April Fools!

Wednesday, April 01, 2009 Posted In , Edit This 11 Comments »

I hate April 1st. I hate the pranks, the calls from my mother trying to fool me, etc. I always call my sister to remind her that the day is April 1st, so she'll have a head's up that my mother will inevitably be calling to prank her.

However, this year I decided to get in on the action! I have a coworker that is a perpetual prankster. He's gotten me more times than I can count, so I wanted a little payback.

I took a screenshot of his desktop, complete with the Georgia Bulldog logo background and all the icons. I then set it as his desktop background and turned off the icons.

When he came to work this morning and logged into his computer then double clicked on his email icon it failed to work. So did his internet icon. And his solitaire icon. He promptly rebooted.

Upon logging in again, he found that the icons still didn't work. That's when he called in my service to fix his computer. While he answered the phones for me, I 'fixed' his computer and told him I didn't know what the problem was, it was working fine for me.

However, every time he gets up and moves away from his desk, I again turn the icons off.

Needless to say, he's ready to toss his desktop computer out the window.

I think I may tell him the truth sometime next week.

That's hilarious!! A co-worker did that to me once. I got him back by taking the little ball outta his mouse and unplugging his keyboard from the hard drive.
