No April Fool's Day stories?
I didn't pull any real big ones this year, just a couple fun ones.
I went to help set up for the no-kill shelter's big rummage sale and I went in on crutches. I said I'd do what I could, but I turned out to be pretty inept at anything. I told the shelter owner that I had slipped on cat vomit the day before and had a hairline fracture of my ankle. After a few minutes, I said it was worse with the crutches than without. I put the crutches down and went to work without even a limp. The other people "got it" and laughed. Five minutes later, the owner asked which hospital I had gone to. Seriously.
This was a better one. Last week, I got a FedEx delivery, with a delivery note that wasn't filled in. I cut off the bottom with the UPC code, filled in the blanks, and put it in my neighbor's mailbox. It was now a delivery notice for "Two large crates of LIVE ANIMALS" that had been left in "Large White Barn". They had searched and searched the huge 2-story barn and finally remembered my propensity for practical jokes. I enjoyed getting that phone call!
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you're a mile away and you have his shoes.
