    Pranks you've played on your spouse

    So we still haven't caught our skunk yet. It's pretty much hunkered down under our shed. So tonight, in the dark, we went out to bait the trap again. We were out there with only a flashlight, and of course I said I saw some 'movement' on the side of the shed. After baiting the trap, we headed to the backdoor ... my wife playing it cool. I had placed a life-like skunk dog toy on the porch right after we left the house to go bait the trap. When we turned the corner, she let out a yelp and backed up a bit. She's a pretty calm person about these things normally, so it was great to get a reaction Anyhow, that was my fun for the night

    Anyone else have a good spouse/prank story?

    That is priceless---and horrifying!

    Probably the worst I ever did was unintentional. We used to live in SoCal where there are schools with big, grassy fields. One night, about dark, we were cutting across one of these big playfields and we heard this strange, rumbling sound. Anybody that lives in Cali for long knows what an earthquake sounds like---but nope, the sound wasn't quite right. Then I realized what it was and yelled 'Run'!

    I took off at a dead run out of that field with wifey right behind me. As soon as I hit the sidewalk, I stopped to catch my breath. Wifey is going 'what did you stop for? What's after us?'

    I replied 'Nothing's after us, I just didn't want to get wet' and pointed to the huge rainbird sprinklers just starting to pour out water. Wow---was she mad!! 'You made me run like that on account of a sprinkler?'... (the rumbling was the sound of water going into the sprinkler system)

    Dude, she was probably angry that you ran out in front of her in the face of imminent danger

    I drove up to the house in a red Lexus 2 seat convertible, hopped out and said "Happy Birthday." It was her birthday. She would have killed me if I HAD bought a $68,000 car, birthday or not. She played along, got the camera for photos of her new car in the driveway and posted on Facebook. I then drove the car back to the Lexus dealership where I worked.

    I bought some of those fake scratch off lottery tickets and put a couple in her Christmas stocking.

    This was probably THE most ill-advised thing I ever did.

    This has history, here goes. Before we got married(25 + years ago) , her grandfather was killed by a car crossing a street. He lived in Florida, and she went down for the funeral. She wanted to bring back some oranges that grew in his backyard, but because they weren't inspected and approved oranges they were confiscated at the airport, except for one. Whether the guy missed it, or was just being a human, we'll never know. So she brings the orange back to NJ, and gives it to my father. My dad eats the orange, and saves the seeds. Now my father has the gift of a green thumb. He can get anything to grow without even trying. He dried the seeds that planted each one in a pot. They all sprouted, and grew in to little orange tree seedlings, in New Jersey. He gave a a couple, which is a bad, mistake as I am the exact opposite when it come to growing things. Grass dies in my footsteps. I'd kill Jacks magic beans. Two of the three seedling he gave us didn't live long, but one hung on. We still have it, it's now about 12 feet tall. We put it outside in the summer, and bring it inside in the winter. My wife has been hoping that it would bear fruit. And it did have little white flowers at one point. She had read that it should be old enough to have oranges, which gave me an idea. I searched at craft store for little fake oranges, couldn't find any. So I went to Walmart and bought a six pack of orange ping pong balls. Perfectly smooth, round ping pong ball, with a printed label. I drilled holes in a few of them, and attached them to the top amongst the leaves one night when she wasn't home. And waited. About two weeks later I'm sitting at me desk at work and my son calls, he is out of breath and locked out of the house. It seems my wife was very, very excited when she saw the 'oranges', until she realized what they were. She thought he was in on it and chased him until he ran out of the house. Then she called me, all I could hear between my spasms of laughter was 'BIG TOUBLE, YOU'RE IN BIG TROUBLE'. Took her a few weeks to calm down.
    If you don't know the way, you shouldn't be going there.

    I did something similar to my MIL who was very gullible. She had watermelon vines growing and blooming in the back yard. I went to a corner stand selling watermelon, then proceeded to put it among the vines. She was really excited that had produced fruit, then realized it wouldn't mature in just a few hours. "Oh, you kids" as wife and I were laughing.

