I've been talking to a friend tonight who's been involved with someone for a couple of years. He spends a lot of time away from home, and my friend likes the odd drink when she's sitting around waiting for his return. By the odd drink,I mean that she has a litre bottle of vodka that's been sitting in her cupboard for over 12 months and is still nearly half full, so it's hardly full-blown alky bottle-at-a-sitting stuff. Thing is, he was home a few weeks back (he doesn't drink at all and doesn't think she should) and when she went to pour a drink tonight, the half remaining bottle had been emptied and re-filled with water. She also had a couple of bottles of wine that she keeps in for friends, and that has been removed as well. So, given that he's a serving soldier, come on guys - is this normal squaddie thinking? Are you lot turning alcohol free, or is he a controlling cnut who brings shame on the services? If it's normal, where can a girl go to find a real man when you lot turn all righteous on us???? This is not me looking for squaddie dates but always thought you lot were a bit easier going than this! Would you pour good drink away?
