​LAD Goes For Post-Work Pint, Ends Up In Majorca

​LAD Goes For Post-Work Pint, Ends Up In Majorca

Look, we've all been there. And by 'there', I do of course mean going out for one after work before suddenly finding yourself swaying about on the last bus home with a portion of cheesy chips in your lap. FFS.

But one LAD decided to go the extra mile (or the extra 1,250 miles, I should say), having gone out for a cheeky pint after work... only for that to quickly escalate into a lads' holiday in Majorca.

Twenty-seven-year-old Alun Griffiths, who's from Merthyr Tydfil in Wales, popped out for an after-work bevwith some mates one afternoon. Sounds nice, doesn't it?

But then they got chatting about holidays.

"I said, 'Fuck it, let's go now!'" Alun explained.

Alun's friends bailed on the spontaneous idea - apart from one, Nigel, who said he'd be up for it. Yes Nige!

They nipped home to grab their passports and a rucksack of clothes, before arriving at Cardiff airport and asking what the next flight out of there was. Their only choice was the 10.40pm flight to Palma in Majorca. There are definitely worse places to end up.

It wasn't long before they found themselves out on the Magaluf strip - Nigel was even so drunk that Alun managed to convince him into getting some random person's name tattooed on his chest.

"We only had a one-way ticket out there and no hotel or means to get home," Alun told LADbible.

"So we drank till 6 in the morning, fell asleep on the beach til half 7 and got woken up by security because it was a private beach... and then started drinking all day again."

By Thursday morning, they had had enough and were ready to head home - though not before stopping off at Gurnos Social Club in Methyr Tidfil where it had all started.

Thankfully, Alun's girlfriend took the news of what had happened pretty well, and even made sure he had some fresh food to come home to.

According to the Metro, Alun reckons he and Nigel spent £800 each on their impromptu trip - but they had such a good time that the two of them have booked themselves in for another holiday to Benidorm in Spain, this time with a few other friends.

Maybe next time you could give your missus a heads-up that you won't be home in time for tea though, eh?
