A UNIVERSITY fresher has no idea how he became best friends with the first student he spoke to.
Engineering student Tom Booker met fellow first-year Wayne Hayes on their induction day at the University of Nottingham. They have since spent every waking moment together, despite having nothing in common except that they are both secretly missing their mums.
Tom Booker said: “We met when we were both in a corridor confused, I was like ‘Is Room 4B this way?’ and he replied ‘I’m looking for 4B too.’ At the time it seemed like such a crazy coincidence that we were both looking for Room 4B, and a reasonable basis for an incredibly close friendship that transcends even brotherhood.
“It’s quite surprising that we are now best friends as we don’t actually have much in common. I’m sporty and he’s a gamer, I like going out drinking and he likes sitting in his room blazing up.
“He’s not even funny! His best man speech is going to be shite.”
Wayne Hayes said: “I can tell he’s thinking of ditching me as soon as he meets some ‘cool people’. That sucker doesn’t realise I’ve just joined the Fantasy Roleplaying and Wargames Society, where I plan to really ‘find myself’ and have a lot of sexual intercourse.”
