Why are you taping my wife?

When we get asked "Why are you taping my wife" its usually related to some late evening encounter on the downs in our van, but here we see it on the streets of Bath in broad daylight. Its long, but funny to listen to.



We particularly like the bit in the conversation where she threatens to report him to the police for assault:
'I'm going to say you were assaulting me!'
'Fine, I've been filming the whole thing'
'I don't care!'
If there's a moral here, don't get upset that someone films you in public. Getting upset just makes it funnier when the video goes online, and more people see it.

24/jan/2012 update; the video has been made private.  Sorry.

Update 2: It's back.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8zqNe0ujwE and here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/9033477/YouTube-roadrage-hit.html

and there's a soundtrack, here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKQm3Wn5Dlk&feature=youtu.be&a

"The video is private."

Oh, that's a shame. It was really funny.

For the record, it was someone blocking a lane in Bath trying to turn into a closed road.

The woman driving got out and started haranging to the person filming (with their phone), asking them why, what's it their business. At one point she says she'll call the police and say he assaulted her -he replies "I'm filming this" and she says "I don't care"

The husband (who has parked somewhere) turns up and as they all walk along he keeps repeating "why are you taping my wife?" again and again and again. It was funny.

Thanks Shawn - I nearly missed out on that treat when the video was made private.

Fat little lumps of the world unite!

I reckon she'll actually get more custom after this - after all, the people who buy wispy little cardigans are a whole other crowd - they may even take pity on her ....

gentlegreen,

Actually, it appears that if the actual reviews of her shop are correct, that she views the smooth-running of her shop to be incommoded by customers.

lovely place is bath... shame it's been slightly blighted by one daft bat. Thankfully it'll all bow over :)
