    So yeah, got back from a mates birthday night out in newcastle. Got racism from a bouncer in the entrance to a club, pushed him off and walked off. He was grabbing my arm stopping me from getting in so i basically shoved him off me. Felt a bit bad really because i don't really go out on a night much. Is this a normal experience for students in general in regards to bouncers? Also a localler was taking the piss too and i didn't really like that. But i just laughed at them and walked off. Didn't want to fight as the bouncers bigger mate was behind him.
    What club was it at? People are normally alright up here.

    Just don't be a **** to them and you'll be fine. They are there to keep the idiots out of the club/pub.
    Most bouncers I meet are sound blokes if you are nice to them.

    Yeah generally they are power hungry **** heads. Ultimately you just have to remind yourself how their lives are going no where.
    Very good description of a bouncer. However, I'm not sure there's any point of remembering that their lives are going nowhere.

    Personal security, of any form, is a respectable field and I can think of many other fields that would be far worse to work in.

    The trouble is that these days, so few people actually take pride in their work and are more interested imagining that they "deserve" to be someone else, doing something else: i.e. imagining in their head that they're a celebrity, a musician, a gangster, a model... In London, where there are many fields where you can "compete" in, this attitude is really heightened.

    You come across people who have achieved absolutely **** all, have no skills but still live in a bubble where they're some hotshot.

    I've noticed a massive difference between how bouncers do their job in the UK (and some other European countries) and how they do it in North America.

    I've seen so many British (and French and Spanish) bouncers abuse their position and beat people unnecessarily simply because they have a score to settle. I say this because the last time I saw this, it was 3 of them on me after I insulted them (this is after the bouncer threw a random insult at me as I was going out and I was trying to speak reason to him but the guy was such a braindead **** that he didn't get it).

    In Canada, I had a friend drop his trousers in the middle of a club because he was completely wasted. Literally 10 seconds later, 5 bouncers were on him and dragged him out of the club. No aggressiveness, no insults involved: they just spotted a guy who was drunk, probably too drunk to be in the club and chucked him out. It was the end of the night so noone got upset but this is what I call proper conflict management, or rather, avoidance. My friend might have dropped his boxers next (who knows) and if you're the kind of club who doesn't want its female customers to have to expect guys getting undressed on the dancefloor, then you have to manage things this way. Of course if you're some tacky, ****hole of a club, then you probably will let this stuff go on.

    Same thing in New York where we didn't get into the first club because my friend was drunk. They didn't speak down to him or make fun of him. Just professionally, asked him a few questions and because he wasn't making sense told him he couldn't come in. If he had acted aggressively, 3 bouncers would have been on my friend and they wouldn't have taken any crap.

    To cause a North American bouncer to behave like a British bouncer usually would, you've really got to throw a wave of nasty insults in each direction. Most of them just treat you as a customer who is no longer welcome and don't even bother getting involve in some petty squabble like British bouncers do. In my opinion, a bouncer should be the one acting professionally. If the customer wants to act like a **** then you continue doing your job professionally. 90% of times, it's the client that looks stupid, especially if they're drunk, but so many bouncers here stoop low and try to settle scores, throw insults, try to prove something.

    It's a bit tragic that in the UK, being a bouncer is seen as a reject's job where most of the guys who are in it, are just former thugs who have some grudge against their clients, which in some cases, is justified.

    To be honest, this is one of the reasons why I don't enjoy going out in the UK that much: too many people with attitude problems. Rather than going out just to have fun, too many people go out to prove something: that they're a stunner that all the guys want to bone, that they're a tough guy... Sure, I've seen this in plenty of other countries but in London, it's really striking.

    that's a bit harsh, you have to think that their entire job is dealing with drunk ********s, it's not surprising that they don't treat you particularly nice. Generally If you don't **** with them they wont **** with you.

    i knew a few guys who were doormen, nice guys doing a necessary job.

    mate, consider the facts for a minute. I'm 5ft11 and 180 pounds at 8% bodyfat. That guy was like 5ft8 and fat. I would have raped him. A little common sense please. Don't be the prat who assumes all bouncers are hard, they're not all hard, i have seen enough evidence of that. I don't usually go out, i train 4 times a week while he is waiting on doors catabolising, do you seriously think he stands a chance without his mate?
    Facepalm.

    You'd have got owned so bad you wouldn't even have known about it for two days. What do you think these guys do for a living? Maybe if you added to the end of your nothing intimidating body dimensions 'and I have 4 years of kickboxing/mma with sparring' you wouldn't sound like such an idiot. Even then, before you've even got into a proper stance this fat bloke has rushed you and slapped you in the side of the head to burst your eardrum to disorientate you and is twisting your manhood upsidedown in his little fat hand.

    Tbj they are not as bad as they used to be.

    I recall a time when majority of them were ex cons (no joke)

    It has gotten better now although I still dont like them

    Anyway if I get any hassle off them (I look younger than I am) I just tell them what I think of them and leave. Its only a club and I prefer house parties better

    what was unnecessary? I'm stating a fact because the OP mentions bouncers and potential racism.
    No. You are implying that in most cases the racism does not really occur, it is just that a particular person assumes it is racism because they are black, almost victimising themselves. The implication in this case unjustified given that you do not know what type of racism it is.

    Yes they are. They're usually deadbeats who feel this little power they're given makes them rulers of the freeworld....when in actuality they're just fat middle aged blokes who can't get laid.

    I remember giving my US id to a bouncer in England after saying "Hi, how you doing?" he looked at it for about a solid minute and then said sorry you can't come in. I told him he was a fat [email protected] and walked off laughing.

    Same as most girls I'd assume, I've never had a problem with bouncers. Most are great to have a chat with and have told guys to back off the instant they see me and friends being hassled. Drunk people all day, I know I couldn't do it.

    On the subject of 'small bouncers', one at the local pole dance club (I go to the bar at the top, honest!) is 5"2 and came out top in a 6 on 1 fight. Just sayin' OP
