Chorlton Green tourists in full effect

the place on the chorlton bulletin board for vegetable-spread related chatter and other matters...it's the first, the best and it's currently hack free.

It would be nice if people just played their music beside themselves, if they really had to, and didn't feel the need to blast the place.

It would also be nice if people would stand up, be brave, and ask for the music to be turned down to a tolerable level (and for others to back them up, rather than just turning away, embarrassed and terrified)

Chorlton Green summers are one of life's pleasures. Savour!

I think we'd get punched if we asked them to turn the music down or off. :(

Thats why they should be approached with "backup"...... majorities win.

Here's a tip. If you get to the Green between noon and early afternoon it's really quite peaceful.

One can enjoy a calm and sustaining pint unjostled by tourists, and disturbed only by a few carrier bags wafting around from yesterday's influx. However, the charter flights arrive at 2.30pm so pack up your bucket and spade and get going before then.

sounds like the people who are doing the most bleating about the loud music need to either do something about it, or SHUT UP, for pete's sake you sound pathetic, bitching on about living in the centre of chorlton........what do you expect??

Moats! AK47's! "Peace" walls! I.D. cards! Armed gaurds!

Not VERY socialist is it?

I was getting drunk on that green 20 years ago for gods sake.

What happend to the big chorlton love-in?

Does it make it better at 2am if it's a drunken student laughing hysterically about the facking AMAZING trolley he just pinched from safeway?

Is it OK to get smashed on Old Bishops Brown Knob Best Ale (served with half a tree floating in it) instead of skol and then to wander down your road talking very loudly about how he just cant handle the kids in his class an more?

Instead of the stereo - its the neighbour with the Audi TT thats got 4 alarms waking me up because a cat sat on the bonnet and the muppet sleeps at the back of the house so leaves it blaring for 30 minutes?

Waking up to the sound of grunts and groans looking out of my bedroom window and seeing a middle aged, pony tailed (i kid you not!) "trendy" knobbing a girl who looked young enough to be his grand daughter?
but hey, thats funny...if it was a couple of doleys, you dont laugh?..i wonder why?

But I supose thats just me being intollerant again...

Toast,

Its not irony, i was merely trying to point out that it makes very little difference who disturbs you - you have still been disturbed and it isnt always the oiks who do the disturbing.

As you failed to respond to any of my post (apart from the opening line). I take it you agree with the point I made?

If you are going to have a pop at me, at least have the good manners to read the whole post and respond to all of it as I have tried to do with mine.

** thuds head off table repeatedly **

no P. what i meant was that perhaps the posters who were suggesting AK-47s peace walls, moats and immigration style tactics were perhaps employing a little use of irony that you perhaps didn't pick up on... that was all

aaahhh, i see.

but dont you think behind the very flimsy veil of irony there is more than a grain of peoples true feelings?

or should i just throw up a sarcastic, ironcic jibe about a doley?
