Drunk Guy Texts Himself, Hilarity Ensues
We all know that drinking and texting can go wrong in so many ways, with results that are sometimes funny but almost always embarrassing. But this English bloke took it to a whole new level – he was so wasted he replied to his own texts.
As we learn from Twitter, Marcus Gray, a 19 year old from Oxford, went out on Saturday to party with his friends. At some point during the night, Marcus sent a text to a friend, asking him if he was in town. There was no reply and he forgot all about it.
When he finally stumbled home, he checked his messages and replied to the same message, writing “Nah mate I’m home now.”
You know how after a night on the town, when there are significant portions of the evening you can’t quite remember, you turn to your phone to solve some mysteries and fill the gaps? Well, Marcus did the same and, upon checking the texts, found that he had indeed replied to his own text.
Marcus seems like a guy who can take jokes on his own account, so he laughed instead of feeling stupid and embarrassed or possibly worried about the amount of alcohol he had to drink to get in this state.
He took a screenshot of the conversation he had with himself and posted it on his Twitter account, where in no time he got 15,000 favorites and over 10,000 retweets, giving Marcus his five minutes of Internet fame.
