I've gotten pretty effing hammered manys a time, but I've never resorted to violence, let alone thrown a glass. I just don't get the mindset of these people.
Some people become very aggressive and violent after drinking. Some years ago I worked I a refugee centre and one New Years Eve organised a Lotto match and some music and took along about 6 bottles of wine divided betweeen about 20 people. One of the Nigerian women who was most meek and mild most of the time became a raging fury after 2 glasses of wine and started a fight with 2 vodka drinking Russians. One of the Tunisians also became a completely different person after a couple of glasses of wine and became quite violent. Frightening really how some people react to alcohol.
Hope you are better now

As an ex bouncer lads generally have the upper hand in size and strength but the ladies more than make up for it in viciousness and their ability to get away with it.
Oh isn't this just so true!!!

Re: Scumbags in pubs

Interesting update.
Was out last night to watch the Liverpool (Thank you Suarez ) and one of the bar staff said the boyfriend of the bitch who threw the glass wanted to meet with me to come to some kind of "arrangement". Obviously he's worried I would file a police complaint, so looks like he's wanting to pay me off . I'm not sure what kind of sum he had in mind, but the figure of 1k was mentioned.
Alternatively, he might be offering her servcies as "payment in kind" , but I doubt it.
I am very, nay extremely, tempted, since I know the legal process could take forever (it happened to a friend of mine), cost a fair bit and ultimately come to nothing in the end.
Thoughts? How much should I squeeze out of him?

Re: Scumbags in pubs

are there any medical bills involved ? (nevermind insurance )
.
I'd go for actual cost and then ask 2k for emotional distress. Then settle begrudgingly for the 1k you already know is on the table.

Re: Scumbags in pubs

All the medical bills... Make him compensate in few pints of Guiness as well and have a reconciliatory handshake. Sometimes we forgive our brethren their transgressions.

I never saw any bills, everything went straight through SUVA. How much would a visit to A&E for 2 hrs including stitches set me back if I were to pay out of my own pocket?
That plus no police plus emotional distress and loss of earnings (male model now with a permanent facial disfigurement, oh hang on, that's my nose) could be a tidy sum, no?
But yes, you're right, I'll probably take the 1k on offer and blow it on booze and whores.
Sorry, did I say that? I meant on a nice meal for myself and Mrs. G.

very kind of you to offer to take my wife out.


2 hrs. A&E could go to Chf 500. in the blink of an eye ... wouldn't be at all surprised to hear it was Chf 1000.-, depends on how many docs were "consulted"

Re: Scumbags in pubs

The cost of the medical bills, 1K for emotional distress and the right to ask for a free drink for everyone in the pub, for him to pay, whenever both of you are in the pub at the same moment. I'll bet you'll never see him again...

Re: Scumbags in pubs

Where were the police in all this? Fining somebody for a parking violation?

Back in England in th 90's my sisters boyfriend had this happen to him. The bloke got sent to prison and fined for his crime.If this would have happened to me I would have been crazed! Thanks for warning us about this knd of scum in this well behaved country!

My sister has an array of specialist scar creams etc ( used for her face from an accident she had out here) . Her scar is barely noticeable due to care and these good creams.

PM me if you need advice on these special creams and how to take care of it.

Alcohol most likely Or maybe just a very bad vision or both? But Cocaine?
Cocaine makes people violent, give them unrealistic expectations of their own awesomeness. (Gives them a god complex.)

Then again it doesn't physically do the same for men in the trouser department.

Nasty drug, it's addictive, makes you think you're something you're not and makes you aggressive, not my idea of fun. Yet many muppets take it every and each weekend.

I personally think that all agressive behaviour associated with any sort of drug* use is just the outburst influenced by a person's mental state.
(*I say 'DRUG' in general reference to both alcohol and other illicit substances)

These same people then blame alcohol and drugs on their socially behavioural problems as a quick fix "band-aid" solution to something more sinister. This is why seemingly nice people just lose their shit sometimes.
Public acceptance of this is just the scapegoat to provide a "One size fits all" solution rather than the impossible task of tackling the real issues behind each individual.



If alcohol and drugs are the root of the problem, why most people can consume them (specifically alcohol) in peace and remain fairly sociable?
(granted that more illicit substances exagerate the same effect)



If you are aggressive when you drink, take your time to think about what triggered the attack and either talk about your issues with someone you trust, or go and get some help.
Whatever you do, don't bottle it up and make the problem worse.

Drugs are rarely the problem (although we all do and say some stupid shit sometimes). Mostly people reach for them to mask their issues, and THEN blame the drug.

Nobody likes to drink with people like that.... and making your problem someone elses, isn't cool with me.... your outbursts just escalate problems in an otherwise calm atmosphere.

I say....... Stop blaming the drugs and sort your shit out.

I can drink in peace, so why can't you?
(and I know I say this for most people, further adding proof that alcohol is not the problem).

Re: Scumbags in pubs

PaddyG, are the police already involved? If so one thing I would want to be sure of is that they would not pursue this regardless of whether you want to. I am not clued up on the system here but in some countries the police will prosecute even if the victim doesn't want them to. This could end up with nasty repercussions for you from him and his lady (as if you can call her that). The police may also not look kindly in accepting what basically amounts to bribery.
