Hungover woman pens grovelling A4 apology letter to pub after attempt to steal plate sparks staff chase

05/21/2021

A HUNGOVER pub-goer who sparked a bar staff chase after trying to nick a plate has penned a grovelling A4 letter to the boozer as an apology.

The "Very Sorry Plate Thief" admitted to stealing a thermometer after "copious amounts" of cocktails and wine and trying to make off with her burger, still on plate, when her taxi arrived.

She said she will be embarrassed "for the rest of my days" over her drunken antics at The Huxley, Edinburgh, earlier this month.

Too red-faced to show her face in the boozer, she typed up a letter instead and posted chocolates to sweeten the apology.

In the typed note, the embarrassed lass said: "I was at your establishment over the weekend having a beautiful time. I had been drinking throughout the day, to the point of many regrets.

"After copious amounts of wine and cocktails, I somehow became infatuated with one of your thermometers and in that process decided it would be a brilliant idea to take it home with me.

According to my friends, after a few more drinks in your outdoor seating area, I was very loud, disruptive and acting in a way that I am genuinely embarrassed about and probably will be for the rest of my days.

"The next part of the story, I have no recollection of. I am told that upon our Uber arriving to save your employees from us, I attempted to take my burger away with me while it was still on a plate.

I am told that upon our Uber arriving to save your employees from us, I attempted to take my burger away with me while it was still on a plate.

“As a result, I was running through the streets manically being chased by one of your very brave employees trying to retrieve said plate. Thankfully he got to me in time and recovered it safe and sound."

She added: “I wanted to write to formally apologise to you all and would like to come in and apologise in person but I am currently too ashamed over my drunken antics (and also exceptionally hungover which I deserve).

"I’m deeply sorry for the trouble I have caused for both your employees and the establishment in general, and I have definitely learnt a lot from this situation.

"Please accept my sincere apology for any upset or offence caused by my actions and know that this will never happen again.

"I have placed the stolen item (plus some Kitts and Magic Stars) in the package and hope for its safe return."

And bar staff have accepted her apology – welcoming the hungover and embarrassed customer back any time.

Sharing a snap of the letter, they replied on Facebook: "Dear 'The very sorry plate thief'.

"We get it. We are all excited to get back out to the pub, it’s been too long and we’ve missed you all too.

"You came, you saw and you conquered that burger. You rock and we absolutely accept your apology. We will see you soon."

It's not the first note to cause a stir online.
