This is a cool cop from the bike board he posted this just today....... I was thinking about how a friend of mine got me one time and how I sought my revenge. We have been going back and forth with fun, elaborate practicle jokes, and I want to be very creative in getting him back. Here are the ones we have done to each other so far (in random order). ---------- Got hotel stationary and envelope from out of state. Called the 800 number on the bottom, and got a district manager's name. Typed up BS letter explaining that due to the destruction to the room, and lack of payment to fix damage, the hotel was now sending the bill to collections. Signed district manager's name. Put letter, which was professionally written out on the hotel letter head and put it in the hotel envelope. Put stamp on it, and put sealed envelope into another envelope that was addressed to the post office with the same zip code as the hotel and a post-it note asking to forward the letter so that it would have the appropriate zip code on it. My friend spend hours with the hotel trying to resolve a non-existant complaint. That was fun. ---------- He put an ad in the local paper advertising an estate/antique sale at my house at 6am on a Saturday morning. He knew that I got off work at 0400 that day. I had at least 40 people before 8am. ---------- Years ago, he went on line and typed "Free catalogue" and "Free offer" in to a Google type search engine and signed me up for every known catalogue, both by email and snail mail. I was getting magazines for everything known to man. ---------- He got a brand new car and it was his pride and joy. Working with his wife, I got the keys to his car. I went to the junk yard and bought a piece of door glass from a junker car. I smashed the glass and collected all the little pieces. I then went to his precious car, rolled down the window, then spread the collected glass pieces inside and outside his car to make it look like his window was smashed out. Then, I went in to his house to visit him (as scheduled). About a half hour later, using his wife's keys for his car, I activated the "Panic" alarm. We ran outside and he saw "his" window smashed and a kid about a block down the street. He ran after the kid, who professed his innocence. He returned to the car, and without ever rolling the window up to "see" if it was really broken, proceeded to call a repair shop. Being that this was a practicle joke, I decided not to intervene when he took his car in to get "fixed." ---------- He bought a device that attached to my phone box outside that made every third call or so the wrong number. It would freak my wife and I out. We would use the redial button, and get the wrong number that was right just 10 seconds before. We would use the memory buttons and get the wrong number, just not every time. After about 3 months of frustration, the phone company came out and found the device. He later showed me another device that would have made about every 5th call in to the house give the caller an indication that the number was disconnected, but he decided against it. The rules are, any financial output of the "victim" has to be split by both. So, when I got the bill from the phone company, he had to split it with me. Any thoughts? I would like an elaborate, fun, "GOTCHA" type idea.
