A Less Than Pleasent Ride

“Get outta my f**kng face!” he shouted.

Get out of your face? You bumped into me… that’s why I’m wearing my pint!

“Sorry… I didn’t see you!” I try to apologise.

“F**king invisible am I? Just a f**king mug not worth noticing, huh?” he scalds as his push knocks me back into the bar. My mind seems to jump at the same time as my heart misses a beat and my lungs forget to breathe.

I didn’t do anything?

“I di… di.. di… d… “ my stuttering is interrupted by his palm slapping into my cheek.

I didn’t…

“You di, di, di.. did what? F**king mug!” He mocks as he palms my face again. I’m trying to get away, almost clambering over the bar. Everything’s muffled… like being underwater at the swimming pool… I can hear the voices around me, but the faces are blurred… in fact the voices are blurred too… it’s like being on a ride at the fair ground.


I don’t like this ride. I want to get off. Someone please tell the man I want to get off!


My body jerks forward as a numb sickening pain creeps up from my groin and spreads up into the pit of my stomach.

The ride just got faster… the faces are even more blurred.

*SMASH*

Something just smashed? Sounded like it happened outside? My head hurts! The rides slowing… I can see the floor!

*THUD*

The ride’s slowing but it’s getting bumpy now. Someone’s taping in the distance and it’s in time with bumps. I wonder if they want the ride to stop as much as I do. Perhaps they’re enjoying it?

As the ride stops I notice that the worlds all on its side.

Funny, don’t remember the walls being like this… kinda carpeted! Wow, there’s a guy walking on the wall… Cool! Addias trainers, I like Addias! His got blood all over his trainers, I bet he's not happy! My mouth is all metallically tasting. There’s something sticky in my eyes. Feeling real tired. Maybe if I curl up a bit tighter I’ll go to sleep quicker?

There’s a bright blur shining in my eyes and everything is loud.

Close the curtains and turn down the racket… I don’t want to get up yet!

“You alright there mate? Can you hear me?”

Please just let me sleep…

“Right on three we’ll get him onto the stretcher. One… Two… Three!”

Wow… The worlds moving again must be on another ride… I prefer this ride, much slower than the other one. Hey, there’s Kevin “Kev, you’ve got to try this mate its great!”

“OK, shut the doors! Try to stop the bleeding!”

There’s loud siren going off in the background.

Could someone shut that noise up… I’m trying to sleep. I’m so tired!

No thank god. This is a purely fictional one based very loosely on a few things I've seen. Unfortunately though, although fiction, its nowhere near as brutal as the events that happen all over the world everyday over stupid stituations like a spilt drink.

I've just read that over at Shikon, Gav.
I think you are getting dark in your writing mate. Having said that I still liked it.

The thing is that the way the person in the story reacted probably accounts for about 70% of people. Maybe higher.

As you've probably noticed mate, I've been exploring different styles of writing recently. Most of my articles although usually ranty and soap boxy but usually littered with light hearted puns. I wanted this one to get people in their minds eye to actually pictured how these situations can happen and what you're thought processes are like. And to be honest mate I think the percentage is probably much much higher.

Sorry if it was a bit too dark... the next one is about the true reality of the door and will be a lot lighter!

Nice story mate, accurate and something I've seen plenty of times. It's sad when people who don't want to escalate a misunderstanding get caught in a brawl. It's dangerous when people freeze, or think too much about something when they should be prepared to defend or run. Sometimes you have to tell yourself that things are going to get difficult, and it's time to prepare for it...but when you're not ready for it, and have perhaps had a few pints and are in a congenial mood, your ability to perceive a threat for what it is becomes blurry.

I don't usually hang out in pubs much, but the bars/clubs I do go to have excellent bouncers, bless em!

Oh yeah!

Sounds like a right bundle of joy.

Are you trying to put me off the idea, mate?

Trust me mate... it'll be a lot more light hearted and a lot lot closer to the reality of the door than usually get's written about! Probably will put you off too!

Too late mate.
The course is booked for the end of the month so the wheels are already turning.
