On Tuesday, I discovered that some revealing photos of me had been seen by others in my office. In these pictures, I’d been caught doing something I shouldn’t have been doing in the boss’ office. I was aware these photos had been taken, but I trusted the pictures would not be shared with others. Now, I’m doing damage control to protect my reputation, while working through the betrayal. Yes, I’m attempting to convince my boss that I was framed and did not act alone in the April Fool’s Day activities.
What? Did you think I had “skin” photos out there? I can’t believe you’d think that about me! I’m the type of girl who wears a knee-length t-shirt over her swim suit and opts for crop pants instead of shorts. Just like permanent eye damage can result from looking directly at the sun, it’s not a good idea to see too much of my super-fair skin. A daring photo of me would look less like a scantily clad model on a Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover, and more like this:
The treason was discovered when I dropped something off on my boss’ desk and noticed his normally solid blue background on his computer screen was colorful. I looked closer and realized that the image was of me standing on his desk with pens and tape dispenser nearby. Yes, evidence had been passed to the other side.
I gasped. Then I stammered, “You do realize those are, uh, doctored photos, right?” Boss just laughed, so I tried a different tack. “Someone had to snap those pictures, right? That person knew what was going on and did nothing to stop it, so they are an accessory to the prank.” Oh yeah, that was a serious accusation, but no way would I take the hit solo!
I pranked in trust and got burned; I got double-crossed by a sneaky rat. I don’t know what I’m going to do about that yet, but one day this person will get an extra helping of payback. It won’t be tomorrow or even next week. No, it will be long after a normal person would have forgotten all about this and moved on 🙂
For those of you who think I am half-past nuts, I won’t try to change your mind (hey, when you’re right, you’re right.) I did want to assure you that this “revenge” plot is all in good fun and there will be no physical damage to any person or property. I cannot make the same promise about psychological injury, though 😉 Game on!
Do you have any clever, sneaky payback ideas? If so, please share…It’ll be our little secret!
