As much fun as it would be to constantly write about old college experiences, I’ve decided to keep them to a minimum. I’m going to stick to one a month, so here is a nostalgia dripping story for September.
Once upon a time I got pranked, and deserved it.
At the end of the spring semester, a buddy of mine (John) had come over to my apt to hang out. After a while, he remembered an email that needed replying and asked to use my computer. What he didn’t know and what I found out later, is that he accidentally saved his email password. I had full and complete access to his email!
My reaction to the discovery:
I thought for a while on how best to use my new power, and then it hit me. I’ll send myself an email using John’s Email account. I concocted the email below:
Moses you F*cking asshole, if I ever see you again I’ll beat your head in with a baseball bat. You’re a piece of shit and worthless human being. If you were on fire I wouldn’t spit on you.
If you see me on campus… WALK THE OTHER F*CKING WAY.
I waited a few hours and sent my response.
DUDE! WTF?! What did I do? What is going on? Talk to me!
After hitting send I went to bed. The next morning I had completely forgotten about the email and was on campus. I ran into John who immediately went into apology mode.
“Moses! Dude I am so sorry! I must have been so drunk last night, I have no idea why I sent you that email, are we still friends?” I remembered the email and started laughing and laughing uncontrollably. John couldn’t figure out why it was so funny, so I spilled the beans on everything. John was so mad, and devised a plan of revenge.
After summer and sometime during early September, I was shocked one morning because I had gotten a weird email.
Hey Theatreguy123, I saw your profile online and thought, “hey this guy looks cute.” So if you’d like to hang out and talk about theater I’m available. My number is ###-###-####.

WTF WTF WTF!? WHY DO I HAVE A GAYMATCH.COM PROFILE!???!
I clicked on the link and checked out my profile, after reading the contents it became very clear who was behind my profile.
My reaction to this prank:
I confronted John who started laughing hysterically.
The kicker to all of this?
He created that profile right after the initial email incident. Apparently my profile had been up for 3 months, WITHOUT A SINGLE GAY GUY WANTING TO TALK TO ME.
I think my self esteem took a hit after that one. I mean come on! I know I’m NOT A MALE MODEL or gay, BUT GOSH! 3 MONTHS!?
