Unusual: Man gets so drunk he replied to his own text after night out

By Mirror | February 3rd 2015

UK: A hungover teenager became a Twitter sensation after revealing his embarrassing drunken mishap to the world.

Marcus Gray, 19, from Oxford, was out partying on Saturday to celebrate his friend's last night at home before going travelling to Thailand.

In the early hours at around 4am the River Island worker sent a text to his friend Alex asking him: "Are you in town?"

Then when he got home, before stumbling into bed, he checked his messages and replied to himself: "Nah mate I'm home now."

The next morning he awoke blurry-eyed to discovered his hilarious mix-up and posted it on Twitter - where it got over 11,000 retweets and 15,000 favourites.

Marcus told the Mirror: "It was a pretty normal night we had a good few drinks then before I left I sent Alex a text to see if he was still out.

"Later on when I got home I was obviously still drunk and replied to myself.

"It was only the next morning when I got up that I realised what I had done and how stupid I was!

"I showed my friends and they were all laughing so I thought I'd just put it on Twitter - it's crazy how it's exploded!"

Have you ever replied to your own text while drunk? (Be honest)
