Absolute fucking muppets.

Bunch of dickheads
[–]Usergnome_Checks_0ut 23 points24 points25 points 16 days ago (9 children)
It’s Paddy’s weekend, it’s Temple Bar, they’re most likely tourists. Doesn’t make them any less of a bunch of muppets for still coming, but seen as they’re here, what are they supposed to do? Sit in their hotel rooms until their return flight? Everyone else is still going about their daily lives, no one seems to be staying indoors.
[–]Randyjewman 34 points35 points36 points 16 days ago (3 children)
They shouldn't have come, I was going to Amsterdam tomorrow till Tuesday but cancelled last week. I honestly can't believe people are being this stupid. My own brother went to his GP on Thursday feeling unwell with flu like symptoms, Dr said he was probably grand as had no fever but he had been in contact with someone just back from northern Italy so to isolate. He rings today and says he is going to knock into see my mother later, I said don't come as she is at risk he says ok that makes sense. An hour later the door bell goes and there he is coughing away saying he is grand. My mam let him in until I came back 5 minutes later and told him I loved him but to get the fuck out. I spent the next hour scrubbing everything he had been near. People are idiots, especially if it's your family tell them to cop the fuck on and stop putting people at risk.
[–]liamd99 1 point2 points3 points 16 days ago (0 children)
Thanks. Here in Amsterdam it is much quieter than normal, except the city centre. The tourists don't give a fuck, don't want to cancel their once in a year city trip I suppose.
[–]wlyllaaif 0 points1 point2 points 16 days ago (0 children)
There were literally people in the dedicated coronavirus subreddit, commenting on the post about Paddy's day being cancelled saying they were still planning on coming.
[–]Shay1604 3 points4 points5 points 16 days ago (4 children)
Yes ,!!! Yes they should have stayed indoors or cancelled their holidays simple as that
[–]cruiscinlan -5 points-4 points-3 points 16 days ago (3 children)
Because they're made out of money?
[–]teutorix_aleria 0 points1 point2 points 16 days ago (2 children)
You don't lose money by cancelling a holiday it's already spent. Public health is more important than any individual's holiday plans.
[–]cruiscinlan -1 points0 points1 point 16 days ago (1 child)
You're all heart Mr. Moneybags.
[–]teutorix_aleria -1 points0 points1 point 16 days ago (0 children)
I've probably got a lot less money than anyone who can afford to holiday in Ireland and drink in temple bar.
[–]PM_me_your_gangsigns 0 points1 point2 points 16 days ago (0 children)
Most of these younger people are going to be great asymptomatic carriers too. And the baseball cap-wearing obese older man in their midst is too thick to save his life.

[–]Schlack 51 points52 points53 points 16 days ago (3 children)
Its not worth queueing to get into in the best of times.
[–]Macko_Dublin 5 points6 points7 points 16 days ago (0 children)
Or at all

It was the best of times.. It was the blurst of times!!?

Ever. It’s not worth it ever
[–]munkybren 10 points11 points12 points 16 days ago (0 children)
I'm guessing there's a queue because the door staff are enforcing the 100 person capacity limit.
[–]mccrazymaccarthy 51 points52 points53 points 16 days ago (8 children)
I see dead people.
[–]LovelyTechno 18 points19 points20 points 16 days ago (7 children)
That's the worst part; these people are all young and just feel like they're being rebellious and want to enjoy themselves regardless of the circumstances, they know if they get the virus they'll most likely be fine so they don't consider anything beyond knowing that bit of information. In their minds, as long as they're going to be fine then that's all that matters and they won't make the sacrifices that we all need to make to play a part in slowing the virus spreading. It's completely depressing to realise how unwilling so many people are to think of the bigger picture. Even just knowing what this virus will cause for our nurses and doctors should make one feel happy to stay home as much as possible
Someone else on here was saying that in a pub they were working in this weekend there were loads of lads in their 70s who don't give a shit. We're just banging our head against the wall!
[–]mccrazymaccarthy 21 points22 points23 points 16 days ago (6 children)
I'm young ( 32, is that young? ), no fuckin way am I catching that shit and spreading it. I'm sort of in the middle ground. I'm not panic buying but I'm staying in. I also have a son and if the virus mutates it could harm the kids too. Risking all that for a few pints. Natural selection.

Sorry you're old old timer

Sure the government will take care of ye
[–]BlackMaxwell 1 point2 points3 points 16 days ago (0 children)
Same, 38, staying in, have kids, no panic buying. In truth our larder is normally well stocked with beans and pulses. We can live on chickpea curry, dahl & roti for a long time.

You are either part of the problem or part of the solution

Queueing up to get €7 pints and a potentially fatal illness.

A popular spot for Italian tourists.

Came to complain about their lack of regard for public health, stayed to complain about ankle socks' LED runners.
[–]andydrewq 0 points1 point2 points 16 days ago (0 children)
Take note of businesses that couldn't give a f*ck. Not that I'd ever step into the place (I'm not stupid enough to pay 7 quid for a pint) but I'm definitely heading over to Google reviews to express my feelings on the matter.

There a special kind of stupid.

the cunts who own the bar are worse than the cunts outside
[–]Mugembe -2 points-1 points0 points 16 days ago (1 child)
Cunts! If any of the assholes that were out in town tonight, screw you! You selfish fuckers, what if you pass it onto someone who is vulnerable and dies! My friends daughter has auto immune disease and if they catch it they fucking die you pieces of shit! Shame on you!!
[–]mrgrif04 -4 points-3 points-2 points 16 days ago (1 child)
thats the outside smoking area. the front door is to the left. and many tourists just huddle outside talking photos etc. thats not a queue.
[–]Dermotron[S] 9 points10 points11 points 16 days ago (0 children)
It’s a queue.. there were two staff on each door 🚪
[–]SeamusHeaneysGhostMayo -2 points-1 points0 points 16 days ago (0 children)
Deposit rotten fish everywhere inside!!

Did anyone having a whinge actually venture into the city to tell them to fuck off? Nope? Didn't think so.

That’s the smoking area not the que
[–]Dermotron[S] 7 points8 points9 points 16 days ago (3 children)
It’s definitely a queue .. there were two staff on each door
[–]ShaolinHash 0 points1 point2 points 16 days ago (2 children)
You’ve take a picture of the actual door it’s in the left corner
[–]Dermotron[S] 1 point2 points3 points 16 days ago (0 children)
Yes and... people are standing back from the door because the staff told them to . You can see the staff shirts at the door .

Let's the tourists kill each other I guess.

They'll spread it on public transport and in shops, restaurants, hotels etc.
[–]monkey_bubble 3 points4 points5 points 16 days ago (0 children)
And when they go home to their parents and grandparents.
