House parties can be hit or miss can’t they?
Sometimes they’re the best thing in the world and you wonder why anyone would ever go to a club. Other times they’re lifeless, atmosphere-sucking holes, which make you wish for nothing more than just getting the hell out of there. So I’ve heard anyway – I don’t get invited out much.
Speaking from no experience though, once you leave a house party you rarely return. Either it’s light outside and you realise you should shower before crawling into work/bed, or, again, you’ve realised it’s a vibe-less pit you have no intention of joining.
It’s not often you leave a party and then return to it (unless you’re on a beer run or something), however that’s exactly what a guy in Glasgow did – or, rather, intended to do.
Instead of returning to the party however, he returned to a different house, but didn’t notice any difference. Thinking the party was over, he snuggled up on the sofa and went to sleep.
He was woken by a bemused – though thankfully friendly – couple who lived at the house, who assured the hungover man there was no party at their house.
Luckily, this being the modern age and all, the errant sleeper whipped out his phone and filmed the whole hilarious encounter.
Check it out:
Amazingly, everyone found the funny side of the situation, with the guy’s new hosts offering him a cup of tea and a cigarette.
As the guy explains:
I went to get a taxi last night. The taxi left and I came into the wrong house.
I came in, got a cover and went to sleep. Instead of going back to the party I went into the house next door.
The guy also took the liberty of making himself a Pot Noodle before crashing out on the sofa, as the Daily Record reports.
A couple woke me up going ‘who are you?’ I’m like: ‘what are you talking about? I was here at the party last night’. And he went: ‘trust me man there was no party here last night.’
Thank god this woman is from Glasgow. She was like ‘aye we’re welcoming’. Got a cup of tea and a fag!
While this could’ve gone horribly wrong – the term breaking and entering springs to mind – it’s a relief to see everyone finding the funny side!
