Today I had the weirdest encounter but ended up getting really pissed off with a couple of public skaters.
There was a group of Uni age guys. One was strangely dressed as a medieval minstrel and was skating around with a cape and large fake hammer. Him and his group of friends were the kind of overconfident out of control idiots who don't take into account the safety of anyone else. The minstrel was being filmed on a camera by his friend who also wasn't watching where it was going.
I actually said to the rink patrol guy that it wasn't safe (what if he lost the hammer and it went flying and hit someone) and also cameras are banned. He did go and talk to them but it didn't stop them.
As I was practising the minstrel came up and asked me to show him some stuff. To which I replied "I am not a coach". He then kept telling me to show him stuff which I kept saying "I am not a coach" but he got quite snarky about it. Then turned around and his friend was filming me. He put the camera in my face and interview like asked why I wouldn't show his friend anything. Then I got really angry and told him to stop filming and to delete it (I do not want it appearing on Youtube). Thankfully the rink guy also arrived and told him to stop doing and he had already told him once. He did delete it.
Anyway I haven't been that angry at someone for a long time. I don't mind helping people if they ask me but these guys were idiots and I had no desire to help them. But the camera guy was the one who really p*ssed me off. I did not appreciate him filming me and would hate to think what he would have done with it if I hadn't made him delete it.
