I’ve moaned plenty of times in the past about my mates inability to go out much nowadays – due to rubbish excuses such as: being married/having babies/having long term girlfriends whereby they might as well just emigrate to the other side of the world etc etc.
So I was suprised the other day to hear my phone beep to a text message from one of my mates suggesting a night out. Marvellous news I think – it’s about bloody time somone else suggested something and got their arse in gear to go out. The surprise expression didn’t last long though and it turned to laughter a few words later.
He wasn’t wanting to arrange a night out for that night, the next night or even this coming weekend. When did he want to out?
The 30th of May.
Yes, thats the 30th May 2009. Still over 2 months away. Now do you see how rubbish some of my mates are?!
The only things you book that far in advance are holidays, parties, weddings, concerts to go to, festivals to get wasted at etc. Not a normal night out.
These are dark days ladies and gentlemen. Dark days indeed.
