    Recently my best friend has been hanging around with this group of people who like to hang around the town centre at night, I've only been with them once but they danced in front of CCTV cameras and sat in the market square playing loud music, I found it boring, stupid and also it was freezing. I haven't been out with them since but my best friend has, apparently he has seen fights in mcdonalds and has tried to get chases off the police. I told him I didn't enjoy hanging around town at night and he said that "this is teenage life" and I have to "get used to it". I'm concerned he might get dragged into something bad as I don't really like the group of people he is with and it doesn't seem safe. But also I don't see what is fun about hanging around in the cold in the centre of town at night. What should I say to him to make him see my point of view?

    It's not all about the gangster life, you do your thing and don't get influenced.

    Yes, I would, because I'm not a tight, stuck-up toff. jfc of course it would be TSR to act all high and mighty

    Nothing wrong with getting drunk and hanging around with your friends, as long as you don't do anything illegal, or harass others.

    Nothing wrong with getting drunk (in public) and hanging around with your friends, as long as you don't do anything illegal, or harass others.

    k just add in the (in public) bit. Besides, most police officers don't care if you're drunk unless you're underage or are acting 'disorderly'.

    I use to do things like that and have friends like that.
    Looking back at it, my mum forcing me to leave them was the best thing that ever happened.
    I ended up doing well in education.
    Please do your best and save your friend from that lifestyle, i look back at all those people i use to hang around with when i was 12-16, not one of them made it anywhere.
    Just tell him to give me a call, ill talk some sense into him.

    There was a time when a chav night out wouldn't be complete without downing a litre of white lightning and bricking a shop window. Now they gently gyrate to tinny dance music in front of CCTV and complain about the cold. Kids today....

    He sounds like a real tough cookie :laugh:

    If this is a troll it's a good one. Fine work.

    We can think up a better collective noun than that.

    'An aggression of chavs'?
