Local Leaders

The voice of business in Canberra

I have no respect for you, but a great deal of contempt can be mustered

By johnboy - 4 June 2011 27

In exciting news I have this night met the most obnoxious oxygen thief of my life.

Not being willing to pay for foxtel I made my pilgrimage like visit to All Bar Nun tonight to watch the Brumbies, one of my guilty pleasures and a necessity of my work.

For the first sixty minutes of the game I endured people standing in places that blocked my view of the screen. I moved as needed, waited as needed, and put up with it because that’s part of being in a shared space.

So imagine my shock and surprise when a gap opened up to spot I could both put my glass down and more easily exchange banter with the cute girl watching the game on her own, and suddenly I’ve got this big bloke in a tight tshirt in my ear.

“You’ve moved so me and my mates can’t see the game.”

I rolled my eyes and moved back to where I’d been.

“Don’t you roll your eyes at me!”

“I’ve moved, but I’ll roll my eyes at whoever I want.”

Angry words ensued, it was frankly ridiculous.

If I had been in his house, blocking his view of his television then I still would have expected a more jovial approach to getting me to move.

But the best came ten minutes later when I looked around to check I wasn’t blocking the precious princess’ view.

There he was again in my ear.

“Have you got a problem?”

“Nope.”

“What are you looking at?”

“Rugby.”

“Who do you think you are looking at me?”

I returned to watching the game and ignored the tool.

But I would ask you, dear reader, to forward this story through your channels so that I may pass on the following message to the princess.

Your genitalia is small and malformed. You have an undeserved sense of entitlement. If everyone was like you the world would be a terrible place.

And in the 38 years I’ve spent in this world meeting wide variety of wierdoes, you’re the worst person I’ve ever met.

What’s Your opinion?

You’re lucky to have only met one of them. Angry men in tight t-shirts are all too common these days.

I couldn’t believe how many of them I saw in Civic last night. Never mind it’s 4 degrees outside, apparently showing off your fully ripped muscles bro is far more important.

Next time watch the Brumbies at one of our evil licensed clubs. If anyone hassles you then security will simply chuck them out.

JB, I’m sorry you had to deal with this crap. It’s simply wrong, and I’m sure this arsehat will come back in his next life as a toilet bowl, or something similar.

A few years ago a distant relative of mine got involved in some aggro in a bar in a southeast asian city. Some bastard hit him over the head with a liquor bottle and killed him. It was probably unintentional, but that’s no consolation if you’re dead.

So, infuriating though it is, the best thing to do IMHO is just to walk away from these fools. Real violence is not like stylised TV violence, and a single king hit to the face can change your life forever, or end it.

Just my $0.02 worth.

I’d have expected that sort of f***ed rubbish in Gungahlin. It appears that the spreading of the boganus horribilis is on the move. Pity.

Did you get a win with the cute girl after all that?

Should have turned around and glassed him.

Yeah, I also totally miss it when someone tries to pick me up in a bar too.

Rugby, beer, machismo – youre lucky this didnt end up in the watchhouse/emergency or both.

Nice that such a cretin recieves the contempt he so richly deserves, crying shame he wouldn’y have the mental capacity to use the internet let alone read these comments.

Ah, the war cry of the bogan hard man wanna-be.

lol – someone was bored with the game and was looking for a fight to liven things up …….

His Mummy obviously didn’t hug him enough when he was a child.

Gee, going out for a quiet one and a good time is so hard these days, as you just don’t know which caveman or cavewoman you just might run into.

I don’t suppose he pissed on your head when you went to the John?

Q: “What are you looking at?”

A: “Someone who will be extracting their teeth from their back passage for the next month if they say another word to me. Now flit away before I become annoyed with you”
