I hate it even more because around here our street is being taken over by US airforce personnel from the two nearby airbases. It’s like a fucking ghetto. Streets full of bloody great gas guzzlers. Being woken at 5:30am when they fuck off to work. It’s a nightmare and it’s not going to get any better while the locals are priced out of the rental market by the mighty dollar!
But that’s not the only reason I hate Halloween. I hate it because it’s the start of the enforced jollity and piss up season. You know – that period where we use the run up to christmas as an excuse to do fuck all.
It’s Bonfire Night next that runs for a week and now gets prolonged by diwali. Then the yanks jump in again with their Thankgiving piss ups. What the fuck are they giving thanks for? Perhaps that they’re here not in their own shit country?
And have you tried getting a meal in restaurant between now and christmas? No fucking chance! All full of office parties. And then, just when you think it’s all coming to an end there’s the week long christmas when we all pretend to like each before going back to hating each others guts after yet another piss up and bang bangs on new years eve.
Yes, that’s why I hate Halloween. I wish the yanks would fuck off home and take their airbases and retailfests with them!
