 Britons on Average Spends 39,480 on Drinks for Friends!
British drinkers splash out an average of 39,480 pounds buying rounds for their friends over a lifetime, according to a new survey.

The study involving 4000 Britons adults revealed that they spend around 840 pounds a year on drinks for their friends, partners and work colleagues.

It also showed that an average Briton goes out socialising to bars, pubs and restaurants three times a month, despite the ongoing credit crisis.

About a quarter of men go out twice a week, and buy rounds in groups of five - which equates to 200 pounds a month.

They are likely to spend over 13 pounds on one round alone, and on average will buy 1.8 rounds in an evening out,

"Buying rounds is a way of life in Britain and these results show us to be a very generous nation," the Telegraph quoted a spokesman for OnePoll, which conducted the survey as saying.

"The cost of buying a round soon adds up and over their lifetime it amounts to a sizeable piece of their disposable income," he added.
