It’s the thought that counts, right?
One guy tried to make his girlfriend’s birthday extra special by in-scripting “Happy 30th birthday princess, love you millions” on a gin glass.
He thought it would make it extra special.
South West News Service (SWNS) reported that instead, the glass arrived with the message, “Can we have it delivered before Monday if possible as that’s her 30th. Nice one.”
Varey suspects that he mixed up the inscription with the message for the delivery driver while placing the order. We’re not sure which message is better…
“I was aiming to make Hayley’s birthday as special as I could for her so I bought her loads of gifts, booked a holiday for February 2021 (fingers crossed it happens),” he told SWNS. “The gin glass 100-percent cheered her up, she couldn’t stop laughing.
“When I was putting the order through for the glass, it came up with a section saying ‘note for the glass’ and additional notes for the business,” he explained. “I got them back to front. I had a feeling that I did something wrong because I’m so dopey and I literally rushed the order as Hayley was sat next to me so [I] had to do it secretly.”
Fortunately, Varey’s girlfriend, Hayley Woodward, found the mix-up hilarious.
Varey said, “I gave it to her yesterday morning and she literally burst out crying with laughter, it came gift wrapped so I didn’t see it before she opened it, and I was like, ‘What the hell is wrong with you? I’ve put my heart and soul into that glass!’ Then she showed it to me and I was mortified!”
It still serves its purpose though so all is good.
