Gareth Kelly is a very brave man. On Sunday, he texted his girlfriend that he was going for a "quick pint," but a few hours later updated her that he was on his way to an airport and would be back in three days. "Sure, hon-" Wait a minute. What…what the? People have questions.

Conversations like this is why texting was invented.

Well, there's not much in the way of answers, exactly, but the screengrab of Kelly's conversation with his girlfriend is gaining momentum on the internet because it is just too funny to be believed.

According to the Sun, Kelly, 30, told his girlfriend Hannah Williams, 20, that he was having a beer ("pint") with some friends after helping his sister move furniture, and that he'd be back soon. But at about midnight, Williams got a text from Kelly reading, "Babe I'm on way to Cardiff airport random holiday I know but I'll be back in 3 days. Xxx"

Williams responded in utter disbelief, "What? Are you (bleep) serious?"

But yes, he was totally serious and he was on his way to Spain. The Sun reports that Gareth Kelly texted his boss at the same time to say he wouldn't be coming in that week, even though he was supposed to show up the next morning.

Williams told the Sun, “I didn’t believe him, I FaceTimed him to see where he was and who he was with, he was just laughing at me in the back of the taxi and telling me he was going to Ibiza."

She continued:

I genuinely thought he was taking the piss, he was just being a clown like he always is, he does normally go for a couple of drinks in the pub at the weekend but never ends up flying to Ibiza. I did find it hilarious though, I feel quite laid back about it. He told me not to worry as he’ll buy me a fridge magnet. He could at least buy me some perfume from duty free."

Williams explained, “He does some crazy stuff sometimes." Oh, you think?

But she added, “He is the only person that could get away with it, especially dropping work for five days. He just texts his boss to say he’ll be away and they were fine with it, he could get away with anything.”

I think we can all agree that Williams definitely deserves a gift for her patience. There aren't too many girlfriends who would be that chill with their man taking off for another country with absolutely no warning at all. A fridge magnet isn't going to cut it. GET HER SOME DAMN PERFUME, GARETH!
