    At the grocery store yesterday I purchased a 12 pack of Amstel Light.
    To make a long story short, I drank 10 of them last night.

    This morning, I get a phone call from my girlfriend asking: "How many beers did you drink last night?" I said "just a few." "Then how come when I checked the box this morning, I only saw 2 beers left?"

    She had to go so the converstion ended there.

    Now I have to deal with the wrath when I get home from work. Any suggestions?

    10 beers? In one night?

    I'd be so hungover. Ugh. Then again, I don't drink.

    Just ask her what the problem is. She's bound to give you an earful, but honest and direct tend to work the best.

    I'm sorry but that's just looking for a fight... she obviously knew how many you had drunk. There may be more to her annoyance than meets the eye.

    What was she doing looking for a beer at that time of day?

    Call her, and ask her how many loops her shoe strings make going through her shoes.

    Point being...there should be nothing for her to have a wrath about.

    Was the beer for her? Was it her money? Did you do anything unfaithful? Did you neglect work/school?

    I'm assuming the answer to all of those is "No," so there should really be nothing to fight about.

    She knew how many had been consumed.

    She may suspect that someone helped drink nearly a dozen beers. I dunno.

    I'd take issue with someone (hell, ANYONE) drinking 10 beers in one night, though. Maybe I'm weird.

    tell her you were held at gunpoint by a member of al qaeda, and you were miraculously saved at the zero hour by a group of american soldiers of fortune... she will be so happy that you are alive, she will forget all about the beers... actually she will probably let you drink 10 more

    I agree.

    My theory is that she was pissed 'cause she wanted to sit down and have a few beers w/her other bf but she couldn't 'cause you drank'em all.

    ;)

    It's an angry woman you're dealing with here... there's nothing you can say or do except prepare yourself for a lot of groveling and apologising.

    I can't lie to you about your chances, but... you have my sympathies. ;)

    Ahhh, you're kind of SOL because you should have drunk all 12 of them last night, thereby leaving no evidence. :)

    Apologize? Pfft.

    PS. Seriously, good luck... I feel for you.

    Who gives a crap? It's beer, unless you did something stupid, it shouldn't matter.

    Dump her. You don't need someone that rides your ass for drinking some beer.

    Well, the evidence is pretty damning... :D

    I've just reread the opening post – am I right in thinking that Amstel Light is one of those low calorie diet beers? If so, I'm sorry billyergs but you deserve everything you get. :p

    It's stuff like this that makes me glad that I am (chronically) single. If it were me in the situation, the conversation would have probably gone like this:

    Her: How many beers did you drink last night?
    Me: None of your business
    Her: You drank 10
    Me: You can count
    Her: Quit being an a$$hole
    Me: Quit being a overbearing mother
    Her: I'm not
    Me: Then why do you care how much I had to drink?
    Her: It was just a question
    Me: Suuuuuuuuuuuure it was. Of all the things you could call me up and ask me about, it was about how much I had to drink
    Her: I just don't want you to get drunk and mess around with another girl
    Me: So because one guy cheats on you, ALL guys are pigs
    Her: That's not what I said. I just want you to be careful, that's all.
    Me: Don't tell me my business Devil Woman.
    *I hang up*

    So, anybody have any ideas on why I am single? I can't figure it out.

    Thanks for the support guys.

    I'm gonna try the Al Queda one out on her. Humor usually calms her down.


    As for Amstel Light, I think it's the only light beer that actually has some flavor.

    I think there is wisdom in this post :). The beer drinking may not be the real reason why she's making a fuss, it can just be an excuse to bring other things up.

    Like any couple therapist would tell you. Don't forget to communicate ;).

    If the beer really is the reason, I think she's upset for little reason, unless of course you had made some kind of promise to not drink beer that night or you have a history of alcoholism or irresponsible drinking.

    Lying about something so trivial as "how many beers did you drink last night" was pretty dumb. My advice: Apologize for doing it. Include the phrase "I really don't know why I said 'a few' when the answer was really 10", but make sure she understands you did this by yourself and without any assistance from anyone else. She will be more forgiving if you don't try to compound the stupid little lie with a planned, bigger lie.

    Remember, it's always the cover-up that gets you into the most trouble. Be honest and forthcoming.
