April Fool’s Day is probably the most loved of all days out of the year next to Christmas and Thanksgiving. It is also one of the most despised. People – who remember when it comes around – will use this day as an excuse to play the craziest practical jokes on family, friends, and even co-workers. Learn some great ways to avoid being one of the victims.
Look For It
The best way to avoid getting caught in someone’s prank is to look out for it. You need to be on your guard all day long. Pull out your calendar and circle it in red or put a reminder in your phone. Most of us get caught because we forget what it means when it comes around.
Be cautious and careful with anything that someone tells you or tells you to do. For good measures you should check the food that your wife made you or the seat at your office each time you go to sit down. If you hear bad news make sure that you take it in stride and get total confirmation before you believe it.
If you really hate the holiday than the best thing you can do is to get away. Go take a trip for the day and cut off all communication with people. They can’t get you if they can’t find you! You can go out of town or stay at home and not answer your phone or door.
If you can’t beat them than why not join them? Rather than wait to be the victim of a prank why not conspire with some friends and come up with your own funny joke. Just make sure that you do it on someone with a sense of humor. Otherwise you might end up by really angering people.
