OK, In honor of April Fools Day (Today) and if we posted anything silly the thread would get moved...I found a way to ask a real question about it so it wont get moved. An actual discussion on April Fools.
Anyway so share with us a good April Fools story...Ill give you one of my gems!
About 10 years ago my best friend was in college in a town about 90 miles away so I decided to get him because I hadnt gotten him the previous year. Well I was the one who helped him install his car stereo and car alarm so me and another friend drove up there in a car he had never seen before. I knew he would be busy in the mid morning and I would have about 2 hours before he would go to drive again...so since I had an extra key I got in and put another transmitter onto his car alarm...one that I had the remote too, and one that would go off when the car was running.
So we waited and we he got out....we tested it from about 4 car lengths away, and it worked....scared the S**T out of him. Well he tryed to turn it off but his remote didnt work...but we cut it off after about 20 seconds and assumed he would think his batteries were getting low..so he got in and drove off. Now we followed him and at the 1st stoplight...we turned the alarm on again. HE JUMPED OUT OF HIS SEAT..we could see his head only being 2 cars behind him. And we left it on as he started driving. He pulled into a parking lot....and we followed on the other side and cut it off. He got out looked at connections lifted the hood....and got back in and drove off.
About another mile down the road I turned on the alarm again.
Again he pulled into a fast food place, and we shut it off. He used his cell to call mine (I was parked across the street) and he told me about the "freaky sh*t going on with his alarm" I told him maybe something got loose and when he pulled in the bump re aligned it. He was satisifed with that response so he got back in and drove. We waited about 5 minutes, before he got back home (we were about 2 miles away) and I turned it on....AGAIN!
This time he didnt stop...so we left it going until he got home. As soon as he stopped I cut it off. He called me again frustrated and telling me he would disconnect the fuse. I told him go for it and I would fix it later that day as I would come down after work.
Now he did that, but of course he didnt know that his system was disabled and a new fuse was running the one I did while he didnt know. So he did closed the hood and started to walk away. He almost got to the door...and I did it again. He turned around and was beside himself on how the alarm was still working. He ran back to the car...screaming at it...cursing (I was only across the street but I could hear him...I was hidden behind a tree) and kicking the car. He threw open the hood and disconnected the entire battery and called me again. I told him to check everything. I went down the install list, told him to check in the glovebox, his transmission fluid..(he wondered why but was so frustrated he did whatever I asked.) Finally I told him to check the gas tank....he did.
There was a note...I saw him take the paper and open it....he read it...then threw it down and started yelling...."Where are you, you bastard...I cant believe this...you FUC**R, alright you got me....you win."
On the note said simply...
"THE CAR OF AN APRIL FOOL IS MIGHTY DAMN LOUD WOULDNYT YA SAY"
I walked across the street, he was sitting in the car just shaking his head with a smile on it.....he admitted I got him good and one day he would repay me. I fixed it and told him what I did...and we made plans to get another friend of ours later that night with an elaborate prank.
Perhaps Ill tell that one later.
