This is a question Abusing freebies

A friend of mine recently attended a 'Champaign Lunch', where he was compelled drink as much fizzy stuff as he could between the first and last courses. In an ideal world we'd ask restaurant staff to tell us stories about fatties stuffing themselves at All You Can Eat places, but we recognise that our members don't all work in the catering trade, so for the rest of you - tell us something about abusing freebies. BTW: Bee puns = you fail.

Surgical spirits
This relates to a previous QOTW, in which I admitted to having taught while drunk and while getting drunk.

The scene is a medical school in the midlands that may possibly be attached to a large university in a large city the name of which begins with "B". Possibly.

I was a PG tutor* at the time; other tutors were medics who were volunteering their time. Just before the last session before Christmas, the department put on a buffet lunch as a thank you; it featured wine.

Notwithstanding the free food, we were shortstaffed that day: when the time came to teach, I was asked to take two tutorial groups at the same time, in different rooms. They could trust me - I was (and am) a good teacher, and very trustworthy - or so they thought.

Thing was, they didn't clear away the buffet: we might have wanted to graze again at the end of the session. Naturally, I devised a teaching method that involved 5 minutes in room 1, 5 in room 2, then a quick dash to the buffet to top up my glass, then back to room 1, and so on.

It was a large glass.

My teaching quickly shtopped being up to itsh ussshual shtandardsh.

*I taught people how to make tea, arf arf... Sorry.
