If you have a bad experience at a club, you are entitled to write a bad review. This is exactly what one University of Edinburgh student did after going to a party hosted by local venue Fly Club earlier this month, when she gave them one star on Facebook and wrote, "Shit music, rude staff!! Hated it. Never going back."

Fair enough. Most companies would probably either ignore this review or give a perfunctory, business-friendly response, but the management of Fly Club decided to take to the comment section to make it clear that they remembered the interaction differently, and the result is amusing people all over the world, reports UK tabloid the Mirror.

Although we have no idea what actually transpired at this venue on the night the student is talking about, the club's response is undeniably kind of amazing. After all, she was probably not expecting to be told that Fly Cub's owner would "cherish [the review] until the day [they] died." If you're planning on getting in an argument online soon, it could be good to study this for inspiration.
