Beware of your night-out spending

Sure, it's been a while since any of us have been on a night out that has stretched further than our own balconies, but old habits die hard. We're gonna be out again soon and just incase you've forgotten the grave financial risks that come with a piss-up, here are some of the traps you’ve walked into after a frozen margarita, or six.

"Bought my friend a drink, and when I got back from the bar they'd French Exited" - Atlanta



"I woke up with a $200 bar tab, missing a shoe, and an email from Amazon letting me know my order of a “Nicolas Cage Pillowcase” was on it’s way. I sadly no longer have the pillowcase." - Ashley

$100 on drink. I also had a receipt for $50 worth of Cheetos - Also Ashley

I got refused entry to a club. Decided I’d teach the bouncers a lesson. I ordered an Uber limo to take me home. 42 miles and £139 later. That showed them! - Ian

I bought www.thenetflix.com - Sadie

woke up to see I’d spent $350 at the bar and when I asked my friend she said “you know how you get loving drunk? You bought everyone in the club a vodka raspberry” - Lucette

Uber back from an afters. 60 miles from home :). - Hannah

I got a guitar and I didn't know I did it till it showed up at the front door a week later and I had NO idea what was in this massive box - Hailey

My friend and I went from work to go for a few drinks. The night escalated, ended up absolutely cut and spent £180 on a Premier Inn so that we could drop our bags and go back out. Didn’t even get the breakfast the next morning ffs - Ella

That's enough for one sitting. Don't want to stop you going out entirely.

Now, if bathing in others mistakes makes you feel better about yourself, you might enjoy this.

And if you want to confess your worst night out spend, rid yourself of the guilt before you return and probably to it again, send it over. We always got you.
