Well... today I was going to write a blog about the atmosphere of Elliquiy, but it's April Fool's Day so I will save that for tomorrow. So instead... Gullibility! Something close to my heart...
Yesterday when I arrived at work I noticed a message written on our whiteboard. This message read:
"As of 04/01/09 the dress code will change to Khaki pants and polo shirts or business attire. Infractions will be sent home."
The first thing I said to my coworker was, "I don't own either of those. I guess I have to go shopping." I didn't get why he snickered. I even asked "Aren't polo shirts expensive?" And he started laughing and said they were fairly expensive.
Later my boss arrived, and he called me into his office (I assume co-worker spoke with him) and said, "You don't own any business attire?" To which I responded, "The dress code used to let people go to work in their pajamas and I'm not interviewing until I graduate, why would I?" He promptly asked me to go examine the date on the notice....... "Oh." I wonder how badly I was blushing when I went back to my computer.
I could not figure out what was going on, though I assumed it was some kind of prank. Then I realized.... April Fool's.. oh right. Okay, world is sane.
Not 30 minutes later First half. Second half.
I'm reading that going, what the heck? Who would want something with such rude / naive responses? What a way to get royally screwed.... yes.. I got through all of the chat samples before it dawned on me... April Fool's Day....
Ah Gullibility, good bed partner of mine. How fun it is to live my life believing most things people say to me. Sure, I second guess them, but.. well, let's look at a non-April Fool's Day occurrence...
My friends and I are gathered round the kitchen table, washable DnD grid map spread out before us. We are encountering many spider webs in the midst of jungle. One of my friends says, "Damn those spider monkeys and their web-spinning antics."
I actually respond, "Spider monkeys spin webs? Wait.." I felt like dying. Everyone else had a lovely laugh, myself, my face burned for many hours from that one. I later managed to pull the same sort of prank on someone else, and felt better, but...
Wow. I'm so darn gullible. I honestly don't think I know anyone more gullible than me. With that in mind, I'll be wary for a bit after posting this blog. =p
Hope you guys enjoy a good laugh at it. ^^
