    i was minding my own business the other day when suddenly i heard a commotion outside in the carpark (i live in an apartment block)

    i went and looked out the window, and saw & heard my neighbours having a major barney

    he's obviously been caught cheating, cause she was screaming "i know everything....i found out about your whore....i know it all"

    he was denying it "you know what? theres nothing to know... you're imagining things"

    this was followed by "I KNOW EVERYTHING" delivered in a very highpitched roar, followed quickly by tears and wailing, and her actually throwing herself on the ground

    when he approached her to comfort her, she started punching him and shouting "i hate you"

    he backed off, and then she took off her shoe and threw it at him

    he then retorted with "you crazy b**ch"

    she then started telling him to pack his bags, get out of her home and her life etc


    her piece de resistance however, was to point at her boobs and go "you'll never see these again"

    now, it just got me thinking... have these people no shame, no dignity, no sense of decorum??

    i would never behave like that in public (or in private for that matter)

    i doubt they were drunk as it was reasonably early in the morning

    i remember seeing a youtube clip of knackers in athlone having a very public domestic...i'd include it here if i knew how...

    When your at the receiving end, sometimes its very hard to walk away.
    As for the enraged person doing all the shouting, it could be just a final straw that has forced them to snap.
    The location then becomes immaterial to the conscious mind. It just needs to blow its gasket.

    So you saw the woman assault the man and didn't call the cops? That would be my first reaction.

    he would have been perfectly capable of calling them himself

    it wasnt a serious assault, it wasnt a sustained assault, he wasnt incapacitated by it so he could have called them himself if he wanted to

    I doubt he's exactly heartbroken by the sound of things?

    Fair enough, if I was there I would have at least reported it. I would do the same if roles were reversed but I guess we live in a society where if a woman lays a hand on a man it is seen as much less serious that if it was the other way around:mad:

    Frequently, no doubt.

    Probably. The good-looking knacker never fúcks up the arse.

    no, actually, this wasnt a gender issue and stop trying to turn it into one.

    if it had been a sustained assault, a serious one that left him badly injured, an assault that rendered him incapable of walking away and getting help for himself, then i would have been on the phone.

    however, he got a few punches and a shoe thrown at him.

    he did not appear hurt, he was able to go from crouching to standing position after the punches, and able to walk away after the shoe was thrown.

    he didnt need anyone else intervening or calling the cops.

    if the genders had been reversed, and she was the one in receipt of the punches etc, i would not have called the guards either, as long as she was as capable of getting away from the situation as he was.

    so it was nothing to do with gender, it was all to do with the fact that this was a relatively minor dispute.

    I hate having arguments, but they happen from time to time.

    As a poker dealer/poker tournament director, you have to be good at keeping your cool tho, especially if angry/drunk/losing players are involved. This 'practice' helps me keep my cool better than most people I reckon.

    I love seeing people making gobshítes out of themselves having stupid arguments in public tho.

    No problem, I'm just stating what I would have done and why I would have done so.:)

    well, you also effectively accused me of being sexist against the man in this situation.

    There is very little that i enjoy doing in front of strangers to be honest. Loud arguing also a big no-no

    I think the trick is not to shout back - anyone who is only hearing the argument will hopefully assume the girl is arguing with someone else or talking to herself. Yes wishful thinking, but I dont think that a "who can shout louder" match is the answer to any situation

    i have a 3 bedroom house, my sister lives up the stairs with her ... lesbian lover. there's a side door entrance so i never see them but boy you can hear them! they fight almost twice a week, resulting in things been broken, alot of shouting and a lot of slamming doors. there's been one time when they were obviously drunk and the lover of my sister came to the house and started throwing stones because my sister wouldn't speak to her, that resulted in my sister getting very angry going into the street and starting what can only be described as a bitch fight. end result the police come and they are in the cells for a weekend. it is so embarrassing but sometimes when something like that happens people don't care for where they are as another poster said it could be the last straw
