That's what I had expected. ;-P
About eleven years ago, a co-worker and I each wanted the same day
off. I had seniority, but decided to play fair with him and give him
a shot. I told him that I could guarantee I could tell him the score
of a football game that night before the game started. If I was
wrong, he could have the day off AND I would give him my pay for the
day (we were medics for the state, so it wasn't a horrible chunk of
change). If I was right, I got the day off --- but to make sure it
was fair, we had to watch the game together that night, and he had to
pay for pizza.
When I got to his house, he ordered the pizza and asked if I was
ready to lose. I told him quite the contrary: before the game starts,
the score is a tie at zero-zero.
Being a good sport and admitting defeat, he let me have the day
off. Being as graceful as he was, I instead let him have the day
off.... and paid for the pizza.
A very "cheesy" story (yeah, that's right), but relevant. Seems
that now, in some places, trying to pull the same gag - even on a
friend - could get you two to the chest, single to the head. People
just don't have a sense of humor anymore....
