Title: Operation GLASGOW RESCUE
Post by: ZJGent on 28 Dec 2009, 07:37
Darryl and I are stranded (mostly due to a lack of foresight on my part) in Glasgow, three days too early, without somewhere definite to stay. We were wondering if anyone might be available nearby who'd be willing and able to find us and help us avoid being stabbed in the eyes and organs, not to mention finding somewhere we can stay safely until the 30th - we do have money and are able to pay our way to some degree - but are completely lost in the city centre, in the Museum of Modern Art in... Royal Exchange Square? (hence the internetting ability despite our predicament). But we are in desperate and dire need of aid and assistance. Please (if you know of a solution) contact us on something something telephone number. Aware as I am of the naivety of publishing my phone number on the internet, I would rather fork out for a new sim card in the future than freeze to death on the snowy and sanctuaryless streets of Glasgow.

In the words of Milla Jovovich in that one movie,
Please... Halp!

No they aren't. For a start it's Glasgow, one of the friendliest most amazing cities in Europe. There's literally hundreds of awesome bars they can hang out in until Chris or Oli show up. I've sent both of them texts and they know what is happening.

Yeah, if I was ever to be stuck somewhere hoping a kindly soul would help me out I'd hope I was in Glasgow over pretty much anywhere else.

I just heard from Darryl, they just booked themselves into a hostel. They're fine.

Tommy has it in one, and the ease with which we found somewhere to stay is testament to his earlier statement - Glasgow is really friendly and we were helped along the way by a plethora of engaging and understanding individuals. We are safe and happy and eagerly awaiting meet-ups. Sorry if any of you were overly alarmed, and thank you to all the individuals (oli I am so sorry for the hue and cry on your facebook earlier) who rushed out of the blue to care for our well-being.

In short, we are safe and merry and well and sorry for any inconvenience our ultimately needless panic caused.

That's pretty awesome! You didn't even help me, Tommy, but I want to say thanks. So uh... thanks for being a swell dude and helping people out!

Inwardly I sort of hoped that they would die?

This thread has forever crushed my impression of Glasgow as a city of near-constant glassings
Title: Re: Operation GLASGOW RESCUE
Post by: Inlander on 28 Dec 2009, 22:37
The secret to glassings is to put on a football jersey for Rangers or Celtic. Then you enter a secret, terrifying shadow-Glasgow.

Only in certain parts of the city...  :wink:

Then again there are areas where you'd get glassed or stabbed for looking weird...  :-(

I never realised Glasgow was held in such high regard. This makes me, as a Glaswegian, quite happy indeed. :)

Darrly sorry for repeated telephonic communiciations inquiring as to your state of being (dead/alive). Good to know it is the latter!

We do have the friendliest city in Britain. :-D

Then again we also have one of the highest murder rates in Europe.  :-(

Swings and roundabouts really...  :-P

Are you sure you're from Glasgow? It's just that you've said like at least two sentences without using the phrase "See you, see cunt, you're a cunt, you! Aye...."

While I'm typing, I'm actually drinking violently, eating a variety of deep fried foods and swearing at my family members. No worries.

Well you can't be a friendly murderer if you're not smiling while you stab

Guys, chances are I won't make it to Glasgae tomorrow seeing as that it's 6 oclock and I'm not asleep yet and probably won't be anytime soon.
