People like you who claim that IDs are fake are my mortal enemies. I had a bouncer confiscate my legal ID when I was 23 years old. He wouldn't give it back, and when I had my lawyer contact the bar to get the ID back, they claimed they didn't have it. Then I ran into trouble getting my ID replaced, because the government wanted a police report to prove it had really been taken from me, but I didn't have one to show. So I spent the next 5 years without a valid ID, which meant I couldn't get a job or anything like that, and I became homeless until my family took me in, all because some fascist like you wanted to give me hell and claim my ID was fake when it really wasn't.

I have made it my mission in life to kill anyone who is in the capacity to check IDs, be it bouncers, or the people who ask for ID when one uses a credit card at the grocery. I will enact a killing spree until your scourge is wiped from the earth.

I am a 31 year old short-statured woman of 4'8", with a flat chest and a baby face, so people mistake me for a child. BUT I AM NOT A CHILD!!! I will murder the next person and anyone from then on who thinks that just because someone is small that they couldn't possibly be an adult. If you told people that you thought their ID was fake because they were young-looking, I am going to come kill you!

Well, congratulations. You're insane.

Asked by double trouble over 8 years ago

Think about your question for a minute. Why not ask why you find yourself in situations where your drunken behaviour has the possibility of leading to physical altercations?

Work it out, man. Go see a therapist. Hug your father or something. Don't hang your immature shit out for all the world to deal with.

How many people become bouncers in the Unites States?

Asked by Marcos Regalado over 8 years ago

How the hell would I know that?

To perform the "pat down" procedure, does the bouncer HAVE to be the same gender as the one being searched?

Asked by Me! almost 9 years ago

I never worked in the kind of place that needed pat downs. I would assume they would have to be the same gender. I can't imagine a male bouncer giving a 'pat down' to a female patron and getting away with it. If they could there would be a lot more 'mandatory pat downs' going on at bars and clubs.

I heard that bouncers are to search visually through handbags and not physically with their hands. Is is true?

Asked by Jason almost 9 years ago

I don't know, I never searched any handbags. At the end of the day who cares what the rules are? It's unenforceable. Are you going to tell a cop, "Hey, this guy physically searched my hand bag, he didn't do it visibly!"

is the bouncer wrong if he picks an argument. I show no agrression what soever. Then the guard punched me in the face. Then the full bouncer staff pummeled me while i was on the floor. Cops took statements. He was also beside me boasting near cops.

Asked by unicorn over 8 years ago

I do not believe a word you are saying. I have never seen anyone get 'punched in the face for no reason'.

I've seen a lot of people claim they've been 'punched in the face for no reason' after acting like aggressive drunk assholes all night.

Asked by beagle about 8 years ago

I'm not sure what could happen. Hopefully it would involve a lot correct punctuation.
