Since living out here, it has come to my attention that there’s one thing I really don’t miss. Pikeys and chavs. In the UK they would hang around McDonalds, street corners, and parks like stubborn limescale from a sink.
You literally couldn’t miss them back in the UK, they’re just all over the place, public transport, shopping centers, cinemas, you name it. It not just the ghastly sight of them that’s disturbing – it’s worse when they open their mouth and speak, just foul language second after second.
It’s nice to know when I get on a bus here in LA, I won’t harassed by a bunch of uneducated 12 year olds.
I’m sure they do exist out here, but I’m not the one to go out and find them.
