  1. Oh,I can’t be arsed!

  2. well done – this is precisely where we need people like robert to make themselves heard, and make it clear that they will not be treated like sh*t. If it’s still visible – get new paintwork and charge it to the offending company.

  3. Bloody right they will lose customers

  4. I bet he had one of those little pink Nissan Micras though.

  5. It is outrageous that people still think they can get away with such discriminating behaviour. I am glad they did finally complain. Too many people let this behaviour go and I can understand that creating a fuss is not desirable but unless people do things will not change for all. It’s ignorant people like this attendant who carry on getting away with homophobic acts that need to be shown this will not be tolerated.

  6. People shouldn’t have to put up with abuse like this. It’s not even homophobia that’s an issue how about just be professional.

    Those pens leaving marks would make me vey angry to.

  7. Lmao Paul :D

  8. Sounds like a new paint job will fix everythign. Here in the USA, that will set you back about $2000-$3000.

    It will be nice to see that kid working for nothing for the next three mos to pay it off.

  9. Maybe someone should daub “wanker” on the car attendant’s car roof, see how he likes being the butt of a poor joke.

    A small point on employment law here, I’d be very surprised in the attendant fulfilled the HMRC requirements for self-employed status these days. They have long closed the loophole of people evading tax by claiming self employed status for every job imaginable.

  11. No excuses for doing it, but I think it’s pretty obvious here that an arrow wasn’t needed. If it was a police officer in the car however and they wrote ‘pig’ with an arrow, I think they’d be slapped with an instant fine.

  12. I think a lot of gay people are tolerant of the abuse they get. Many, like myself in the past, have just brushed it off as if to be expected. However there comes a time when you have to say enoughs, enough and weither its instant or sometime after we have to make people realise it is not acceptable.

  13. ‘Dont make a fuss and it will go away.’ I use to abide by this rule especially were the young are concerned but I’ve come to the conclusion that it doesn’t work. Insulting language or graffiti isn’t acceptable – report it whenever it occurs otherwise things will never change.

    Sounds like Criminal Damage aggravated by Homophobic Hate. Have Thames Valley Police been notified….? They have an obligation to accept this report. There is even a direct suspect. This could easily be further resolved – at magistrates court level.. and with damages if not already provided.

  15. If the bloke was gay,then whats all the fuss about. And if person was so aggravated by all this so called upset then why didnt he report it to the police ?
    Sounds to me like customer thought he could cash in on this but not man enough to follow proper channells. Wimp
