I apologise for the title but this is seriously aggravating the hell out of me.
I work in Dublin, Baggot Street to be precise, and we are edging towards the end of what has been a dismal summer. Once again the Irish prayed for sunshine and we were let down, the one thing though that we did get like we do every summer is the influx of students from across Europe, coming over to learn english.
So why is the location of where I work so important, I will tell you why, Baggot Street has always been a hub for business and the pathways during the day are full of suits and well dressed ladies busily rushing around with their briefcases, shades and mobiles. For some strange reason the students have decided Baggot Street is the place to be.
They really piss me off, yesterday on my way to get a sambo I was walking along said street with a gaggle of spanish students ahead of me shouting at each other, not in an argument or something but for a chat then they all decided to stop and carry on shouting (talking) to each other while blocking the footpath. People said excuse me to them to try to get through and were ignored. So people ended up having to walk along a very busy road to get past, how fucking rude.
To further annoy me I got lunch, went back to work, did some work then went home. As I have said way back in a previous post, I bus it in and out to work. Well myself and another work colleague got on the bus at Kildare Street, and at the next stop we could not believe our eyes 35-40 students and 1 teacher embarking the bus. My colleague just had this to say "Oh my god, please dont let them get seats upstairs and I hope they are not going all the way to Bray, my head could not cope".
Well I am sure you figured it out they did all get seats upstairs and immediately began the shouting to one another but because they were dispersed all around the upper deck I found they had to shout louder then normal. Why oh why do they have to be so goddamn rude. The teacher should have had some control over them to get them to shut the fuck up, but oh no she also got involved.
Lucky for us they got of at UCD but by that stage the damage was done, and I had a throbbing headache all night.
