I'm really not sure where to put this and so apologies if it's in totally the wrong forum. The other day I was in Tesco. One of those enormous ones! There's a woman who works in there who's worked there for years and has known me for a similar amount of time. I don't go in there much these days, always afraid of bumping into my wife and upsetting her somehow! The other day I went in there for something and this woman came up and said hallo, said she'd heard about what happened to me and how was I etc. All very benign and fine. This other shopper, a man, must have overheard what we were talking about. I didn't say anything specific, just talked mostly about my leg and that sort of thing. I went to walk off with my trolley and this man who'd been earwigging came up and spat at me. I was stunned and just stared at him in surprise. He then started spouting off about how it was all my own fault, we shouldn't be in Iraq etc. etc. (you know the rest!) and then he walked off. He never asked me where I'd served or what my opinions about any of it were. He just spat at me. This probably sounds ridiculous to most of you, I mean, who cares? Stupid man etc. But it really shocked me. I honestly didn't know how to respond (I'm ok with the 'I was in the SAS-types down the pub as I happily laugh at them but this was something else. Is this what the great British public really think of us then?
