;) Sorry for my overly aggressive replys. Just being strip searched by the police tends to put a bit of a pat down on your way into a club into perspective!

Im A Doorman in Croydon... from what i have been taught searches by law have to be done in a respectful and dignified way. we are NOT allowed to search inside clothing. Pockets are fine. We are also legally aloud with your permission to search inside wallets. i get a fair few people complain about this but it has to be done i have found so many wraps of cocaine from lazy people who have not bothered to hide it well enough, which i hate because it means i have to hold them for the police which is the worst part of my job i hate nicking people! hide your shit in your boxers! also i belief the reason you and your girl mates were not searched may be due to the fact males can only search males females can only search females. how ever males with permission can search inside your bag and any think inside your bag. touching of genitals is a NO NO! but it happens there is no point making a big deal about it wen it happens the searches are done for your safety at the end of the day. You are entering some ones private property its like entering someones home so take a search with a pinch of salt. most doorman are moody because of the amount of shit we get refusing dickheads entry and taking shit from them. again doing this for your safety so don't take any interaction personally its hard to be jolly all night long doing this job

Last Bangface the geezer on the door was properly going through all my pockets, going through my wallet, even flicking through the christmas cards I wrote out. I left my grinder in my pocket aswell and he confiscated it, I asked him if i could get it back at the end of the night and he said yea, when I found him at the end of the night he told me he'd thrown it in the bin...Surley he's not within his rights to throw away my possessions?

No he shouldn't do that but then what can you do? Can't exactly go to the police about it and bouncers know this.
