Today, i'm not sure if i did the most horrible thing to these 2 small lads or if they deserved what i did.
Monday 17th December 2007, it is 5.30pm, and I hear a knock on my door. I answered to find these kids singing "we wish you a merry xmas" to me. At this point I was so bemused and confused as i assumed they we're just chavs playing a prank on random homes. I gave them approximetely 5 seconds before i slammed the door in their faces.
Now, that was an almost instant reaction, only seconds later i could hear them from outside, almost in tears and discussing their disbelief that someone would do such a thing on xmas. Only seconds later i realised that maybe they were actually genuinely trying to spread christmas cheer to some Southampton residents (student residants mind). I then went outside to see if they we're still about so i could apologise to them, but they were gone.
I now feel like such a horrible person to just rudely slam the door at a couple of kids' faces. Even if they we're just having a laugh, trying to cause mischief then its not the end of the world. They are just kids after all.
I'll learn to give carol singers more time to do their bit, and to appreciate their standards in the future, because that is the first time something like that has happened to me.
In a way i do hope they were chavs trying to cause trouble, cos that way i wont feel as bad as i do right now.
Merry christmas everyone!
