A MAN who is hammered after two pints still claims it is a ‘medical problem’, friends have confirmed.
Junior solicitor Nathan Muir has proved unable to manage more than an hour down the pub without being visibly smashed, but continues to insist this is because of alcohol intolerance.
Friend Martin Bishop said: “I was with Nathan the first time he got paralytically drunk on half a bottle of Echo Falls rosé and vomited in my mum’s pond. Nothing’s changed.
“But, ridiculously, he still claims he experiences an ‘unusual reaction’ to alcohol rather than simply admit that he’s a complete fucking lightweight.
“I’m not sure medical science can yet explain why a hypersensitivity to hops would make a sufferer red-faced, rambling and belligerent after two pints of Stella, but perhaps Nathan knows more than they do.
“And the next day’s text saying he can’t believe he feels so dreadful given that he didn’t drink that much, saying it’s his ‘syndrome’. I’ve told him it’s because he gets pissed quicker than a Yorkshire terrier but he’s having none of it.”
Muir said: “You’d think this terrible accident of body chemistry would stop me drinking. But I won’t let it beat me.”
