Part 2

Caution:  Sensitive materials.  This is supplementary material to our Quick list for March 30.

 One year, I sent a memo to the staff saying I was resigning from the team.  I thought surely they would realize it was a joke.  But…they fell for it.

The following year, our regularly scheduled staff meeting fell on April 1.  Soon after we got the meeting under way, a police officer walked in.  He asked for Jan Watts, my name at the time.   He then read me my rights and handcuffed me.

Then just as the music started, he took off his hat and put it on my head.

Oh my goodness. 

You will see the final result in the photo below.

You’ll also see that we’ve done a bit of “cover up” using some the notes written by colleagues.

They had waited an entire year for pay back time! 

And they got it. 

Good for them!

Another note came 6 days later from our landlord. 

Here it is.

TO:  Jan Watts

FROM:  Mr. White

SUBJECT:  Strippers in the Building

It has come to my attention that strippers conducting lewd and lascivious acts were observed in the confines of this building.  I simply wanted to let you know that this is not company policy and further, if such actions take place in the future everyone should be notified so that everyone can witness such acts.


By the way – Mr. White was absolutely the best landlord. He cared so much about us and for us.
And as you can tell, had an excellent sense of humor. I believe he was in his mid to late 60’s when he wrote this memo.

One more thing- it just it me…we never finished that staff meeting.  I’d better go round everybody up!
