“a derogatory term for a young working-class person who dresses in casual sports clothes” – Collins Dictionary
I love going to the cinema like many thousand other people, you want to go watch a certain flick , you buy your ticket, buy some popcorn and coke, give the usher your ticket and head off the screen your film will be on at. You go in find a seat and watch the movie, now that would be great? yes but alot times these days there’s always some 3 or 4 little teens come in blowing and popping chewing gums, swearing like a trooper (thats only the girls), as per usual go right upto the back row hang there feet over the seat in front them and swear there heads off at the couple in front them because they want to stick there feet over the couples seat but they refuse. Before the film starts and even through the trailers they blast the shitty hardcore techno music out in the screen and dont give a damn about anyone else. The film starts and all you can here is these idiots talking, laughing, throwing popcorn at other people trying to watch the movie. The big tough one of the bunch runs down about a 100 stairs and starts dancing in front of the screen screaming “YA BUNCH OF FANNIES!!!” the only people laughing are his other neddy mates, at this point the girls of the group have got up went out the screen 4 times and the film has on;y been on 20 minutes. Many people complain and half of the time the ushers dont care.
So everyone is getting pissed off with theses diddys now 2 of them are running around the screen and finally the lot of them are thrown out the cinema by the so called security staff.When I mean security staff when I worked as a usher I remember the 2 gaurds escorting the neds out the cinema, the gaurds joined the neds outside for a few ciggerettes. Ive seen alot of things happen because of these neds; Ive went into to check a screenand suddenly 2 female neds (or sengas as there called in scotland) decide to have a catfight with each other in a screen, the film was a childs film (Madagascar 2), Some neds got into a 18 film (all where under 18, about 12) opened the security doors and let 20 of there other friends in the ripped out 4 or 5 seats and one had a knife and slashed the screen, the police got involved. Another incident 5 or 6 of them aged between 10 and 18 went into a movie and sat with alcohol, which an adult brought in for them scream, sing, one was sick during the film, they where all removed about 30 minutes late the dad of the 18 year old came bursting into to the cinema found the usher whom the people who complained to about the group threw a punch at this usher broke his nose and screamed “he’s only a wee boy he only having a laugh” t. the usher who was assualted was only 16 and doing some Saturday work for pocket money.
I could go on forever with other reasons why neds should not be allowed into cinemas and into virtually anything. Society is quick to fire blame onto certain groups and not thinks about the other groups and when these punks get caught they dont care as it just earns them more browning points for there street cred. Hit them hard make them do hard labour, do some national service, it might sound cheesy coming from me as im part of a generation conscription wasnt around but speaking to guys my age group who where troublemakers before they went to the army are now the opposite. If I wanted to hear your crap music and or want to hear how many girls you had sex with (or kid on you had sex with) or how many cannabis joints you smoked last week, ill ask you. Its not going to get someone turn round to you and say “wow big man you are such a cool person”, its just going to get you more negative response. One of my cousins could be labelled a ned and he asked me why do people always say bad things about me? well I told him and told him that acting in the way he is wont earn him respect just give him more bad press.
Get a life Ya Bunch of fannies
