    Default Man Screams at Skater Over a Bush

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbBIsMBugWo

    Can you believe this? So who do you sympathize with in this situation, the skater or the raging shop owner?

    lol pissed off ESTJ for the win...ok ok actually the guy is really overreacting, and the way he is overreacting makes me think STJ....but I can understand that he's trying to run a business, and apparently the skater has ruined not just one, but two bushes. It's vandalism...and the guy is an adult.

    I can see both points of view, but yeah, the store owner is unloading some misplaced anger on that skater. He's acting like he injured a person or an animal rather than a plant.

    Mostly the store owner. It may seem minor, but some skater ripping your bushes up over and over again would be a major irritation. It show a complete lack of respect not just for other peoples property but their right to not be pissed off every five minutes. I mean, the guy isn't asking much, really. Just stop killing his plants. It's like if someone went into guys house and kept nicking the wheels of his skateboard.
    Don't make whine out of sour grapes.

    Yeah, Andy, I noticed that the second time I watched the video - the skater was actually RIPPING the bushes out, it's not like he accidentally knocked it over with careless skater behavior.

    I have not a grain of sympathy for people who scream like that silly shop owner.

    ooh...I like this video. Do you know anything else similar to this?


    Oh and yeah. The two needs to improve their understanding. I can understand the old man's anger but he should realize that anger itself is not his friend. The skater should also try to understand the old guy's situation from a broader perspective.

    Anyways, I sympathize with the skater because the situation reminded me of myself. I also skated before, and I hate it when people group me with what I do.

    If I were the skater, I would come back to reap all the remaining bushes.

    Well, what was the guy supposed to do, approach him politely and say, "Excuse me dear but could I possibly ask you kindly to stop repeatedly destroying my property?"

    Of course the repeated threats of "you don't know how to do the right thing" and "this is criminally deviant behavior" and "you weren't raised right" probably smack of the sort of SJ/NF cooperative community behavior that grates on NT/SP types the most.

    I say stuff like that when I'm mad. Just not about bushes.

    I wonder if he is that stupid, since the police now know his name and address.

    I didn't see that in the video. He was kinda standing there and the guy is yelling immediately.

    Unless you mean what the owner said, which may be an exaggeration, given his state.

    I might need some more context to really come down on either side.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?
