a variant of the sword of Damocles...nothing can be worse than that...so you have raised up a notch on my estimation, pito...two notches actually- that brilliant self-inflicted psychological torture and being bioforum's top Vittorio's Secret model...
Yeah, maybe it was a bit too cruel?
I dont know.. I never had so much fun like those 2 months..
Oh well, my mother used to say that I am capable of selling a bag with a dead cat in as a sack of gold to anyone and that I can play minds like no one else:p
(dont know if thats a good thing or not, sounds kinda psychopathic?)
And you know who suffered the most a few days before 1april? The boss of the lab... He knew that I wanted to know who stole my clothes, but he refused to tell me.. so I played him too..
Nobody dared to "fool" with him... he was a real "big boss" , strict, harsh (but fair). But a lot feared him, dont know why really, but he had this kind of "air" (myth around him) and he was a well respected person wich for some was allready enough to worship him like a god...
They never understood how I dared to call him by his first name and not "professor" (but thats another story).
Anyway, the days before 1april, he locked his desk, each time he left it, he locked it.. He never did this.. but he knew I wanted payback and about 25 days before 1april he heard a rumour I was planning something and since then he always closed his office, even when going to the toilet or just grabbing something in the kitchen.. he always locked it and when he saw me in the hall.. he checked his back every 5 seconds or so:p
And at the end or march (dont remember the exact date, I think it was the 28th, anyway, it was the day after the day I made him even more aware I would get even with him), he entered the lab, went to his desk and everyone could hear him yell: "goddamnit that asshole (being me) did something with my lock"... the entire lab froze and since I wasnt there at the moment, they all feared he would come after them for an explenation.. But a few minutes later they found me and told me to hurry to his desk and be very affright because he was yelling my name .. He stood there still "mad" .. and I asked what was wrong and he looked at me and said: you damn well know whats wrong, you fool.. grmbl...
It turned out he used the wrong key.. and he was so fixed on the idea I did something wrong that he didnt even realise this..
(it had happened before because the keys are very similar, but normally he would just notice it, but that day....build up tension... lol)
Our boss was the laughing stock of the lab for a few days... and then there was 1 april....
(I think my boss kinda liked the idea that I wasnt going to get him since I told him he suffered allready enough with the lock incident and that I would only fool the others, I do remember him being very very friendly at 1 april and joking around , making jokes at the lab etc.. must have been a shock to the others that didnt know him like that).

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some then not ask and stay stupid.
