As you know by now, hotel employees work LOOOOOONNNNGGGG hours.
With all of that time in the building, we tend to get bored. We are constantly dreaming up elaborate ways to prank our fellow co-workers.
We had a really sweet assistant in our office named Amy. She was so genteel and southern. She lived alone, fresh out of college and off a farm in Lancaster, PA. You know, someone that would NEVER hurt a fly. So….would we leave such a nice individual alone? Nope. Prime victim for a practical joke.
Amy saved and saved and finally bought her first car. A G.eo pr.ism. She was so proud of her little car. Well, we took her car keys while she was at lunch one day and moved her car from it’s parking space to the top floor of the parking garage.
At 6pm, we all waited to make sure we walked out together as we closed up for the day. Poor Amy, we all walked to our cars, started waving…..saying “Goodnight”.
She stood there and looked around. I saw the confusion, then the tears started welling up…..one of my co-workers asked her if everything was okay….
“My car is gone.” she said softly.
We started asking her where did she park it? Is she sure she drove today (LOL)?
Poor Amy looked like she was about to have a nervous breakdown. All she could muster up was “It was right here. I always park it here.”
Finally, just as she was about to call the police, we fessed up and went and got her car……
I know, I know……how could we do that to poor sweet Amy……
But little did we know….Amy was the queen of pranks. We had only unleashed the dragon.
