And the pranks continue (part 2)
Thursday, April 10, 2008
Dang. I can't freakin believe this. Not only did my attempt to get back at Bro today fail, but he also got me...again.

We have a meeting tomorrow in the office and Bro asked me to draft an agenda for the meeting. As I opened up MS word and began typing in a header and bullet points, I soon realized that this could be my chance to get back at him for yesterday's little stunt. With a fiendish gleam in my eye, I hit "Backspace" on the keyboard, and replaced some agenda items with silly phrases/inside jokes we say. I told my other team member about my scheme, and said I'd CC her on the email so that Bro wouldn't suspect it was a prank.

Unfortunately the plan backfired after I sent off the email. I guess Bro was super busy today, because I know he would've IMed right away after seeing the agenda. Here's how it was supposed to work: I send him email, he opens agenda, we all get a good laugh out of it, and then I resend him the real agenda. But then he IMed me saying he wouldn't get to it until the evening. Well, hells bells. Talk about major set back. I knew if I sent off the real agenda without him seeing the first one, he would just assume I was sending an updated one and not bother reading the first. So basically I had to tell him about my failed plan when I insisted he open the email. "Hah. Nice try, but it would've been better if the element of surprise wasn't dead," he said.

Less than an hour later, he "forwards" me an email with documents the client sent over. I start opening the attachments, and then I get to a "revenue recognition" word document. Open and.....

*sigh*

So the guy in the picture is someone from work who supposedly thinks I'm cute, but a) he's not my type and b) he's in a different dept. which is, how shall I put this... lower ranked than me. Bro teases me about it all the time because he says I'm a rank snob. Whatever, fine, I'll admit it. I just can't believe Bro caught me off guard... again. And I'm telling you, one of these days one of us is going to get in trouble when one of these files gets sent to the wrong person, or worse, a client.

So let's go over the status again:

Bro - 2
Daphne - 0

    LOL, poor you, LOL :) and true, ain't Holly helping you on evil ideas? I personally don't have one right now, but gotta think of something that'll really even score. Sending him inside jokes instead of the agenda is a bit weak ^_^;

    I love how you guys automatically associate Holly with the 'evil' plots. See Holly, you're EVIL! mwahahaha

    You mentioned Bro being on his guard now. It would be tough to get one over on him right now.

    Holly will either think of something good or know who to ask to come up with something. She's connected. :-)
