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.

      Sounds like you are doing very well.  Back when I started things out on the name change, I could not do the gender change until after GCS.  Several months after my GCS and all the changes for me made, they changed the laws -- for the better -- so I would not have had the long drawn out  program that I had to do.  Keep your head high and you will make it, and laugh about all of the hassle.

      Welcome Skye. As many have said it takes time to figure things out so taking your time will allow you to find the right fit for you.    Laura Beth

      I have been wanting to legally change my name and gender marker for close to a year now. I am now divorced and living as a female as much as possible which has it complications. Today I went to see my regular doctor for a refill of my pain killers; I was dressed as Laura as I usually do since starting my transition. I have to go by my male name there because they won't use my preferred name like I do at my gender doctor's office. The doctor's nurse comes out and basically stands next to me and asks the front desk clerks if I had checked in for my appointment using my male name. She is told that I have so turns around and calls my name, to which I get up. She has a bit of a stunned look on her face and leads me to the examining room to wait for the doctor. I get my new prescription from the doctor and leave to pick it up at the pharmacy. When I get to the pharmacy the assistant pharmacist has some fun trying to find me in the system due to me going by Laura there and the name on the prescription was in my male name.    Before I have to see the doctor again which shouldn't be for about three or four months I will have to get the name change and gender marker taken care of.  I should also get it done before I see the psychiatrist this summer some time. I have started to receive mail in my preferred name which I was afraid was being sent back for some reason. As I posted else wheres my counselor has told me I am doing well at picking out appropriate outfits to wear that will help me fit in. The hormones have been a blessing in many ways, from slowing facial hair growth, allowing me to relax better mentally and changing my body physically.    Laura Beth

      Being safe online is definitely top priority but I think online dating can be done safely. I have a friend who is a cis woman who went on a few dates with a trans guy before he told her he was trans. Once he told her, she immediately called me to tell me about it and she was really sweet, if a little misinformed. She just kept saying, "but he's so HOT. He's definitely a man!" I had to roll my eyes and tell her that yes, trans men are men and can be just as conventionally attractive as cis men. Last I heard they were still dating and it was going great

      I love your stories, Charlize! I once had a friend who owned a red Nissan. His had big tires and looked more like a man-toy. I still miss my first Toyota (new), which got excellent mileage and didn't need a single repair in 135,000 miles. The second was geared for towing and guzzled gas. There's a huge auto show going on in Detroit over the next week and I hope to go and caress a few truck fenders   Gwen

      I can get why your friend is down. Dating for a cis man is hard (at least according to my own anecdotal experience). i dated with a male presentation for 1 month after separating from my ex wife but before coming out as a trans woman.   How many woman I actually dated? 0 To how many woman I talked online? 0   Dating is hard if you are not super pretty, lol

      I find that topic interesting.   Ok, I get that that's dangerous but more and more dating work with online dating sites. I personally make sure the other person know i'm transgender as soon as possible and I chat with this person for quite a bit before meeting in a neutral place with plenty of people. I'm not that active in dating because that's something that confuses me a lot but I had a couple of dates and it worked 1 or 2 times already.   I don't want to mislead people but at least here in Canada I don't have the impression that it's more dangerous for a trans woman then for a cis woman. My ex had a couple of dates too and I would say that she had stranger stories then me.   My feeling is that if you have an active life and you wait to find someone in real life you can wait a lot since there's so much people dating online.   to me the advantage of dating online is that I can put a transgender flag with "proud to be trans" written on it and write that I had the surgery in my description. I call that my "douchebag filter" In real life it can be more awkward and take too much time for the other person to know and ending up being more dangerous.   Dating only trans people, at least here in my local community, do not seem like a realistic option since we are too few. Finding the right person would be next to impossible...   well, that was my 2 cents on that. I,m actually surprised by the comments so far.
