An Incident of Workplace Trickery: April Fool's

United States
April 1, 2016 8:25am CST
Someone in my office generously set out a box of donuts for coworkers to share. When said coworkers opened the brightly colored bakery box...they discovered a veggie tray instead!

@DaintyD I'd say their moms wouldn't be proud to see such a lack of enthusiasm for veggies.

That would probably be the best way to make sure you actually get donuts.

It was both--but mostly funny. It gave everyone something to chatter about too.

Everyone laughed at the switch, but by the end of the day, the veggies were all gone!

Not that was one very clever April Fool's Day trick. I am sure all were so disappointed. You have the prettiest first and last name Chole!

It was clever. The good news is that this is the day that most our staff goes to breakfast anyway, so nobody was starving, at least. And thank you. I don't hear a lot of compliments on my name. I'll be sure and tell my mom, since she named me.

Vegan donuts? Any office mate with obesity problems?

Haha. They were just plain old carrot and celery sticks. They were fresh and crisp, though. No obesity problems here--just maturity problems.

That wouldn't work on me as I do not eat donuts these days. What were the veggies? I do like a stick of celery or a carrot baton or two. Yum!
