I hope you treated this with suitable contempt and burst out laughing in her face.

What a complete joke.

What next, student complains about rude customer service in Dunnes and the shopping centre is shut down "in case we have a repeat of Supermacs"?

A flare up the arse of some of these people would do them a world of good.

Would it not have occured to the student protestors to wait a few weeks anyway before complaining about college fees, after last week like?

Nope I didn't - she was just telling part of the reasoning behind the bank (not her) shutting. Not her fault imo, nor does she deserve contempt or a flare up the arse. You can't *make* people have a certain reaction/lack of reaction to the Supermacs Syndrome. Plenty of people think it was a disgrace.

So you think it likely that this


Was going to turn into a few hundred heavily pissed-up students having a party inside AIB?


Ok dear.

Nope, I didn't say that. But then again I am not the one who decides to close the bank. These guys look perfectly well behaved. Then again walk by 10 mins later and what you saw was a load of security guards closing a door and a load of people chanting in front of the building. Did I find it threatening? No. Was the banks decision to react this way (to what looks like a peaceful enough protest) influenced by the gobsh*tes in Supermacs the other night? Yes. Whether wrong or right, yes it was. So they did this cause at least nofavours with that 'craic'.

A YouTube video has been posted of Rag Week 2012 in Galway in the style of the movie Project X
Shows footage of Supermacs Eyre Square. It looks like a dodgy safari with chimps gone wild.
