We've all had those times when we're drunk and we get silly – no, crazy and ridiculous! From texting your ex, ordering funny random things online, blurting out words that shouldn't be uttered and all other surprising things. But this one's topping the list so far!
One student recently woke up to find someone had bought a mad expensive flight itinerary to the Maldives in his name, after losing his ID on a night out.
To add to this worrying incident (or accident?), the four booked tickets are of first class, amounting to £5,289.87.
The accompanying letter from the Flight Centre was addressed to ‘Lord George William Armstrong’ and read: ‘Thank you so much for popping in the other day. ‘We certainly appreciate your business and hope your (sic) beginning to get excited about your upcoming first-class flight to the Maldives.
‘Please keep in mind, balance is due in full on Friday 10 November at 12.05pm.’
One may consider to curl up in bed and bang their heads for being in this situation, but there was another letter enclosed! It turns out, the whole thing was actually an elaborate joke from a Flight Centre member of staff. Steve, who works at the Cheltenham branch, found William’s ID outside the Flight Centre shop and wanted to get it back to him…but not before completely messing with him. At the bottom of the letter, it said: ‘Just make sure you consider us for your next holiday. Take care! Steve’. And since then, the two have actually met up and Will has been reunited with is precious ID.
Well? Lesson learned.
