How Rude… Im English

Hi,

So I was casually outside,  in town and I heard/saw a woman singing opera songs. Now for Oxford that’s pretty weird. I decided to sit down and film it,  well her..in a non creepy way. After about a minute the opera woman started to attract a small crowd and amoung the crowd was a evil middle aged woman. Ok let me explain…

Firstly she looked at me evilly for filming the opera singer, even though other people were also filming her.

Secondly check out this conversation between her and I,  she was stood on my right and the wind was blowing from the right, she was smoking:
ME: excuse me,  sorry but could you possibly smoke on the other side,  its just that the winds blowing this way and the smokes blowing into my face.

HER: No I can smoke where I goddam like. *insert more evil looks* you don’t belong in this bloody country anyway,  if you don’t like it leave.
Me:…

Guys I’m quite a polite person so naturally I didn’t say anything back to that remark but how can someone in this day and age have the nerve to tell someone else they don’t belong here. I was born in England, London and moved to Oxford at the age of 9… I’m probably more British than she is,  however as I’m not white she assumes ” I don’t belong in this country (England) ” now I could sort of understand if she were 80 and “set in her ways” not that an 80 year old telling me I don’t belong here would hurt less, but the woman wasn’t,  this woman could not have been older than 40.

And thirdly,  second hand smoking is just as bad as smoking (I’m not judging people who do) if you are standing next to anyone be it a child,  an adult,  an elderly person or an alien its common courtesy to move if you are smoking. Its not that hard to do and just shows other people that you are actually capable of caring about your fellow human beings.

Let me know what you think
