Barry never thought of doing this. You’d have to be a right mug to turn down your refund


#42

haha, insulting and shaming customers who would prefer a refund

Those responses are just like DiS poll choices.

Also, let’s be optimistic here and say they sold half the allocation of tickets for this year’s festival. If everyone was down to “let it ride” and opted in and the festival organisers genuinely had the intention of running another festival next year–rather than simply preventing people from claiming the refunds they were entitled to–then they’d have the task of putting on a truly luxury festival next year for twice as many people as this year absolutely free of charge. Nothing could possibly go wrong.

It was fake. Read the Twitter replies to it and someone posted the original Tweet it was from from 2015

This is why I mentioned how dubious I was of a lot of the Tweets. I think William Rich Kid IV completely invented that notebook or else he picked up something someone else wrote and knowingly/naively posted stuff from it.

Dunno the notes seem too mundane for bants to me

“Buyers > Talent > Buyers & Talent”

This would still be better than V probably.

Apparently the sandwiches were supplied by a company called Barry’s Hoagies

"Would you like to exchange your 2017 wages for promotion to a more senior role on the 2018 festival staff?

A: Yes, let it ride. I’d love to support you all in creating something amazing!

B: No, I’m not down for the adventure (and I have a tiny wiener)"

Imagine if Barry Hogan had got ten years for Jabberwocky.

*obviously I’m aware of the differences, just based on the original post.
