@schoonercarrys’ Instagram Celebrates the Little Wins

Sometimes, we all get a little too caught up in the rat race that is life. Then, every once in a while, something comes along and reminds us to celebrate the little wins. That’s how we felt this morning when we stumbled across the Instagram account @schoonercarrys.

Every day, @schoonercarrys features a plethora of men and women doing the lord’s work and carrying an assortment of Margot Frothies, unassisted, from the bar to the table. In what can only be described as the everyman overcoming daily adversity, @schoonercarrys highlights the techniques and skill moves employed by these fine fellas. From the classic 4fa ‘scharry’  to the more advanced ‘Michelle’ 5fa or the illusive 8fa – the higher the risk, the higher the reward.

If you fancy yourself a scharry professional, then join the throng and send your submission to @schoonercarrys on Instagram. Be warned, if you have too much spillage or are seen to be cutting corners and using a tray for any of your scharrys’, you will be viciously ostracised. But, what’s life without a little risk?
