My friends and I would normally attend Thompson's garage two or three times per week. It is a local club near our homes and we have all been been loyal visitors from we turned 18 years old. Last night we were heading to the club and went to walk in past the bouncers each having 3-4 forms of identification each to prove our age. I approached a male bouncer and showed him one form of ID before leading to him asking for another, I then showed him my second form and he let me through. While standing waiting on my friend showing her identification a women bouncer (apparently the 'boss') shouted to the bouncer looking at her Identification "send her to the back of the line, she's not getting in tonight" I find this comment extremely embarrassing towards my friend due to the fact she had 4 forms of identification with her, she attends the club 2-3 times per week and she has always been a loyal customer. After being turned away by a female bouncer that didn't even look at her identification the male bouncer then turned to me and said "that's not you on that ID either", I offered to show him my social media on my phone but he didn't give me the time of day. We then tried to get into the club again by going to the back of the line, when we got to the top of the line the female bouncer then shouted "them girls have already tried to get in, don't let them through" my friend then went and asked the female bouncer what the problem was and the way she spoke to my friend was almost on the verge of being aggressive. While walking away from the club the a bouncer then started shouting down at us "Oi Oi just you walk away" in front of a crowd of people which was extremely embarrassing. My other friend Erin then saw a girl she knew, she was 15 years old being let into the club, Erin shouted through the bouncers "she's 15 and shes been let in", all of a sudden the bouncers started shouting comments at Erin publicly humiliating her to the point that she was in tears. Not to mention the amount of 15, 16 and 17 underage people being let into the club with fake ID's is ridiculous. Many people on drugs also attend the club and there didn't seem to be a problem with them being let through the door. Never in the 2 years I have been attending Thompson's have I experienced such embarrassment of that female bouncer not letting us 19 year olds with many forms of identification through the doors. I can proudly say my friends and I will never be attending the club again and Thompson's garage have lost out 4 loyal customers due to the rude bouncers at the door.
