All the old favourites.

night
When the night draws to a close there is always a deliberation. Walk or play it safe and get a taxi?

The walk home does hold some potentially classic encounters. We have compiled a list of late night personalities – Remind you of anyone?

1 – The “had one too many”

The drunk one who is on a mission to make it home but walks like an extra from the walking dead.

 

2 – The late night muncher

The hungry one who is most likely loitering around the takeaway or leaning against a lamp-post dining on a kebab or cheesy chips.

 

3 – The samaritan 

The angel like individual helping those in a more sorry state than themselves, the true heroes of the night.

 

4 – The road walker

The one whom strolls leisurely in the middle of the road for no real purpose except for the fact they can.

 

5 – The stealer

The individual who finds it humorous to steal traffic cones, small potted plants or the odd diversion sign.

 

6 – The fighter

The one who for some reason has got to assert themselves as a dominant force…

 

7 – The late night worker

Anything from the roadside cleaners, policemen or if you are late enough the milkman.

 

8 – The sleeper

The individual who has surpassed the ‘one too many’ stage and is now passed out on a nearby bench.

 

9 – The chatty loner

The individual who has somehow lost their crew but annoyingly initiates conversation with anybody in their path.

 

10- The singers

The individual or group who decide to sing anything from chart hits to their favourite hometown football songs.
