Fully capable sook adult refuses to play bowling without bumpers

Local bowling non-enthusiast Alan, 36, went out with some mates last week and was ridiculed after he requested the bumpers to be left up when it was his turn. Reports say that the bowling centre employee only put them up after a few minutes of convincing, which included points such as 'it helps me get a higher score' and 'I can beat everyone else this way'. Alan went on to score 56 in his first game, and still somehow managed to find the gutter in the short gap at the end a handful of times.
