Really? I did not know that.
I’m banned for life from Vodka Revs in Cambridge for sticking 2 fingers up behind the bouncer’s back (I was drunk, it wasn’t behind his back it was right in front of his face, and he carried me out). I went back in the week after. It’s no big loss.
Got barred from The Quad in Cork City for ripping a picture frame off the wall. The frame was affixed to the wall with epoxy so it took a huge fucking chunk of plasterboard with it. Was let in a few days later as it was the last night the pub was open.
Was barred from the Abbot’s Ale House too. Jumped down their stairs and grabbed a flag hanging off the ceiling on the way down to break my fall. Was barred for a few years until an ex went in and asked could I be unbarred. they said I could come back if I returned the flag. I still have the flag and have drank in there multiple times since.
you’ll never guess how long for!
How did you manage that??
I damaged some of their property at a Christmas party. Mainly a Christmas tree.
Some very good replies in that thread
Got banned for throwing a snow ball at a bouncer. I gave him a warning and aimed at the wall above his head so it wasn’t that bad and it wasn’t in malice.
some replies, at least
Tell us more
Got banned from [redacted]* for confronting their bouncer over his groping of a woman
*quite a well known central london pub, but is currently in the process of changing owners so wont say the name
a thing i ordered from there ‘broke’ so i sent it back, and they returned it with quite a terse note explaining that they had replaced a fuse for me free of charge
I’m banned from Cornwall. Wouldn’t catch me within 100 miles of those weirdos ever again anyway.
put your jam on first or something?
Nothing exciting - they fucked up a smallish order (sent the wrong item) and they didn’t include a return label so it took six weeks to refund me my £200 because the returns people were refusing to process it because it didn’t have a barcode to scan.
They only processed it in the end because I actually managed to find Herr Thomann’s mobile number and I rang him up & told him how shit his company/staff were. He was on the golf course at the time but fuck it I’d already been on the phone to a dozen different people & they were all like ‘well if it doesn’t have the correct return label we can’t prove we’ve received it?’ - drove me mad.
Within 10 minutes of calling the boss I had my money back. That was it, all sorted…I thought
Fast forward 9 months & I ordered something else…only to receive a really shitty email saying that I was banned for life due ‘causing a commotion’ and upsetting staff
I’ve tried to order a few things since & the main site processes it and then some fucker just cancels the order - I reckon someone got a bollocking/demotion and they’ve made it personal
that chimes with my experience
this is amazing!
