April Fools' suffers many fools, namely those who aren't paying attention to the date. And while it's fun to play pranks on friends and fam, there are true April 1 lovers who take it to the next level: their boss.
Now first, a disclaimer. Before you embark on a text prank of the foolish variety aimed toward the person who employs you-- know their humor. We can't stress this enough. If you don't have the kind of relationship or the kind of boss who appreciates a well-placed prank, skip it and do something silly tomorrow-- like cover their car in sticky notes.
If you've thoroughly assessed the situation and know it will be fun, or total torture, for all-- proceed.
1. I QUIT.
This is the big one. Sure to get your boss' heart rate rising.
Danger zone: Red. Hide under your desk Monday am.
2. I’M NOT WHO I SAY I AM.
Are you Lara Croft? Maybe.
Danger zone: Yellow. A little bit a mellow with a side of WTF.
3. I'M HAVING A BABY AND IT'S YOURS.
Danger zone: Yellow. Keeping it chill and silly.
4. I'VE BEEN OFFERED ANOTHER JOB.
It pays double.
Danger zone: Yellow. Proceed with caution.
5. I NEVER SIGNED MY NDA.
Just had a chat with the LA Times.
Danger zone: Red. You better bring her donuts in the morning.
6. LOVE YOU. MEAN IT.
Because it's totally mean to make your boss sweat bullets on a Sunday.
Danger zone: Green. A well-placed 'love ya' can go a long way.
