Did these women not learn the kindergarten rule of not invading other's personal space? To pull your hair continuously is bad, to cut it off, I would be fucking livid. I'm pretty sure at that point it counts as assault and they can be charged.

People are so childish and dumb as hell. I know you're upset, but at least hair grows back. Probably the last thing you want to hear. Their stupidity will probably last forever if they think it's cute to cute a strangers hair. Thankfully they didn't do something worse with those scissors. Sorry OP.

#59, how exactly can "fuck off" be taken literally? I understand fuck you, but unless your fucking on the back of a horse into the sunset, it's be hard to fuck off

Did they at least have the courtesy to make it look nice? Also why do they have scissors and/or a sharp object with them on public transportation?

I, like many people, carry a knife or multi-tool at all times due to their usefulness. I don't cut people's hair though, unless they ask:-).

If I have pants on, I'm carrying a knife. I live and work on a farm, so it's a 'sharp edged farm tool' not a weapon. Other than some very specific incidences and reasons, I've carried one since I turned 12.

#13 and #32. OP is from the UK. It's illegal to carry any kind of blade or sharp object here in public, even if it's a tool.

That's not strictly true; you can legally carry scissors or any blade shorter than three inches in your pocket over here (like the ones on a Leatherman or Swiss Army Knife)

It's assault in Canada too, and we sometimes have similarities in laws with the UK. At the very least, the hair pulling would be assault, non consensual hair pulling would hurt, which would classify as bodily harm to the person. Also, they came at the OP with scissors, which even if they're only cutting hair, it could still be seen as an intent to harm.

It would technically be considered "assault and battery". Assault is defined as actions which indicate the intent to do bodily harm. Battery is the actual action. So, a wind-up before a punch is assault (not battery), but after the punch is thrown, it's then assault and battery. :)

Most busses have cctv - get the police and driver to look at it and identify the women - then charge them and get compensation and hopefully they will also get a sharp lesson in treating people like human beings

Apparently 175 people knew that it was a typo and actually understood what I was trying to say. If you didn't, I don't know how to help you.

It's not like she has nerves on her hair. Cutting hair is painless as long as you are careful not to pull. She could have had on earphones or the bus was loud and therefore she couldn't hear the snip. And it's the hair on the back of her head so it's not like she could see it. I don't find it difficult to see why she didn't notice until she got home. My real question is why the heck nobody told her. Cutting someone's hair would be pretty obvious to people around them, unless it wasn't a full bus
