Two ordinary blokes from Middlesborough pulled an all-nighter, and in their drunken stupor ended up in Thailand.
Phillip Boyle, a company director from Nunthorpe, had been to the pub then headed home for a few ‘quiet’ bevvies with his mates on an ordinary Friday night, according to the Gazette Live.
But after a night of drinking, the 33-year-old was (easily, we can imagine) persuaded by his buddy to jet to the popular beach resort of Pattaya in Thailand for an impromptu lads’ holiday with only a Tesco carrier bag stuffed with a few tshirts and some boxers.
“We decided on not going out for a crazy night but to buy a few drinks from the petrol station and go to my house for a quiet night,” Boyle claims.
“We then went back to my house by about 1am and just sort of sat there.”
It was then when friend Jamie Blyth, 33, a rigger from Marton, booked a taxi to Manchester Airport. Most of just send drunk texts and that’s the most of our worries, these guys clearly need to be kept under lock and key.
“After lots of jokes, at around 11am the next day with a hangover, Jamie asks if I have my passport handy and comes up with the idea of us going to Thailand straight away,” explains Phillip.
“I thought he was joking at first and then he pointed out how there are quite a few lads from Middlesbrough over there we hadn’t seen for a while.
“Then we got into a taxi he’d phoned and – apart from the short delay of picking up Jamie’s passport – we were off to Manchester Airport. When we got in the taxi we didn’t even have flights.
“It’s a last minute bad idea – but one of those bad ideas that turns into a good idea.”
The pair are making their way back to Middlesbrough today (Tuesday).
Phillip added: “I’d never fancied Thailand before – so going last minute for a few days is perfect.
“Today we’re by the pool and out to complete our version of The Hangover.” Uh oh. We can’t want to see how that worked out…
