I've been thinking of writing this post as a "Confession Wednesday" for the last few weeks.. but.. well.. I just haven't really had the time. And instead of let my guilt eat away at me any longer,I need to come clean and get something off my chest... with all of you, my beloved readers, who I know would support me rather than scold me for my actions.
Back on the 8th of June, I went to a seminar for work (don't worry, this post has hardly anything to do with the seminar, in fact, if I weren't reassuring you that this post isn't about the seminar, I would have already stopped talking about the seminar.)
I was the only one from my office attending on this particular day, so I went in, found a seat and introduced myself to the guy sitting next to me. We talked again at morning tea, but I didn't see him during lunch.
After lunch, I walked back into the room to find his books gone. He'd obviously left at lunch time. But he had made a critical mistake.
He'd trusted me.
He left his evaluation sheet with my things to hand in at the end of the day. And he'd left his name on it. And his member number. And his email address.
And he hadn't filled in any of the written response questions. And I had four hours of boredom to kill. (And I was a little bit jealous that I didn't think of leaving during the lunch break. Normally the food is worth sticking around for. Not this year)
Anyway, I filled in his evaluation as follows.
What would you like to see more of in next years seminar?
The pink handout. I like pink. Pink is pretty.
What would you like to see less of in next years seminar?
The yellow hand out. I don't like yellow. Yellow scares me. My sister used to make me wear yellow dresses when I was little. Sometimes when I see big bird, I wet my pants just a little bit. I don't like yellow.
Could you recommend any changes to the seminar?
Don't use the Mission Impossible music when we come in from breaks. You're not spies. You're not sexy enough to be spies.
Do you plan on using the CD attached to today's notes when you get back to your office? If not, why not?
No. I won't be using it. I don't believe in computers or Eskimos. The unicorn told me they don't exist.
It felt good to walk out of that room imagining the chaos or confusion I might cause, or at least the laughter from the person reading the evaluation, without knowing for sure whose life I might touch or in what way they might be impacted.
I do like to think they at least emailed him about his responses to their questions.
It's been a long time since I pulled an anonymous prank, and I have to say, I kind of enjoyed it.
I miss that feeling of not knowing what happens next.
Thinking of you always,
