This is based on an actual incident that took place at work a couple of days ago.
Abdul (not his real name) has resigned and decides to have his leaving do at a local Indian restaurant.
As Abdul has been a popular member of the team (and has offered to pay for the whole thing!), you turn up with your colleagues on the appointed evening and sit at the table perusing the menu. The waiter appears to take the drinks order. Most have been looking forward to having a Cobra beer with their curry. All of a sudden, Abdul pipes up: “No, sorry. No alcohol!”
Ever-respectful of Abdul’s religious beliefs, someone proposes separate bills – one for the food and one for the drinks – so that Abdul would not have to pay for the consumption of alcohol. But Abdul is having none of it. “Sorry,” he says. “There’ll be no alcohol at the table!”
So, do you go along with this or do you walk out?
David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.
Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
