It seems a sadly all-too common occurrence these days for chavvy scumbags to feel the need to mouth off at random passers-by, for reasons which escape civilised men. I have, on occasion, been the victim of what I’m sure to the tracksuited unemployed ones was a sharp and witty remark, and I’m sure there are many more people who have fallen victim to the acid (or should that be mild lemon?) tongue of a chav.
That about sums it up.
I also ignore them, which is in fact the best response to street trolls. They don’t like it – they want to look ‘hard’ in front of their mates, hoping to convey a sense of dominance over others. Let’s face it, they can never hope to assert intellectual supremacy over most of humanity, so the odd threatening put-down is as much as they can wish for.
They certainly can’t rely on looks or charm.
