A man who nipped out for one pint woke up in Magaluf to angry messages from his girlfriend.
Alun Griffiths, 27, received a phone call from his missus who said “food’s ready” just as he touched down on the Spanish resort.
“My Mrs rang me saying ‘where are you?’,” said Alun, who flew to jetted off with pal Nigel Lewis after going for after work drinks on Tuesday.
“I said ‘I’m in Magaluf’ and she said ‘food’s ready’ and I said ‘I’m not joking, I won’t be home for a few days’.
“She wasn’t best pleased.”
He also added:
“I was in work on Tuesday morning and I’d woken up in a stupid mood when you just get a feeling you’re going to do something stupid.
“After work I went to the Gurnos Club and there was about 15 of us all talking about holidays. So I said ‘anyone wants to go on holiday now? Let’s go up the airport and see where we can go anywhere in the world’.”
“There’s a Palma in Italy too so we didn’t know if we were going to the one in Spain or Italy,” Alun added. “We fell asleep on the plane and woke up in Spain – thank God.”
The duo went straight out on the piss as soon as they arrived. They hadn’t even booked a hotel or return flight home.
“The first night we stopped drinking at 5.30am,” Alun said.
“The next morning we kept drinking right through and booked a hotel for the Wednesday night, had a sleep for an hour and carried on and came back on Thursday.”
“When we got back we went back to the Gurnos Club – it was crazy.
“They had all said it’s a stupid idea but because we actually went and broke the routine, when we were out there they were all saying ‘we’re trying to book flights out there’.
“We all ended up booking a holiday to Benidorm.
“My family didn’t know I’d gone until I was out there.”
