Foaming at the mouth

with 4 comments

Another example of a regional newspaper’s letters page being used for a heavily sarcastic public ‘thank you’. This time it’s thank you for NOTHING.

The anger in this letter keeps building wonderfully, much like foam freshly sprayed from a can.

South Wales Echo, 4 September 2010:

A big thanks for nothing

A BIG and special thank you to those lovely people in Penarth town centre who, on Saturday, August 28, did nothing.

They were sitting or standing in the bus stop or standing outside shops or passing by and numbly watched me, an innocent small Chinese woman being surrounded by a gang of teenagers and attacked by one of them spraying canned foam at me in broad daylight.

Thank you all for your apathy and unsupportiveness towards such brazen, violent, bullying behaviour!

Just be aware that this kind of similar situation will happen to you one day and you will know what it feels like to be attacked and no-one helps.

You, the one who attacked me, should be feeling lucky because I did not beat the living daylights out of you when I could.

Bullying makes my blood boil and I never tolerate it!

You thought you would be considered a hero amongst your friends just because you picked a weak-looking Chinese woman and attacked her and then ran away. You are wrong. If you have a brain, you will regret one day for having stood out as a bully “leader”.

Alright luv, you’ve said your piece… it’s best to just try and put it behind you now. For your own sake, more than anything.

Oh, go on then…

You were bullying me with joy. However, one day you will sadly be bullied by somebody else, and one day you mother will be bullied, and your father, your brothers and sisters, and your friends and your friends’ friends and their families.

This will go on and on and on… and you might not be “lucky” to be attacked by just a can of foam.

I was kind of relieved when you said sorry across the road and I was glad for you.

I hope your sorry is genuine from the bottom of your heart.

That means you still have the consciousness for shame and your life has still a light of hope. Otherwise I will feel sorry for you!

A helpless Chinese woman
Name and address supplied

All of that, just for a bit of foam in the face.  Imagine all of the letters Dick and Dom must have had over the years.

  2. I’m intrigued by “You, the one who attacked me, should be feeling lucky because I did not beat the living daylights out of you when I could.”

    Is she a secret Kung Fu mistress who’s not allowed to use her powers in daylight?

  4. First they came for the innocent small Chinese women, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t an innocent small Chinese woman.

    Next they came for the trade unionists…
