Situation is Cfoote and I work at the same place and are pretty good buddies. (ok..were..lol)
Today out of the blue he calls from a conference room with two other people. They pitch an idea to me that I should pretend to be a customer of the Internal Audit group that we have here, call their coworker who doesn't know me and complain about the horrible work she did. We try to call w/them on mute conferenced in....darn got voice mail.
About 10-20 minutes later I call this girl and tell her what they are up to... and pitch to her that we should mess with them. I call them back up w/her conferenced in and I go on and on about how upset she was and that I told her I was calling her boss right after I got off the phone with her. I tell them that I never mentioned it was a joke to her. They start freaking out and I mention that she said something about going to the boss. It'* their problem now..I'm out of it.
The girl and I talk for a couple minutes...during which they are trying to call her and email her telling her it'* just a joke. She plays the game and tells them she went to the boss and talked to the boss again after they told her it was a joke. Boss supposedly wants to talk to them when they get back from the assignment.
It took them the better part of 2 hours to figure out they were had. From my standpoint...why play a joke on one ...when you can get 3
Chris...I own you!
