The longer I live, the more I’m convinced that only a small percentage of the population actually enjoys playing pranks. The rest of us are long-suffering, either smiling along and semi-appreciating the humor or wishing they would cease and desist immediately.

This guy used to hide in the pharmacy counter at his work to give people a nice jump-scare, and most of the time, everyone had a good laugh and moved on with their shift – at least, they did until the day when his CEO showed up while he was hidden.

He heard people talking to someone who was clearly important, and he knew he was stuck – no way to get out without being seen, and no way to make it look like a normal thing.

No one guessed where he was – at least they said they didn’t know – and time began passing slower and slower as they waited for him to appear.

His legs were going numb.

They were calling for him on the intercom – but he was invested. There was no turning back.

One guy saw him, finally, but didn’t rat him out.

The CEO left…or so he thought.

At least he thought stupid was funny?

I mean, it could have been a lot worse.

He’s lucky he didn’t get fired, although I mean, what would the reason have been? Sheer stupidity? Not knowing when to give up the ghost? Nearly permanently damaging his nerve endings?

People, let this be a lesson to you – just because something is funny once or twice doesn’t mean it’s never going to come back to bite you in the butt.

There’s a little thing like karma, and as this story illustrates perfectly, she has a sense of humor.
