Last night was magical. But magic aside, around 12am I found out I needed a supply and began to panic when my friend says not to worry, we'll go pick it up at the 24hr store. We were cut up in drinks and conversation when we realized it was 1am and we best get going. Off to the store, the roads were still busy, I got stopped by two police men #happyweekendma and the store was a bit crowded #saturdaynightlife. Leaving the store, my friend was walking beside me, but along the curb while I was walking closer to the road, as it wasn't so busy. Then a car coming towards me suddenly starts speeding with full force, with the horns blaring loudly, the car swerves straight at me and on getting within a few inches of me, the driver suddenly marches his brake and swerves back unto the road, the driver and his cohort laughing uproariously. I'm in shock and unlike was expected of me, (to panick, shriek, jump up and jump back, fall down maybe), I stand on the spot, transfixed. Those bloody idiots could have either killed me or destroyed my legs.
A few feet away they park, come out of the car to walk into a nearby club. (I was glad I didn't give them the satisfaction of seeing me freaking out.
Now my partner stood, battling with emotions and decisions; to ignore them and keep walking or to approach them and demand an explanation/apologies. Everyone looked to him to see how he would react. The guys had just assaulted the lady he was with.
My question is, as a lady, would you have expected/preferred him to approach the young guys and "defended your honour"? As a guy, would you have confronted them, perhaps made them apologise, or would you have just let it slide?
Do let me know.
