Hi Ross,
We live in an age where any group of young men hanging out together is deemed to be intimidating. You're not helping.
Must have been uncomfortable reading what people were saying. But you know, you are next to a children's park, and loud swearing is not on in front of young children, and truly makes others uncomfortable. Maybe not your mates, but certainly for parents of young children. If you want to swear, just do it away from a children's park. Seriously. If I am there and you swear in front of my kids you should expect to be asked to stop doing it. Will you?
Pick up your crap, don't drop it.
Otherwise, live and let live.
Someone from just around the corner.

I can appreciate and understand that a group of young men are intimidating, but what i'm saying is you shouldn't be. I cant stress on the point enough that WE ARE NOT THUGS!! I feel i've been very clear on this point and even provided examples of our good nature! I'm not prepared to say it over and over again.
Yes I can see how it would make parents feel uncomfortable when they hear people swear around their kids, after all I have children of my own. And yes of course we would stop if asked, people don't realise that we would understand. Like we said, we will try be more aware of our surroundings and keep the street clear of rubbish. Some said that we look a bit rough, more than likely because you cant dress to meet the queen, just to get caked in grease. People round here are too quick to judge. This whole situation could have been resolved a lot quicker if people didn't kick this off calling us idiots, chavs etc. We get called immature - some of you should aim that to yourself!
Anyway, we've said all we can say. Leaving with that.

I actually think that this is very judgmental and not at all nice. Like me, you dont know Ross, and i'm sure that if you took time out of judging him and moaning on here.. you ould find out that he is probably very reasonable guy..
