People who think that drinking wine is "non-alcoholic" really get on my nerves! An example of this was my boss a few years ago actually admitting she "liked a drink" when she got home at night. She was posh and used to be a teacher so was an educated kinda person....until it came to drink.
One thing was in her favour, however. She never used to LIE about the amount of wine she drank. She once said to me, "People who say to you, 'last night I had 2 glasses of wine with my meal' ACTUALLY mean, 'I had 2 bottles of red with my take-away Chinese and I'm feeling a bit hungover today'"
wine drinkers are actually drinking LOADS of alcohol but are too dumb to admit it!
She is sooo right! I have the proof that wine-drinkers are actually drinking LOADS of alcohol but are too dumb to admit it! Those middle-class morons who probably drink 2 bottles of the "finest" red from Tesco who then take their kids to school the following morning in their lovely 4x4's are drinking MILES more alcoholic content than us poor, working-class mortals that like a can of lager now and again. It made me smile when "experts" appeared on Sky News recently saying that some wine drinkers are consuming far more alcohol than they realise and their livers may suffer in the long run. You don't say! I've known this for a long time and don't get paid for "doing research" on it!
I really think those snobby wine drinkers should (firstly) own up to drinking not 2 glasses of wine but 2 bottles a night...because, let's face it, how can a bottle of wine stay fresh if you only have 2 glasses at a time? THEY ARE LYING! And, secondly, READ THE LABEL SO YOU KNOW WHAT THE ALCOHOLIC CONTENT IS. Even better, buy a few cans of cheap lager, you know it makes sense! Oh, but you won't though, it's far too common to drink anything less than Tesco's "finest" red wine isn't it? Or is it?!
