Today I'm going to write about the best April Fools' Day joke that was ever played on me. Three years ago, I had been working at my current job only three months. I work at a small rural college. The college that I work at has a nursing program, and they use a fake (but extraordinarily real looking) skeleton for some of the anatomy classes.
I am known to get to the office early in the morning before anyone else, so my boss and one of my coworkers hatched an ingenious (i.e. evil) plan after I left work for the day on the evening of March 31st.
They took one of the skeletons out of one of the anatomy classrooms and placed it in my office chair to be discovered the next morning when I open my door. So the next morning I get there before everyone else as usual, unlocked my office door, opened it, turned the light on, and there was a skeleton sitting in my chair!
I temporarily lost control of all bodily functions.
You know that moment where it takes your brain a nanosecond to register what you are seeing? Well in that nanosecond before my brain was actually able to rationally think and realize what they had done, my life flashed before my eyes. I thought maybe there was a serial killer loose on campus sending me a message. Your next.
After I regained control of my bodily functions (and my dignity), I had to smile at a job well done. Well played boss, well played.
What is the most memorable April Fools' Day joke that you have ever had played on you, or that you have played on someone else?
