Wham!

Rumour has it that a couple of sheep fans thought it would be a great idea to test the structural integrity of the new EK company villas with a car.
Hopefully no other injuries other than some dented egos and pride, who will get the bill I wonder?

From the title of this thread, I thought falcon was going to throw another of his famous, come dressed as your favourite pop group parties. They were really popular on the Jag Sqns .I have heard the sheep snagging isn't compulsory if you go to them though .

Seems I was wrong . Again.

Don, I was thinking it might be another "fun" summer thread.

Speaking of which, did that guy ever reach the top floor of Millennium?

(OK ok I'm going...)

I heard the boys in faded green got involved and at least one of our colleagues is probably staring at three walls and a set of iron bars as I type this.

And I suspect the building with the little windows is a package substation. Might have made a fireworks display if that was clobbered !!

This sort of thing happens every year during "[email protected]" season, with the occasional notable standout event. The trick is to do it without hitting any brick walls.

Everyone's in it together. Shame on the neighbours for taking images and sharing them around. Who are they to judge...
I'd rather live next to the guys who were on the lash than the slimy neighbours anonymously posting images on social media. They're the real wankers IMHO and should be "outed" too.

Shame on the people next door ? And what if a young kid had been walking by ?
That place is a community . If some prick crashes his car because he has been drinking and driving in there to that extent ... screw him . It ainít tennage fun . Itís middle aged stupidity and there is always a price to pay . Unless your management .

I hear all three are in Jail for now.

What's with all the judgements? For sure it was not right or responsible or civilized.
But to go report and publish so your neighbour and colleague goes to jail (particularly in the UAE), I think is a rather measly way to go about it.

Pity is, we give more and more reasons to management to treat us like adolescents. This is not the only story around lately.

Would you be saying that if one of your kids was knocked down by one of these guys?? Or if they flew while pissed up?? The consequences of driving under the influence are well known. They all knew that.

The problem is DW, this would be a serious offence in any civilised country, and would be reported as so. It's a family compound where kids play.

To do it in a country where being drunk in public, as well as at the wheel are criminal offences... then more fool you (or them). I'm with the majority on this one.
