Prank Calls

I turned the radio on as I was in the bathroom washing up yesterday morning. My dial is currently locked into the local station that plays the Steve Harvey morning show.

They were doing a prank call when i turned the radio on.

A husband had the show prank call his wife to make it seem as though the husband was cheating on his wife. The people on the show took the joke REALLY far.

The wife, very angrily, swore to do some combination of killing/beating down of her husband. They let her get angry for about 2-3 minutes and then they said "HAAAA, YOU'RE BEING PRANKED BY THE STEVE HARVEY MORNING SHOW!!!!!"

not cool.

I can understand how messing with someone's feelings for something unimportant could be funny. For example, i once prank emailed a coworker to lead him to believe that his car was being towed from the office parking lot. He ran into my office and frantically asked me if i knew what was going on and then ran downstairs only to see that there was no tow truck in the parking lot at all.


On the other hand, i would equate what happened on the steve harvey morning show to prank calling someone to tell them that their mother died and letting them grieve for 2-3 minutes and then telling them that you were just joking.

soooo uncool.
