"No, I said I found your assumption that because I am a woman that it may be a "bad time" as you put it, and that a "wee cup of tea" may solve my
problems, offensive and patronising, and I think most woman would agree with me on that."
I was referring to Xmas not periods. Just so we are clear on that subject!
I was also trying to use a little levity to point out that you seemed rather on your moral high horse regarding your not coming down to other people's
level. Sometimes that is all that is required IMHO of course to reach a better understanding of one anothers problems.
"As for your comments re: domestic abuse, yes, I'm sure there are male abused in those figures, but as you, yourself have stated, as a fellow Scot,
I'm sure that you'll be very well aware that the majority of those figures relate to women being abused by men, you know it, I know it and everyone
knows it...to paraphrase your earlier post."
Thats because Men dont report such trivial matters(In our eyes) to Police scum. Im in no way condoning domestic abuse from either party.
"As for your offense take to my pointing out your grammatical mistakes, I apologise, as I obviously did not know you were dyslexic. However, you
should be aware that if you pass comments about other people's writing style, then they are perfectly in order to pass comments on yours."
Ive not taking offence hunny dont worry about that. I and many others just find it hard to read a large body of text without the inclusion of
paragraphs. I also dont mind you passing any other comments regarding the subject matter. Thats what we are here for is it not?
"As for the rest of your post defending people who behave in a totally unacceptable manner, I have to assume that you do not have people like that
living on top, below and across from you, or maybe you do and you just don't mind stepping over beer cans and fast food, having people shouting,
screaming, fighting etc at all hours of the night, walking out of your front door to be hit with the smell of urine, or having to replace your
bathroom carpet because they flooded their bathroom for a laugh! If so, then that's fine for you, but I don't like having to live like that and
neither do the rest of the neighbours in the block who have to put up with it as well. One of the elderly residents is now too scared to go out on her
own and has to wait until her daughter can come and take her shopping...that's just despicable in my opinion."
Im not defending them i just think we should address these social issues in a different and more pertinent fashion. Not just house the scum all in one
little box. I will say this, the women you refer to who have suffered domestic abuse would be rehoused in the very same scum villages that you seem to
agree should be created. Where do you think they put all the scatter flats? I will give you a hint, problem areas!
"So yet again, I totally disagree with your opinion that this idea is akin to Nazi Germany, in fact it is almost the other way around, the decent, law
abiding people in this block are being forced to live in a ghetto simply because we cannot afford to go anywhere else and we have to live by the rule
of the minority, because we do not have a choice and there is seemingly nothing anyone can do about it. Not a nice way to live (and that's why I was
posting in the early hours this morning because sleep was impossible)"
Im sorry to hear your neighbors are disturbing your sleep. All i can suggest is chap the door and burst them in the mouth if they refuse to be quiet.
I dont think you will agree with my solution somehow but it works trust me.
"But I think we'll have to agree to disagree on this one, because you clearly believe that these people have a right to do what ever they want no
matter who is affected, and I don't. "
I clearly believe everyone has the right to do as they wish within reason. I will add i live in Glasgow so i also share your pain regarding problem
familys and social scum in general. I just deal with it in in a different fashion.
