Just encountered the world's politest stag party

Away on business trip in Germany. Man dressed as policewoman on flight obviously stood out. I and female colleague were out yesterday for lunch and the stag do of about 10 30sthg guys walked in. Cue nervous shuffling of the other diners, colleague and I planning to relocate. But nothing, they were far quieter than the family on the next table. Polite to the waiting staff, seemed to want to eat local food, didn't say a single word when a table of young women walked past. I felt like asking for their mother's numbers to congratulate them on being so well brought up. Apparently they were going to a classical music concert in the evening. Hopefully DD will end up with a man like one of these as her life partner.

Perhaps they were just pacing themselves for the night ahead. They say its the quiet ones you have to watch smile

That is hilarious and sweet all at once.

How strange that they dressed him up and took him to a classical concert smile

Well he wasn't wearing the full garb in the restaurant, some kind of German outfit instead.Fascinating to see the other diners reactions change from horror to relief

I had this sort of thing recently. Easyjet flight on a Friday am=stag/hen heaven.
I ended up beside two guys who were part of one of the stag parties.
The poor flight attendants never stopped serving drinks the entire flight,which was 2.5 hours.
The guys beside me were just chatting, then they realised that all their friends were well into the G&Ts.
They discussed that they better have 1 too. So they ordered one as the ladies went by with the trolley (again).
Then the friends were on their 4th each. Oh gosh, we better have another one. OK, but I don't want to get too drunk, and I'm not doing shots at all. Me too, I hate shots.
Patient waiting for 15 mins trying to catch FA eye...
Further 10 mins waiting, discussing if it would be rude to press the call button...(note-FAs were snowed under as everyone pressing call buttons for drinks)
1 guy decides he will go for a wee, and try to ask FA en route about more drinks....
Guy returns from loo but didn't like to bother obviously frazzled FA...
Further discussion about what to do...
I press call button, tell them that I can't sit and listen to this for a further 40 mins, we all have a laugh.
FA comes and brings 2 more G&Ts, guys are red as beets,grin.
Really wild stags!!

This comment came to mind because of a comment on another thread.

What would you want to thank their mothers? Maybe their father brought them up... Also why do you think men can't behave when they are out?

I went on a hen do on Brighton last year and went to the massive night club on the sea front-oceana I think it's called? The whole club was a right meat market until we discovered the cheese room in the basement which had a light up disco floor and played charty pop songs all night. Basically everyone in there was in their early to mid thirties and on stag and hen dos, we partnered up with a stag do group, danced with them all night and there was not a lechy grope or illicit snog all night, just lots of silly dancing. Was great fun!

DH's stag night ended abruptly in the first bar when some bloke started properly attacking his gf. DH and best man stepped in and promptly arrested him, then hoiked him outside while some of the other stags (also coppers) called it in. DH still says the ten minute wait for backup, trying to restrain a very angry drunk in a busy high street while wearing fishnets and armed only with fluffy handcuffs and a blowup truncheon was among the least pleasant experiences of his life to date grin.

But what a story for the grandchildren! On a par with sharing a room with a drunk pre-op MTF transsexual after a conference in Wolverhampton.
