I kind of have this irrational fear that whenever a creeper talks to me it’s going to end with me waking up in a bed of ice with a sore back.
One time during my thesis year I woke up dreadfully early for a monday because my back really hurt. Intially I tried rolling over and shaking it off. This did not work. I quickly realized that I didn’t sleep on it wrong, my back REALLY hurt. Then I realized “oh, my left kidney area REALLY hurts… at least I didn’t wake up in a bed of ice..” and then I looked in a mirror and sure enough I had a MASSIVE bruise where my left kidney would be.
the obvious conclusion was that someone tried to steal my kidney and wasn’t smart enough to use something sharp. Definitely not that I bumped into something and didn’t remember. So I made these signs and posted them all over my office/the student government office. The next day when I came in my boss was making fun of me and asked if I got any calls. Then she told me she took one of the signs and posted it in a local pharmacy. She didn’t realize I used my work number. Needless to say the joke back fired- before I came in she received a few hang up calls. Success!
