A man from the Sandfields, in Swansea not that one in Port Talbot, reckons he’ll just be having the one drink after work tonight.

Call centre worker Pete Bowen has been talking about ‘payday beers’ with his colleagues all week, but is trying to play it down and convince everyone he has ‘plans’ tomorrow.

Bowen said: “Just having the one tonight, no work tomorrow and I fancy doing something a bit active. Maybe cycle down to Mumbles or a walk up Kilvey Hill.

“I’m meeting my new bird’s parents too, so need a clear head because the Dad used to be a bouncer in Quids Inn and he’s probably really hard.

“If the banter’s good I may have a pint and a bottle, tops.

“There’s a slim chance I may grab a bit of food after my one and a bit drinks, which will technically soak those earlier drinks up, which gives me the green light for one more.

Bowen continued: “If one of the boys needs some help I don’t mind chipping in for a gram of something Colombian. I don’t like to leave a friend in need. Of course if I own half of it I’ll need to make sure I get my share.

“It’s Saturday tomorrow, so worse case scenario I have a little lie in, depending on whether I can sleep or not.

“If you think about it, if I stay out for 12 hours and have a beer an hour, then really one beer leaves my system then I just have another. So technically I’ll have just one beer in my system, right?”
