    I do not know if this is the right area to post, so please move it if it's wrong thread area. :)

    Today I was attacked by a woman just after I got off the bus. Her reason for attacking me. I wear a facemask.

    She claimed to be a nurse, and she screamed at me how stupid I am for wearing a facemask.....
    So I stood there silent, waiting for her to be finish with her rant about me, my mask and how brainwashed I am :confused:

    So she got more and more angry when I kept silent. And suddenly without warning she hit me in my stomach and in my face, ripping my facemask off me, and stomped on it :facepalm:
    I picked it up, put it in my pocket, and pulled out a new mask and put it on.

    Then I said, it is totally ok you have your opinion, but I have my own reason for wearing mask.
    She got so mad she creamed so loud that other people come to take her away.

    Poor lady. I wish her well, and hope she do not get sick.

    Good on you @Amanaki , both for wearing the mask, and for not destroying your confused/insane attacker. Also for having the back-up mask. Nice.

    I hope you filled a police report. You got assaulted in the street by a crazed woman. she's danger to others; you could have gotten seriously hurt.

    I am not mad at her for attacking, but wonder why some very few people get that mad when all I do is to protect my self and others by using the mask.

    Honestly I did not do that, but one of the guys who took her away did report her, and yes I gave my name and answer to the police when they arrived.

    I think it is important to try our best to keep calm when something like this happen.
    Maybe I would be more shaken if it had been a big guy who attacked me :)

    People who are angry want a response not silence. They want you to do something which they can use to justify their out of control emotion. But of course that's no reason to give them what they want.

    A number of people appear to be having breakdowns due to the stress of the pandemic. Perhaps that is what happened to her, not that that excuses her hitting you. I'm glad you're okay. Please be careful. We all need to be careful these days.

    Maybe she has mental issues. Bipolar or something. getting violent over a facemask doesn't seem normal.

    I'm glad you are ok. Clearly she has some issues that need to be resolved. Violence like that is never excusable, though.

    You feel it was ok for her to attack me? Or am I misunderstanding you?
