Whitley Bay for us. Playing chasey with your new pals around the caravans while the grownups sat around in deckchairs having a peeve. Good times indeed.

 

Feathers caravan park was our destination for the trades fortnight in the early 80s. I won the sports competition the first week one year only to get gubbed by weegies the following week.

My folks are from Glasgow and knew Portobello well from day trips in the 1950s. I take my kids to Porty and North Berwick and will often hear Glasgow accents. East Linkfs is mobbed by families from the west during the school summer holidays.

 Yep.

 

It will never change, as the scum don't actually realise they are scum.

 

 

 

That’s a very good point, one I had never before considered.  

 

All about the ‘upbringing’ I guess.

Beyond me pal, 2 cans o lager then go crazy.

 

I know, Harold.

 

Their heads are empty anyhow, then the lager, and the lack of good speech within, produce a surge of very poor behaviour, uncivilised and downright obnoxious.

The 50+ female generation are the worst.

Robbie William's has a lot to answer for.😄

I wonder sometimes myself😞 I’m not an aggressive confrontational person, so I don’t think I get as many problems as some. If you’re nice to most folk, they will be nice to you in return.

Had two guys last night who got in with about 10 cases of beer, cases of WKD and bottles of whisky. Whilst driving along he stabbed a can in the side and it started spraying all over the back of the taxi...why🤷🏼‍♂️🤬

As the saying goes...theres always one!

I would always rather deal with ten drunk men, than one drunk woman, and as for hen parties, I steer well clear.

“It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while.”

 Quote from Frank McCourt’s misery lit Angela’s Ashes.

Maybe a well behaved, respectful adolescence is no adolescence at all. Not condoning this behaviour but can understand it. Everyone flies with the crows at some point.

Parents need to take responsibility for these little *****.

No, not really. Large majority wont bother paying the fines. Where do you think they get their behaviour from in the first place.

My wife’s aunties are from Johnstone and they used to come through to Portobello every year - mind you that was 50 odd year ago.

 

Johnstone = NUTS. 😁
