I did it!! I was being heckled most unpleasantly on Sunday by a small black Fiat driver who had two small children in the back. he slowed right down and crawled along beside me (thank goodness it was in town), rolled down the window and started with the 'fancy a f***' 'Nice piece of ass' and blowing kisses. I stopped, pulled out a stub of pencil specially put in my bum bag and a scrap of paper and made to note his car numberplate. He actually stopped and got out of his car - I won't describe the state of my bowels at this moment. 'Wot you f***ing doin' he asked in his best local dialect. 'I'm noting your number to report you to the police for kerbcrawling, sexual harrassment and threatening behaviour'. i replied, managing to keep the tremble from my voice.
"Sh**. It was just a bit of fun" was his response before getting back into his car and driving off at high speed.
It took several minutes before i could unglue my feet from the pavement and persuade my legs to walk towards home.
Fine example for his children was my main thought when my brain started working again. I didn't manage to take his full numberplate, but i'll pass it on to a running mate who is a copper and see if he can pay a visit in the line of duty. Hopeuflly that is one driver that won't be hassling runners again.
Not sure if i could be that brave again, though.
I've nearly stopped trembling.
