Default 0 to 200 in 4 Seconds

A couple had been debating the purchase of a new auto for weeks.
He wanted a new truck. She wanted a fast little sports-like car so she
could zip through traffic around town.

He would probably have settled on any beat up old truck, but everything she seemed
to like was way out of their price range.

"Look !" she said. I want something that goes from 0 to 200 in 4 seconds or less.
"And my birthday is coming up. You could surprise me."

For her birthday, he bought her a brand new bathroom scale.

' Services will be at Downing funeral home on Monday the 12th, due to the condition of
the body, this will be a closed casket service. Please send your donations to the 'Think
before you say things to your wife foundation', Dallas, Texas.

Default CFoote gets burned

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!
