My April Fool's joke for today:
Friend: what ur pulling is worst than if you had told ur friend you were going to her wedding and didnt..
Me: I didn't say it was me
Me: I said guess who
Me: it's not my fault everyone is guessing wrong!
Friend: you even ended it with a sad face..
Friend: *shakes head*
Me: I am legitimately sad that someone out there is looking for work agian
Friend: oh marcus lol
Yes, I am a bastard. =)
I had email and facebook up on my second monitor and anytime someone posted a comment that might have given away the joke (generally involving the terms april fool's in the comment, or just comments which seemed out of place), I deleted them. So there were a lot more replies, but I removed them because they might have given them away.
One friend even commented (after I deleted two of her comments) "Hey, ppl's comments are getting deleted. I didn't know you could do that.". Her comment was promptly deleted.
A couple of people called/texted me, a couple of people pinged me on office communicator/msn. One friend even pinged another friend to ask what had happened instead of me, who was clearly online.
Thanks to hunter006
for being in on the joke and playing along. It evolved in the early morning while we (or at least I) was gearing up at work. I had originally thought of making the status "got laid off again..." but though that would be a bit too on the button, and evolved it into its slightly more ambiguous final form.
Best April Fool's joke I've played in awhile.
