Little respect for us elderly

LANGUAGE students are a source of income to our town. That may be true but their behaviour leaves much to be desired.

Gangs monopolise the pavements completely oblivious to the fact other pedestrians need to go in the opposite direction.

As a senior citizen I am concerned for those who are frail which thankfully I am not. Recently I was pushed off the kerb by some lads and on an earlier occasion I was flung round by another group.

Had it not been that I was pushed into a shop window, I would have fallen over backwards.

They also congregate on the station concourse in large groups which is necessary, but unaware other people need to pass. They have to be the first to board a bus, regardless of the queue.

Do those who arrange for their visits not have any opportunity to teach them some manners, at least common courtesy and respect?
