Some folks will go to any length to save a buck … or a few bucks.
Case in point: one Adam Armstrong of Manchester England.
Armstrong says his girlfriend’s stepdad accidentally booked him as “Adam West” when buying his ticket on Ryanair because “Adam West” is what Adam Armstrong calls himself on Facebook because Batman because dumb.
But, since the name on the ticket has to match the name on the passport, Adam couldn’t use the ticket, and so he called Ryanair to change the name on the ticket from “Adam West” to “Adam Armstrong.” And Ryanair agreed to change the name on Adam’s ticket, but for a fee, of course, because airlines because corporate greed because money.
The fee was £220, or about $336 American and Adam Armstrong thought this was exorbitant so … Adam Armstrong found out that it would be cheaper to legally change his name to Adam West ... it's free ... and then he would have to pay just £103 or $157 American for a new Adam West passport.
And that’s what he did cuz being Batman is cheaper.
