Guy Gets His Mates To The Pub By 'Copy And Pasting' His Pint On Snapchat

With the beer gardens finally open for business once again, many of us will be flocking for a post-lockdown pint or two.

No doubt most people you know won't need any persuading, but if you're struggling to rally the troops, you may just have to get creative - like a Snapchat user called Jack Potter managed to do.

Following a workout at the gym, Jack hoped to get out to the pub to enjoy the sunny weather and messaged his mates.

But sadly his calls for a weekday sesh went unanswered in their group chat.

Explaining his predicament to LADbible back in 2017, a then-19-year-old Jack said: "The weather was beautiful, but they've all just started new jobs so they were bottling going out. I knew half of them wouldn't even reply, let alone turn up, but I wasn't having it."

His mates had returned to Brentwood, Essex, from university, so Jack was keen to seize the opportunity to see them.

Already at the pub with just one friend - hardly the big reunion he'd hoped for - Jack knew some extreme measures were called for.

He decided to message them saying he had bought them a pint. However, he knew they wouldn't believe him without photographic evidence. So, having already got himself a pint of Foster's, he took a Snapchat of it and, using the scissor tool, he copied and pasted four more pints alongside his.

He then sent them the following picture to his friends...

Lo and behold his friends started to turn up. Needless to say they weren't happy when they realised they'd been duped.

Jack said: "The first mate came in the beer garden and first thing he said was: 'Where the f***'s the pints, then?' So I told him to go buy them himself and stop being a cheapskate, and he stormed off to the bar."

One-by-one, the rest of them showed up, with a total of seven eventually arriving. Although they were disappointed not to get a free bev, they all saw the funny side in the end.

Jack said: "We all had a laugh about it - [it] didn't end up in a proper argument or anything as they can take a bit of banter."

The group stayed until the beer garden closed and everyone had a good laugh.

Describing how it felt to arrive and find out there were no free pints on offer, Jack's mate Lewis said: "When they broke the news, I was so shocked and confused. I was p***ed for a minute but eventually I saw the funny side."

He added: "The sun was out, we were in a beer garden, and we had nice cold Foster's. What more could you want?"
