AN OFFICE colleague is ready to go and get hammered at literally a second’s notice, his co-workers have confirmed.
IT manager Martin Bishop will go to the pub with any colleague after any shift and is prepared for it to become an all-night session or even a full weekend without any warning at all.
Friend Tom Booker said: “It doesn’t have to be Friday, there doesn’t need to be anything to celebrate, there doesn’t even need to be a match on.
“If I say, exploratively, ‘Fancy going out on the lash?’ on a Monday evening at 4.55pm he’s already got his coat on.
“I could text ‘Pint?’ in the middle of a morning meeting and he’d be at my desk with a hungry look.
“I mean he’s probably a functioning alcoholic but I have to admit it comes in really handy.”
Bishop said: “What’s wrong with wanting to be shitfaced all the time?
“Didn’t this used to be Britain, for Christ’s sake?”
