It’s A Good Prank, Make No Bones About It

I was 15, working my first job in a clothes shop. A coworker and I got high before a shift. It was just after Halloween and there were a few discounted costumes left.

One was a kids’ skeleton costume. My coworker dared me to try it on. While I was in the changing room, my mum, who was an assistant manager, took my clothes and hid them.

I spent half an hour looking for them before it got really busy and I had to spend the rest of my shift in a skeleton costume that didn’t fit.

“It” Wasn’t Funny The First Time

(“It” has been playing for the past week. One day, I get a call at the box office.)

Me: “Hi, thanks for calling [Theater]. How can I help you?”

Caller: *giggling* “Yeah, um… Do you have ‘It’?”

Me: “Yes, we do. Our next show-times are at noon, 3:00 pm, and 7:30 pm.”

Caller: *pause; annoyed* “You were supposed to ask me what ‘It’ was! It was a joke! I wanted to confuse you!”

Me: “Oh, I know. It’s just that we’ve gotten that exact same prank call about ten times a day for the past week and I’m trying not to waste time on them.”

Caller: *click*
