ARE you planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a totally selfish way? Here are some shitty things to inflict on your partner.
Take them somewhere only you want to go to
Keen to try the ‘all you can eat for £2.50’ deal at The Chicken ‘n’ Ribz Shack? Sit there ignoring your partner as you tear into piles of meat like a wolf covered in BBQ sauce. Or if you’re not into a meal, how about a romantic trip to the Imperial War Museum’s new exhibition about the Luftwaffe?
Your phone is more fun
Obsessively check texts, work emails and Facebook throughout the evening, as is normal. Or blatantly try to reach level 112 of some crappy game called Ninja Fruit Monkey Castle.
Whine about other people’s Valentine’s Days
Even if your partner has made an effort, keep mentioning Penny and Steve who are having a much better luxury weekend in Venice – with a balloon trip. If your loved one doesn’t tell you to shut the f**k up about your overpaid yuppie twat friends, they’re a ‘keeper’.
Combine Valentine’s Day with your weekly shop
Be super-efficient by going for a quick meal then dragging your partner round Asda to do your weekly shop while it’s nice and quiet. Then it’s back to yours for an evening of putting away tins and oven chips before going straight to sleep, happy in the knowledge that you’ve got some more Toilet Duck.
Just get p*ssed
If you’re not into Valentine’s Day, relieve the tedium by getting utterly wankered in the restaurant. Nothing says ‘romance’ like drunkenly arguing with a cab driver and having several abortive attempts at sex before passing out and pissing the bed.
