I shouted at 2 people today...

idiot 1
me, a blind man and another woman all crossing the road on the crossing,some fuckwit pulling out of a drive or something screeches his car around and slams on the brakes in a macho 'I'm so street me' way,well me and this other lady turn in fear as it sounded as though he wasnt going to stop and he could obviously see the blind man crossing the road who wouldn't have known what was happening,so I shouted out 'you fuckwit!' at him (bit of public order there!) cos I was so angry that he had frightened a blind man like that.

idiot 2

was a young jack the lad who was walking out of a carpet shop not looking where he was going carrying a 10ft metal edging on his shoulder narrowly missing my face cos I had my wits about me and saw him coming,'ooh sorry' he says,so I shouted 'watch where you're going!' I mean I know he wasn't doing it on purpose but how thick can you be?I think I need a holiday cos I feel despair at the human race sometimes,I think this is the downside of this job,it doesnt bother me too much when I'm dealing with things on a professional level,but I cant tolerate the general public when I'm off duty I really can't.

Whenever I get like this I tell my squad on parade so that they can keep an eye on me. Every time it looks like I'm about to point out to someone how frickin stupid they are one of them comes and saves me the bother of a complaint!

luckily I wasnt on duty,but sometimes I have days where I think 'dont cross me or I will nick you today!'

You mean to say policing makes you even less tolerant of the general public....? I dread to think what I'll be like if I get in, best start working on keeping my mouth shut & just shooting withering looks instead. Then again, superglue lipgloss could be a good idea.....

I dont know if it makes me less tolerant as such,cos I've never suffered fools gladly but I just cant bear to be around Joe Public when I'm off duty sometimes,especially on public transport which I am having to use on a regular basis again atm cos I still cant drive for long because of my knee injury-at least in a car I can shout as much as I like!

GND when you do join,withering looks and subtle sarcasm and of course,lipgloss are all essentials!
