having a great session on the bike saturday afternoon, had done around 25 miles and was caning it ,when out of the corner of my eye i see a blue saxo driving alongside me, with that the chav (you know the type, baseball cap, blaring music) in the passenger seat opens the window and to the hilarity of his mates, launches a gob full of flem at me! all down my leg! oh how i was praying for some traffic lights or something up ahead..................

just thought i'd share that with you, nice eh?

I've said this before on these threads and I'll say it again. We need the death penalty back. I am serious. An action such as that speaks volumes about that persons inability to adjust to society. They should be pricked like weeds and destroyed.

What a vile creature.

I'd have been livid.

JayVee - your proposal would have merit if there was evidence the death penalty stopped anti-social behaviour, or indeed any criminal activity. I think even the most repressive societies would balk at executing someone for spitting, however disgusting it is and there is little evidence to suggest societies with capitol punishment have lower crime rates than those without. Indeed, if the death penalty was an effective deterant, there wouldn't be anyone on death row...

On a lone training ride last year I had a chav mobile driving dangerously close to me, in an attempt for the passenger, who was leaning out of the window, to have a grope.  Pretty scary when you have a kerb one side, a car the other side and you're clipped in.    Idiots.

They couldn't carry on if they were dead, could they.

It's a shame you weren't running - you could have just spat back at him

I don't know Nam - they caught haunt you

hmmm... dunno... had those chaps wrapped themselves around the nearest tree at the next roundabout, I think I would have still slept pretty well.

Urgh scumbag. You should have got his plate and reported him to the police.

As for the death penalty, might be a bit OTT in this case!

It is called a "penalty" though and/or Capitol Punishment. It's not called Death deterrant, it would certainly cut reoffending rates....

Carry your phone with you and when such things happen, take picture of their reg no (or pretend to do so) - that usually scares them

And if you do take photo, find out who they are and do an early morning run when nobody is about, run past their house and do a lovely steamy morning turd in front of their door

yeah sure... when there's 5 of them and one of you... 

all they need to do is pull over and on top of the original harrassment you find suddenly find yourself "sans phone" and possibly with a smack in the mouth...

Velcro some pepper spray to the frame of your bike but if you use it, make sure there are escape routes that a car can't follow you down.

I agree with Nam on this...disgusting yes...but retaliation could lead to a knife stuck in your stomach...low-lifes like these would have no compunction and feel no guilt.

OMG that's truly disgusting! i've been hit by gob before (mid race) which was bad enough but the chap didn't know i was behind him so i kind of let him off (sort of)..

I definately wouldn't retalite.. i have to keep my anger in check (i commute) in the city with taxi's pedestrians.. i've landed myself in hot water a couple of times.. (particularly with a white van - i don't think he'd heard such language from a "lady") but you never know i hear some horror stories on our work cycling forum about knives being pulled on people!

I didn't mention deterrent. It never has been a deterrent. That is not the actual point. As stated earlier it goes to show the persons character or total lack thereof. If they think that kind of behaviour is a giggle, they are so far gone that they cannot possibly adapt to society. They need not be here scaring law abiding peaceful people.

Are we talking about spitting here, or genocide?
04/11/2010 at 14:38
I agree with the sentiment but death mightn't be the best answer. Bring back the stocks I say!

It'd be genocide for a while, but after that all would be peaceful... and there would be less spitting. Pity I can't be the British PM, I'd sort it all out for you.
