Do you find yourselves getting pissed on from behind because of your height?
On the street t'd be quite unfortunate!
On the street's just be unlucky.
Fuck short people.
had a squirt on from behind at a KOL gig. When I turned around he ran away and I never saw him again. Wonder how he is?
Surely its harder to hit tall people.
I'd probably say, it serves you right for going to see KOL. But I won't.
Who aims there? Bad experiences?
Whats height got to do with it?
To be honest it doesn't suprise me at a KOL gig with there current radio 1 lad friendly rock branding is always going to bring a set of wankers to the audience.
Is it common for a tall person to get moved out of the way by someone pissing on them? In one way we're ruining the view. In another, it's a gig so why can't (smaller) people move for themselves?
I'm fairly tall, and I get the occasional look of "move you tall eejit" but generally people are nice.
KOL and these big arena/stadium events are the type of gigs which people attend to get drunk and score some office cool points. You always get some pissed wankers who don't know how to handle themselves, like at festivals.
Here's my opinion: A band whose fans feel okay about getting it out and having a piss on someone during a gig are a band not even remotely worth listening to.
Unless that band are Anal Cunt, then it's okay.
id deck the shrimp. come earlier of you want a better space
but i don't think i'd ever piss on anyone (although now you've put the idea into my head... )
i still find it pretty amazing that people kick tall guys to get them out of the way. it can be pretty frustrating when i can't see anything, but usually a bit of manoeuvring can get around that - thus, i tend to get more annoyed by people with big hair who keep moving from side to side, so i can never just find one good place to stand >:(
yet I always manage to get someone bigger than me in front of me.
It's either that or the crazy guy who takes pogoing/moshing far too seriously.
do people actually let the person get away with it?
i'm tall. i don't understand how it's an issue, instead of standing directly behind someone, manouevre yourself so you're inbetween 2 in front. it's simple economics
sorry that was meant to be reply to the main post
if someone pissed on me or tried to kick me out the way, i would knock the utter fuck right out of them ... but if they asked nicely i'd probably move over or let them go in front of me
im 6" 6, but i will politely move if you ask me to. I have the few instances where I have had people wanting to fight me, but thats what you get for been a northerner i guess.
I try to stay out the way, standing mostly at the side if I must. I get a couple of people asking normally, nobody ever really rude.
