Alright lads, it's one of my mates' birthdays tomorrow. With it being the height of summer and him being a bit of an attention seeking sperg, it usually means we have a full day of events, mostly involving drinking.
The only problem is this year, he has scheduled (and I really mean that, dozens of messages from him with precise times and places) pretty much the same. And this is what gets me.
I'm in Hull like 50% of .gs, and I know cases here are lower than the UK average, but in some ways "going to a new-to-us slightly rough pub, before going to a slightly rough snooker club that stayed open when it shouldn't have, then probably going to some random rough pub down Holderness Road for the FA Cup Final, then going to a restaurant" just feels like the brainwork of someone who doesn't really care for the current moment.
I don't want to feel like an irresponsible wanker, and I don't want to get Covid. I'm fat myself, I have elderly relatives I'm only a degree of contact from, my coworker I'm in close contact with has elderly parents. It's unlikely but I just wish I wasn't being made to feel like this for the sake of his ego. I'll look a right cunt if I back out now.
