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

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

With summer finally upon us, plenty of us will be using the hot weather as an excuse to get our shorts on and head out to the beer garden for a few pints.

This was exactly 19-year-old Jack Potter's plan on Tuesday night, following a workout at the gym. His mates had recently got back home to Brentwood, Essex from university, so he messaged them telling them to get down to their local for a catch-up.

Sadly, his calls for a weekday sesh went unanswered in their group chat.

Explaining his predicament to LADbible, 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."

Already at the pub and faced with the prospect of a man-date between him and the one mate who had turned up, he 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 Fosters, 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 began tipping 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 fuck'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 pissed 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?"

I guess the moral of the story is: when in doubt, get down to the pub.
