Of course some of us have drunk too much in our distant – or indeed recent – past. The difference with the RICS young surveyors’ party (18 May, page 11) is that it does not necessarily involve what would in any other scenario be called mindless vandalism.

If those involved think it was so hilarious, why don’t they dip into their professional pockets and cough up the £3.25 or so each to cover the cost of the damage.
