Hi Masshole Mommy readers! Chris here again with the followup from my practical jokes in the fire department guest blog last week.

If you read my last post, you are already familiar with some of the practical jokes that I played on other people. Today I will tell you some of the jokes that were played on me for payback.

Remember the guy with the nicotine patches?  That guy payed me back by taking my bicycle completely apart.  Every single screw and nut was left in a pile at the bike rack for me.  I am pretty sure some parts are still missing, but it still works.

I also have had the superman symbol spray painted on my chest.  It took 11 guys to hold me down, but they did it.

One time when I just gotten off of a 24 hour shift, I found my room completely rearranged.  That one was mostly my fault, though.  When a buddy of mine asked for the keys to my room because he asked to borrow my Britney Spears CD, I should had known something was fishy.

Also I had gallons of water dropped on me from the fire department roof.  I realize it doesn’t sound bad, but it was in South Dakota and it was 2 degrees at the time.

Another good was was when I had my front door covered in saran wrap and then when I went to run through it, I came to find out that it was covered in Vaseline.

Now all this was in good fun and most of the time it was done in revenge for practical jokes I played on other people first.   Be sure to look for my next guest blog where I will tell you about all the jokes we played on Probies (brand new firefighters).  You wouldn’t believe some of the stuff these guys fall for.
