- 'Black Friday'. Where's the worst place? And who's braving it?
Seems like the A&E departments are bracing themselves for an onslaught of drunken injuries and Kebab-House Fight Club victims, who’s braving the madness and going out tonight then? and where?
And whats the worst place? I’d nominate Whitehaven in Cumbria where its referred to as ‘Mad Friday’. I was out there a few years back and I’ve never seen anything like it. Apparently it was all the Sellafield staff with their Christmas Bonuses in their back pocket. It literally looked like a war zone by last orders! Bodies lying all over the vomit-strewn pavements. When the apocalypse comes, this is what it will look like.
Your nominations for the most mental place to go tonight would be…. ?Posted 7 years agowoody2000Subscriber
I don’t know where the worst place WOULD be, but I can tell you my worst “Mad Friday” was at the Puzzle Hall Inn, Sowerby Bridge. I won’t bore anyone with the details, but suffice to say I consumed a lot of <things>, and spent the next 2 days in hospital. 😕
That was 2000, and I’ve stayed in ever since!Posted 7 years agosamuriMember
I’m going down the smoke to point and laugh at cockneys getting drunk on half a pint of shandy and then trying to ride home on their brakeless fixies while smoking a cigarette.
I was thinking of going out drinking myself but then I reconsidered because
a) All beer in London tastes dead watery and has eels floating in it.Posted 7 years ago
b) Being a Northerner and all I’ll be the hardest bloke in the entire city so won’t be able to get in any fights,.farmer gilesMember
black friday was always the crappest clubbing night of the year when the place would fill up with pissed up blokes and really ruff women and i would guenuinely be more worried about being lamped by a “woman” than a bloke.Posted 7 years ago
bother in law used to work the door at flairs in southampton so that would sound like a typical night for him
Black eye Friday here too (Durham) and I’m not at work, woohoo!
A few of us from the ambulance station are going out for a xmas curry and a couple of beers tonight in a peaceful little backwater………………….Consett !!
Should make a nice change NOT to have to pick up the ‘casualties of war’ 😆Posted 7 years agotrailofdestructionMember
I’ve worked in bars in Ulverston on ‘Black Eye Friday’. It’s true to say that the women can be even rougher than the men *shudder*. Far too much blood and broken glass. Barrow is even worse, but the row of pubs and clubs (also know as the Gaza Strip) is one one side of the square and the Police station is on the other, so it’s not too far from the bar to the cells. Classy place is Barrow.Posted 7 years ago
GG It’s a toss-up between North Road and Millenium Square for calls nowadays, although to be fair Millenium tends to be more mini skirted tooty toppling over in their high heels…………….
Consett calls are usually the result of fighting and is as likely to be female as it is male. Make of that what you will !Posted 7 years agomeehajaMember
donning my assault boots (vomit proof) and probably putting my best hi viz on before stepping out for a 12 hour night shift in Leeds city centre. Last year we moved 23 patients in 12 hours, normal friday we shift 10-12 max. Not sure wether to go with mounted machine guns or keep a low profile and pick off the trouble makers with sniper rifles to put the fear in the rank and file. I’ve got bananas, apples and tobacco packed up ready for the onslaught and a mushroom stroganoff back at base. naan for dipping and extra water to keep hydrated.
Stay frosty out there!Posted 7 years ago
