Envy of the World

Posted in Not the Job by 200

Well that’s that then. Not that I’ll have any time off around the Olympics to be able to attend anyway, but the family wanted to go.

What a fucking cock-up that was. If hear that jumped up little toffee-nosed squirt (Coe) come on telly another time and say how ‘fair’ the whole system was, I’ll check the TV through his bedroom window.

Of course it’s completely fair that  hundreds of thousands of people get fuck-all while one knob who happens to have  a lot of money gets £11,000′ worth of tickets out of a £30,000 request.

It’s completely fair that people we know got all £1,000′  worth of tickets they applied for while everyone else we know, including family Weeks, got zilch.

It’s completely fair that the British have to go through some stupid bloody system which means you have to take a complete financial leap in the darkwith absolutely no idea how much to bet , what you’ll get,if anything, nor how much it will cost you, while everyone else in Europe can go and buy the exact tickets they want when they want to pay for them.

And completely fair that the people who will be competing in the games can’t get tickets for their own family to see them in the pinnacles of their  careers.

Long time followers of this blog will chuckle at the irony that the only tickets left if the Weeks family want to see the Olympics are bloody football!

Fairness? Coe doesn’t know the meaning of the word.

    Wha-wha-wha! Tough shit 200. Life’s not fair, get used to it. Not everything you want can be gained by a funny handshake or a flash of the warrant card. Boo-hoo-fucking-hoo.

    Trust me – from our experience of the 2000 games, most of it is a pile of over-hyped shit. Rent your house out to some rich yanks for a very large amount of money and take an overseas holiday.

    //Hibbo, …… you just not had sex lately?//

    200, I think you’re right. Hibbo usually has sex 5 times a day but I understand that he’s broke his wrist….so sex is out of the question for now.

    so the funny handshake hibbo is talking about is the one he applies to his own groin area 5 times a day ?

    Don’t start me on the Olympics. Five times more expensive than first estimated (typical Labour0someone else’s money).The roads will be grid-locked,prices will rocket and the muggers will be 5 deep around the stadium to prey on the naive foreign tourists who think London is a safe place to visit.Plus how many of them will go home once they have visited? Nightmare all round.
    In the Met we have been told there’s no time off for 9 weeks,3 weeks before,3 during and 3 after.That’s my summer knackered then.

    I consider myself very fortunate to have received the tickets I asked covering the period of the Olympic Games. Two seats on Easyjet to Tenerife!
