    Um @SAgirl I think you should go back and read all the posts... especially mine. And perhaps re read your posts and be careful about the use of capitals in your posts, which comes across very rude and confrontational. Using capitals/block letters imply yelling just so you know.

    I'm not going to respond to each and every point you've made because as you say.. it's a bit OTT. And I've already addressed those points and they have nothing to do with the little vent that started this thread. I stand by my posts.
    If it makes you this cross I suggest unsubscribing and not posting further in the thread.
    Oh and the bugaboo thing was a joke. Nothing wrong with one at all. It wasn't a strider.

    I'm not upset at all...

    My use of capitals was not yelling either, it is also used as emphasis on words. That's all.

    Anyway, I've said my piece, simply stating there are reasons why people act the way they do, it's not acceptable to be rude to someone for no reason but it does happen and there could be reasons behind it.

    I think SA Girl's point was that actually posting about a specific incident you had with someone, and then there are pages and pages of support for you and insults towards her (albeit nobody "knows" her) is a bit.... Wrong.

    It's very common on here, and I have often posted saying I think it's off, and now usually don't bother as it's just part of BH.

    Imagine that woman was a member here and saw that? Imagine you knew there were pages on a forum about your friend/daughter/mother/whoever? Not nice.

    And agree that you don't know what that person has experienced that day. Sometimes instead of getting angry and worked up about something, try smiling at them, asking if they're ok. If they are genuinely just nasty it will disarm and confuse them. And if they're having a bad day I am sure they will appreciate it and karma will repay you. Win win.

    My friend was absent minded and bumped into someone once. The feral woman hurled abuse at her. My friends mum had died the day before.

    @SAgirl but judging situations when you weren't there is precisely what a forum like BH is all about.

    I agree in part with what you're saying and it is possible to comment on a topic by judging the situation and not the person but given most people on here are time poor (and this is a very judgmental place) it's not going to happen.

    @kw123 I think TamTam was very nice to her. And the eg you give of your friend proves why a little bit of kindness is always appropriate in every interaction when you're out in public.

    Geez OP I'm sorry this went this way. So many people post experiences on here where it's not clear who was in the wrong or right but you clearly did nothing wrong.

    I don't think TamTam was rude at all - I was referring to the things other posters had said they would do/say in that situation.

    And I still think threads like this are inappropriate (but that's a general thing not directed at TamTam in particular).

    You see I look at BH as the same as what we do with our girlfriends when catching up for coffee. If I'm meeting up with a friend I might say..gosh you wouldn't believe what happened to me yesterday? Then there'd be the usual responses. On BH there are way more people to respond and so it seems bigger than it was. That's all it was. A simple 'you won't believe what happened' conversation I might have with my friends over coffee.

    It's a shame is taken a downward turn. Though I must admit that if the mum does read this she would just take my OP and think Oh yeah. .. I was a bit snarky and come in and say that was me!! I certainly wouldn't tear shreds off her. In fact I haven't called her names. I just said she was rude.
    Much like a similar thread last night about stealing parking spaces. That was rude too!

    I must admit, I am a bit puzzled that you genuinely didn't expect the repercussions of posting such a thing. Coffee with friends is one thing, posting it on a forum is quite another! Anyway, I hope today is better for you OP
