04/01/10 65 W - + 10 - 8 April Fools

Discussion topic for the day. Today is April Fools Day. Though tempting to discuss pranks and amusements therein-- but not hazing, please not hazing!-- let's talk about levity. How have you used humor to break the ice, dispel the stress, and keep a barrier from the profession's harder and harsher aspects? Or, if you prefer, share appropriately funny stories. What say you?

Ha Ha Ha

We had a new Chief in training at the recruit academy on April Fools 2008.

His joke to the recruits who were in formation was that with budget cuts, two recruits would loose their jobs to save the City Money. He advised us to vote on who it would be and let him know at the end of the day.

We were so stressed with the academy that we forgot it was April 1st!

ha ha ha ha ha

What a mess. Luckily our Class Leader was such exceptional character, he offered to quit before voting for any of us! B M, Ill always respect you for that!
