It's like this.
I'm out last night. Waiting for a song that I like to come on, so I can get on the dancefloor and grope on some chicks.
The place is packed.
Talking, almost mosh pit status.
So anyways, I'm stood at the bar, sipping on some ice water.
There's some space to either side of me, so plenty of room for folk to come up and order drinks and shit.
Next thing, this dude with his ears full of piercings - he has that whole emo thing going on with about 4 piercings in each ear, he comes up to the bar and he's ordering a drink.
Next thing I notice, this motherfucker is kind of shouldering me.
I glance over to him, and he apologizes, gives it, "sorry there mate, sorry".
So fair enough, I move aside to give him some room to get the bartenders attention.
He sidles up to me again, and starts shoving me, then basically shoves me out of the way entirely.
Now, myself, I generally don't go in for fighting in public, or even being confrontational in a big way.
From time to time, sure, I'll tell some bitch to go fuck herself or something but, that's all part of modern social etiquette as far as I'm concerned.
But this dude, he has his back turned to me, like he doesn't have a care in the world.
I mean, I could easily slug him from the rear and he'd be in no position to defend himself - I guess he's thinking, he's such a, bad motherfucker, that he can just get away with this shit.
I grab him by shoulders and make to move him back the way he came, but he basically doesn't budge, and seems oblivious.
So I get up in his ear and give it, "do we have a problem here mate?".
Again - he doesn't respond.
So I weigh the circumstances.
I could easily slap on a choke hold on his oblivious ass, slug him, or double leg him to the ground, as, like I said, he's stood with his back to me - just to show this cocky sumbitch he should be more polite.
His retaliation, or the chance that he has buddys that might jump me, doesn't concern me or affect my judgement or decision, at all - that's just how it is.
But then, of course if I do that, that will create a kerfuffle.
He's put my nose out of joint a little bit, for sure, but I basically decide to let it go.
To me, it was basically one dude, trying to "one up" another dude, by being a dick and getting away with it.
Anyways - about an hour later, I'm hitting on all sorts of chicks on the dancefloor. Tall, small, fat, skinny, old, teenage - you name it.
Just a matter of numbers as far as I'm concerned; some nights I get lucky, some less so, but it's a good time.
This dude appears again, and pats me on the shoulder like, we're kool and gang now or some shit.
So, we're stood about, hitting on chicks, and I'm thinking, yeah bro, if you think your getting lucky by being a skinny, angry and aggressive looking tool with two ears full of metal, you better re-evaluate your shit.
Just then, this pretty hot chick rushes him screaming and laughing, and they start dancing.
Five minutes later, they're eating the face off each other.
And I'm like - WTF??
Now I'm kicking myself I didn't just slug the fucker earlier when I had the opportunity.
What they refer to them here in Ireland as "knackers", I believe - which is an incredibly silly term but, one that seems to be the norm none-the-less.
In England, they're referred to as "Chav's".
Anyways - that's basically the persona this guy was embodying.
And I'm thinking to myself - is this for real??
Girls actually go for that shit??
Is ugly the new attractive??
Maybe I'm just too grown up for that now (27), or maybe I've been out of the country for too long but, the cut of this guy??
And chicks get their jollies being with an ignorant, ill mannered, wannabe "bad-ass" like that??
I honestly didn't know which was worse.
The ugly chav, or the silly chick that was digging on his mojo.
And so I refer to the thread title.
What the fuck is the deal with these people??
