    then i shall return the favour refuse to believe you and ignore this.



    I have a knife - its in my hand but by your logic because i havent tried to stab you there is no danger. She didnt know what else he was going to do, his next move could have been to punch her in the face, she nor i nor you does not know.
    You really are stretching things now.

    You think people should be able to hit others just incase? Where does that logic lead? huh?

    Edit: nice sneaky edit you did there. Nowhere have I said that she deserved to be assaulted. I have acknowledged multiple times that he did wrong. I just dont think that it gives her a license to do wrong aswell.

    Happened to me before when a guy physically grabbed me. I knew he had mental health issues as you did and his carer just came over and wrenched me free.

    If someone is obviously not right I make allowances for that fact. then again I am not that sensitive. If a guy had grabbed my arse etc I would have struggled

    I dont believe in hitting people (especially unstable ones) as you might just provoke them. I would simply have told his carer and reported the issue to the gym

    If his next move was to punch her in the face I am pretty sure her slapping him would have made the punch even harder :lolwut:

    Because she clearly knew that he was speaking to her. It was plain rude to just completely blank him.
    He's been shouting at me the other times he's been there, then the carer told him I wasn't Anna etc.

    Girls ignore shouting all the time.. It's just the way to deal with it. Should we turn and wave when we are honked at, go and get to know a person who shouts "Hey sexy" and other stuff behind our back, should we go and thank people who whistle at us? No. (Sorry a bit off-topic but that's how girls are used to handle this)

    Anyway, he wasn't "holding my arm casually" as someone said, he grabbed me hard and scared the hell out of me. He was really in my face.

    And yes, that slap I'd say was in a single motion, its what made him let go. It's not like I got loose, stepped back, and went to slap him. Not at all. It's just the general question about if its bad to react normally towards a mentally challenged person.

    Sorry to cause so much discussion between you two.

    He obviously didnt remember.

    Those situations are not comparable to when a person thinks they know you

    Anyway, he wasn't "holding my arm casually" as someone said, he grabbed me hard and scared the hell out of me. He was really in my face.

    I have acknowledged lots of times that he was wrong. But it just doesnt give you the right to do wrong aswell

    And yes, that slap I'd say was in a single motion, its what made him let go. It's not like I got loose, stepped back, and went to slap him.
    You keep changing this

    Not at all. It's just the general question about if its bad to react normally towards a mentally challenged person.
    You didnt react normlly towards him. If he was normal you wouldnt have slapped him because he would have hit you back.

    You don't know what, if anything, was wrong with him. He had someone with him, you had no reason to slap him. Maybe his condition means he can't help it.
