I'm looking forward to spring right about now and wondering if you've ever played any heating-related April Fools pranks on your friends or employees employees?

    I would never think of filling up a competitors service van with foam packaging peanuts while he is parked at a supply house. What kind of a person do you think I am?

    After you make that expensive repair and you still have the same problem, What will you check next?

    Umm 🤔 Nope 🤷‍♂️ .. .. 
    One way to get familiar something you know nothing about is to ask a really smart person a really stupid question

    I'm sure they're still finding them now.

    Hi, Not sure this quite fits, but my grandparents pulled a good one. My Mom was born on April fools day, If she had been born on any other day, I wouldn’t be me as I am, or might never have been 👻 So I like April first, even if I don’t pull pranks on people 😇

    Yours, Larry

    I remember one particular April Fools' joke- The Day The Wall Went Dry!

    This was the year Dan was on vacation and a bunch of us decided we'd post as scorched-air/heat pump pushers. Obviously, back then the site didn't have the member sign-up procedure it now does. This gave rise to some creativity- the one I remember best was "Tickles the cat" who got lost in a duct system and was never found. This was several Wall generations ago and AFAIK the thread was never preserved- bummer!

    Fortunately, Dan is a good sport and we're all still here. B)

    I work at a supply house. We supply donuts. I've always wanted to do this, but could never bring myself to do it. Get the donut baker to stuff the chocolate eclairs with mayonnaise instead of cream, yum!

    I had a service tech who hid a carton of spoiled chocolate milk in another techs service van. Since it was summer, the odor was overwhelming. The tech used to drive down the road with his head out the window like a dog. The prankster removed it before the tech found it and never knew what caused the bad smell

    A common prank among fisherman; hide 2 fish inside someone's truck.
    One is an easy find....maybe just under the seat.....throw it out almost immediately.

    The second one is not.....perhaps under the dash....might not find it for a week or more.
