Talking with a college buddy last night and the subject came up of pranks that we played on each other. I'm not a big prank guy, but back in college I pulled a couple that were priceless. This will be lengthy.
Back in the day when I was in college you could get tons of free "samples" of ED meds as well as samples of hair regrowth stuff like Rogain pretty easily. Well, I had a close friend in college named Brad whose hair line looked like it was beginning to recede. So, I decided that I would start stocking up in bulk as much of it as I possibly could.
When ever Brad had a new girl friend I would slip a few wrappers and boxes of the ED meds and Rogain into the trash in his bathroom or just leave them out in an obvious place long enough that a girl would see it all with the hope of her confronting him about. I always was able to get rid of the evidence before he ever saw it so when he would tell me about the questions he would get after I pulled this small prank it was hard to keep a straight face.
The typical conversation would go like this "What the **** is happening? Tiffany asked me the other day if I was aging prematurely. I know my hair line looks like it's receding, but look at my pictures from 8th grade it looks the same!" or "She just asked me if I had problems keeping a wood. She just said she understood that it happens to a lot of guys and I shouldn't be worry about it if I do. What the **** is that about? We haven't even ****ed around yet. Do I look that old or something?"
The complete pay off was when Brad got engaged and married. They never lived together so I was able to continue periodically putting the wrappers in the trash and what not. Then he came down with the flu really bad about a month before they got married and she was out of town. This was my chance to go all out! I knew he would be down and out and she would be on her way back in a few hours. So I went over to his apartment and told him that I needed to use the bathroom. He lived close to campus and I lived all the way across town so it made since to him that I would stop in every once and a while to do so. I went to the bathroom and began stacking the samples in his medicine cabinet. I knew that when she got back to town she would stop in and check on him. I was long gone before she got there, but just as I had hoped she got into the cabinet to get him some meds. When she opened the medicine cabinet she saw stacks and stacks and stacks of ED meds and Rogain. She was too embarrassed to say anything to him about it. So she got him the meds and went about her business.
About a week later bulk shipped another batch of ED meds with his name on them to her house (which is where they were going to live once they tied the knot.) Again, she was too embarrassed to say anything.
Moving day comes and me and a couple of buddies are moving Brad into her place and I bring a couple of extra boxes for him. As we are moving stuff one of my buddies (Mike) starts putting things in the bathroom and he notices the ED samples that I had bulked shipped a week or so prior. This guy is basically my group of friends equivalent to Stiffler so you can imagine what's about to happen. As Mike unpacks the "extra" boxes that I had brought he starts laughing hysterically. Mike grabs a couple of boxes and comes out of the bathroom and yells out "Hey Brad can I have a couple these? I think it would help me last longer when I'm ****ing your sister!" Brad doesn't know what to say when he realizes what Mike is holding up. Brad finally says "Where did you get that?" Mike tells him that it was in the bathroom. To keep the prank going just a little longer I immediately chime in. "Does she think you can't keep up on the wedding night?" Mike says "Dude, there's enough in there to last years!" Then in walks his finance' Brad immediately asks her where she got it and why she had it. She starts telling him that it was his and that she didn't order it and she had been seeing it at his apartment forever.
So the jig is now up and it's time for me to come clean. With all the planning and effort that went into the prank it was completely worth it at the end.
