A friend mine just ran up to my desk and told me someone stole the upper parts of my half doors, side windows and back window off my jeep.
I know full well those parts are safely at home in the closet. Me being me, I figured what the heck let's play this up. So I jumped up and ran outside and starting fussing and what not, pretending to call my insurance company the whole 9 yards. Well one of the ladies who saw me pull in this morning with top down comes up and is like, "Umm Patrick... You came to work this morning with your top down." My co-worker shot me in the foot.
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. My friend is so ticked at me right now.
Figured I would share. So what all pranks have you jokers pulled today?

Luckily this didn't happen to me, but a co-worker. He went up to management and handed them a 2 weeks notice. Towards the end of the day, he went back to the same manager and told him that he was joking for April Fool's day. It went something like this:
Adam: Ha! I got you guys, that 2 weeks notice was a joke for April fool's day.
Manager: Based on your most recent performance, We've decided that we are going to accept your resignation anyways.
Adam: (shock), and returns to his desk in disbelief, probably trying to figure out how he's going to tell his wife his joke back fired.
An hour later, the same manager walks up to him and says, "April Fools. You can stay, but I bet that'll be the last joke you play on management."
I learned 3 things here.
1) If you are going to joke about a resignation, make sure you are in good standing with the company.
2) Don't give management 6 hours to decide the response, knowing that it's April fool's day.
3) If you are going to turn in a resignation, you'd better have thought it all through.
I told my wife that my deployment had been extended another month...she just about reached through the phone and snapped my neck when I said "April fools!" BTW...Her name is April so she hates this day more than most women...
April 1st was my first day of basic training, twelve years ago. The MTI's made no jokes that day. I played no jokes today but my coworkers and I are constantly fu**ing with each other so it wouldn't have been anything new anyways.

Did this a few years ago in work. I work in recycling collections, we also have a sorting and baling section. at 5 am one of my supervisors called the boss in charge of processing and told him a fire broke out in the processing section and he had to get here pronto to coordinate with the fire chief. That boss raced up I-295 north, breaking all speed limits along the way, only to find out we had pranked him. He normally doesn't come in till 8 am.
