Thirsty devil

I remember the IT trade journo who turned up at a media launch event a full 30 minutes after it had finished, didn’t acknowledge anyone as he walked into the room and made a beeline for all the dregs of wine in people’s glasses. Having rapidly drained about five in silence, he ambled over to where the (American) clients were standing, open-mouthed. His opening comment was “You think you’ve had a hard day? I started the day with an argument with my bitch of a girlfriend. I couldn’t be bothered after a while so I plunged my hand into her chest and pulled out her still-beating heart.” He was quickly ushered out, grabbing at spare glasses of wine as he left.
