What if you went to an ATM machine to get some cash, waited for your receipt, and received a note instead? A note with a message asking for help. Would you call the police or think you are in some kind of a prank TV show?
We are at an age when practical jokes, pranks, and social experiments have become a trend in TV shows and on YouTube. If you have encountered any of it once in your life, you might not believe anything similar to the experience anymore.
Don’t worry. I get that. Been there, done that. I have a lot of friends who I make fun of back in high school. You know to kill boredom in the classroom, especially when the professor is running late.
But I wasn’t a bully, let me just clarify that. It just makes us feel more connected and bond well if we can crack jokes and prank our friends, right?
However, when I entered adulthood, I realized nah. Pranks are no more fun. Maybe I am just too busy with everything life that’s why I don’t appreciate pranks anymore.
Well, jokes are still funny. But pranks? I guess i just don’t have enough time for that.
Not that I am saying I hate pranks, though. I watch prank shows on TV and YouTube and I laugh at them too. But I still imagine what if that happens to me? Would I still be able to laugh at it?
That depends on the situation, maybe. If I was rushing to pick up my kid at school and met someone who ended up pranking me, of course, you know how I’d feel. But if it happens on a lazy Sunday morning, we’ll laugh together, for sure.
However, the problem with us getting used to pranks is as I mentioned above, it’s hard to distinguish what’s real from what’s not. And this is exactly what happened when a Texas ATM repair guy accidentally locked himself inside the machine.
The technician, unfortunately, brought no cell phone or any gadget that would allow him to communicate with his boss. The only person who can free him from the tiny mess he created.
