and subsequently did you feel like a twat about it?
Tell us why you had a little cry ffs
it was cos i tried to buy 2 bottles of beer but i was with my 23 year old gf, my 59 year old dad and my 16 year old sister and obv my sister didn't have ID.
you need to chillax a bit
hahaha i never get angry, i'm a mellow cushion
I know you're a big man around town but you'll need to get your story straight when this gets back to the pigs mate
i'm visiting my old home, i guess this is like a south west episode of bonnie and clyde but with guns replaced by DiS style bedwetting anger
he has no evidence at all that it's a proxy purchase.
Not sure there's anything I care about enough to lose my shit over.
And no I didn't feel like a twat afterwards.

to lose your shit tbh.
it was the venue/pub's opening night and the cubicle door wouldn't open. I was pretty drunk so when the staff eventually managed to remove the lock and kick the door in, instead of thanking them I just shouted "FUCK SAKE" and stormed out to watch the end of the last song.
Opened his car door into the side of my brand new car HARD. I got out in disbelief and when he didn't immediately apologise:
Me: uh, I think you just slammed your car door into the side of my car
Him: shrugs, there's no damage
Me: that's not the point, you need to take more care over other peoples property
Him: but I'm parked within the lines
Me: (getting more and more angry) that's not the point!!!
Him: (eyeing me like I'm a mad woman) look, if it makes you feel better, I'll move my car over there
Genuinely had to sit in my car for 5 minutes to calm down, if he'd apologised immediately and said it was an accident I would've been all no problem, but he really didn't give a shit. The amount of times this has happened over the last year is staggering.
I got off the tram at the wrong stop, realised as soon as I got off, and stepped straight back on.
The old lady who was doing the ticket conduction - and who had sold a ticket to me literally 5 minutes earlier and seen me walk off and on - said the tram wasn't moving until I bought a new ticket because I hadn't scanned it as I got off.
I explained the situation to her and received absolutely no sympathy. I then went to dig in my pocket for some change, realised I had none and that the only alternative was to get off the tram and walk home in the rain.
Meanwhile, everyone was getting in a proper huff about the tram not moving.
At this point, I got in a proper temper, said "oh fuck off, you bitch", and flipped her off as I exited.
I simultaneously felt awful at saying such a thing to an old lady, and yet completely justified by my response.
she deserved that sweary gesture.
I know I lost the moral high ground, but I walked home with a massive grin on my face for giving it to the old cow.
GF's parents visiting. On the subway. Her dad is too slow for the barrier. Attendant demands he but another ticket, rather than saying 'yeah, fair enough, you've got a ticket' and letting him through the gate manually. I tell the guy to get tae fuck.
(Wrote ^this with added detail and drama but the site ate it so meh.)
people tear into moousee below for similar. you lost your shit and were extremely rude and aggressive and used a gendered insult to a woman doing her job. that's not something to be proud of. idk if you've ever been intimidated at work but its not nice.
Just wound them up a lot then couldn't stop laughing about it, was very drunk but still a joy.
never saw it again
and give them names?
Guy at reception said it costs £20 to have one. Felt like saying 'jesus fuck' in front of him. Wish I did.
everyone should be getting them for free obvs though thru NHS
like in fantastic Scotland
when me and the thinly veiled were there last month. Gave the tosspot behind the bar £11 and he goes 'Oh no no, price is £13.50 - you must pay service charge'.
I, having seen the optional charge already on the menu and taken out exact change because fuck paying service charge for a fucking pint in a fucking bar said 'Yeah thats optional. You want to know who doesn't pay your poxy service charge? This guy'(pointing to me)
He said something along the lines of 'But you must pay - you must pay bill'
I said something along the lines of 'Why don't you give me two empty glasses and I'll piss in those and then we'll be even, ey, "mate"?'
Don't think it classifies as 'losing my shit' but I proper love describing things as 'your poxy...' Sounds so rude without being at all offensive
I'd be pure raging too, but probably without the American-Italian gangster acting.
I went to see gravity and the guy at the stairs directed us to the wrong screening, just in time to see the last scene of the film. I went back and told him and he laughed and said 'oh yeah it's in that one' and pointed in a different direction. I called him 'a fucking prick' and stormed down to the front counter. Got plenty of free shit and hopefully got him sacked (he won't really have been sacked but I genuinely wish he had been). I don't mind when people make mistakes, but to then act like such a wanker about it afterwards, no remorse.... I'm getting pissed off thinking about it now.
My girlfriend was all like 'you called him a fucking prick!!' and I was like 'yeah but he was...' and she was like 'oh yeah, he was'
I imagine he wasn't even disciplined, they probably asked him if he was ok, apologised to for having an abusive customer and told they can go home early
in a theme park in australia. he deserved it though
Dunno if I could muster remorse for something like that, and laughing is just a standard way of easing tense situations
for ruining a film for someone, when you work at the place showing it? Then you, sir, are a complete fucking cunt.
