Featured Stories of the Week

Formal Night.

Sitting at my backdrop, I ponder. To my left, the free drinks are coming out in abundance and before the bar stewards step 6 feet into the atrium passengers engulf them like a hoard of locusts. Sore, from the cheap booze last night, I rest my head on my chin and wait for the night to end.

The Bold Postman

It was a sunny day as I walked along in central Glasgow doing some light shopping. I passed a postman talking to what I assume must be his friend. He says to his friend on this pleasant summery afternoon, and I quote, "So I just went for a big fucking shite".

Nightmare in the Middle of Nowhere

It was December of 1974 and I had just got married to Juvencio in Porto Alegre. For our honeymoon, we decided to drive 750km south down to Punta del Este to spend some time on the beach in Uruguay.

We made our way down south spending most of the time talking, listening to music, singing and joking around.

Why is it called bytestories?

This is a place for "byte-sized" stories and there is a 1500 character (about 250 words) limit for two main reasons. Firstly, we want you to know that "War and Peace" isn't required to leave your mark. Secondly, it takes about 2 minutes to read each story meaning you can head here whenever you want a quick (and entertaining) read.
