regale me with tales and anecdotes xx
he was a prick.
He used to play for Man City. Regularly threatened with assault, stabbing, bottling - sounded like a fucking nightmare.
Then he became a bouncer.
who I no longer keep in touch with
unfortunately all I've come across from either going out or knowing people socially who work as bouncers have been pricks.
I don't know a dormouse.
Being kindly asked to leave pubs rather than being barred in the past.
as though your ejection from the pub at some point is an inevitability.
he was a total babe, a bit of a hipster (skinny not a beefcake type). He slept with someone else and emigrated a week later unannounced.
Builder pranks are insane. And things can get very ugly when psychos don't like eachother.
If you run nights they are the best people to have on your side. Fine and friendly when you talk to them, utter psychopaths when they get the opportunity.
he says there are a lot prostitutes at the posh hotel he works at.
<3 you Dave.
he once did a rap about my dad whilst i was in the queue, liek freestyling
I have no idea how he knows my dad - or how he knows that my dad IS my dad.
I half think i've imagined this
Big Nige - As the name implies, massive. Now drives a monster truck style vehicle and has a studio in his back yard.
Parker - Crazy bastard whos eyes are the blackest black known to man
Kev - Worked at the social, lived on a houseboat, stopped speaking to me when he found out I was student.
Jay - Nutcase, once headbutted a man with an axe
Derren - guy who also worked at the social, once threw a guy through the massive doors. met him when he came to a talk at the museum I was working at
do you mean he hit someone in the head using an axe
he headbutted someone who had an axe
he taped an axe to head and headbutted someone with it
Also used one of my top 5 phrases 'Just layt nut on em' when asked for any advice regarding anything
good story though
Between the ages of about 15 & 19, i used to go to a nightclub in Leigh every Friday and Saturday night. There was a guy on the doors who had a fearsome reputation, he was a massive meathead, and loved fighting and would gladly take on four or five people. He used to intimidate younger people, take their drugs off them, sell them to the dealers, etc, etc. He was a bit of a shagger as well, even had a room in the club where he'd take girls in to service them, etc, etc. He ended up fucking with the wrong woman, though, and she got up on the mic one night when absolutely mullered and told the entire club that he was properly into having dildos rammed up his arse. No-one ever took him seriously after that and he just sort of disappeared.
these might've been on Phoenix Nights.
Could never get in Reubens, and the properly hard lads went to Barbarellas.
It was fucking ROUGH. Came very very close to a quite serious battering once before realising I went to school with one of our assailants. Fucking pricks.
he's an absolute fuckin chopper like the rest of the bullying cunts.
but when i was at Uni, 3 of my very good friends worked the door. They were massive pot-heads and very rarely got involved in any fisticuffs.
Glee club (comedy, shabs and bants in Birmingham)
Some dodgy club in Nuneaton
Couple of Student Unions in Perry Barr and Handsworth area
He used to work at Sound Control, dunno where he works now. He's into MMA and thai boxing and that. He's a great big softy, <3 him. It never fails to surprise people when I say my mate's a cage fighter as well
The current one is soft as shite - he does performance poetry in his spare time, in addition to teaching kids Tae Kwon Do to kids. He hates it and only got into it a gap filler. He's been doing it almost 20 years now. I think maybe the job chose him rather than vice versa as he is 6 foot 4, dreadlocked and built.
A mate of mine worked as a doorman while at uni. I don't think he had any particular aptitude for the job apart from being big. Has a bit of a hair trigger temper though so amazing that he never battered anyone.
Which reminds me, the first lad who has been doing it for 20 years reckons he's never hit anyone in all that time.
We met him on a night out there and yeah he was fucking huge, and a really nice guy. We were chatting to him and he was like *Ah boys, I quit last week*
*O! What you off to do?*
*I'm going to America actually. Got a contract to become a wrestler*
The English among us found that quite funny. Yeah big time mate, let us know how that goes for ya lol
