This is an old and really corny one, but it works for me every time I try it. I tell my boss or a co-worker they had a very urgent message from a Mr. Lyon, and I give them the number to the nearest zoo.

You could use a message slip with a please call” Pete Mosse” and give the number of a local plant nursery!

Scamp I’m most definitely going to use that on my choral director tomorrow. Thanks!

Let me know how it turns out!

@scamp – I think I’m going to use yours on my mom, but I’m not sure whether it’ll work. We’ll see :)

@mac316 – I don’t get the “Pete” part (I’m not a native speaker…).

I“m going to hack fluther and have it re-direct you to…..j/k…..

@hairypalm – if I didn’t trust the Fluther guys so much I’d be avoiding it tomorrow :P

@Vincentt it’s a play on words. Pete is pronounced the same as peat, as in peat moss.

Vincentt's avatar

Thanks scamp, I guess I pronounced it right but just didn’t know what peat was. Unfortunately, that one’s a bit difficult to reproduce in Dutch ;-)

I’m gonna call in sick 2 minutes before I’m supposed to be there and then show up. Then I’m going to be taking all these phone messages…
Great ideas!!! Thanks!!!

Vincentt's avatar

@scamp – I had already looked up the Wikipedia on peat and looked at the link to the Dutch article to find out its meaning ;)

I just pulled this one with my sister:
Kinda geeky but funny too :)

I just rick-roll’d my coworkers with a fake news release into thinking the company is being taken over by a competitor.
