    My typically quiet, innocent and unassuming boyfriend pulled the whole 'I'm leaving you for someone else' prank and I fell for it. He even pulled it a day early so I wouldn't suspect.

    Today's topic on RJ about a member did it for us. Gads.

    In the end we laughed, but there were hair raising moments in our house before we found out it was a prank. Whew! Thankfully Apr fools is only til noon.

    Years ago a friend was able to put an eviction notice on my apartment door.
    I found it when I returned home from work and spent the entire night freaking out.

    I don't like cruel pranks. I enjoy practical jokes (my late father was a master), but making someone seriously upset like that is not good, nor funny.

    It’s all good.
    He wasn’t too happy when I had his car towed a day later—advantages of triple A.

    How curious, I never knew that! My favorites are the ones BBC TV does in the UK on 1st April, usually in the form of fake documentaries, kinda like the things the Onion does now on the Internet.

    Two of my favorites are the legendary Spaghetti Harvest, done in the 1950s, and the Flying Penguins, narrated by Monty Python alum Terry Jones, delivering it in the manner of naturalist Sir Michael Attenborough.

    An older family member told me and my younger sister that my was putting her and myself in foster care b/c didn't want to take care of us any longer.

    This was on the heals of our loosing our parents and our three older siblings we shipped down south to live with our maternal grand parents.

    We were hysterical and aunt came running in the room very confused wanting to know what was going on and why we were so distraught.
    When we explained what was said it took her four hours to convince us that it was not true and that it was a cruel prank being playyed on us.

    This family had gotten boxes and our luggage out. My aunt beat the crap out of that family member. I never liked her since and to this day I hate pranks. I don't pull them and I most def. won't be a party to one. I always like the person know.

    My sister and I were 7 and 8 years old at the time.

    My brother and I fell for this more than once when we were little.....

    My dad would wake us up early on April 1st morning excitedly yelling that there was an elephant in the back yard.

    One of my mates did something to me once, that I felt needed a reply. So I dove around the bush looking for a road kill, and found a dead blotted festering in maggots wombat. He went to go to work one morning to find it sitting in the drivers seat of his new car, made him gag for weeks, and me smile still many years latter.
