Leeds family create fake holiday in their own house
« on: February 17, 2021, 02:59:45 PM »
On the one hand, it is a bit astonishing how this was deemed worth a story on BBC News, but it is quite impressive the lengths that the family went to for their fake holiday in "Hodgeland".

They created fake airline tickets, airport announcements, flight gates and a fake plane journey - they even had a fake airport departure lounge (could have had a fake ride to the airport as well).

Quote
Scarlett said: "I loved being on the aeroplane with the snacks and watching a film, then we came home and there was leaves and flowers everywhere."

Mr Hodgson said his expectations were "blown out of the water".

"The little details really made it, she built a website to check in our passports for our flight, pre-recorded airport announcements and put tropical air fresheners around the room," he said...
The family said the remainder of the holiday would include family games, time by the "pool" and getting a takeaway to sample "some of the local cuisine".

Has anyone on here gone to such lengths to keep their children/other adults/themselves entertained?

Can't believe they went to the effort of elevating their house 30,000 feet in the air.

They should have hung a load of full size watering cans from the ceiling to represent that it usually rains at least half the time on holiday.

I hope they undercooked something, gave themselves the both-ends runs, and also burnt the best part of ten grand

Why they would bother recreating all the shite bits about going on holiday is beyond me.

Because they are mental sewer dwellers, encumbered by torpor. A doll house where the dolls have become self-aware.  A citadel of dolour, wretched and woebegone. Proprietors skulking and writhing in their squalid tomb.

Just a guess off the top of my head though. Could be something else.

That's all going on holiday is. It's waiting for stuff, looking at departure boards, and queueing.

Can't wait for these dickheads to be paraded around as irrefutable proof that furlough was a doss at the tax payers' expense and that we need to cut everything to the bone ASAP.

Hope you enjoyed your little fuck about and getting on the news because the poorest and most vulnerable are going to fucking die for your five minutes of fame.

Beat me to it.

The only thing worse than this (for us, not them) is if they'd done it for Sir Captain Tom Moore's Foundation and we were forced to clap for the family every Thursday.

I love how, free to the limitless extent of their imagination, they still included all the shit, unbearable parts of the holiday.

Quote from: bloke in article
We’ve all been feeling a bit down recently and so my wife decided we were going on holiday. I was told that I was taking Tuesday and Wednesday off and she’s been working on a secret plan

Imagine his disappointment when he realised this was what she'd been planning and not an actual fuck-the-lockdown holiday.

To be fair if I had to entertain a small child during lockdown I might do something like this. If you don't want them watching TV all day when they aren't doing schoolwork, what else do you do with them?

Maybe I have been a bit harsh on this family.

Aw, that's lovely. Still not as good as our Leeds half term holiday with our four year old, going to the park and chucking ice at the seagulls and then watching Star Wars.

A paper publishes a nice heartwarming story about a family finding novel and inventive ways to get through lockdown and brighten their child's day, and you all piss on it from a height.

I love this place.

She's a kid, the film she watches on the plane is probably the highlight. And the parents are instagram cunts, so they get to show off on the internet which is probably the highlight for them.

Have you time-travelled from 1990?  Nowadays, there's sexting, cyberbullying, online porn, chat-site groomers and computer games that simulate bloody violence to keep 'em occupied.

I wonder if they simulated the parents getting fed up of each other, manifesting in increasingly snappish/passive-aggressive comments.

I mean, the Captain Tom thread went from "check out this lovely bit of news" to "he raped brown kids regularly" within the space of 24 hours, no heartwarming story is safe.

That's why I added in that last bit about loving this place. It wasn't sarcastic. I love that Captain Tom was heartwarming for about two posts and then people started piping up with "bit of a grim dystopian nightmare though, having a 100 year old shambling around his garden to raise money for the NHS" and about five seconds later people were actively wishing for his death. It's fucking great.
