A few weeks ago at work, I was sitting at my desk, talking to three of my coworkers. The phone rang, but before I could answer it, the person hung up. It happens. I returned to the conversation already in progress, but the phone rang again and the same thing happened. This went on several times, and I was getting frustrated.
I glanced over at my friend, R, who was giving me a signal with her eyes that our friend M was the culprit. I looked at M and snapped, “Is that you??” Everyone laughed and M said, “I was wondering when you’d catch on!” He had been dialing my number the whole time while he was standing at my desk, but he was hiding the phone where I couldn’t see it. My friend R said, “I wasn’t going to say anything, but I started to see the fire in your eyes.” :D Then our friend J said he was getting mad too, because he thought something was wrong with the phone and he’d have to fix it.
Anyway, if you want to irritate your coworkers, try pulling that nifty little prank on them and wait for their reactions. Some might not laugh, though. You’ve been warned.
