    ...because I just got a call from someone in Staff Affairs saying I'd won an annual outstanding employee award and a bunch of money. Now I don't know whether to believe it or not. icon_cry.gif

    I say go with it and if it turns out to be a joke, laugh along and say "ya got me".

    Being able to graciously be the butt of a joke is a good quality.

    Don't hate... masturbate. Congrats! icon_cool.gif

    It's not as bad as getting a call from my OB-GYNE this morning telling me that the results were positive... only to be retracted as it belonged to another patient with the same surname and first name initials as mine! icon_mad.gif


    TAPPER WOULD HAVE BEEN SO PLEASED!

    April Fool's jokes can be very cruel.
    I think that everybody gets a big thrill out of winning something.
    But, if it's just an April Fool's joke, what a let down.
    If I were you, I would get on with my work and try to forget about the award.
    If it's a joke, you will have ruined it for the joke-ster.
    If it's true, you'll see the award sooner or later.

    I´d be hugely grateful and excited etc, and then if it turned out that they were making it up I´d pretend to be really hurt and make them look like a real jerk in front of everyone else. But I don´t like practical "jokes".