    I once filled my navel with vaseline and while in bed, in the dark, told her that it felt funny, she reach over and popped a finger in there and sphlut...

    Another time I had gotten up to use the bathroom. Apparently I did not wake her up. She then got up quietly and shuffled off to the dark bathroom. She turned around to sit, and that's whenn I grabbed her. She almost went thru the shower door.

    Lastly, another plant story... I once grabbed a few artificial tulips from an old arrangement laying in the basement. I went out in the February snow and shoved them in the flower beds, about where the real once would come up. She was amazed and thought it was wonderful that her tulips blommed so early. I said it was too early and went out and started picking them. She freaked.

    I have some left if you want them.

    Trust me, you do not want to do this to your wife ever. On Christmas Day in particular. In a life full of questionable choices this one is remarkable.

    I've thought about planting one at the lottery sheet station at the local convenience store - like somebody forgot it after filling out their numbers - and sticking around to watch the show.

    I've covered people's (again, not married) toilet seats in a thin film of lotion before. That generally causes a serious freakout.

    I can beat the "fake" tickets.

    One year, a few days before April 1, I bought a lottery ticket for the March 31st SuperLotto drawing. I told my wife about it, and stuck it on the refrigerator door fore safekeeping. Naturally, on March 31st our numbers were NOT picked... but my wife did not know that, she didn't watch the drawing. I went to the store a couple hours later, and purchased a new ticket with the numbers that had just been drawn. When my wife was not looking, I switched the old ticket for the new one. The next morning, I said to her: "I didn't watch the drawing last night, can you check the numbers for me?". She assumed that the ticket on the refrigerator was the same one that had been up for several days, and didn't bother to check the "drawing date" printed on the ticket.

    I let her call several friends and family before I finally told her "April Fool".

    She's now my ex-wife.

    I had a friend of mine call up my husband at work and tell him that she was from the local police dept. She asked him if he was the owner of a 70 Chevelle SS license plate number xxx-xxx. When he verified that he was, and wondered why she wanted to know, my friend told him that they wanted him to stop by the police dept to come claim the vehicle, sign some papers because the car was involved in a crime and had been in a terrible accident after a police chase and was put away as evidence.

    There was silence at the end of the line...

    Then my husband retorted: "Yah RIGHT. Who is this? There's no way my car is stolen because they would have to break into my house, bypass my house alarm, bypass the garage door lock, move three cars from in front of it, bypass ALL the car alarms, cut the steering wheel locks, and face my three big dogs."

    Then he slammed down the phone.

    Way back in the day, the guys I hung around with, and still hang around with, drove some pretty fast cars, which led to more than a few speeding tickets, and a few arrest warrants. So one April 1st, we decide to prank a buddy. We call him up, tell him that "Bob" is in jail and we need bail money.

    This is around 10 pm or so. He gets up, gets the cash and meets us at the city jail. We all have a good laugh in the parking lot at his expense. Then he decides to prank his wife. He calls her up, explains that while bailing out Bob, they ran his drivers license and he too was arrested for unpaid traffic tickets and he needs her to come down with more money and pay his fines or he will go to jail. So the wife gets out of bed and comes to the jail and sees us all in the parking lot and realized she too had been pranked for April Fools. Before it was all over I think we got 4 or 5 people in total. I was not married or dating at the time, so my wife or girlfriedn was not pranked.

    My brother had a funny one for his wife. He hid some of her Christmas presents in the oven claiming she would never look there. As my SIL does not like to cook he was right. She wasn't amused though.

    Well one day I put a for sale sign on it with MY cell phone number on it and took it out for errands hoping that it would get exposed. Parked it back nicely. That Friday we took it to our regular car meet with the usual group of friends and all these people approached him saying they heard it was for sale and wanting to talk about offers. Apparently, someone saw me pass while they were pumping gas and spread the word.

    Boy did I get into trouble for that one.
