I came in to work this morning having forgotten that it was April Fools Day. I’ve never been one to celebrate the day, but I do enjoy being on the receiving end of a harmless joke. Today’s was grand.
Some coworkers of mine stole my keyboard and replaced it with another keyboard… that was encased in about 15 lbs. of cherry Jello. It was priceless. Definitely one to remember for future April Fools Days. But that had nothing on the rest of the day.
I lost systems access over the night. As a freelancer, my access has to be reset each time my contract is extended. Last night was one of those extensions, and I thought it had been taken care of. Unfortunately, my manager tore her ACL a few weeks back and has been out, so it got missed. It took exactly 7.5 hours to restore access. My work day consisted of lots of little paper tasks that were really a grand waste of time compared to what I could have been doing.
Still, since my keyboard was encased in 15 lbs. of cherry Jello, it’s not like I could have used my computer anyway.
Happy April Fools Day!
