A MAN is facing an impossible dilemma between getting drunk in the pub or getting drunk at home.
Tom Booker, from Southampton, has been struggling with the tough choice since Tuesday but has yet to make any headway despite soliciting advice from friends, family and his local MP.
He said: “On the one hand there’s the glorious neon-lit carousel of the pubs, the nightclub, the freedom of vomiting on the open street and the intoxicating possibility of a fight in the taxi queue.
“On the other, there’s the familiar warmth of knocking them back in front of the telly, no need to dress up, no queues and your own comforting toilet to be sick in at the end of the night.
“How can I possibly spurn one of these two alluring sirens? How?”
He added: “I could always get pissed at home then go out, or go out then come home and keep getting pissed, but that doesn’t seem fair to anyone. No, I need to decide one way or the other and stop messing around.”
Booker has postponed making his final decision until after work, when he will thrash it out with friends over a few quiet pints, or possibly back at someone’s flat.
