No, I just messaged the mum separately and told her that she made a mistake. She sent a crying laughing emoji and apologised and that was that. Not a great story, on reflection.
Similarly, but much better, Billy Rawlinson was added to a group chat on Whatsapp by accident, as a group of ladies were shaping up to celebrate their friend Sandra’s 50th birthday.
Billy decided to roll with it and masquerade as Lorraine. The women took the bait, and that’s when Billy took things further.
He started asking about male strippers, and then moved things on to cocaine… have a look…
God, what were the chances that Buffy was a copper? Mind you, she’d be able to get a good stash from the evidence locker.
Billy posted the screenshots to Twitter, amassing over 20,000 retweets and 100,000 likes. I would post the tweet on this article but a few of the ladies from the chat saw and weren’t happy about their numbers being posted online (I blurred them out myself).
He did apologise though…
Don’t think you can now it’s posted, I really wish I could, sorry! I’m happy to send you guys £50 for some drinks to say sorry for posting the numbers
