“So I Was Pretty Drunk The Other Night And I Lost My ID, Then This Turns Up Today…”

“So I Was Pretty Drunk The Other Night And I Lost My ID, Then This Turns Up Today…”

You know the story, you get drunk, wake up, realize your driver’s license is gone, then a $6,947 bill for your first-class trip to Maldives arrives. Ok, maybe the last part isn’t the result of most Friday evenings, but it’s what William George Armstrong found after his night out.

“Thank you so much for popping in the other day. We certainly appreciate your business and hope your beginning to get excited about your upcoming first class flights to the Maldives,” Flight Centre wrote in their letter. They also included the price in big red letters. “Please keep in mind, balance is due in full on Friday, November 10 at 12.05pm.”

But before Will got a heart attack, everything turned out to be an elaborate prank by Flight Centre Cheltenham’s staff member, Steve. The bottom of the letter revealed the guy wasn’t drunk-shopping at all. “George, we’re just kidding. We’ve found you’re driving license (enclosed) outside our shop and thought you might need it,” the Flight Centre employee wrote. This emotional rollercoaster of a story has reached 160k likes on Twitter and whether or not it was a PR stunt, kudos to Steve for his awesome sense of humor.

William George Armstrong had one crazy evening followed by an even crazier morning

Aside from losing his driver’s license, Will also found a letter from Flight Centre the next day

It included the summary of his first-class trip to Maldives

And a heart attack-inducing price

But once he flipped the letter, he saw a message from Flight Centre Cheltenham’s staff member, Steve

Who found the ID and decided to go the extra mile when giving it back

Whether or not it was a PR stunt, the internet loved it

I'd probably suffer a heart attack, I'm always nervous.

Speaking as someone that had one at the age of 50 (in June 2017) - if you are overweight, do not exercise, smoke, and there is a history of it in your family - then your chances are sky high. Not trying to be smart, ok? If you are any of these factors, and you are young enough to make changes in your life - DO IT. But, people need to hit rock bottom like I did, before any warnings are heeded.

brent is correct. The sentence should read "we've found *your* driving license" Not "we've found *you are (you're)* driving license".
