While I've had more than 3 pints in one night, it was over the course of several hours, not all at once, some uh... drink responsibly, Anna!

After all, one has to seize an opportunity when it comes served up on a silver platter!

Mel Cormac
Exactly! What else is she going to do with an opportunity like this?

Boy oh boy, bitching your friend out for being an asshole is a rather thirst inducing endeavor.

It's the funniest thing that Anna is just making the most of a crappy birthday celebration by taking everyone's deserted beer. What a champ!

Well one person should have fun at least!

Hmmm. Anna is not tall, she is not wide, and she is not girthy or brawny. It's also no fun to sit by yourself drinking slowly unless you have something to do or you're in the right place fishing for free drinks and attention with a short skirt. Am I correctly predicting that Anna is about to chug her ill-gotten loot and become seriously pissed? That could be dangerous without reliable friends around to keep her alive, well, and away from the attention of the local constabulary.

Honestly, slurping down beers one after the other while alone does not strike me as a good time. I'm not sure whether that is actually different for Anna, or if she instead just doesn't realize it is the same for her as well until it's too late.

She's tall-ish Yeah, though I'm neither tall nor broad nor brawny I can drink a fair amount, but not as quickly as she'd have to for them to not get cold, so

At least it'll be fun for a while?
anonymous coward (Guest) edit delete reply
She may be taller than the local feminine average, but at least in this installment she looks even more noodly-skinny than Seth the stickman. If that's right then it's all down to her liver and kidneys to deal with the boozeahol since she doesn't have enough meat to help them stall for time.

I wonder who would take responsibility for Anna gone full drunkzilla. Knowing him I'd expect Paul to be entirely too good at it, but Seth is the one that deserves to be hit by her kaiju radioactive breath attack.

Ah yeah, she is skinnier than Seth, but staying true to my experience of how when it comes to drinking, physics sometimes just doesn't work, Seth is way more of a lightweight than her. Maybe she's developed a tolerance

Maybe it's a British thing, and my perception of how much is a lot to drink is way off compared to other people, because I don't think 3 pints is an atrocious amount to drink in one go, even for someone smaller than the average football bloke.

From all the comments though, I think it's safe to assume that most of the people reading this are much more responsible drinkers than I am lol

It depends on the beer. There's a world of difference between fizzy water with too much carbs at less than 2% ABV, and stronger stuff like the ice-distilled kinds which go over 8%. So, maybe it isn't so bad and we really can't blame Anna for not wanting to waste the overpriced water.

The thing that probably looks like a warning sign about it to your readers in places with healthier drinking culture is that there's nothing to eat on the table to go with the beer. Mind you, those kinds of places also tend to serve stronger beer because otherwise you might not notice the alcohol.

Hmm, three pints in three minutes will definitely cause a bladder event either way whether that's yellow water with too many calories or proper fuel for vomit and football riots.

@Mel: concur with your assessment that three pints ain't nothing to write home about

probably shouldn't pound 'em, though. gets crowded in there fast

Haha, good point! But, counterpoint: they'd get warm (jk chugging is generally bad lol)

One person is going to spend some time in the loo, where she may ponder further on all this.
