The prank that went wrong… too wrong…

It is a case of April fools prank gone wrong today; you may want to reconsider playing prank again…

A colleague of mine was totally oblivious about today’s date. He is one who is always early at work and today, just as usual, while he was reading his regular stuff over the net early in morning, he received a sms from his girlfriend (who is working in the same building) that reads:

“Help! I am at the car-park and one of the guards is trying to molest me”

My hero colleague who had no idea that today is April Fools’ day rushed down to the car-park in an instant looking to rescue his damsel in distress only to find out that his girlfriend was laughing her ass off at him. He has been made an April Fool by his girlfriend, probably the very first in the office today.

But the story doesn’t end there because my colleague wasn’t satisfied that he was made an April Fool. Thinking that he will be the joke of the day during lunch, he thought of a wonderful prank to release upon his colleagues, which include yours truly.

At about 9.15am, when everyone was already in the office, he called another colleague of mine and said something like this…

“Shit man, I am in deep shit. My girlfriend sent a prank sms to me telling me she was getting molested by the guard in the car park. When I came down, I saw one of the guards and immediately punched him in the face. Now they are holding me up for assault!”

When this second colleague of mine heard this, he told me he was laughing at first because the first colleague was such a moron and landed himself in such situation. The first colleague obviously scolded him over the phone and asked the second colleague to come down. He also asked the second colleague to bring a lot of money down as he wanted to settle the ruckus with money.

When the second colleague put down the phone and while he was still laughing at what he just heard, our in-house building management manager walked past and knowing that the building management manager has good relationship with the building management, the second colleague told the building management manager about the incident. Of course, neither of them knew the whole thing was a hoax!!!

Now that the in-house building management manager heard of this, he then called the building management and asked about the fight which happened in the car park. Yes, from a prank to a misunderstanding and now… it’s a fight. Since this is a fight, guards (the real ones) were mobilised by the building maintenance to the car park and a few of us (yes, by this time, I have already been informed) together with the building management manager went to the car park to meet our good ‘ol colleague… who thought he has made a fool of the second colleague whom he called…

So there we were, the whole legion of people all heading down to the car park together with all the guards and building management and building management manager. Imagine the look on our first colleague’s face when he saw all of us come down and the building management were all there.

What began with a small prank turned out to be… well… quite a prank! But all of us together with the building management and guards didn’t beat the shit out of him because the biggest fool of the day is not him. How can he be the biggest fool when this first colleague of mine who got a prank from his girlfriend didn’t even exist?

Theodwyn said...

I don't quite get it... but my mental age is about 19 months right now... I blame my neice for reducing my maturity.. heh :)

Dan-yel said...

ZEWT!!!!!!!! You pranked all of us! You're gonna pay for this! I almost thought that I'm going to see the day without being april-fooled, but by 11:59pm I reached your last sentence! AAAAHHHH! I was so close to a clean record!

I'd better think twice reading your blog next time!

Kel said...

too late. its over 12 now. by the way. i dont get what you mean there.... Guess the joke backfired to the one who wrote it.

Kel said...

Hey, thats what the use of diary is for. Losing one's memory is bad but you can always dig back the past if you want to. same way of other people digging our past. the problem with my complicated self is that i tend to use multiple password for the diary and log archives on my computer. over 80% are still locked till i can figure the password. Its caused by a permanent head damage(viral infection to the brain at one point)

narrowband said...

Ok I certainly didn't expect a prank here on AZAIG!! Anyway, Zewt, I got pranked elsewhere too. There was this photography forum, I was at the main index page when I saw a thread with the topic (something like) "Newsbreak: PM to step down, DPM to replace". Basket... naturally I also click lah. I even readily opened up another Firefox tab and go to NST online (let that forum thread and NST webpages to load concurrently).

Once inside that thread there was this big April's Fool message. ISHHHKKKKKKKKK

Kel said...
