Jean in Newcastle Posted July 24, 2012 Share Posted July 24, 2012 Ds just got back from summer camp where he was the recipient of some pranks while he slept. They were not harmful but upset him because they were done while he was asleep and then he felt like he had to try and stay awake all night to avoid more. I haven't said a word to him but hearing about it gave me very bad flashbacks to boarding school where pranks were not kind at all. For the longest time I had a bad time on my birthday where the tradition would be to toss the birthday girl into an ice cold bath. I remember one traumatized girl hiding and sleeping in her closet at night so that people couldn't get at her. I figured out how to "lock" my door by strategically opening draws and placing a chair so that the door couldn't be opened and I could sleep without harassment. But anyway, I know that my experience colors my thoughts of relatively innocent things like shortsheeting a bed or putting shaving cream on the face. I'm sort of guessing that most of you don't have the bad experiences I had, so I'm wondering what your reaction is to pranks? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
