So on Saturday morning I made quite the impression on my work colleagues. I fell hook, line and sinker for the traditional company April fool, and advertised the fact with an email to the entire team. Worse? I didn’t even realise until a customer pointed out the joke to me whilst a manager looked on snickering.
Me: 0 – April: 1
Half an hour later I mis-read the rota and almost caused chaos trying to move staff members around when I didn’t need to. Fortunately I caught myself just before the snafu was made completely public…..only one of the directors and the same manager mocking me this time.
Me: 0 – April: 2
Then, the crowning moment; tasting through a new potential range of wines I gestured mid-swirl and threw the entire contents of the glass on the floor narrowly missing the others.
Me: 0 – April: 3.
After today I have a few days off. I’m going to hide at home, avoid sharp objects and hope I can get through the rest of the week unscathed. How’s your April started? Please tell me others fell for the Fools and I’m not alone!
