Today a lovely friend of mine was walking towards the Canberra Centre to buy her lunch when a man approached her (and without asking her for anything) he spat on her and ran off. Naturally, she was very upset and shaken, but she was also incredibly embarrassed and went home, showered and returned to work. Apparently other people saw this and ignored it.
I know a few people on this site work in Civic, so if you see someone spitting at people, please don’t ignore it – if you’re in a hurry all you need to do is call the police when you get back to work. Just tell them you’ve witnessed a situation and give them a description so we can get creeps like this off our streets.
