    Mini rant...

    First of all, Chavs. I officially want them to die. I was sitting there on the tram with my friends... we're all dressed grunge/goth and so they walk past, eye us up with a "eurgh" and then a few mins later start throwing chicken wings at the back of my head. considering i said nothing, did nothing and didn't even look at them, i find this pretty out of order. i just moved. then there's the chavs smoking pot all over the tram and making my friend ill with the smell, which pissed me right off.

    Second of all, the card system at vue is complete crap. i tried to buy some (overpriced, watered down) coke and some malteasers from there and was greeted with a 5 mins wait as I was the first person to use a till on this card. considering the tills they used are pretty complex, i find this stupid. not only is it a cinema where time is critical, in icelands we have tills powered by 386's and even they only take a couple of secs to authorise and succesfully make a card transaction. i made a complaint to the boss who was there, and they replied with the same feeling - it's stupid and something needs to be done. I can't believe a cinema has employed a card system which is obviously not up to the job and can leave people missing the beginning of their film.

    I feel your pain.
    The chav thing, happened to me oh too many times, now they get a wonderful, "look mate, either you stop it, or i'll tear your face off" works well outta being older than all of them.
    I don't even dress 'gothy', just "normal".

    The other bit, yeah a cinema really needs decent tills, thats pretty pathetic.

    i remember working at my old Vue(was warner village at the time) and i have to say that even though it was a 9 screen cinema the whole place is run by 3 or 4 old pentium2 machines with a central server with a 450p2 and i think about 256 ram. even the tills were HP machines with old celerons.

    i was amazed all transactions were done by such old tech (at the time '02/'03) and wondered how much strain these machines were taking..finally a few months b4 i left i saw newer tills whih were piss-poor p4 HP's with win2000 but the sentral machines were still the old machines :duh:

    i can now answer when y the system took so long to do a transaction or a booking coz the central machines were so old.

    but considering my workplace now..its funny coz the tills are all fitjitsu/seemens machines with celeron cpus an everytime they boot up i laugh at this "12X66mhz" and it still take a good 5 mins or so to boot up properly. but atlest the central machies ar all recent dell coporate machines with good cpu's and ram.


    ohh yeah i think chav's are the downfall of society!! :rock:

    penski - try getting beaten up for defending your friend who was literally getting kicked in the head while on the floor for being in the vicinity of a "troublemaking youth", spending 2 weeks in hospital and see how you feel. I know you've had some experience in this area too but frankly i think that comment was ****ing insensitive. I think they're the scum of the earth, and they vindicate this opinion every day. Just a couple of days ago one of these guys said "i hope your mother dies of AIDS" to a very close friend of mine, with completely no provocation. That guy deserved a beating, and it just so happened that my friend, while being thoroughly capable of administering a thorough beatdown to a group of "those people", chose not to, because he felt it would be stooping to their level. The sad thing is, it's people that allow them to get away with it that perpetuate their existence. I'd just as soon have them lined up and shot.

    Notice I haven't used the word chav in this post as you appear to have a problem with it.

    AH

    edit: Oh yeah, and K - elitist much? :D

    I don't understand why you would put up with that. I would have got up and beat the living **** out of anyone who wasted perfectly good chicken wings on my head. Or anyone who threw chicken wing bones at me too. People have to quit whining and do something when someone is pissing them off.

    Alright, end of my rant. :D

    edit: Just noticed the post before mine and although stooping down to their level isn't cool, it works and people don't mess with you anymore.

    Damn where should I start.
    Dressing goth = asking for it
    I hate chavs as much as you do, I think it's sad and theire clothes are ridicule. But hey, I hate goths for the same reason. Goths are sad and dress funny. So I laugh with them too. I don't go around throwing parts of a chicken though. I leave everybody fysically alone.

    I still don't get goths, they are supposed to be sad and depressed, but nobody that is depressed spends hours in the mirror putting on their black make up, and picking out a sick-outfit for the day. Don't forget the cat-whatever look lenses. What is up with that?

    I can just conclude 1 thing:
    Don't let anyone push you around!

    And who gets "ill" from the pot-smoke?

    Yea you really should try stand up to/fight back otherwise they'll just continue:/.That's a bit rich coming from me cos I'm a bit of a weed. heh.

    My ex dresses a bit 'different' to most and gets a fair bit o' verbal abuse of yobs n 'chavs', but fact is as soon as he turns round towering over them (he's quite self assured and tall and menacing at times lol) and says 'you what mate?' they usually back off. :)

    We can thank god we dont have Texan laws here otherwise we'd have a serious gun problem because of chav's.

    If you "flash some steel" over here you should expect to be shot at by some armed police.

    I don't think about them, I don't talk to them and I don't interact with them until the point where they encroach upon my personal space. Be that verbally or physically, they meet very swift retribution.

    As Emma said, simply turning toward them and remaining sure and confident usually makes them go 'oops...er...sorry, mate' and run off.

    They are spineless scum but letting them walk all over you is pitiful.

    PS: you dress like a 'goth' (sickening abuse of the term) and you should expect everything you get...If you can't handle it, don't draw attention to yourself.

    All this standing up for yourself is bollocks. If you're walking around on your own and a group of say 20 chavs start shouting stuff, throwing stuff etc are you going to start a fight with them.

    Hell I may be able to take on one or two of them but I'd get the living **** beaten out of me if I took on that many.

    You're right that they are spineless scum on their own but when there's a group of them it's just not worth reacting to them.

    Local charvers haven't gone near me since I started on a group of ten of them...I was in an incredibly fould mood when they started on me so I just laid into them, got three of them and the rest ran off.

    something I've been using since middle school: Get a reputation for random violent outbursts and people leave you the **** alone.

    It's not so much clothes, it's hair aswell. I've got longish hair and i don't see myself as a goth at all, infact i find goths annoying, especially the ones that believe they've been put on this earth to worship satan. I get everything at school for it, for instance ::

    "get a mop chop"
    "stinkin gotho"
    "bushy haired c***"

    There's plenty stuff that's gone down in Morpeth we've been blamed for. For instance, we all used to go the rugby club next to the two middle schools every Friday night, once the chavs found out they decided to come up with knives, metal poles and two by fours. They trashed every window in both the schools and kicked half the people stupid. Next morning in the papers the headline was "Teenage rampage", the whole article was in one way or another blaming us for getting drunk/ high on drugs and trashing the school.

    It's disgusting how pure scum coming from the lowest of backgrounds always seem to get off lightly, they all live in council houses leeching off benefits when all they do is terrorise oap's in the bus station and go looking for weed all day, kicking the sh** out of anyone who looks at them. I'm sure alot of other people feel strong about the little buggers, how about we start up a Bit-Tech anti-chav squad? :p :D
