3. And Fake Ones!
In the 90s I was on the overnight crew of a large store. I was stocking some shelves and found a damaged bag of balloons which would need to be turned back in to the supplier for a credit. There was balloons of every color include one long, slender, black balloon. It got my attention because it seemed out of place in the colorful bag of rainbow colors and short round festive bubbles if joy. My inner villain began to form a master plan. I snickered as I tucked the odd balloon in my shirt pocket. I coolly began to ask my coworkers if they knew anything about a snake being spotted in the warehouse. In reality we had a mouse problem and when there’s mice the snakes will follow. There was lots of denial and calls of B.S. but soon I heard people asking each other and I knew my trap was set. Everyone was in the break room for lunch when I blew up the balloon and knelt down outside of the door. Feigning panic I screamed “I told you that there’s a snake in the store!” and released the jet powered rubber torpedo into the room. I was rewarded with the chaos that I sought to induce as soda bottles and plastic forks filled the air. One person was even setting in a chair climbing up an invisible tree. One person who was the oldest and wise was not fooled however. It’s said that youthful vigor can never overcome experience and treachery and that is the truth. She didn’t panic at all. Without missing a beat (no pun intended) she faked a heart attack! She won final victory in the prank war to say the least. 😂
