I really don't understand drunk threads....

When I've been out drinking and I get home I either go straight to bed (without taking my make-up off eww) or chuck a pint of water and then go to bed.

I have no effort to do anything, but crash out in bed.

I have to gather the will power to brush my teeth nevermind switching on my laptop and starting a thread. As it really is the furthest thing from my mind.

Also I do realise that people use their phones to start threads. But when I'm out having fun with friends or my partner drinking, thats generally exactly what I'm doing. I don't think - hang on a second and whip my phone out and start a thread on mumsnet.

And I just don't find posts such as -

weifjwp uwrh fvh i ma soooooo durnk!!! wefpwehf

Funny.

Aibu?

What pinot said.

The OP means threads like SP's from last night.

I missed the part where I implied every person who goes out and gets drunk ends up with their knickers around their ankles. That was just an example of how people can make pathetic fools of themselves when they go out and get drunk. Making a fool of yourself online is a step up from making a fool of yourself in RL.

Sorry I am also talking about threads that people start when drunk with incoherent wording, not the actual drunk thread.

Do you not drink fakebook? genuine q

Making a fool of yourself online means nothing, at least at MN.

Name change and no one knows you're a fool.

If you are a fool for posting drunk. Which I don't think you are.

What last night? No I didn't. When I was a teen I got drunk once which was enough to put me off for life. It's not my thing really.

Makes sense, I love alcohol, I have a great time drinking, and although I may make a tit of myself on occasion, i don't see that as a bad thing grin

It's not your thing...yet you know all about drunk people with their knickers round their ankles outside nightclubs?

It's not for you - that's fine.

No need to be so rude about people that do though.

Fakebook Tue 01-Jan-13 11:45:41

Fine. I'll stop being rude.

Oh, ok then.

Happy fucking new year.

I've only posted once when totally wasted. A big rambly mess with lots of crying. Most of the spelling was surprisingly accurate. Can't say the context was mind.

true fake book

usual I don't think people are meaning the standard Friday night thread.
At first I thought that's what the OP meant. I don't mind that thread. At all.

I don't find them particularly funny either, but other people do <shrug> horses for courses etc.

And it's easy to tell from the title so I just don't read it.

TSC yes true too

Lol led <you hussy you>

Yeah I knew you were on about that those types tsc I think some of us had our wires crossed as to which drunk thread it was.

I still feel bloody drunk from last night.

Feelingood Tue 01-Jan-13 12:22:09

I don't think it contribute to drinking culture though I think it is a symptom not a cause.
