Beyond the expected

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?

JB,

A quote from Niles Crane (Frasier) seems appropriate:

Oh, for god’s sake, Frasier don’t waste your breath on this hairy, knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing troglodyte who’s probably the only male in existence who suffers from penis envy!”

Did he and his mates look like they were in the military JB? Having someone roll their eyes at you is scarcely noticed in civvie street but it will really raise the hackles of a digger/wannabee hero.

If you saw them again and could confirm they were members of Australia’s finest and they caused you trouble, I’d be straight onto the phone to the MP’s at Duntroon or at least threaten to do so. Soldiers love a fight but there aren’t many that like being on the RSM’s mat the next day.

You went to a bar to watch the rugby and encountered a tool? roflcopter

Q: “What are you looking at?”
A: “Nothing, just waiting for the roofies to kick in so you’ll shut up.”

Unfortunately there are ignorant twats like these everywhere and unfortunately bars/clubs etc let them in because they have money.

Yay Capt RAAF, bouncers should take a leaf out of your book.

Heroes like this bloke will only pick on people who give the impression they’re not interested in a blue – however rest assured that one day he’ll most likley end up barking up the wrong tree. Don’t get mad about it, instead take some pleasure in the knowledge that one day he’ll antagonise the wrong person and end up having his attitude adjusted. For the sake of those people who reckon “he’s actually a really nice guy”, I hope it doesn’t involve too much trauma.

In the mean-time let the staff/owners know about the incident. I don’t conisder this a whinge – if it was my establishment I’d like to know before fights start impacting my business. A couple of hundred bucks to put a surly bloke on the door should stop this kind of foolishness (as well as the bad hair-cuts and white shoes).

I would have smacked him in the mouth, where the hell was my call, JB??

Next time go to the RUC in Barton. Mostly a tosspot-free zone.
