Yesterday I was walking up this world famous shopping area, killing a bit of time before making my way to Edinburgh, at the time and date stated above when suddenly I heard a piercing scream.... Near Poundland, what can only be described as a female junkie smackheid, ran out and shouted "BAAAAAAAAASTARDS!!!!" at the top of her voice. This creature was dressed in shoes,tracksuit trousers,t-shirt and men's suit jacket. She was a jaundicey-looking shade of yellow with straggly hair and very few teeth. To my amusement she then asked several males,who incidently were normal members of the population and quietly going about their business, if "they waaaanted stabbed?". I couldnt believe what I was witnessing and was taken aback that much that I never had the wherewithall to get my mobile phone out and film the whole thing. She continued to threaten folk and threw in a few promises of "Dae ye think ah widnae dae it ya cnut ye?" and " Ah'll dae you,ah've done bigger guys than you, nae bother". One bloke who was sitting reading his paper told her to "Beat it ya eejit" and this made her worse!!! She stormed the length of the street turning round to hurl obscenities and kick trees. The sad thing was no-one seemed really taken that aback by it.... a few minutes later it was as if it had never happened. I myself made it safely in to Waterstones further up the street where I bought "Boy Soldiers" and "The Missing of The Somme" in the Military History section. Have any of our other readers saw scenes of similar uncouthness which sum up the break-down of society in these trying times? Incidentally, I dont come from Glasgow myself.
