Good Prank played on me

Postby perlick29 » Mon Sep 18, 2006 1:12 pm

I play in a Yahoo survivor pick'em league for Pro Football. I play with all my co-workers so it's almost thirty people. One of the people who work in my office changed my team name to "Soft Rib". Then he change my pick from Cincy who won, to Oakland who of course lost, eliminating me. My boss is laughing about it right now and I suspect it was him, and am trying to get the commissioner to let me back in by changing my week 2 pick.

Either way a good rib by one of my co-workers which has us all laughing. You guys have any "soft ribbing" stories? (don't make soft ribbing out to be something dirty. I'm talking about playing pranks.)

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

So, I take it one of your fellow co-workers is that little leprechaun companion of Finlay's. :-b

changing your team name is a harmless joke. but changing your team pick and eliminating you from a league isnt cool at all. unless it was free then it's funny i guess.

I agree with miner. Changing the name is a prank. Chaning your picks, and ultimately eliminating you is being a jerk, even for a fun league. If someone went on to your account for baseball and changed your lineups around or dropped your good players, I don't think most people would laugh it off as a prank...this seems like the same thing to me.

I'm just wondering why he chose you as the target of this prank. It's either a good thing or a bad thing. I just can't figure that part out yet.

Here's what I want you to do if you find out it's the boss:

Get an old record sleeve and fill it with shaving cream. Slip the open side under his door. Jump on it. Run away.

Laugh when he complains his office is covered in shaving cream.

Hey, this is the WWE. Why am I not surprised they gave you, perlick, my smark-in-training the screwjob of Montreal Screwjob proportions? :-b

I recommend your way at getting back at him is if that fella enjoys a good spot of tea a la William Regal, you ruin it by turning that tea into "P" a la Chris Jericho. :-D !+)

Revenge is sweet.
I'd do something subtle like putting vaseline on his car door handle.
Remember, you really don't want to piss your boss off to much unless you plan on leaving in the near future.
