I love blagging!Ive used the whole "I work for a music magazine" line myself, a couple of years back I spent the summer working out in Ibiza and we were constantly skint....a friend had managed to get us a couple of free tickets for a club but once we were inside we couldnt even afford the ridiculous drinks prices, so we thought we would try to blag the VIP room!Ibiza is renowned for being ultra choosy on who it lets in but we thought it was worth a try, so we just sashayed up asking if "such and such" was in there and that we worked for "Mixmag" Magazine and they let us right in!!!Once inside we got to rub shoulders with the rich and famous and had the treat of a free bar all night and buffet as well as a car home!!!!Hey, so its tacky and its kinda cheap, but when your skint you just have to do it!was such a laugh!!!
Another thing we did....this is quite shameful..... me and my mate were in Rome about 3 months ago and we were on a really tight budget. We went to the Colosseum and the queues were horrendous and were a bit concerned about the prices....I dont know how it happened but we kinda got caught up within a group of 30 German schoolkids, they must have been about 15-16...next thing we sort of got swept along with them and before we knew it we were going through the special "groups and educational visits" gate and being headcounted as part of the class, the people didnt even notice!!!!Once through the gate we mate a sharp turn just in case we had been collared, and left our good "classmates" behind!!!!We then got a free trip of the Colloseum, not that we are too cheap to pay for the cause of heritage but it just kind of happened and it saved us a fair few euros for some nice pizza and pasta!!!!Very dishonest I suppose but you have to laugh!!!How the hell we passed for German schoolkids I will never know....you think the British accents would have given us away, never mind the fact we were old enough to be their teachers!!!!
