A young girl went to the ATM to withdraw money in the night. On getting there, she met another guy who was also trying to withdraw money too. It was just the two of them. As she was carrying out her own transaction, she noticed that the guy kept staring at her.
As expected, the girl pretended she didn’t notice the guy’s eyes on her and continued with her transaction. And then suddenly, she heard, give me your phone! What the heck? The girl screamed out of fear. The guy started laughing. I mean hard, belly tightening laughter o. The girl was confused. What was so amusing? Was that some joke or something? Who does that? When the guy finally spoke up, he said, that’s how these small small boys do and collect people’s phones o, sorry I was joking. My name is Bishop what’s yours?
Sometimes, pranks are really cool but it loses it’s touch when the pranker doesn’t know his limits and the prankee isn’t psychological strong enough for it. Some persons do not know, let alone respect boundaries. Unless you’ve established a pranking relationship with someone, stick to just simple jokes please. Sometimes, the way you see it may not be the same way the other person sees it. You may prank a person with high blood pressure only for you to land the person on the hospital bed because, “you were joking”.
One more thing, watch the face and body language of whoever you are pranking. Expressions speak more than a thousand words. Learn to notice when you are making the person uncomfortable. The person may not voice out his/her opinion but please pay attention to nonverbal cues. This will let you know when you go overboard.
And to the prankee, learn to be jovial and carefree. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Be reasonably accessible. Laughter they say, heals. Take one step at a time and live life the best way you can.
Ps: Still wondering about the young girl? Well, she walked back home briskly with shaky legs while pleading the blood of Jesus. She only stopped at her doorstep, where she knew she was safe, to check her balance using her mobile app. She had heard so much about yahoo-yahoo boys and she wasn’t ready to part with her remaining #1500 just yet because that’s all she had for feeding till month end. Do you blame her? With such joke at an ATM booth in the night who wouldn’t be scared?
