Woman Tricks Man Who Gave Her His Number Into Thinking He's Adopted A Chimp
A woman has pulled the mother of all pranks on an unsuspecting guy who gave her his number, by tricking him into thinking he'd adopted a chimpanzee.
Emily Cain, 18, who goes to uni in Newcastle, decided to have a bit of fun when she started texting the guy, known only as 'Guy', into thinking he was receiving messages from an animal rescue charity.
Genius Emily told the man that he'd set up a direct debit to adopt Bubbles the chimp.
She shared it on Twitter, because obviously we need to see it, and the internet reacted how you'd expect it to, with her tweet receiving 20,000 likes and thousands of retweets.
She wrote alongside the screenshots: "A lad just sent me his number so thought I'd take advantage of it."
And the exchange really is glorious - truly highlighting the frustration of dealing with automated systems.
She began the exchange by sending a text with a photo of a lovely little chimp, saying: "Thank you and congratulations! You have successfully adopted bubbles the chimp! £7.50 will be charged to your bill per month. To cancel this subscription without any further being charged, just reply to this message with the word STOP."
To be fair, it comes across as pretty legit. Clearly not keen on the thought of saving chimps, the guy replies with STOP.
And then this is where Emily starts to have some fun.

She responds: "Thank you and congratulations from us at animal rescue centre and bubbles himself for donating an additional £5 ($6.50) per month to help for food and water for bubbles!"
She again says that to stop it all he can just reply 'STOP' - which he does. But to no avail.
Her next text says thank you for the £3 ($3.90) payment for a cuddly toy, and she puts a photo of a fluffy chimp teddy to accompany it. Pure creativity.
He replies 'STOP' again, following it with an exasperated 'f***ing STOP' - to which Emily tells him he's also adopted Bubbles' mum Bonnie, for an extra £8 ($10.50).
The prankee gets more and more desperate, threatening police action then asking for help off the imaginary customer service department.
When he finally gets through to a 'support officer', he very politely says that he hopes they had a good Christmas, which is all well and good - but let's remember that he still didn't want to adopt little Bubbles.
She eventually owns up, saying: "You've been pranked by the prank patrol, love from emily cain xxx."
He calls her a 'horrible' c-word. He has clearly been absolutely had. Emily definitely won this round.
