Dress Code.

c` 1 March 2009 39

The grunt at the front of O’Malley’s refused to let me in tonight. Apparently you can’t wear sandals (slip-ons) at this fine establishment. I asked him why. Without going to into too much detail, he proclaimed, “put it this way, whats happens when you use the trough, there’s a chance someone might piss on your feet”.

Piss on my feet? Someone might piss on my feet? Can this Albert Einstein be serious? There is a chance someone might piss on my feet, sure, but not before I’ve done a slipped a disc sliding through vomit on the way to said trough. Don’t need sandals to do that.

I had already have my overtures rejected at T&G because I was wearing shorts. I thought, fair enough, it’s a little pretentious (OK Wanky). But O’Malleys?

If you have a tinea problem, wearing sandals and going to the trough at the pub could actually be a good idea.

Or perhaps dealing with a rather painful Jellyfish sting.

I was at O’Malleys on Saturday night and had to do some quick footwork to avoid having my shoes getting urine-washed by a bloke whose co-ordination had been severly affected by beer. Probably best you weren’t allowed in.

The guy has a point. The bouncer I mean.

Have you ever stood at a packed trough in sandals, or thongs? I would imagine it’s pretty gross.

Go drink somewhere else. Or wear decent shoes.

I’ve always found blokes in sandals a little shifty myself, add socks to that and it’s all over.

Jesus wore sandals, and look where it got him.

Crucified, that’s where.

it always happens, guys can’t wear sandles or thongs, girls can. Guys can’t wear sleevless shirts, girls can basically walk in wearing a bra.

You’ve really nailed that one. I’ll give it an 8.

I would have given it a lower score, but the total lack or punctuation or capitals (apart from “Ottoman”)gives it a “less is more” flame quality you don’t see everyday.

The subject matter isn’t earthshattering, I’ll be the first to admit, but I love this reply:

DawnDrifter:soon you will be having a whinge for not being let into the Ottoman in your wifebeater. stay in charnie/the quean for our own good

Standard, tired response which is apparently funny. Check.
Healthy dose of originality. Check,
“Charnie”/”Queanbeyan” and “wifebeater” within a half dozen words of each other: double check.

Judging from last night’s activity – there is no GFC.

This trumps the global financial crisis. Thanks for bringing something this terribly important to our attention.

I don’t go out to Civic much but had to have a good laugh at a bouncer at Meche the other week… a friend comes down to find me and then gets told he’s not allowed in as he is wearing “skate shoes”… Points out to said bouncer that he had already been upstairs for over an hour with no one telling him earlier his shoes were unacceptable. Bouncer continues to argue he’s not allowed back up, chicks at the door finally tell the bouncer to lay off, he’s already paid entry etc.

Me however, then gets another good laugh out of almost every male up there wearing similar or the exact same shoes as my mate.

That happened to myself and a friend at the Uni Pub a year or so ago, where the bouncer said next time we wouldn’t be let in if we were wearing sneakers/running shoes, which were not tatty in any way. We walked in and 90% of the males in the place were wearing sneakers.

While i’m accepting of no thongs/sandals in nightclbs, probably because most of them look bogan anyway, I think they should treat males and females the same way in that regard. Females get away with it because most of them are prettier than us males lol

Though some dress codes of the clubs are rediculous, but hey if they don’t want your money then that’s their loss.

pptvb: you are a tool.
Thank you for your Pulitzer Prize winning contribution. It wasn’t you that knocked me back last night, perchance?

squashee: Hope the sandals were well strapped on.. Last night the floor there was like super glue!

What I wanted to do was go to the bar, sink a couple of pints outside and make the last bus home. In the end, I just went home. The bouncer decided they didn’t want my money so it’s still in my pocket. I didn’t think I looked horrible – I’d just come in from the brumbies match and at 6pm when I turned up there it was hot enough that I wasn’t going to be wearing shoes. I was wearing shorts as well.

I’m old enough not to bother pressing the point, but clearly young enough to have a bitch and moan on here. It seem to be tenor of every other thread that makes the home page.

Sandals is probably the wrong word to describe the ‘shoes’, I think the correct phraseology is ‘slides’? Whatever.

I’m no hippy but if you decide to wear shorts, how would any of the smart arses on here choose to be shod?

“No pants” gets plenty of service from me in my establishment.. just love to see pants on the back of chairs. 😛

I am a big fan of establishments with “no pants, no service” rules. Any more then that, who cares?

Mate, next time you see another unfriendly primate, try demonstrating the ol’ “banana on a string trick” to it.
Hey, wouldn’t it have been the coolest, if you had subsequently dropped in at a bowling alley, rented a pair of shoes (clearly marked as such), and then proceeded back to the crime scene?! Would have loved to have heard the “grunt”.. let out a genuine one LOL

Good topic! I got a chuckle out of it, anyway. And at least the neckless one tried to give a sensible answer. After all, you don’t want people pissing on your feet.
