We have spring fever!
Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and we’re ready for one of our favorite days of the season – April Fools. If you know anything about our culture around VoiceNation, you know we like to have some fun. Last Halloween we fought the zombie apocalypse and just about a week ago, we hired our very first alpacas to work in our call center. It’s not possible for us to let April Fool’s Day fall through the cracks.
Some pranks were planned – Isaac’s crime scene, Marie’s Patrick Swayze heaven, Camille’s sticky note attack, and Josh’s space desk. (He also rode his new “space scooter” throughout the halls all day long). We even planned a new “office supply flavored”Jello where we encased some of our coworkers staplers and scissors in deliciously flavored jelly snacks. But April Fool’s had a few plans of it’s own that we weren’t anticipating – like Eric having his bike kidnapped.
We’ve mentioned before that Eric is our fitness guru and his exercise of choice is definitely mountain biking. It’s not uncommon to drive in to work to find a bike hooked to the back of his car for an after hours ride. So when that bike was replaced with Josh’s tin foil covered scooter with no trace of where it went, I think it’s safe to say that Eric had a little meltdown … until he saw the ransom note. Once the trade was made – scooter for bike- all was right with the world again.
We have a team of very even-tempered people, so they were good sports- but what about you? Have you ever pulled a great April Fool’s Day prank or had one pulled on you? Have you ever had any pranks gone terribly wrong? Tell us your story!
