We've all been there before. You're hitting the town on a night out for your birthday and wouldn't mind some free beverages to celebrate the occasion, courtesy of the generosity of whoever wants to pay.
Luckily for birthday boy, Nick Matthewman -- his mate Rory had cracked a genius plan involving The Bankers Draft pub in Sheffield, England, and the venue's pre-order mobile app on Wednesday night, to fill the evening with some complementary liquor.
This is Nick, and it's his birthday. We're at the Bankers Draft spoons in Sheffield, table 67, be generous and send him a Bev on the app xxx pic.twitter.com/JxMnjB8a46— Rory (@RoryMeep) September 20, 2017
But here's the thing -- you should never trust the Internet to have your party's best interests at heart. Rory certainly didn't and it was Nick that ended up paying the price.
In other words, things didn't quite go as Rory had planned them. In fact, they went very, very far in the opposite direction.
Firstly, the non-alcoholic beers came.

But then, before Nick's birthday celebrations had even really started, the online world who had tuned into Rory's requests for some free drinks, began to shower the pair in glasses of milk.
No, we're not lying.

And while there were some nice people who thought Nick might actually need something a little stronger to drink than milk for his birthday, things only got weirder from there.
Think, green peas.

To the delight (or possibly the displeasure) of the staff at The Bankers Draft, the orders kept coming for the young duo -- even after they had left the venue.
Unluckily for Nick, the orders did start to get more alcoholic following his exit from the pub but by the look of Rory's Twitter updates, he was too busy having a bit of a boogie on his birthday to really care.
Right we're attempting to leave the pub now, please do not send us anymore milk— Rory (@RoryMeep) September 20, 2017
Oh dear I got this too tweet too late - if you've left the pub then table 67 is getting a random gift of a pint, shot and some nachos!!! 🙈🙊— Honeysuckle Healing (@honeysuckleBS3) September 20, 2017

Nick update, like the legend he is he's now DJing our pres pic.twitter.com/AgwQyznUka— Rory (@RoryMeep) September 20, 2017
In the end, if there's one thing Nick and Rory should really learn from the night of birthday escapades -- it's that the Internet is always willing to have a laugh at your expense.
But in the name of Table 67, it seems Nick might not mind that idea too much at all.
