AN evening spent playing board games has caused a boyfriend to behave in a way never seen outside armed conflict.
Mild-manner digital sales manager Tom Logan unexpectedly began acting like an army general leading his troops into battle when playing Trivial Pursuit with his girlfriend Lauren Hewitt against another couple.
Hewitt said: “It started getting weird when Tom said we had to develop a strategy based around capitalising upon ‘the enemy’s weaknesses’, namely Charlotte’s poor knowledge of celebrity trivia and Martin being generally thick.
“Then Tom started talking to Charlotte about Dua Lipa and asking Martin about his GCSE results in what he said was psychological warfare designed to undermine their confidence in victory. I did feel that calling Martin a ‘f**king dipshit’ was a bit unnecessary.
“Finally, Tom went completely off-piste and wasn’t even asking questions from the cards but making them up himself, and I’m pretty sure some of the people he mentioned in those questions weren’t even real.
“When I called him out on it, he mumbled something about El Alamein, Montgomery and having to ignore the rules for the greater good sometimes.
“After they’d left in a huff he started on about Mafia wars and said he hoped Charlotte and Martin ended up sleeping with the fishes. Is that a nice thing?”
