Glass Bottle Thrown At Me

Recommended Posts

Guest Angelgrlsue

Hi everyone.

I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this so moderators if you wish to move it to a more appropiate category please do so. I was on my way back to the bus station from my doctor's office today around 4:00pm. Made it to the bus station alright and there was only one other man a few stalls down from where I was sitting on a bus bench that was covered. I did hear some people up above me on the second level laughing a joking around with one another. Was sitting at the bench for about five mintunes when a glass bottle came hurling over my head and landing in front of me breaking into pieces. The bottle was directed right towards. I immediately stood up and walked over quickly to where the man was and asked him if security was around. He said no and he did notice the bottle coming towards me as well, he did not see who threw it though. A bus came in after that and the man offered to ask the driver to call security. He did while he was taking his break. He went into the office building where the bus drivers usually take there breaks. After he came out he stated that he called them and then took off on his route. One bus came after he left and I just boarded my bus, I wanted to get home as soon as possible and not wait around being unsafe there.

I called the LGBT resource center near where I live and talked with a man there that I met before and he suggested I call the bus company tomorrow morning and explain to them in detail what went on. If they are not willing to do anything he will meet me down at the bus station headquarters and speak to them personally. This station that it occured at usually has security there, there was none today.

That's terrible what happened, whether they were aiming it at you or near you or just happened to toss it over without even looking to see if anyone was below. I'm glad you are okay even if a bit shaken by the ordeal.

I also hope this was not a targeted incident and simply some idiot being stupid and as Krisina said, not paying attention where they littered. It just amazes me that there are still people out there with I.Q.'s of onions. And they are procreating on top of it!

I am just glad you are ok and hopefully the bus people will address this promptly.

I would have called the police immediately. The bottle, most likely has finger prints on it regardless of being broken. I am so sorry tha you experienced this. Train stations have video tape security. Perhapss this person is on the tape.

Love.

I agree with Bette. The world keeps procreating more idiots everyday. Mother Nature used to take care of and remove them as unfit, but not anymore. You could have been badly hurt and thats nothing to joke about. We even have more and more agitators on TV spewing hatred and demogogery and completely ignoring the truth. Please be careful. We don't want you hurt.

I called the bus company this morning and talked with Security. He stated that the reason there was no security there anymore is due to budget cuts. All he could do was have a patrol security officer go out there today and investigate. Looks like if this should ever happen again I will either have to call the police or call security and hope they will come at a reasonable time. My other option is to flee the scene. I am doing better today, less shaky. I have noticed myself being more aware of my surrondings and very cautious of people around me, especially on the bus and transit centers where I have to wait to transfer to another bus.

Hugs,

Susan

I am happy to hear you are doing better today. 6.gif Hopefully this was the LAST time this crap happens to you, Susan. But you have some very sound advice that probably ALL of us, natal people included (especially natal women), would do well to consider:

Sorry you had to suffer this attack.. I will never forget a soda being thrown from a car at me as I was biking. What a sticky mess. As well as shock about my fellow "humans". It helps to keep your eyes open and be alert but don't get paranoid. It is too often our manner which brings on difficulties but wakes do exist. Best to you, Charlie

Sorry that happened, are you sure they were throwing it at you. The way you described what happened it sounds like they might of just droped it without intending to hit you with it. I mean you said you heard them joking around and laughing, but you didn't say they were saying anything directed towards you. I would just let it go and if it happens again be more aware of what they're talking about. I'm not trying to make light of the situation; just that it's more than possible by the way that you describe what happened that no harm was intended.

      I agree that we may well not be much better off here in the US.  There is definitely a backlash and in some areas or with certain demographics our safety doesn't exist.  Fortunately there are also many who are much more accepting than ever.  I have to look at that bright side. A bit of a Pollyanna ?   Hugs,   Charlize

      Sad to say, this is running about the same as it is here in the U.S. and may not be as bad in a couple of places, but still it is pretty bad overall.  Great Britain has about the same stats on H8ers, minus the KKK of course, but the Fundamentalist and Roman Catholic influences are used as the same excuses to just plain hate from what I have heard.

      https://inews.co.uk/news/uk/third-transgender-people-victim-hate-crime/   This is very troubling, but given the very negative press and public opinions, hardly surprising.  The question is, what, if anything, will be done about it?   Carolyn Marie

      Seat belts are not required but highly advised.  Actually i took me time to feel much and even then changes were slow and subtle.  Enjoy your journey!   Hugs,   Charlize

      Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.    Hugs    Shawnna
