Teen finds a message bottle, shocking message inside
When you stumble upon a message bottle on the beach, you hope that you might have discovered something mysterious or scary. You hope it’s a love story lost in time at least. Something similar happened to 13 year old Robbie Chappell when he found a message bottle when he was walking his dog .
He ran home as soon as he found the bottle thinking he had found something really special. He asked his step-dad, Robert Smith, to film the whole thing as he then proceeded to smash the bottle to read the note.
Robbie discovered the ‘world’s worst message in a bottle’ while walking near Langstone Harbour, in Hampshire, with his mum, Catherine, and their dog, Ben.
Catherine, his mother said,”
We thought it might be something exciting from France from years ago, but actually it was from a couple of druggies the day before.
‘We had all these exotic ideas of what it might be and Robert thought it would be a good idea to film the grand opening. It could have been anything.”
The message read as ..
The 45-year-old Catherine, who runs a vintage camera sales business with Robert, 51, said: ‘We were pretty astonished by it so we thought we had to share the video with people.”
‘We didn’t expect it to be shared 16,000 times. Robbie doesn’t seem bothered about it.
‘I do wonder if the people involved have seen it at all. I’d be surprised if they haven’t.’
Maybe next time, Robbie.