Personally I would, maybe this guy just wasn't quick thinking enough to realise the appropriate response, and seeing the end if the film was just bad luck and totally understandable to get confused between two screenings plus ruin the film? You didn't think she would make it back? If I were him I would have asked you as a customer to be banned for using that language with him, totally unacceptable
The language is unacceptable but so were his actions. When I've paid nearly £25 for something I'm not going to be treated like a dick by someone after they have made a glaring error. Like I said, just needed an apology. I used to work in Mcdonalds, I know what it is like to be spoken to like that, but if you provoke it by literally laughing in someone's face when you have already cunted up their experience, you deserve all that you get.
He was in the wrong but you were worse
but you didn't see how he acted, so your judgement is bullshit.
Unless he was as abusive to you as you were to him which by your description I personally think you words cannot be justified, abusive language like that is borderline a criminal offenders he was just rude
Oh wait I have once but it was totally justified
Yeah but it was in response to something non borderline so justified, unlike not appearing sufficiently remorseful or laughing
what criminal offence you think swearing at someone, is bordering?
I worked for the police doing their victim of crime survey for two years, verbal assault was one of the crime types we surveyed, level if threat/intimidation was probably shy of the threshold hence borderline but I have certainly seen cases treated as a crime as it is down to the other persons perception
Like "you stupid cunt", you could be prosecuted? Or would it have to be something like "I'll kill you, you cunt?"
Not sure exactly how it works but it is something like if the victim feels intimidated threatened harassed or distressed then it is a crime, and it is based on their perception not some objective standard, not sure how likely to get a prosecution
I hope you got a slice of toast with that
and laughing it off is the correct response, it doesn't really matter that you saw an extra bit of the film.
You mean the end of the film. I never claimed that it wasn't a mistake. I don't think that he was purposefully pointing people into the wrong screening, but to be faced with someone who is obviously peeved, who explains what has happened to him, and then for him to laugh, in their face and shrug is going to rile anyone. Laughing at someone is not the right thing to do, it is what you do to inflame the situation.
that they know how they would react in situations. :D sooooo DiS
Hopefully most people wouldn't have the entitled attitude that the poor sod gets sacked and would at least be grown up enough to be able to keep the naughty words in their head and just get on with their day.
Ever worked a customer service job? If so, you should know better.
Imagine being this upset about having the ending of Gravity spoiled by accident...
Clearly previously stated that it was how he reacted that elicited the response. Actually I've worked mainly in customer service in my time. Till just a couple of years ago. If I had have ever acted towards anyone in the way that he did, then I would fully expect to be on the arse end of a mouthful.
back in days of VCR. Forgot I hadn't rewound it and managed to play it just at the crucial standoff between Al and Rob at the end. Thankfully my mates just laughed cos it wasn't a big deal and nobody had a little tantrum about it
is a cunt of the highest order? cheers.
NEVER EVER RIGHT TO SWEAR AT SOMEONE WHILST THEY ARE ON DUTY. NEVER EVER RIGHT.
there's really not a decent reason to. just makes everyone around think you're a twat.
yes, unless they're a bouncer
thats a pretty funny situation though too.
got really arsey with a guy in a takeaway once cause I found a piece of glass in my chips and he wouldn't give me a refund. had a massive argument with my (ex)boyfriend outside a Buddhist temple and he punched me and I burst out crying. shouted at a guy on a train for feeling me up.
tend to try not to tell people off for things in public cause its really anxiety inducing for me when someone overreacts or shouts at me (times when this has happened I've had a panic attack and its ruined a whole day).
and I had to walk home in just my dress when it was -5 ❄
he was a friend of a friend so I ended up getting it back - found out where he lived and went round with a few mates - told him if he didnt give it back I'd shove a pint glass down his throat and stamp on his neck -I had no intention of doing any violence to him but it was proper badman ting
To get a handle on his anger issues, before anyone else gets hurt!!!1!1!1
a kid I was friends with at the time was chatting some admittedly very harsh shit about the girl I was with at the time, and she found out and started crying and went mad and then said she couldn't be with me any more if I was still friends with him, so I lost my shit and marched on over to him on the school field and punched him a few times in front of everyone.
looked and felt like such a twat tbh.
he was in my next lesson that we normally sit next to each other in.
I sat on a different desk after that.
had a massive row with a bouncer who kept saying "you're not getting in wearing joggers", when i wasn't wearing joggers. started screaming "YOU CUNT. YOU FUCKING CUNT" at him when he let someone in who was wearing a tiger onesie.
then i came home and cried and that
