A woman’s holiday plans were ruined after Thai authorities refused to let her into the country – because she’d used her passport as toilet paper.
“I just said that I had lost the pages because I was too embarrassed to explain the real reason. “Before I could explain more, they had deported me back to Dubai and then to Glasgow and confiscated my documents.”
“We were walking from one bar to the next and we must have been desperate for a wee and obviously didn’t have any toilet roll.
“We decided it would be a good idea to use my passport, which is obviously really stupid. It was maybe two or three pages. I was a bit drunk so didn’t even think about the consequences.”
“My friend had to stay in Thailand while I was rushed back home.
“I felt like I was a criminal – people were looking at me wondering why a border official was sat with me the whole time. I don’t know what a criminal looks like but I’m not one.”
“I am baffled. If I was stopped and told in Glasgow, I could have just postponed my flights instead. I can’t wait to get back out there.”
