Husband digs 2,600ft tunnel to the local pub – just to escape the sound of his wife

Living with someone you love it’s great. You laugh, eat and sleep together.

But there are some disadvantages as well. One of the most common problems in a relationship is that one of them snores.

This man, George, was tired of his wife’s snoring keeping him awake at night. But the way he dealt with it was fantastic.

I don’t know if this is a true story, but it’s been circulating on the net a lot – and is pretty funny!

More importantly, George, a plumber happily married to his wife, had a problem, she snored very loudly and the only way George could sleep was by drinking a few beers before bed.

Inspired by a movie

800 meters (0.5 Miles) from his house was the local pub. After watching the movie The Shawshank Redemption, where a prisoner digs a tunnel for 19 years to escape prison, he found the inspiration he needed.

Therefore George, using his tools, digs a tunnel that ran under the house and all the way to the pub, a project that took him 15 years to complete.

The tunnel ended in the ladies’ restroom inside the pub, and around 11 p.m. every night, he would break in, drink a few beers, and go back home to sleep.

The neighbor’s pipe broke

But when a neighbor’s sewage pipe broke, the police found the tunnel, and George had a lot of explaining to do. At that time, he admitted his guilt and confessed.

George, glad that he got caught, said – My wife was wondering why I smelled like alcohol every morning. And the owner of the pub was getting suspicious because I just popped out of nowhere every night – according to the site Men’s Corner.

There are good and bad ways to solve a problem, but this man’s solution made me burst out in laughter. Share this story with your beer-loving friends!
