So Oscar just got picked up to go to school.
When his driver, J, arrives he peeps the horn if we’re not already out the front.
This morning there was a hell of a lot of peeping.
When we got out there there was a guy with a helmet on standing next to J’s window having an argument with him.
Something had clearly happened.
The next thing I know his helmet is off and he’s opening J’s door and it appears to be game on.
His postie bike (which he was obviously riding and which – obviously – J had not seen) then went over and OMG things all went bad very quickly.
I believe J told him to ‘suck my dick’ which granted probably didn’t help matters.
By then I was imploring him to calm down, that there was a child there, that the child had special needs and then I started crying.
Oscar was cring, I was crying, J and The Guy were still having words, now a little less heated but only just.
Then two of the lads who live next door and make my weekends hell by NEVER SLEEPING but play basketball with Oscar EVERY.SINGLE.AFTERNOON. came out and said, ‘Are you OK Oskie?, which really just made me cry even more.
Then The Guy got his bike going and rode off and we all tried to calm down.
Oscar was so upset, I was so upset (still am), J was very apologetic but remarkably calm (I offered him the chance to come inside, regroup, have a cup of tea) and once I got Oscar to a point of being OK, off they went.
I believe this falls into the category of ‘not an ideal way to start the day’.
