Not a massive drinker these days (a night out every few months) but ended up going out after a work do a couple of weeks ago.  Anyways, drank way too much to the point I woke up the next day with serious fear and couldnít recount parts of the night (I do mind getting home though).  Anyways, spoke to some colleagues on the Monday who said that whilst I was steaming I wasnít giving any bad manners and said there was nothing to worry about.  Since found out that a colleague (who I would be pally enough with) took a couple of videos of me in a drunken state (bit of dancing and slabbering but again nothing offensive) and showed them to a few colleagues (including myself).  I jokingly asked him to delete them but he thinks they are harmless and laughed it off.  Itís still not sitting well with me so should I just text/speak to him direct and say Iím serious about it or just take my medicine and itíll be forgotten about?  Donít want to create an awkward situation but people videoing stuff on nights out really sickens my hole.

I'd ask them to delete them in a more serious way. Tell them you're annoyed. Would it affect your job?

Ignore it, youíve asked him and as for being pally with him, just donít bother with him, heíll get the point and if you persist he may end up sharing it with others.

Weíve a policy for stag weekends, phones stay in the hotel  ;D

Thinking this may be the way to go.  Should be said heís about 7/8 years younger than me and the female colleague is younger again (btw she did nothing wrong but she wouldnít be bothered by being in the videos as she was fairly sober and of that TikTok era that love the attention).  I guess you see people (esp work colleagues) in different light after these things.


I'd just ignore it and as the other lads say, give that fella a cold enough shoulder moving forward.

When I had an office job I always cleared off after a few pints or dodge on to a bar with 2-3 lads that you could trust and wouldn't be taking vids/slabbering on a Monday. Nothing worse than vids or back in the day being tagged on Facebook!

What a gobshite for videoing someone with a few drinks in them. Iíd think less of that person than you to be honest. People that have the phones out videoing on nights out and stag doís are assholes plain and simple.

People have their phones out for everything.

I remember reading about a serious RTA on the M50 and people passing the accident were slowing down and videoing the carnage.

It was that bad that the Guards had to issue an appeal on the media for people not to be videing it.

Absolutely sickening stuff.

Aye I think some woman had been decapitated and all these sick cnuts were sharing videos of it. I like the sound of MRs rule to keep the phones under lock and key.

Slightly off topic but I was in the gym this morning and a lad came in mid 20's, I would describe him as a love island wannabee.
He was going flat to the mat on the treadmill and he took the phone out either to take a selfie or a video of himself, next thing I new he went flying off the treadmill and nearly out through the back window of the gym.

Everyone ran to see was he ok, me and and man in his 70s on were side by side on two bikes, we sat are ground and laughed for 15 mins.
