The man, who was interviewed by The New York Post without giving his name, detailed how the night unfolded. He got off work after a 12-hour shift at his office job, and met his friend at the bar, despite being bleary-eyed and wanting to go home. But his buddy, who was talking to a woman and needed a wingman, implored him to stay by buying him round after round of IPAs.
“I’m dead tired, I’ve had like three beers, [and] I wanted to leave,” the man recalled.
In the crux of his burnout, our hero went to the bathroom and sat down on the toilet. Under the weight of his sleepiness, his eyes shut for the duration of the evening and finally opened the next day.
“I wake up, walk into the bar, and it’s completely empty, and it’s daylight,” he said. His friend, apparently thought he'd left the night prior, as people normally do.
