A MAN has given his girlfriend an Easter egg after getting his dates mixed up.
Wayne Hayes knew this was one of those days when you have to buy a card and a thing from the 24-hour garage, so assumed it was Easter because they had chocolate eggs for sale.
He said: “When she unwrapped the egg it seemed that she was sort-of cool with it. I mean you’ve got one large milk chocolate egg and two Wispas in a presentation box, it’s a good present whatever the time of year.
“Things only turned sour when she opened the card which had a picture of a rabbit with a basket underneath the words ‘Have an Egg-citing Easter’. She went in the other room and shut the door, I thought I could hear crying but I expect she’ll be alright later on.
“We’ve been together four years.”
Hayes’s girlfriend Nikki Hollis said: “He seemed nervous this morning and I actually thought he was going to propose. I don’t even like Wispas and he knows that.”
Hayes added: “I spent ages choosing that egg.”
