There are New Year’s Eve parties and then there are crazy New Year’s Eve parties like the one Tom Bentley and his friends had a few years ago at his first apartment. Bentley and a bunch of friends drank a fair amount of alcohol and then decided to strip their clothes off and go for a naked midnight walk.
Soon, they saw two people walking toward them in the dark down the block, so Bentley and his friends decided to play a prank and approach the couple, “acting as though we were fully-clothed, at ease, and wishing them a Happy New Year’s.”
When the group were a few feet away from the couple, Bentley had a startling realization: It was actually his landlord and landlady.
“Without saying a word, we turned and bolted for the house,” Bentley said. “We ran in, partly in full bloom, screaming that the landlord was outside.”
But it was too late: The landlord and landlady had recognized them, and soon were at the door of the apartment, threatening to call the cops on them all.
The next day, Bentley found a note on his door from the landlady saying they had until the end of the weekend to vacate the apartment.
