Truly Glorious

I've talked about Seinfeldian moments before , I have just heard another one that is simply too good not to share.

A friend had a dress up party to go to. Lets call him Tired T. His partner wasn't exactly over excited about attending this party. She became even less enamoured with the idea after they had got home at 5.30 a.m on the actual day of said party.

The dress up place they needed to go to to get their outfits was due to close at 1.00 p.m so Tired T had his work cut out for him getting his partner there in time. He said he practically dragged her out the door, strapped their hangovers to the roof and they proceeded to scrap like angry cats all the way there.

A Don Johnson outfit and a spunky pirate suit later they were, at least, equipped with clothes for party (if not mindsets).

The fighting continued during the afternoon, and by the end of the day, she still didn't want to go. However he coaxed her into it and they got Don Johnsonned and pirated up.

Just before leaving Tired T thought he would go and check the address on the invitation............... and in doing so also discovered *whispering* that the party had been the night before.


I think at that point the atmosphere technically froze in their house.

On the Monday he went to take back the outfits, 'Did you have a good party?' Asked the shop assistant brightly. He was too gutted to admit the truth so just mumbled, 'Yes it was great, thank you.' She took the outfits out the back to check they were okay before they gave him his bond back.

The woman came back again. (You know what I'm about to say, don't you?)

'Oh sorry, there's a red wine stain on the inside of the jacket, we won't be able to reimburse your bond.'

Right when he didn't think his weekend couldn't have got any worse.

On the upside, I pointed out, that by sharing his story he's brought much joy to people's lives. (Especially mine, as I've mercilessly has taken the piss out of him ever since I heard it).

Oooh, that one was definitely cringe-worthy. I see Ben Stiller playing Tired T in the movie.

Oh yeah, he does repressed-exploding well.

Oh that's excellent. Shit like that happens me all the time, like the time I drove into town to get a bottle of wine, left the car double parked with the lights flashing, came out of the shop, saw my bus, ran and caught it, felt cars in pocket on way home.

laughykate said...

Oh, that is sensational.

I reckon a statue should be errected in your honour for that.

Mwa said...

Oh, you have to feel for the guy. Poor things!

laughykate said...

HIya Mwa ! Yeah, you do.I did say that if it were me, I would have had to go out.

But he didn't think going out dressed as Don Johnson was such a crash hot idea.
