8 thoughts on “Update: Crime and Punishment at Alobar 1000

  1. Hi Mr. Irfan,
    I work here at the above mentioned hostel where you have allegedly claimed that we have charged $550 on the credit card of Mr. Matt Faherty. First of all, please check your facts straight before you print anything. It is not $550, it is 550 Nepali Rupees (equivalent of $5.50). Secondly, we charged his credit card for the booking he did not show up on the 14th of March and not for the so-called damages. This is just our policy. I am sure you Americans are well aware of policies in your country. So, before you go and ruin the world make sure you have the facts straight and then act accordingly.
    Btw, we are sorry about Matt’s experience here at our hostel. We are very proud of our establishment and the services we provide but we don’t guarantee that you will have the best of times here. We do our best and it may not meet your demands. If you have travelled extensively in south Asia you must know that incidents like this happen.
    We are just sorry that it happened here at our hostel.
    Anger and hatred is not going to solve the problems.
    Please let your leaders and countrymen know this.


    • Just a bit of a reality check: What I did was quote Matt and then crack a joke about his report. If you click the link of the post, you’ll see that it was Matt who was making the claim about the $550, not me. I’ll alert him to your version of the story. Meanwhile, I’d suggest that you learn how to read before making sanctimonious requests about fact checking. While you’re at it, you may want to acquire a sense of humor.

      I don’t quite see how anyone has “ruined the world” here, but if you think the world has been ruined by anything that I’ve printed on this blog, I’d be semi-interested to know how you’ve reached that conclusion. I guess part of my interest is inspired by curiosity about how an adult could bring himself to make such a ridiculous claim, and partly by my doubt that you are an adult. If you’re not, you should probably try to reach adulthood before you run a commercial establishment and/or shoot your mouth off about it.

      You may be very proud of your establishment, but from Matt’s description, I think that belief could use some revision. Certainly your chicken noodle soup leaves something to be desired. Granted, hatred doesn’t solve problems, but if you read very carefully, you will discover that no one has expressed any. As for anger, you may well find some of that expressed. However, anger is a legitimate response to a grievance. One problem it solves is that it lets the source of a problem know that they have a problem that needs resolution. Just in case you were wondering, your service was the source of the problem. Now you know.

      As per your request, I am forwarding this entire communication to the President of the United States, the United States Congress, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and my local town council. At long last, America will learn the truth: what happened at Alobar 1000 was an inside job.


    • Matt,

      I noticed that you haven’t yet traveled to Pakistan. So the real test will be whether Alobar 1000 measures up to the standards of a Pakistani hostel.

      By the way, I’ve charged your credit $1,000 for the two comments you’ve posted. I forgot to mention that there is a $500/comment charge for posting at PoT.

      PS. I know it’s your birthday on Monday, so happy birthday. Clearly, your South Asian trip has been your rite de passage to manhood. But who knew that the passage to manhood was so thoroughly flecked with vomit?

  4. You got sick in Nepal, wow, cool story bro, just one thing, to eat something at 7pm and start feeling sick at 8pm doesn’t sound right to me, it takes a while for food poisoning to kick in so I think it was either something you ate or drank earlier or maybe you didn’t wash your hands at some point earlier on in the day. Atleast everything I have learnt studying Microbiology at uni suggests this scenario.
