Source- It could have been a case of looking for love in all the wrong places – especially when a single trucker decided to text the mobile phone number he found scrawled on a toilet wall.
But what began as a whim turned into the greatest love of all for Mark Ellis and Donna Roberts. The 51-year-old, of Brighouse, West Yorkshire, discovered the number while using the toilet at his local pub.Written by Roberts’ ex, the unflattering message read: ‘If you want a good s*** call Donna on…’
Ellis then cheekily decided to text the number and wrote: ‘Hi. What are you up to?’ Speaking to the Sun on Sunday, the love-struck trucker said: ‘I was curious to know if it was a real human being. We still laugh about it.’
Roberts, a legal secretary, was at first perplexed by how Ellis had found her number, but the couple soon struck up a conversation and met just days later.The couple now have two kids, aged eight and nine, though they are unaware of how their parents first met. Roberts added: ‘I usually say that he texted me by mistake.’
They say love knows no boundaries. And I guess that includes finding the love of your life on the bathroom wall of your favorite pub. Can I fault Mark Ellis here? Not a chance. If I walk into any bar bathroom and see a phone number with “If you want a really good fuck call Donna here,” I’m going to text that number 10 times out of 10. If you find anyone that says they wouldn’t they’re lying through their teeth.
This is also the best and worst thing that ever happened to Donna. The best because she found the love of her life and the couple now have two kids (which is insane). But also the worst because her Ex who wrote the message on the bathroom wall can hold that over her for the rest of her life. Plus, eventually I’m sure her husband will tell their kids how he got their mother’s phone number, and she’ll have to pay out the nose for therapy.
This is my favorite bathroom message scene in movie history.
Note: I’m beginning to think that this may be fake. Like after she found out the guy got her number from a pub’s bathroom wall, she still agreed to meet him? She must’ve really been desperate and might actually be a “good shag.”
