mean to say no one seems really satisfied with that they got. So I suppose we will watch it on TV.. I shall look forward to seeing how it ALL GOES.

We are satisfied. So you can no longer say "no one". Spoilt the aibu in one go. grin

We're happy with our tickets too. Just wish we'd got more. (But then we'd be worrying about the cost of them!) Not going to ever go to the Olympics again.

Are you drunk?

JemimaMop Mon 27-Jun-11 19:47:32

We are satisfied - apllied for one event and got it.

golemmings Mon 27-Jun-11 20:36:17

ditto. Got exactly what we applied for and wanted. Probably won't even bother watching much more on the telly tbh. I follow the sport I follow; I don't do it because its the olympics or because its in a small corner of the UK.

Is your thread title an anagram?

Wait...

Are all your thread titles anagrams? They might make more sense that way wink

If you watch the table tennis we'll wave to you grin.

Actually, I think they didn't realise how over-subscribed the first round would be so it was a bit of a balls up. Second time round we were limited to 3 applications.

ShellyBoobs Mon 27-Jun-11 20:54:39

I got what I applied for: ...nothing! So can't complain.

To be honest Scousy, I'm not sure what you think they should have done instead? If they'd just sold them first come, first served, like most concert tickets are sold, that would have also resulted in a lot of disappointment too.

The only way to ensure that most applicants are sucessful is to charge such high prices that it's not so over-subscribed. Then you'd be complaining about how only tory toffs can afford to go.

They can't win, can they?

shelley boobs. EMPATHY means you put yourself in the shoes of the millions who were disappoined. At the cock up.

Do you belong to an org which wearts badges saying I AM A SELFISH WHATSIT....if not join

Are most people who post here totally self centred?

largeginandtonic Tue 28-Jun-11 10:36:43

I will be watching on tv too, like the masses i would imagine.

Hey ho.

CaptainBizarro Tue 28-Jun-11 10:37:39

I don't mean to be a prick, but I don't understand your thread title nor OP in order to decide whether YABU!

I got a couple of tickets for one of the less popular events & know other people who did as well. I've heard many say that it wasn't a fair system but that's lotteries for you. 'Chance' is the name of the game and disappointment comes with the territory. Ticket demand was high and it would have been even more unfair to run it on a 'Take That' basis, i.e. all sold out in the first five minutes.

I am happy with the tickets I have and I am self centered [smug emoticon]wink

the olyms a balls uppic

are you polish?

i am satisfied, applied for nothing, got nothing, will be in the Maldives the entire fortnight, so well happy smile

risingstar Tue 28-Jun-11 10:45:24

we will be watching on TV unless extra tickets become available next year, but we will go and cheer on the marathon then watch the closing ceromony on one of the big screens in a london park.

nobody here could agree on one event and i could not risk applying for everything that people wanted and face bankruptcy.( new year resolution not to use credit cards)

FranSanDisco Tue 28-Jun-11 10:46:22

We got jack and didn't bother with the second round. I only know of one person who got tickets from the first ballot for two events which is pretty poor as I know a few people grin. So therefore I think YANBU.

lurkedtoolong Tue 28-Jun-11 11:15:36

Being a selfish, self-centred, uncaring twunt I have to say I'm made up with my Olympic tickets. Got half of what I applied for on the first round, will be trying again on the second round. And going for Paralympic tickets too.

GabbyLoggon Tue 28-Jun-11 12:49:35

thats ok twats are an essential part of life. Move to scunthorpe. To be fair seb coelooked shocked when the BBC put the cock up to him. He knows its attracted mass publicity. Will we fuck up the games?

GabbyLoggon Tue 28-Jun-11 12:51:19

for starters we will not win much were it counts. Athletics. One gold. a few silvers.
