This bachelor party got off to a bad start!
By Likeitornot Story ID: 137
I was joining a friend of mine's bachelor party and was flying in from another country for the festivities. The bachelor was not supposed to know about any of the plans and I had arranged to stay over at a friends place.
I had told my friend (who was not joining the party) that I would land at the airport around 10 in the evening and that I would be at his place sometime before midnight. He said, 'yeah no problem, i'll be home so just call when you get here. I'll have a sleeping place ready for you'.
He was a good friend of mine, we had grown up together and had a lots of funny stories together.
So when I land at the airport, I send him a text to let him know. No reply. After about half an hour, while I am on the bus, I call him. No response. At this time I start to get nervous.
20 minutes later, I call again. No response. Its now after 11 in the evening, and I am starting to think - 'what if he has fallen asleep??'
I get to his place at about 1130 at night. He lives in a large apartment building so I cant knock on his window. But there is light in the flat. It looks like he is there.
I throw small rocks at the window. No response. I ring the doorbell. No response. I throw more rocks at the window. No response. I ring the doorbell 20 times. Still no response. I call his phone again. No response. Its now almost midnight.
I woman leaves the apartment building and I sneak in the main door before it shuts and walk up to his door. I bang on the door and keep ringing on the doorbell. No response whatsoever. I give up.
I had a small backpack with me with some clothes. I put the clothes underneath me and and lay down. I try to get some sleep. But sleeping on a cold and hard stone floors is not easy. The hallway is also lit super brightly like a 70's style hospital. I get no sleep. At 5 in the morning, the newspaper guy enters the building and has to leapfrog over me. Wonder what what stories went through his mind. 30 minutes later I pack up my stuff and leave.
Before I leave, I put the pack of wine gums I bought for my friend on his stairs. I dont eat wine gums. I head to McDonalds since they are open. I chill there for a couple of hours. Its raining. Its cold. I am tired. What a way to start this bachelor party! Yaaay.
