Couple Buys Hotel While Drunk

 

We’ve all made impulse purchases that we now regret but a British couple on their honeymoon may have just taken the cake! Gina Lyons and Mark Lee were on their honeymoon in Sri Lanka when they stayed at a rustic beach hotel.

He went on to tell the couple that the hotel was actually closing down because they could not make their lease payments. After 12 or so drinks, the couple decided to make the payments which came out to roughly 40,000$. Terrifying right?
