April Fooled

So. Did anyone pull off a good one today? Or was anyone subject to a decent prank?

and no. I'm not talking about "Some kid posted that UFC was building in Russia and I SO thought Fedor was coming over!"

I'm talking about like when I came into work today, I had a client complain about an invoicing error and that:

"I don’t know where you guys have your heads shoved, but I suggest pulling them out rather fast. I’m sick and tired of getting check every month and it being for an incorrect amount. Is Robert in control of the invoicing? I really think Rob needs to go, I’ve already emailed your CEO and told him I’ve had nothing but negative experiences with Rob… it’s time for him to go."


and then got called into a meeting with our CEO where he tells me to get my act together and fix this problem. So I wallow in my fear of getting fired for a good hour and get this from the guy after we told him that everything looks fine on our end:

"WHAT?!?! Now you’re calling me a F*CKING LIAR?!!!! I bet this is Rob’s fault again… I’d tell you what I’m going to do to him next time I see him, but I’ll try to keep this email professional."

Yes, I can read the f*cking numbers correctly, have Rob go back and see if he’s reading the numbers correctly… Honestly, I’m emailing your CEO again."

At that point, I'm like WTF? he wants to fight? Bring it!..... and then I realized I'm an idiot. They were all in on it and even though they were joking, it took me like a good hour to calm down. They took me to lunch, too.

Phew.... anyone? anyone?

I told my mother I was pregnant, she went insane for a bit, but then I let her know that I had actually gotten an abortion earlier this morning. She was so proud.

Damn! Would anybody narc you if you kept a flask or some tranks in your desk for times like this? You work with sharks. You're like Samuel L. Jackson except the f*ckin shark didn't eat you. Sorry, I had to.

I still have 3 hours to pull something out. (AAAYOOOO!!!) I would normally just call my parents and tell them I was arrested, but since I just got a DUI, it would probably just make them have a stroke. Hmmm...telling some friends I got a chick pregnant and need their help? DONE!

My roommates hidden my ADHD meds for a few hours which I thought was over the line, I actually got really really pissed off with them and attempted to slap one of them. Before they did all that, they also tricked me into believing my bf was going to propose to me which freaked me a bit because I soooooooo don't want him to do that.

It was such an emotional day for me lol.

Your roommates seem to not understand the point of this holiday.

You know, if you're married, it'll be much easier to get in his will...I would have just told you he had a stroke.

Yeah they realised they were a bit out of line, they never seen me have a full-blown freakout before and I they saw it wasn't really a joke to me.

Seriously enough about of the bf/nearly dead jokes lol

And thank you for your sympathy

haha, that reminds me of a prank my friends pulled on their one-legged roommate. They took his leg and hid it on the top shelf so he couldn't get it and then hid it in someone else's dorm room. I seriously met the kid hopping down the hallway asking, "have you seen my leg?"

college was an eye-opening experience.
