A MAN who confidently told friends he was sticking to soft drinks caved after a pathetically short period of time.
Martin Bishop arrived at the Golden Lion pub proclaiming he would not be drinking due to an important meeting the next day, but was halfway through a pint of Stella within 420 seconds.
Administrator Bishop said: “I was full of good intentions because the last time I had a meeting when I’d been out the night before I kept being sick in my mouth every time my boss’s back was turned.
“Sadly as soon as I was offered a lovely cool glass of beer I just couldn’t resist. It was like being drawn to a seductive siren made out of 5% lager.
“If I’d stopped after three I’d have been fine. But I ended up having seven and then my mate persuaded me to go to a nightclub called Fanny’s.
“I don’t know what happened after that but I woke up this morning lying next to a half-eaten kebab. At the meeting I was praying for it to end before I was sick in a bin.
“Obviously I’m never drinking on a week night again. Next week it’s Diet Coke all the way at my old drinking buddy Steve’s leaving do.”
