    wd me, imo

    and it was only a very light week
    I think it's fairly clear that middle aged people in this country drink far more than anyone realises.

    Meanwhile, we've got a generation of young adults who think caffeine is a hard drug. Pussies.

    Mental.
    I try to stick to that. And the gin and tonic/scotch and soda at the beginning of the evening.

    Not counting weekends, of course. Or when I have to drink for work.

    Quite. A dull generation who think plastering themselves in silly pictures and sticking bits of metal in their faces makes them interesting.

    Oh weekends are another matter entirely, naturally.

    I'm pretty sure that scotch and soda doesn't count as an alcoholic drink.

    Something has to replace the mdma, b.

    A few of us old mates met up in Amsterdam about 5-6 years ago.
    about twenty 40+ year olds having it, as it were, large.
    The only difference from my youth was that we stayed in nicer hotels.

    What an absolute, fúcking shambles we must have looked

    A number of people in their 20s report to me. They're nice enough, but fvck me, they're credulous, ignorant, dull and censorious. Constantly on the lookout for something that might offend and seem to think that if they're more than five minutes away from a glass of water, they'll desiccate. Take last week for example. We'd just done a big awards thing that had gone well and so we all pile into the nearest fancy bar to celebrate a job well done. So I'm buying (well, the company is, but via my expenses) and ask them all what they want. I kid you not, half of the little spastics didn't even want to order an alcoholic drink. Obviously, I bullied most of them into doing so, but even then they nursed them for about an hour and then gradually trickled away.

    The last three left standing were the most senior members of staff - all of us in our 40s. Meanwhile the youngsters were all safely tucked up in bed getting their eight hours. Seriously, what a fvcking tedious generation.

    One of them actually left with the excuse that they had to go to the gym. I had no words.

    They all live with their mums, don't they? That's got to slow you down a bit. You can't roll in every night battered, puking and pissing in the wardrobe, in your mum's house.
