Winning a free vacation to Puerto Rico sounds like perfection but what happens when you can’t bring your better half? That’s what happened to Kevin Blandford, who scored the trip for being an awesome employee — but later found it was going to be a trip for one.
His wife, Bonnie, could’ve come along but she didn’t want to leave their seven-month-old daughter so Kevin had to make a tough choice: Figure out a way to smuggle in their daughter; or bring close pal and former colleague Alec?
Blandford chose the latter. At the airport, Alec took a sad shot of Kevin and the rest, as they say, is Reddit history.
Kevin, feeling crummy at the casino:
At a pleasantly named boat, feeling anything but:
Looking depressed in a doorway:
Even more woeful under a waterfall:
Drinking alone at a party is never fun:
Especially when it’s the saddest sangria ever:
Some say Blandford is the lucky one but his wife had the bed to herself for five days. That’s nothing to sneeze at. But it looks like the entire family will be vacationing soon after all. Since the pics went viral, Blandford has been offered more free Puerto Rican vacations — this time with room for his wife and daughter. So looks like they all win.
For that next trip with your significant other…
