April Foolery

Mother Nature played the best prank of all today. We woke up to snow. Boo! Didn't she get the memo that spring is here?

This morning I sent an email out to my shop managers. There were about seven total that I pranked. I told them that the computer system was going down at 10:00 am and would be down the entire day. They would have to do all their work orders in the truck shops by hand on paper and then enter them all into the computer tomorrow. Then I sat back at my desk as they scrambled to the back up plan. I was proud of them that they had a back up plan just in case our computer system really did crash for an entire day. After about 20 minutes to a half an hour after I told them this, I sent them another email saying "Hey suckers, check your calendars and see what day it is, then get back to work. Muhahahahaa, enjoy the rest of your day."

Yes, then my phone rang, the emails started to fly. I'm da debil! Free Smiley Face Courtesy of

Later on when my boss went to lunch, I did this to his office. I wrapped his telephone, planner, calculator, keyboard, mouse, and office chair in Saran Wrap. Yep, I'm da debil! Free Smiley Face Courtesy of

Of course they all screamed about paybacks, but they need to learn the rules of being the April Fool. They have a year to think of ways to get me back.

The kids at home tried to get my hubby and I all day, but they couldn't keep a straight face or keep from laughing, so it didn't go over so well for them. Maybe next year.

Hope your boss and co-workers have a good sense of humor. Seriously, that e-mail was good.

Oooh, you know what they say about paybacks!

And yeah, what's up with yet *more* snow on the ground this morning? I distinctly remember ordering sunshine and warmth!
