    :mad: Yesterday I was walking along in my black work skirt suit and heels, feeling reasonably smart and good about myself because of my losses, when I walked past a bunch of young builders sitting on the pavement having their lunch. They were giving passing women marks out of 10. Now, I would consider myself at 41 to be "off their radar" but unfortunately, no. One of them looked at me and said "I'd give her a f*cking ZERO" and the other said "But she's got huge t*ts though" whereupon they all laughed. I carried on walking a few steps and thought "NO! I am NOT just taking this!" so I spun on my heel and gave them the middle finger. Their jaws just about hit their knees in shock. I was still upset though. Anyway thought I'd get it off my (admittedly large) chest ....:eek:

    what a bunch of S**t heads!! honestly, doesn't that make you cross :mad:. who bloody gave them permission to make judgements about others .... sooooo wrong.

    Ok rant over!

    Sweetie, good for you with your fast response and determination! I know it didn't stop you being upset, but I bet there was some satisfaction to be had from stopping them in there tracks x

    Ooh this hit a nerve with me.

    I once went to a wimmins' group (about 20 years ago) and the only time I cried (in all of the horridness of my childhood etc) was when I was describing how appalling it made me feel to walk past a building site and to be judged by this horrid breed of men.

    (I know not all of them do it, but it is a stereotype with a grain of truth PLUS I married a feckin builder, so I should know! lol).

    Alas, these days, I'm more likely to do a Joanna out of Green Wing and, if they don't whistle, go back and rip off my shirt to give them another chance!!!!

    I think you were remarkably restrained to merely give them the finger. I would have been tempted to either a) hit them with a torrent of foul language that they hadn't even heard of or b) given them a schoolmarmy lecture on good manners!

    I think you retained your dignity beautifully and should take comfort in the fact that you probably earn twice as those low-life do!

    They simply couldn't afford you, darling!!!!
