There's a few golden rules - always apologise if you bump into someone. If someone bumps into you on purpose just walk away. If someone starts on you try and reason with them.
The weekend after I had my eyes done I was stood in front of a table in Yates, turned round to pick up my drink and accidentally knocked another lad's drink (which was nearly empty) over. Started carrying on so I pulled a fiver out of my pocket and told him to get himself another, and headed for a ****.

Other times there's been arguments in takeaways and ****, which can usually be resolved by a bit of banter, or ''we've all had a good night, let's not spoil it by getting nicked''.

If you have found yourself ending up in anymore than 5 street fights or bust ups on a nnight out over the past number of years, Ive got news for you, your the problem...

Id rather go home in 1 piece or without getting nicked or without my night being ruined.
