Bar Worker Confused To Be Still Sober After Downing Eight Vodka Shots

A bar worker who couldn't understand why she wasn't getting drunk during a boozy night in, eventually realised that she was only drinking a fraction of the amount she thought she was.

Kelly Windebank, from Portsmouth, Hampshire, was enjoying a few drinks with her pal Marie Guinelly earlier this month when she decided to use a Calpol syringe to measure out her vodka.

But three hours into the session and over two litres of coke sunk, the 36-year-old didn't feel tipsy at all.

On closer inspection of the syringe, Kelly realised that she had been pouring out 5ml measures rather than the 50ml she'd thought. Oh dear.

"I was doing 2.5ml shots. The syringe that they use for Calpol is 5ml and I thought it was 50ml so I'd just do half," said Kelly.

"We worked it out. I had 20ml, so not even a shot, in three and a half hours and I pretty much drank a two-litre bottle of diet coke.

"We were just in absolute hysterics. I just went in and was, like, 'You won't believe what I've just done'. We were laughing about it for days after."

She added: "I just wasn't really thinking. The funny thing is, I do actually work in a bar as well, so that's the ironic part of it."

Kelly had been using the syringe because she was trying to cut down on her calories and thought it would be a great way of keeping track of her intake.

But it didn't go quite as well as she had hoped.

She went on: "I'm doing a bit of calorie counting at the minute so have been measuring out my vodka into a jug but I didn't have a measure because I'm in the middle of moving.

"I thought, 'You know what, I'll just use that Calpol syringe, that's 25ml' and I thought it said 25ml.

"I was about three-and-a-half hours into drinking and I thought, 'I feel alright', which was a bit weird.

"I was wondering why I was still sober and thought Marie was trying to top up my jug.

"I said, 'Do you keep topping up my vodka because hardly any is going?' and she said, 'No, why would I do that?' because I thought she was trying to sabotage my diet.

"I even put the glass on the measuring scales and thought, 'I'll have a double', so I put 5ml in and when I put it on the scale, I thought, 'Oh no, what an idiot I was actually drinking 2.5ml of vodka'.

"I'm just a donut, basically. We were just laughing so much. But then I did play catchup so it was alright."
