I had a similar situation a few months back whilst I was waiting for a bus, and coincidently they were throwing stones but none of them even came close to hitting me because I was behind a clear plastic bus shelter, I put up with this for ten minutes until the three morons started shouting at me from across the street (please note that capital letters denote shouting).
Another 2-3 minutes passed and the stone throwing commenced as I waited for my bus, please note that I turn up early for my buses because on many occasions they have showed up very early and ofcourse by the time I've got to the bus stop I have to wait another whole hour for the next one unless some kind old lady tells me the bus I'm waiting for has gone.
So, after five minutes of stone throwing the guys says the same thing:
The morons laughed and silently conversed amongst themselves.
Each moron laughed out loud the second after he shouted, so I responded:
Me: HAHAHA! YOUR SOOO F*CKIN' FUNNY!
One of the morons (didn't see which one): SHUT UP GINGER.
Me: YOU WOULDN'T BE SAYING SH*T IF YOU WERE ALONE.
I repeated my last sentence, the exact same way I said my first, I knew he heard me but I said it again just to make sure. He probably thought that he would be giving the impression that he was a threat or that I wouldn't have the nads to repeat what I said, but I made it clear that it wasn't the case.
More words were exchanged though I can't remember exactly what, but it did lead up to:
Me: WHY DON'T YOU COME OVER HERE AND SAY THAT?
For about twenty seconds the morons mumbled amongst themselves until I heard one say:
Moron-1: Should we go over there?
Me: YEAH, COME OVER HERE.
The other two nodded and got up, the other took a second longer, to me this said that he was the weak link in the group, even though he was the guy who started it to begin with. This also said to me that my earlier statement "YOU WOULDN'T BE SAYING SH*T IF YOU WERE ALONE." was indeed true and that this whole issue on his part was motivated by his desire to show off to his friends.
So, as they crossed the road a car drove past meaning they had to stop briefly to avoid being run over, seeing this I shouted:
Me: CAREFUL LITTLE GIRLS, DON'T WANT TO GET RUN OVER DO WE?
The reason I referred to them as 'little girls' is because I knew for a fact, just by looking at them that they liked to think of themselves as 'men', so I thought I'd try and be a little patronizing by totally disregarding their 'manhood' and call them 'little girls', I call it 'the emasculation effect'
So, when they got to my side of the road I positioned my self slightly more inside the bus shelter since it was a narrower space because of the wall opposite the inside, meaning that they would find it harder to surround me if the all came at once, and I could also use the wall or bus shelter as part of my arsenal if necessary, failing that I could still retreat with a nice open space outside the shelter to my rear.
Carrying on, one moron said:
Moron-1: Yeah, so what do you want then?
Me: So you think it's funny shouting sh*t from across the road do you?
Moron-1: What? I didn't say anything, I think he's chattin' sh*t don't you?
He said as he looked to his friends, for approval, yet more dependence on his buddies, it was becoming increasingly clear that if I was to take out any of them it would have to be this dweeb.
Me: No, I'm not chattin' sh*t, you 'were' shouting at me from over there and I don't think it's funny.
Moron-3: What? I was chattin' sh*t?
Me: No, I never saw you do anything, it was these two.
I think Moron-3 just didn't want feel left out, I didn't see him actually do anything so I wasn't directing anything at him, but I still say he's a moron for hanging out with such idiots.
There was more talk and talk of fighting, I don't remember clearly but I remember they laughed out loud when I said I'd take on the three of them at once, to which I replied:
Me: No, really, I'm serious.
Moron-1: Yeah whatever mate, why don't you take your hair out of your face?
I liked the fact he was uncomfortable with my hair, I could see where he was looking and what his expressions were, but he couldn't do the same, I chuckled inside my head at this.
Me: No I won't, why do you want to see my face anyway? are you gay?
Yet more of the 'emasculation effect' in play here.
Moron-1: Who? Me? Yeah!
This was a surprising reaction, I would never expect a moron such as this to be secure with his sexuality, it looked like the 'emasculation effect' wasn't going to work on this guy, though I tried it again just to be sure.
Me: Really? Me too! Wanna go around the back there?
Moron-1: What? No! I'm goin' man, I don't like gay boys.
Inside my head I laughed out loud. He totally wasn't expecting to be called on that, and it worked perfectly.
Now him and his friends were walking away, but I didn't want to leave it on a bad note
Me: So, don't you want to fight then, you did earlier didn't you?
Moron-1: What just me? Or all of us?
Me: I don't really mind, what do you want to do?
Wasn't I polite?
Moron-1 was about to take off his bag, but when he saw me take mine off and kick it out of the way he couldn't seem to make up his mind, he kept picking it up and putting it down whilst he silently conversed with his friends, the other two however didn't really want anything to do with it, they must have been thinking that it was none of their business and that it was their friends problem, explaining why Moron-1 couldn't make up his mind due to the fact his friends weren't going to back him up, or they could have been thinking why was a 5'5 long haired gingernut was standing up to 3 people who were each 5'10 - 6'?
Eventually they left without saying a word, leaving me to say to my self "wtf was that all about? all that build up for nothing!" I mused (I talk to myself quite often, monologuing is a hobby of mine
A few minutes later the bus came, I ordered a child fare even though I was 17 and went to the back of the bus as I always do (youth is cheap!
), as I sat down and the bus began to move, I noticed the morons walking back down the road, I kindly waved to them but I didn't think they noticed to to lack of response.
What did I learn from this? Not much except that chavs are even bigger wimps than I first thought, can't take up a challenge even though they had superior numbers.
