Students in fancy dress

Recommended Posts

Yeah like I said before, it annoys me, but sometimes you need to go along with things, especially if its someones birthday. Have you ever been out on the medical students special thingy? they ALL dress up and its like everyone in the city is in fancy dress, but I actually quite enjoyed it because no one was dressed up like golfers or nurses or anything, but everyone was dressed in really inventive stuff, it was pretty cool.

I used to really hate students when I was younger but then I went to uni and saw how everyone in my uni town (all the locals) hated me. So, they still annoy me a little, but I'm more relaxed these days. How old are you exactly? What do you do? I accept your apologies, I get a lil' flirty when I've had a drink (I say a little, probably embarassingly so), but I would hope that that is normal :)

 

Just to be clear, I am not against people going out in fancy dress. Say, someones birthday so a diverse crowd go out as superheroes or medieval knights or whatever. Its specifically nobhead students who go out in these "random" costumes such as a tropical island to get the most attention possible. They also blow on these damn whistles and are as loud as possible it annoys me to the point of suicide.

Im 26 and work in an office but dot know what I do exactly as I have blagged my way through the job fo the past 4 years. Its something to do with computers I think.

I like division street too. but its expensive sometimes, sometimes weststreet is good if you do just need a cheap pint. Since players opened I have been unable to stop visiting it as every male in my group of friends wants to visit it to look at the girls in cheerleading outfits.

Thankyou for your advice about my insecurity, untill I get back to sheffield, I will give the hills a miss. And I don't think your an old fuddy duddy, most of the old men I know don't have myspace accounts.

Plus, chief, I think you have been damaged, I never met anyone with a whistle? I never even saw a person out clubbing with a whistle? I think you must have had some bad luck with them.

 

Players is the biggest sh**hole on west street. Full of chav scum, I suggest your male mates buy some naughty mags as opposed to going to that chav infested, tight white t-shirt, gold cained from argos hellhole.

I know it really is a terrible bar, its not even cheap. My friend break dances there though and he's pretty good at it, its not all bad. Not that I'm a massive fan of break dancing or anything. I didn't know that many chavs were in players, but I guess if your a bit of a rocker it might irritate you.

Its an awful awful bar. You have the girls dancing wearing next to nothing on the podiums so all you get is the chavs stood in a corner watching them meaning the place has no atmosphere whatsoever. Full of 18 year old little boys thinking their supermen.

My pleasure. All I want to do is to help the misguided souls of today. I hope you consider a good hill walk when you get back. In the meantime, try a spot of singing. Excercising one's vocal chords is also a truly splendid pastime. There are some marvellous song suggestions on the following web sites:

Don't worry if you're out of key. Just express yourself. The first two links are the more simple songs by the way.

 

As for old people and myspace: I feel it is important to utilise every medium possible to communicate one's message. Please take the time to benefit from my wisdom on there too. Together in harmony we shall be people.

It seems the general consensusis that students dressed as vases with whistles are ruining Sheffield. A letter has been sent to try and end this, hopefully we wont have to put up with it much longer.

 

You hero, The Chief.

Thanks Mr. Chief (do you mind if I call you 'The' by the way? Seems much less formal).

Im not sure what you mean? What I do know is this though, I hate it when I walk in a bar and there are students in dressed as asparagus with whistles.

 

Be careful Chief your imagination and cleverly thought out costumes may give us ideas, prepare for next freshers week and a barricade of:

Umbrellas, crayons, asparagus (sp?) garden sheds...

 

Please stay angry, it's entertaining and insightful.

 

Are you an artist, you should be

 

:hihi:

i would just like to point out ohmyword that a girl can go out dressed as a nurse/maid/prozzie without pulling a different guy every night as you put it.

 

And i personally would much rather be in a bar of happy drunk students than 1 of drunk football fans

 

I was a student (ok not in sheffield) but i rarely saw a fight in a pub/club on a night out whereas its every friday and saterday night when the 'non students' are out

If someonone asked me if I wanted to go out with a bunch of students dressed in fancy dress or with some old, miserable tosser who'd moan and complain about everything...It wouldn't be a difficult decision. Maybe this is why you're on Sheff forum so much and why everyone hates you.

Ridiculous arguement by the OP.

 

I'm a student and have supported myself by working various jobs throughout university. I've sometimes worked over 70 hours a week and I feel like I deserve to go out for a drink with my mates on a Friday night. I don't want some tosser ruining my night by complaining that their pint is too cold, or that someone once blew a whistle within a mile radius of them. I go out for a chat with my mates so I meet them in a quiet pub so we can catch up before moving onto west street so we can enjoy the atmosphere a bit more.

 

It sounds like you have a disregard for students, without discrimination. Fancy dress is a good way of making a night different from every other night that you go out. What is dressing normal exactly? Everybody dresses differently, it usually reflects their personal tastes.

 

You obviously have a very narrow mind when it comes to socialising. Grow up and simmer down.

Sweeping generalisations! Unsubstantiated claims! By golly, what on earth are you talking about? Blimey, are you impugning me? The Chief? Who, pray tell? If you would like to frequent the same local bars as my friends and I, you would not be held in high regard by the local community in which we happily inhabit.

 

"Everyone hates you", you say. Who is "everyone"? Hate is a jolly strong word too. From whence did you collate your data on this matter?
