    Has anyone else found themselves in the torturous position of being addicted to checking their phone and email inbox hoping to see a message from a certain someone who only seems to communicate with you in this medium? It sucks.

    Then, after a certain amount of beer, suddenly feeling courageous and witty I either leave a drunken slur on an answering machine (think of that excrutiating moment in Swingers when you're shouting at the screen "please for the love of God, just hang up!") or send a text - to which I usually wait patiently for a reply from only to receive one the following morning saying "Hungover are we?!"

    I hate to tell them they were right as I check my sent items in shame and try and keep some dignity about me.

    Thing is, I'm not sure what it is about messaging in particular, but perhaps it's a confidence over distance thing, or maybe it's always the booze, who knows.

    Anyone else shamed themselves in this manner, or are you all the ones on the receiving end?!

    I thought some years ago of a great invention: a phone with built-in breathaliser. Not only could it tell you when you were over the limit, but it could also lock at a preset level of pissedness, maybe limited to certain numbers, so the embarrassment could be avoided for ever.

    Alcohol + Mobile Phones = bad mix.

    I bet Billy made a royal textual tit of himself last night and is secretly hoping we can appease his overwhelming sense of shame and loneliness now that the repercussions of his actions have been somewhat stronger than he anticipated, and not in a good way... ;)

    Ah, been there.

    That was also me last night. Lovely girl - she totally took things in a good spirited way and made me feel less of a tit when I sent an apology this morning :)

    Happens to most of us at one time or another.

    If she doesn't want you sober, she's not going to want you drunk either!

    Yeah, I do this a lot. I don't even take my phone with me when I go out drinking these days. Pretty pathetic, really..

    I have had something arrive everyday for 8 days now.


    LOL!

    I only call my close friends when drunk. That's just to shout abuse at them for not coming out. Never have that many drunken moments with phones.

    One night i was drunk and pinched a mate's phone and sent obscene messages to random ladies.

    Oh how we laughed.

    Until he started getting messages the next day asking "so what IS a 'purple headed spitting cobra' exactly?"

    Seconded. Mind you, however embarassed you feel after realising through the haze of a hangover that you sent a girl flirting texts the night before imagine the pain of realising you actually didn't send them to the girl you thought they were going to but instead in your drunken hammering away at your phone managed to send them to one of your mates instead.

    Gawd, it took me an age to live that one down...

    Na I have a life. Only joking, I leave drunken texts and emails and phone messages all over the place. I never get the guilt complex unlike some people I know. I just find it funny.

    Anyone ever wake up after a heavy night out, find an EG screen open on their PC with several last posts belonging to oneself, who can't remember even doing it?

    It does, according to a friend of mine who bought the complete 'Saved by the Bell' DVD boxset for 50 once off ebay in a drunken moment.

    That said, he's never shown any desire to get rid of it...

    There are actually some mobile providers, that have this kind of service. It's just not as advanced as your "invention". Before you go to your pub to get drunk, you have to activate it by sending a sms. After that you can't phone or sms certain pre-defined numbers till you unlock them again.
    It would have safed me from several embarrassing moments. Only problem with this: You have to know in advance that you are gonna act stupid and embarrassing.

    Hmm, maybe not. I shall have it activated all the time.
