Flip out/rage quit thread


#1

TW: I’m not sure of the tone this thread will ultimately take but I guess just be aware that people might have flipped out for not great reasons etc

Anyway - ever lost it past the point of your own control? Not just having a row - full can’t-stop-yourself yelling at the world?

Old pal of mine used to flip out if he was losing an argument even. Remember we once had a HUGE debate about whether a track by Hot Club de Paris was slowing down or just being drummed differently. Settled it with a metronome and in response to being wrong he flipped the entire table over and stormed out. Was kind of excellent at the time

Of all things, Hot Club de Paris!


#3

Probs done this 3 times I reckon.


#4

He’s a drummer himself so it was a real point of pride


#5

:joy:


#6

I mean, not precisely this.

(I think it was about a Turin Brakes song)


#7

I once lobbed my coffee at a train that pulled out of the station 2 mins early


#8

The only time I have had red mist descend was when my best mate called me a ‘uni cunt’ cos I told him to stop spilling cider in our tent at Latitude festival. He wasn’t the best academically and I never rubbed it in his face that I went to uni so it was a really weird comment and I proper lost it. Ended up throwing hands and then I apologised within about 15 seconds of losing it. Very odd.

Had a completely dickish argument with a pal whilst in Bratislava years and years ago about the fact that he loved The Rasmus meaning that he couldn’t in good faith claim to be a “music fan”. It led to the formation of two individual groups going their own way for the night rather than us all being out together.

I am extremely ashamed of it, what a fucking unbearable prick I must have been


#10

I’ve kicked a few trains/cars in my time :grimacing:


#11

(any other examples of flipping out or rage quitting are entirely down to a negative football result and, as such, don’t count)


#12

Would you say you’d been watching and waiting in the shadows that night?


#13

Once had a subway meatball sub, gravity must have been extra strong that day because the filling just kept getting away from me, I would stop it coming out of one bit and it would come out of another bit, after the third meatball hit the ground I became overwhelmed and threw it against the ground, splattering myself with marinara sauce in the process


#14

god i love hot club de paris, going to go and listen to their second album right now


#15

He still sings it to me every time I see him these days and I properly love him. He is the Rentokill mate that was previously one of the Securicor men with the helmets and who worked at a dump for a bit. He’s the best.


#16

Such a good band and I always forget how good they are!


#17

Love this


#18

#19
