Funny story from your time overseas:
Being picked up by my (Wexican👎) girlfriend drunk, opening the window whilst she was driving and yelling ‘up Wicklow’ at a cyclist and frightening the life out of them. I didn’t realise I was outside my house when this happened so we parked and went in. The next morning I woke up to my tyres slashed.
Funny story from before you left home:
Life was tough with not much job opportunities so I took up selling Christmas trees. One day in the middle of killing it at my sales skills with a buyer, I noticed at the corner of my eye and old Wexford man amongst the trees. I then realised he was taking a dump.. that ended my career rapidly and it was the same say I booked my flight to Australia.
