Ask and you shall receive. Even on the internet. One man in particular decided to ask Twitter for a simple and pretty innocent request and he received way more than he bargained for. Although things didn’t quite work out as they thought it would.
On Wednesday, Twitter user named Rory went for a birthday drink with his friend Nick in Sheffield, UK. Trying to be funny, he posted a rather lighthearted and innocent request.
The pub they were at was a Wetherspoon’s pub, which conveniently lets you order drinks for people on their behalf through the app.
Maybe they thought a few friends who couldn’t be there to celebrate would send over a pint. Maybe even a stranger or two on Twitter would see the tweet and chip in.
But that wasn’t quite what happened.
