We started to eat our steak and fries before everybody else had been served. We knew that it was impolite, but as Tony said, as he stuffed what seemed like half of his steak into his mouth, he was fucking starving, and the beer had started to go to his head.
Tony had also emptied half of the bottle of red wine into our beer glasses, telling Justin that he thought the Bordeaux had been a good choice. Justin frothed at the mouth when he saw a seventy dollar bottle of wine disappear down our throats, saying that he had never come across such vulgar people in his entire life.
It was four o'clock in the afternoon and we were spiralling out of control. Tony was starting to get affectionate with Sharon, who he announced had something that he wanted to try, but he wasn't exactly sure what it was. She was confused, but took whatever he said as a compliment, even though he was slurring his words, and shouting loudly at the top of his voice that he wanted more beer.
