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".

My Girlfriend Getting a Tattoo in Cambodia

My girlfriend found a tattooist in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We went and visited him and he was a cool French dude. The tattoo shop was set up in a bar, sounds dodgy but we knew he was good (clean needles, etc). So my missus started her tattoo while I played pool about 5 metres away.

Helium balloon mishap

I can remember being at a birthday party and having my first helium balloon experience. I was having a whale of a time, sucking out the gas and making everyone laugh with my cool sounding "jockey" voice.

If only I'd known when to stop....

It seemed as though we were running out of balloons

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.
