Boat ramp drama!

 

Gday legends.   I took my kids out fishing the other day from the Safety Bay ramp to see what we could get.

Anyway, we got a feed of whiting and a nice snapper. On returning to the ramp, a couple approached me to 

see if we wanted to sell them our snapper. Upon explaing to then politely that its illegal to sell my catch, the verbal avalanche 

we released towards me and my kids. my 12yr old daugher looked at me scared at one point and the guy told her, and i quote,

"shut up you little round eye whore". She refused to even look at the boat for a couple of days and is still pretty upset by it.

 

I hope this is not a regular occurance in the area. Took all the shine off the great morning i had with my kids.

 

Police and Fisheries were notified

Sounds like you showed amazing restraint not to subject your kids to watching dad pummel someone and get arrested. I hope your daughter is alright and it doesn't put her off heading out again.

I know a couple of quiet ramps in Mandurah. Might take her and the boat down there, just for a cruise if nothing else.

I think she will be ok but she still upset.

I have to admit, i did go

Sat, 2019-10-12 17:23

I have to admit, i did go back to see if he was still around after i dropped the boat and my girls off where we have been staying.

Unsure as to what i would have done though as the blood was still boiling at that point.

This is just insane

What on the hell is this place coming to, I'm quite taken back by the remark "you round eye little whore". What ethnicity was he, not that it makes any difference for the remark just curious.
Whoever it was should be very thankful that you have a lot of self control, otherwise he could (would) have suffered some physical inconvenience like being restricted to a soup diet for some time.

I do hope that your daughter gets over this shocking incident and can move on without any lasting effects.

 meglodon, i dont condone

Sat, 2019-10-12 19:45

 

meglodon, i dont condone violence or racism but they were Asian, thinking maybe chinese decent.

The biggest thing that stopped me hitting him right there was the look of fear on my daughters face. 

I think she was already upset and scared enough for me to do anything.

 

On a brighter note, she did enjoy a couple hour cruise through the estuary at Mandurah but she was visibly 

nervous when it came to pull the boat out

 Good thing you let it go,

 Good thing you let it go, don't worry I'd be boiling too. But these kind of 'people' usually carry knives or whatever. Last thing you want is your kids seeing you in a pool of blood.

Whilst knocking his head off

Whilst knocking his head off would be very satisfying, the younger generation has come up with better options that carry far more punishment.

Take a picture on your phone, get the kids working the Iphone videos ect.

Post it on social media, use worlds like bully, racist, homophobe, or non vegeterian / vegan and watch it unravel.

 agreed you did well not to unleash, i too am unsure if i could keep my calm hearing a comment like that. 

Well done though sir, your actions are more mature and a better example for your already scared daughter.  

 

.. an arvo squiding, crusing and an ice cream and hopefully all is well.
