    “I'm over here for a week with EMC carrying out MVT (Manufacturing Validation Testing) to set up a new distributor for a new product called Vspex Blue.

    Now what is Vspex Blue and where can we get it ?

    Posting on his Facebook page, Liam added pictures of the duo’s day together in Ferrari World - saying light-heartedly of Shakiha that he had “some craic with the hoore all day.”

    Brilliant, fair play to him.

    It's better than what normally gets posted on FB though.

    He did a nice thing for that guy, "likewhoring" post or not.

    Not as bad as those guys who play guitars to the homeless, but certainly a touch of self promotion about it.

    Bet he get the roide for that

    No they are actually genuine.

    I've often thought, if ever I was unlucky enough to lose the roof over my head, what's the first thing I'd want? Some cnut with a guitar doesn't even come close.

    I am curious though, given that they are both foriegners, why is he "Irishman" and the other guy is the "Indian Migrant"?

    Did he do anything for the hundreds of thousands of Indian/Asian slave workers in that part of the world?

    If he's in construction then his company could be employing sub contractors who pay their slave workers a pittance.

    Maybe he thought it was just humorous or light hearted or would cheer someone up? You're going to die someday.at least try to enjoy yourself.

    How did breaking.ie get wind of this story?

    Did Liam go and do something out of the goodness of his heart and then call the press to announce it?

    I don't think there's ever been a thread on here that I cared less about.

    What about the thousands over the years that you didn't read or post on?

    Yea, call me cynical, but it also bothers me that people do something nice just to get attention and "likes" from other people. It's like people don't do something for themselves and the other person, it has to be for the whole world.

    To quote Scroobius Pip -
    So I won't put the nice things we do on YouTube
    Don't need the world the world to love me - I just need you to

    Fcuk it, even it is a bit of self promotion, he didn't have to do it but he did it, so fair play.

    Man does something nice for a fellow man without repercussions and people here worry about sincerity? Smmfh.

    What have you done yourself for slaves?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,342 ✭✭✭fatknacker


    I think he would have rather enjoyed the park with someone than be in there alone and didn't want the driver waiting all day was probably his main motivation instead of getting likes on fb.
    Sharing his story was just another part to it.
    Jesus there are some amount of miserable knobs here.

    Ah piss off.

    He's not wrong though, if the only reason you're helping someone out is so you can get 5 minutes of fame on facebook, then you need to have a good long look at yourself.

    There are plenty of people who quietly help people out every day, thankfully most of them don't feel the need to turn it into a clickbait story on social media.

    ah will you stop you moan bag.
    It's a decent story and if more people in the UAE treated the poorer folk there like this it would be a better place.

    He did a really nice thing and while you slag off the facebook element you should consider that FB is for family and friends somebody else chose to share this to a wider audience.

    I've 220 friends on fb - if I did something nice and posted about it I'd say 50people would read it and they'd be close family/friends rather broadcasting it worldwide.
