You are walking across the market square of a small town. Itis a Saturday afternoon and weather is fine. In the centre of the square are a number of young people. There are 3 or 4, probably 18 or 19 years of age who are sat on their mopeds with their helmets sitting on the back of their heads, smoking cigarettes and talking loudly. A radio plays music on the ground nearby.
Close to these there are another group of maybe 8 to 10, a few years younger but they have pedal cycles because they are not old enough for mopeds. A couple of these are furtively smoking. Their cycles are laying around the ground. They are talking loudly and copying the behaviour of the older youths.
An old lady, I estimate to be in her 80’s is walking across the square carrying two bags of groceries.
As she approached the group of young people something happened.
What do you think it was ?
