My least favorite day - April First
Tomorrow is April First, and is quite possibly my least favorite day of the year. Yes, I'll even rank it above Valentine's Day and Christmas, both of which I really dispise (nothing like obligatory gift giving). No, the reason I hate April Fool's Day is everyone and their brother thinks that thier 'new' joke is somehow funny, or that lying has somehow become acceptable. It really gets out of hand when pranks turn personal. This is usually the time I set someone's car on fire, but not as a joke. I suppose that's really my problem. I generally escalate things far beyond where they may be percieved as funny. "Ha ha, logged into your account, took you to Desolace and destroyed your Hearthstone!". My response might be "Funny. I just deleted all your stuff, sent a series of nasty messages to the CM/GMs, got you forum banned, used your account to sell gold, and of course - set your car on fire". See, the last part just puts it over the top. So to everyone planning on writing a "I quit" post, or pulling some practical joke on the blogsphere, just remember - I may not know who you are or where you live, but if your car is on fire, you might want to give me a shout.
