Funniest College Memories: A Trip around UK
Sheffield Hallam University organized a trip around the United Kingdom. All of us, very excited, started off at the Robin Hood Airport at Doncaster. A group of twenty eight, along with three members of the faculty landed at the London Heathrow airport. Immediately checked in at Bankside House and stayed the night.
The next day, we were all geared up for sightseeing. We college guys never stop playing pranks on the little guy. This guy, Frank, was in the shower, we locked him up in the bathroom and took our pass key for the door and left for sightseeing. The faculty assumed that he was sick because he was actually a weak guy. He stayed in the shower the whole day till we returned. He missed out on the London eye, Buckingham Palace and the national gallery.
When we returned, we opened and saw him passed out in the bathtub. Poor guy was dehydrated. A trip with friends is always filled with fun. We did not sleep a wink. We were up all night creating a riot in our room. Lucky for us, the room was a little sound proof. We did not disturb our neighbours, the faculty.
The next morning, in all tiredness, we woke up and left to visit the science museum. The visit was worth beyond comparison. At the science museum we lost our little Frank. We searched all over the museum. The entire group was in a state of panic. We were worried that we played a prank on him without our own knowledge, since we love picking on the little guy. We frantically searched the entire museum. Some of us ran to the neighbouring places to search. After nearly an hour of playing hide and go seek, we found him sleeping under our bags in the bus we were touring in. And yes, we gave him a nice little spanking for scaring the daylights out of us.
The next day we head to Dublin. Awestruck by its beauty, we were lost in sightseeing. Places like Collins barracks, St. Michan’s church, the famine sculpture and many more. This time we did not pick on Frank. We gave ourselves a promotion in the prank kingdom. We targeted our faculty. We were at St. Stephen’s green. There was this huge pond with a lot of seagulls. The expected happened. We pushed all three members of the faculty in the pond. We were asked to stay in the hotel room the next entire day. It was worth the prank we played.
We arrived at Wales. We had the opportunity of boarding the Great Orme cable cars. The view was spectacular. We clicked pictures with various retarded facial expressions. Stayed overnight and left to Scotland.
On arrival, the first thing we did after checking in to the hotel, we bought kilts, the traditional Scottish attire. We know it better as skirts. We played the highland games like the weight throw and caber toss. The caber toss was the most difficult yet funniest game we ever played. It was like carrying a tree in our hands and tossing it. The huge Scottish men threw it like a pair of chopsticks. We had guys falling flat on their bottoms with the tree on their faces.
It was an entire fortnight of fun and joy. I just cannot wait for my next trip for college. One interesting fact is kids were given more importance. If you find any children treated in wrong way, you can call child benefit phone number.
