This is a question Weddings Part II

Attending a wedding is like being handed a licence to act like a twat. Oh how I laughed when I sobered up and realised I'd nicked most of the plates and cutlery from the posh hotel lunch and those vague memories of stealthily exiting like a cat-burglar had in fact involved falling out of the hotel, knives and forks clattering onto the steps.

Tell us more of your wedding stories.

Living in Redditch for a brief period
these were inevitable.

Wedding number 1. I was an onlooker as the "reception" was basically taking place in my local. Teenage groom, bride in her forties, I swear her (school age) children had tattoos, words were obviously exchanged at some point between the two families, it all kicked off. A guy I vaguely knew looked down (we were on the balcony) at the chaos. "Yossers" he said, quite rightly, he was later convicted of murdering his wife with a sawn-off.

wedding number 2. I worked with both M (female) and her bloke D, M was a bright young lady with great norks, D worked in the packing department, a complete piss-head who'd always miss at least one day a month due to drinking, in the mornings you could smell the cider on his breath. Everyone knew M could do better for herself, but she'd been going out with D since the year dot and probably thought she could improve him. Wrong.

At the wedding, D was obviously pissed, towards the end of the evening he came up to me. "You've always fancied M, haven't you?" he slurred. I did my best to make a non-committal comment, in case I was going to get a beating, yes I often wondered what those norks looked like, but had never taken it further.

"Well, I tell you what" D continued, "why don't you take her home and fuck her tonight, I've got my eye on the bridesmaid."

Tempting though this was, I declined. The marriage lasted six months, several years later D was hit by a car and killed as he staggered home from the pub.

I don't miss Redditch.

The groom or the guy you vaguely knew?

The guy I vaguely knew
He was an ice-cream van man. For Redditch, he was fairly articulate and philosophical. Apparently she had been letting another man put the special sauce into her cornet. Not a valid reason, of course, and given this was 20 years ago, he's probably out by now.

This is what the pub in question looks like now. Thank God they've demolished it: www.redditchstandard.co.uk/2012/08/03/news-Work-begins-on-Church-Hill-Centre-47079.html
