7 signs he’s a roadman 


Roadman comes from the 21st century slang word, describing a boy (normally at a teenage to middle age) as someone who thoroughly knows the ins and outs of his area, and the people in the area – he will also be involved in all popular events in the area.

1. He looks up at the upper deck of every bus he walks past.

2. You’ve never seen him without a hat.

3. He refers to himself in the third person.

4. He wears jean trousers that ‘throw up’ all over his trainers.

5. He doesn’t show his face in selfies. Yes. Selfies.

6. He’ll reply 10 hours later to your messages as he didn’t have enough data and didn’t want to use it all up…whilst on road.

7. When being asked about his future aspirations, the usual reply is always: “Yo, I’m just happy to be alive man.”
Believe me ladies, these men exist. Everyone has a type I guess, but if you have a smart head on your shoulders, these are the least type of men you should ever affiliate yourselves with.


Let’s not bring any road men any further into our 2016, okay?


*Disclaimer: this blog post was purely for entertainment purposes even though this is a reality for the men I’ve seen over several years, mostly aged 13-35 and living in London.
