Student Prankster Took Sister's Toothbrush On Sightseeing Tour Of London
Have you ever done something totally random and accidental, which definitely shouldn't be funny? In fact, it's more of a complete inconvenience rather than anything else. Then it expectantly turns into the funniest thing... no?
Well, you're in for a treat.
This student prankster decided to wind up her furious sister when she 'accidentally' made off with her sibling's toothbrush - by taking the item sightseeing around London.
Chloe Abbott, 19, was fuming when she realised her big sister Emily, 20, had unwittingly packed her identical toothbrush during an overnight trip to the capital.
But trickster Emily decided to stoke her sister's anger by posing with Chloe's toothbrush at famous landmarks including Harrods, Carnaby street, Fortnum & Mason and waiting for the tube.
One hilarious photo even shows a sharply-dressed shop mannequin accessorising her outfit with poor Chloe's stolen toothbrush.
Emily and her boyfriend Guy Marshman, 24, even posed for a Christmas card-style family photo with the toothbrush - and claimed that their hilarious antics earned them some funny looks.
I'm not that surprised either - I mean, I judge people immediately if they get a camera out to take a picture of a building. If you've seen one, you've seen them all, right?
Despite initially being frustrated by the photos, luckily Chloe eventually saw the funny side of her toothbrush's fun day out and tweeted the pictures with the comment: "Fuming at my sister when she accidentally took my toothbrush to London, she took it on a day out to torment me, wtf am I related to."
Chloe's tweets quickly went viral with more than 54,000 likes, retweets and comments from followers amused by the prank.
Despite some initial protest, Emily has also agreed to buy Chloe a new head for her stolen toothbrush when she returns it - as it is now filthy, following its travels. Or maybe just a new brush? Come on, Emily.
Chloe, from Great Doddington, Northants, said: "Emily is usually a bit of a prankster, but she's never taken it this far. It's been her way of getting out of buying me a new toothbrush. Her first response was, 'I'm not buying you a new toothbrush.'
"Because we're both at university, I hadn't seen her for quite a while - I go home every few weeks, as does she, but it hasn't crossed over for a while. She came home and we both have the same toothbrush, but hers has got her name on it.
"Somehow when she'd left to visit her boyfriend in London she'd picked up mine and took it with her. I went to brush my teeth that night and couldn't find it. At the start I was so annoyed with her.
"I don't know if she realised or not because I rang her up at night fuming and I asked her if she had my toothbrush. She said, 'Sorry, I didn't realise,' but I think she did because hers has her name on it.
"They went out in London for the day and I just got all these photos through. Had it not got this much attention we would have had a massive argument about it.
"It had gone from me being so angry to finding it hilarious - that's my sense of humour anyway. They were sending me all these photos which were hilarious and I put them up on Twitter. That made me laugh so much.
"I've only got that one toothbrush at home but luckily I have another at university. When I go back home at Christmas I want a new toothbrush head. Maybe it'll be a stocking filler."
Emily claimed that it was both she and Guy's idea to wind Chloe up even further by posing with her toothbrush in London. The first photo documents the electric toothbrush's journey into London from Guy's home in Bromley.
It then explored major shopping destinations such as Carnaby Street, visited Regent Street and Piccadilly Gardens and even got its own iconic selfie outside Harrods.
But the photo that gave both sisters the biggest laugh was the 'family shot' of Guy and Emily cradling Chloe's toothbrush between them with a Christmas tree and fireplace in the background.
Emily, who studies business and marketing at Nottingham Trent, said: "We went for a day out in central London and just thought it would be funny to annoy her by sending her photos of the toothbrush with London attractions in the background.
"But the funny thing is, she was actually getting really angry rather than finding it funny. We've got the exact same toothbrushes and I was in such a rush when I left because I was about to miss my train so I just picked up the one that I thought was mine.
"I got to London, didn't think anything of it, and I got this text from Chloe literally shouting at me, saying, 'You've taken my toothbrush.' I thought it was quite funny. My boyfriend was sending her photos trying to wind her up and she was actually getting really angry.
"We got a lot of funny looks and people saying, 'What the hell are you doing?' I think the one of my boyfriend going down the slide with it was really hard to take.
"The one that was of me and him holding the toothbrush in the Christmas room setting was funny too. It looks like a little family setting. The person who took it was like, 'What are you doing?' But he did find it funny after I explained. The whole thing was hilarious.
She continued: "We're definitely very close as sisters. We have our arguments but they only ever last an hour maximum. Hiding her stuff is the main thing but I don't think that's particularly funny."
Unfortunately Emily's mishap meant the sisters had to use each other's toothbrushes for the night - but Chloe hopes to get her own revenge at Christmas.
Chloe, who is a midwifery student at the University of Leeds, said: "I stole her toothbrush that night because she'd left it at home. I hate doing that because I don't want to share a toothbrush with anyone but what was my other option?
"I hadn't thought of getting her anything toothbrush related for Christmas, but I think I'll have to now. I'll definitely get her boyfriend something now. I didn't expect it to blow up at all. It's just one of those things."
What a time to be alive, eh?
