Just a quick story this.
Tim and I got back to my house after a particularly gruelling bike ride. We were both hot and tired. Off I went to get us both a cold drink.
As I was looking for something refreshing I found a bottle of vodka, but not just the normal stuff, this was the strong stuff. I couldn't resist temptation so poured myself a half pint glass of water and poured Tim a half pint glass of vodka!
I walked back to the lounge where Tim was sitting and handed him the glass full of vodka while I took a long drink from the glass of water.
Without hesitation Tim put the glass to his lips and drank about half of the vodka straight down before he realised that he wasn't drinking water. His faced turned a little red and after a pause and a few chokes he soon knew!
For some reason Tim acted a little strangely the rest of the afternoon!
When we were in the sixth form at school we had our own fridge and coffee machines. Everyone in the sixth form had to share the facilities.
I used to take sandwiches and snacks to school and store them in the fridge but quite often they would be eaten by other people.
So we started to put our food in individual lunch boxes with our names on. Still our food was being taken.
We were pretty sure that we knew who was eating our food but being a devious type I decided that rather then confront that person I would get my revenge another way.
One evening Tim and I baked a nice chocolate cake. We spent a lot of time on it, covering it with butter creme icing etc. To decorate the cake we used chocolate. BUT not just any old chocolate, we used LAXATIVE chocolate!!
The next day we placed out cake in the fridge with a note saying 'This is Matt's Cake' and we left it there while we went to our first lesson. When we returned about half of the cake had been eaten!
It was quite simple to find out who the culrpit was - he was the one that spent the rest of the day in the toilet!
The moral of the story - NEVER steal food from Matt!
Tim and I went to a local 'night club' one Thursday night. This was quite a long time ago, before we met our current partners!
We went with a group of other people and ended up getting separated at one point. I was off getting a drink and thought I should find out where Tim had dissapeared. I got back to the dance floor area to find Tim dancing away with two pretty good looking young ladies. Upon seeing me Tim waves me over.
So over I go strutting some of my best moves. The ladies seem fairly interested which was a bit of a result. As a particular song finished and another one began one of the ladies asked me if I knew how to Salsa!?
The only answer my slightly (Read Totally) drunken brain could come up with was 'Salsa? Don't you dip tortillas in that?'.
The two young girls quickly disappeared and we didnt see them again!! I didn't tell Tim what I had said to them for a few days, probably because I couldn't remember!
During another of our favourite science lessons we were performing experiments where we were burning various things to heat water in order to calculate the calorific value of them.
Burning peanuts created rather a lot of soot on the bottom of the copper can that contained all the water. We managed to get the soot all over our hands.
One of our 'friends' thought it would be funny to smear the soot from his hands all over Tim. Looking back, it was pretty funny but at the time Tim looked like he was the victim of a house fire or else had been working in a coal mine.
Our teacher did not see the funny side. We were asked who had done that to poor old Tim. The answer from our 'friend' was "Matt Did!". As I raised my hands to protest my innocence all the teacher could see was soot all over my fingers. I don't suppose I could blame him for sending me out of the room (AGAIN!).
Don't get mad, get even. More to follow.
This is a prank that I played on a friend of mine, I don't think it was Tim (Tim?) but I can't recall who it was.
I bought some electrical hardware from a local shop. I think it was Curry's. When I paid for the item and left the shop the alarm sounded as I passed the security barrier things. The cashier hadn't deactivated the security sticker on the box that I'd just bought. Rather than deactivate the tag, the store manager just waved me on.
I was at home unpacking my new toy when it occurred to me that I had an active security sticker in my possession. There had to be something I could use it for...
It finally came to me when my friend came round to my house. He took off his shoes before he came in. When he was elsewhere in the house I got the security sticker and lifted the inner sole of his shoe and stuck it underneath and put the innersole back, no evidence of tampering.
What he then had was a shoe that would set off security systems as he entered or left a shop.
Later that day the friend and I went to the local shopping centre. It was very difficult to keep a straight face as every time we entered or left a shop the alarms went off! Even more ammusing was the fact that we entered and left all the shops empty handed. Neither my friend nor the shop security could understand it!!
Apparently this happened for weeks, it was quite some time before the tag stopped working.
I did eventually tell him what I'd done. He saw the funny side in the end!
