Take it off your chest...

I fucking hate April Fool's Day. I don't know why it's a "holiday". Whatever it started as, it's now just a day for people to see what lies they can get away with and what shitty "pranks" they can pull. It's just a day to be mean. And for people like me who can't tell when people are joking or being serious, and people with social anxiety, this day is hell. I have to stay off the internet and avoid people entirely because I can't trust anyone not to lie to me. But I can't avoid work, and I'm dreading it. My coworkers especially like to mess with me because they know I can't tell when they're being serious. It pisses me off. It's so draining.

  • I agree wholeheartedly. I do have anxiety and I don't know if it's that or something personal, but being pranked or fooled makes me feel like shit, even if it's a tiny thing, And especially if people make fun of me for having believed it. I wish this day didn't exist.

  • I feel you. Some people take things way too far on this day - pranks should always be harmless and fun for both parties. And I'm so sorry that your coworkers are like that :( I, too, have difficulty with telling the difference between jokes and serious speech and I think it's unacceptable that your coworkers take advantage of that.
