Thread: The worst dog walking experience today.

    My life would be so much easier if I could out rude people 10 to 1 on a whim - usually I'm much better at being unintentionally offensive. Instead I have to go shopping for some ice skates.

    Thanks so much everyone, your replies make me feel so much better.

    I don't see what's so funny about being hacked to death with an ice skate. I think it is a particularly gruesome way to die.

    I've had a few people tell me that my sort of dog should be on lead after him casually going up to greet someone in an offleash area. I just laugh and remind them that it's an offleash dog area and well, occasionally add some extra colour to my response, depending on my mood.

    I too loved your description of the "ice skate" and stuff, great rant!

    Yes it would be a horrible way to die and wouldn't be funny. How you worded it was funny. Not the actual fact. Hope that make sense.

    I dunno. Stopping the car to yell at someone stopping their dog from pulling, and then running away - rates as totally crazy in my book.

    So a good dog trainer knows that reward based training works best on people as well as dogs, especially ones you don't know all that well (ok complete strangers). Yelling at dogs (or people) doesn't work. Well unless you're trying to stop them from running under a bus - but sometimes all you do is scare them into doing that anyway.

    Crazy people often do look completely normal. It's what they do that makes them look "whacko".

    Hyacinth that was probably the nicest post you've ever made towards me, thank you. I'm usually saying something wrong when I get a reply from you aren't I?
    Not necessarily. I do like to take things literally... some of what you've written when taken literally - can be a bit shocking. That's an internet/written thing - sarcasm almost never comes across as intended.

    I reckon goggles was just deliberitely over exaggerating his/her response initially which was what I found funny. His/her second posting I also believe was just a stir, I mean seriously, read the post, who would seriously think up using an ice skate as a weapon if they were serious?

    Nice work goggles, great rant and clearly sucked a few people in! lol

    I know googles was joking in his/her first post.
    It was the part about thinking he/she thought they would get away with it because they had nothing to do with ice skating that made me laugh.

    The second post you mentioned MMJ about him/her having a stir was the bit I wasn't sure on.

    As Hyacinth said, sarcasm can be hard to pick on the internet.

    We all have buttons. rude strangers offering me animal husbandry tips whilst something small snarls/yaps/pirouettes to take a chunk out of me at the end of the piece of bright coloured braiding does it for me to. some duck whit that stops their car, approaches me on a pavement, and bellows at me. Well, i have 17 seconds to lose my shit. After that, its not longer 'self defense'.

    I'll just go pop this sharpened roller skate back in the cupboard then....lol

    Car wasn't moving, I think she had just gotten in, saw me, screamed at me and had a good go at me, got back in her car with husband or son in tow (who looked quite nervous) and I shouted back as they drove off. I got flipped the finger by her male companion, who honestly looked so glad to be getting out of there and that was the end of that.

    Extremely unpleasant and I would rather forget about it. Unless she lives near me.

    Maybe she was parked out the front of her house.

    I don't like to yell at people like that. You really don't want to poke the crazy bear. But sometimes I do. If I have people with me that are bigger and scarier than they are.
