Gypsy - The mean and scary tarot card reader who freaked out on me.
I was getting a reading because I was upset that my daughter had been abused. She asked me who did it and I told her the detective referred to the people as Gypsies only they're from Iran. She told me that there are no Gypsies in Iran. I let her know that I was just answering her question. She stood up and refused to read for me and said, "I can't believe I'm hearing this in this day and age. I'm a Gypsy and it's not a culture it's a race! Get out!" Serves me right for going to a Tarot card reader. So to me, the only gypsy I ever met is an angry, scary person with a quick temper who jumps to conclusions. She told me "all white people own slaves!"

Many of the modern day gypsies/travellers are in fact not poor and scummy as described in some definitions,many are in fact richer than you would ever dream and are not seen out unless in designer clothes, with the latest cars,phones and jewellery. By day perhaps wearing their working clothes but are transformed when they want to make an impression,this is when the people dont even know they are gypsies!
when you see a good looking dark skinned man or woman looking like a film star,designer clothes,sunglasses driving a convertible, think twice this is probably a modern day traveller/gypsy

Traditionally, from Romania gypsies have now spread to the UK and mostly speak in an annoying Irish-English dialect. Most of them steal anything they can get there hands on, con people and scam then into doing a shitty tarmac job for their drive. They live in caravans in fields and have about 50 cousins and are probably in-bred. After all they all look the same; scraggy dark hair (lots of it), which probably doesn't get cut. They wear stupid chav clothes and fake burberry. Also known as a (stupid fucking) pikey.
(Gypsy hobbles over drunkedly someones drive and knocks the door)
Random man: (opens door) Yeah?
Gypsy: (in weird irish/english/farmer accent) Are yous intrested in some tarrrrmaaacc?
Random man: (looks blank) No.
Gypsy: (Walks away wearing a flat cap covering his dark greasy hair, trampy clothes and wellies that have "been in the family for years" (yeah...) and a trampy jumper/tracksuit top covering his abnomally hairy arms)
Random man: (thinks to self) stupid fucking pikey)

Gypsy then retreats to his untaxed van filled with stolen scrap metal to sell it on to his stupid gypo friends.

a Gypsy is a race who really has no back round but has a bad reputation. there is some bad and there is some good. but they all live in houses and they are all civilized. and there race is going down the drain. 80% of them are christian. there is more and more gypsy men and woman going to college and getting a 9 to 5 job. and some are pastors and work for church's i should know iam a Gypsy who is in high school. but iam still in touch with my back round. they are very interesting people. most of them own there own houses. and most of them are located in heavy populated city's such as LA NY and Miami.
i dont know alot about gypsys history but i do know that they used to travel and live in camps. but sence the 60s they have all grown out of that and got there own houses.
we all drive normell cars (not carriage's)
just like any other race we have are good's and are bad's
Guy: those Gypsy's are getting modern everyday
Girl: oh yeah i know there backround is very interesting
Guy: yeah they still have there good's and bad's
Girl: yes, but every race is like that.

A person of low class who lives in all of europe and other various places that travel a lot and in packs, usually. They will mostly come to you in busy places like around churches because they think since you are christian, or somethign to do with the church, then you will be kind enough to give them money or anyhting else for that fact. The women go around in dark rags and ask for money while the children or other female gypsies pick-pocket you. While the men usually are just laying on the side of the street. Some even come to you with signs that say to give them money. There are many different kinds of gypsies, but they are all very cool.
gypsy- do you have any money for me?
heather- o yah h.o just let me open my phany ill give you ten euro.
(gypsy looks through pack finding forty more euro)
heather- ooo ok ...
(gypsys start to crowd around the good find)

A traveller who doesn't have a proper residence because:
#1: there homes were taken away,


#2:They choose to live like that.

Whoever said they are loaded, thats complete bullocks, coz if they were they would buy a house with the money.

Gypsies are cool, and aren't dirty and not all of them are Eastern Europeans.

Respect them.
Gypsies Travel around the Globe.
