Practical Jokes, Part II

It would seem that me leaving my email account open (see previous post) has caused my labmates to recount the various stories of the practical jokes played on people when they leave their email accounts open. Sort of like stories around the campfire.

One that gives me the giggles is the following:

A project scientist left his email account open. This particular person was into the various lotteries found on the net at the time. So, this other labmate of ours went into his account and emailed him from the account left open saying that he will win $100,000 if he replies back to the email within 30 minutes of opening.

Well, of course he replied, but it would come back to him because it was from his own account. Apparently, he worked himself into a frenzy trying to reply to this email within the 30 minute time frame. Since he had worked himself into a frenzy, he did not realize that this was originally coming from his own account.

Eventually he figured it out.

That is funny. He was probably already thinking about how he was going to spend the money. Poor guy.
