April Fools’ Day is just around the corner. Be careful you don’t fall into the pranks or tricks especially if it’s life-threatening. (Not to scare you though! :P) To avoid being prank by anyone on April Fools’ Day, here are some useful tips for everyone.
Remember what day it is at all times. Think about it when you get up, while you eat breakfast, as you're driving and throughout your daily activities. You won't be caught off guard by simply failing to remember that it's April Fools’ Day. Yes, paranoia. :P
Take the time to think about everything someone says to you. Analyze the probability of truthfulness in each statement and don't respond until you know whether or not it is true. Or you can just fall for it and have some laughs after.
Avoid conversations that begin with someone saying to you, "Guess what!" or "Check this out!" On April Fool's Day, there is a high probability that these are traps to get you to fall for a prank or believe a false statement. Instead of responding, just say, "No thanks," and walk away like a party pooper. :P
Remain in familiar territory. Don't do anything outside of your normal routine when you are around others on April Fools’ Day. Once you're doing something unfamiliar, it is easy to let your guard down and you'll be more vulnerable to being fooled.
Resist the urge to play pranks on others. If you don't want to be fooled yourself, don't give others a reason to retaliate by pulling pranks on you. If you don't want to be fooled you'll have to stay as unnoticed as possible.
Yes, all of the above is IF you can’t take a joke. :P
But of course if you’d want to prank, PRANK RESPONSIBLY! :)
