This is a question Nights Out Gone Wrong

In celebration of the woman who went out for a quiet drink with friends after work, and ended up half naked, kicking a copper in the nads and threatening to smear her own shit over hospital staff, how have your best-laid plans ended in woe?

o dear
My tolerance to alcohol is pretty low to start with. I'd been on tour with my band and (being vegetarian) hadn't eaten anything proper for about 3 days. All was going well-ish until someone asked if I wanted to swap my 2 litre bottle of coke for a bottle of vodka? Yes. I did.
Sadly I now had no mixer. But no worries. I drank the vodka straight. I then played a gig (not too badly but rather fast but video evidence proves that nothing I said between songs made any sense whatsoever...). I came off stage to collapse at the bottom of the steps in a pile of my own (pretty much pure vodka) sick.
I woke up a day later in bed having apparently been carried out by bouncers who thought I'd taken some naughty drugs, been taken away by an ambulance (apparently John Peel got in the back of the ambulance at one point to check I was okay - my only meeting with the man and I missed it...) - the ambulance worked out I was just stupidly drunk and sent me home. OUCH!
The only other time I had an ambulance called out on me was on the top of a hill in Brighton. I was fighting drunk and refused to get in the ambulance and lay on the floor. My boyfriend at the time asked the ambulance drivers what he should do. They told him 'she's too drunk and she's too fat - we'd dump her if we were you mate'. I tried to roll the 2 miles home at this point (well we were on the top of a hill - I figured I could pick up momentum and roll all the way home...)
I guess that's enough shame for one post.

How did it work out with the bank and the missing money in the end?

took it to the ombudsman (twice!) and still no joy - I didn't have enough proof - and the Abbey National/Santander lot took so long to respond to me that it was too late for CCTV etc anyway...so had to let it go...nothing else I could do - thanks for asking...I hate AN/Santander...

It seems like you can't really trust any institution these days. I'd like to think that I'd never get myself into a similar situation but I'm probably far too trusting and tend to lose receipts as I don't think I'll ever need them them.

yeah - it turned my house into the 'before' in the 'how clean is your house' programs cos it's now covered in receipts and invoices and bills for everything peanut i've ever bought in my whole life (well - not my whole life - since when the abbey national pinched my money...)
thanks for asking tho....
