A guy named William George Armstrong admitted on Twitter that he got pretty freaking drunk this week and, somewhere during his adventures, lost his ID. Common occurrence. Less common is that some good samaritan actually returns your ID. But Armstrong's experience was the rarest of all—he got pranked, and it was actually a good prank.
Armstrong shared images of the letter he received from Flight Centre Cheltenham from a staff member named Steve, according to Bored Panda. Inside, it appears that Armstrong has some flight documents.
Documents that appear to be a ticket to the Maldives.
And a bill for about $6,947.
Gotcha! Steve was just returning his ID, which was found outside their shop. Just wanted to put the fear of God in him, I guess.
Everyone loves this story, especially because Armstrong appears to have searched out the pranking Steve in person, and they're very cute together:
Of course, the whole thing could just be a publicity stunt. The company certainly isn't passing up an opportunity to make it one, now that Armstrong is experiencing viral fame.
But you know what? No one cares.
What an excellent way to return your license and fantastic PR for a very good company - can definitely recommend them 👍🏻 My Lord 😂🤔😉🤫— sofa_surfer (@the_sofa_surfer) November 8, 2017
A good prank is rare, and should be cherished.
