My brother, IT Guy, and I work for the same company. Mercifully, we don’t have much interaction. When we do, we make a point of trying to wind each other up. Sometimes tempers flare, but most of the time we just crack ourselves up trying to annoy each other.
Some paperwork that he was responsible for returning to my department got lost this week. We both looked and followed every trail we could, but could not find it.
This happens, but I still couldn’t resist giving him his own special in-box in my department.
|This was previously our “Plans for World Domination” in-box, but we were disappointed in the submissions.|
|You know how I know my brother is gay? Pink Post-its.|
The paperwork turned up this morning, on his desk, with a note from a pretty co-worker. Turns out she had grabbed them off his desk by mistake a few days ago. He sent us the above picture, via email, to let us know they were found. And he promised to return them ASAP. Now she is way too cute to get frustrated with, so we kept the heat on IT guy, and held him to his promise to return them this morning.
|Hot guys: I would never actually do this.
I just did it for my blog fans.
By 1pm, he had not returned them, so my co-workers & I journeyed through the heat and humidity (by car) to his office, 200 yards from ours. (I like to call where we work a “campus”, just to make it sound more interesting. It hasn’t caught on.) He was out to lunch with most of his department. We are related, so I wasn’t shocked that food took priority over the paperwork.
Our plan for revenge was formed. We’d eat his department’s last sticky bun from Seven Stars (they get them every Friday), and steal some items from his desk to hold as ransom. I was too busy scraping the pastry box clean of any caramelized pecan pieces into my mouth to notice that the invoices were actually on his desk, in plain view. Maybe I got some pecan bits in my eyes or something.
From his desk we took an award he recently won, along with his precious cactus. Then we sent our ransom note via email.
The subject line read:
And it included the following two pictures:
I’d like the thank the academy,
sweet baby jesus,
and my seventeen cats.
I love it. Thank you Chris! I don’t care what
Louise says, you’re the wicked nicest guy ever!
|I ALMOST fell for it.|
