Some background information:
- Pissed is a short story of 2400 words. This story may also be found in the collection Flights of Madness.
- Pissed was inspired by sitting across the aisle of a heavily drunk young man on a flight from Amsterdam to Newcastle. And yes, the real life Mr Fully Loaded did speak in a slurred Geordie accent and he did order and was served another beer on the flight. And since it was a KLM flight, the beer really was Heineken.
- The real life Mr. Fully Loaded was almost as annoying as his fictional counterpart. Though he did not harass me and unlike the narrator in the story, I did not stab him with a ballpoint pen.
- The title is a play on the double meaning of “pissed” as “drunk” in colloquial British usage as well as “pissed off”.
- The unnamed narrator of Pissed is a lesbian woman. This makes Pissed one of two stories with lesbian protagonists I have written. The other is Outlaw Love, by the way.
- The cover photo was taken by a German photographer only known as fcl1971 and shows the waiting area at what is likely Frankfurt/Main International Airport.
