. They didn't even try to mug me (unless it was the most inept fucking mugging ever), they just attacked me out of the blue. Randomly. For no fucking reason whatsoever, beyond I suppose that they simply could. There was nothing I did to deserve this, and they outnumbered me, and there was nothing I could do to defend myself or retaliate.

That was two hours ago, and now I'm home and somewhat calmer.
Physically I'm not too bad - I've got a ringing headache, some bruising on the cheekbone and an ex-nose bleed, but mostly I'm in shock.

I think I just need to curl up somewhere and cry.

I know you're at least okay, but someone needs to track the punks down and kick their asses!

*constructs more elaborate revenge fantasies*

thank you

That is absolutely terrible and I hope you're OK. Something similar happened to my husband before Christmas (he was attacked by teenagers for no reason). I hope you'll phone the police and report the assault--perhaps they might be caught, and it might help you to feel better to know that you're being proactive.

But mostly I just want to say: that sucks. Poor you!

Thank you, and I'm sorry to hear your hubby suffered similar.

I just don't understand why they can't content themselves with setting cars on fire like normal teenagers.

I'd totally want to throw and break things and scream and shout.

I agree, you should contact the police and after you're done being angry burn some candles and try to collect some of the peace they've wrenched away, the little shits.

My god, I'm so angry on your behalf my fingers are shaking.

THank you :)

I've felt better for all the lovely responses.

Little shits.
I felt kind of too overwrought to deal with police tonight, but I will tomorrow morn first thing especially as I've got the day off to get myself together.

I hope you feel better soon.

I am recommending chamomile tea for everything in the last couple of days - but it does seem to help in so many situations.

Smart and sensible not to run after, I hope you heal quickly and that your assailants are plagued by locusts.

Thank you :)

I haven't gone to the police yet - mostly because my emotions were all over the place and I just wanted to get home - but I will tomorrow, especially as work has granted me a day off.

BTW did you report them to the Police? I wouldn't be surprised to find out they've done it before.

Ugh! Idiots!

They could have least done it to a complete bastard, and not your wonderful self. Pfft.

As above with the police report, and witnesses. You should probably check if there are any CCTV cameras in the vicinity as well, although I imagine the police would be able to check that out.

*Tea*
*Hugs*

I hadn't thought of the CCTV - they probably don't have it because it's a regular residential area but it's worth checking and I'm going to go down and talk to the cops tomorrow.

I've gone all gritty teeth at the thought of it wanting to give them a right good kicking for you. Argh!

You deserve lovely random things to happen to you, not the attack of the morons.

Big big hugs. Possibly some alcohol. And elaborate revenge fantasies if the camomile tea doesn't work.

Burningly cross about it all,
Noranti

Outrageous
I'm sorry to hear that. When I visited England some h.s. kids that lived near my homestay family pulled a knife on me. I told them they either need to come with a gun or an attitude or I was going to rip off an arm and beat them to death with the bloody stump. A 13 yr old Texan carrying 400lbs of luggage is taken seriously on public transportation I guess, they backed off.

That would never happen in Texas. The reason is every young hooligan is afraid the person they're randomly attacking might be holding a Desert Eagle .50 and is itchy to use it. If you hit someone in Texas, you have a definite reason you think it's going to directly benefit you.

I hope you feel better soon.
