Phil Boyle and Jamie Blyth had been to their local pub and were continuing an all-night affair with drinks at home when Jamie, 33, suggested they go on holiday - straight away.
Although Phil, 33, was initially sceptical, he was soon talked into the unexpected break and, after filling a carrier bag with boxer shorts and T-shirts and making a quick trip to pick up Jamie's passport, the pair headed straight to Manchester Airport.
After two seven-hour flights, the spontaneous pair arrived in Pattaya and met some undoubtedly surprised friends who were already partying there.
Phil, a company manager, said: "Jamie asks if I had my passport handy and came up with the idea of us going to Thailand straight away. I thought he was joking at first – but then pointed out there are quite a few lads from Middlesbrough over there we haven't seen for a while."
The taxi driver who drove them to the airport revealed he was used Jamie's sudden outbursts of spontaneity and has driven him to Manchester airport four times in the past.
Phil added: "I thought that was hilarious and then said "OK, I'm in".
