A MAN visiting London stupidly believed a night out in the West End would be enjoyable.
Macclesfield-based Tom Logan naively expected an evening in the world-famous entertainment district not to involve a gruelling series of disappointing activities.
Logan said: “When I suggested going to the West End the friends I was staying with all looked really tired and sad, which is not what I’d expected from Time Out.
“Going to the pub wasn’t much fun because they were all completely packed and we spent most of our time asking if stools were free and talking about going somewhere else.
“I wanted to see a musical but they were all attempts to cash in on old films so we ended up watching one based on Pretty in Pink. It wasn’t very good, even though someone out of Hear’Say was in it.
“Then we went to a Chinese restaurant which was definitely up to the standard of all the others I’ve been to, except for the staff clearly wanting us to eat and fuck off as quickly as possible.
“I did enjoy our three-minute ride in a rickshaw though, apart from when the driver turned out to be mental and we had a massive argument about the fare.”
Logan’s friend Nikki Hollis said: “Londoners only go to the West End if we’ve got someone visiting. We prefer to stay in and drink cheap gin and play Connect Four.”
