Pranking your parents

Published

Would you pull a prank on your parents or guardians?

Marleen, 24 had just completed her degree at the University on Nairobi. She was in the process of preparing for graduation when a friend approached her with an idea. Edwin who had been Marleen’s friend since they commenced their studies at the university, belonged to the drama club of the school. He came to Marleen and told her about a prank he wanted to pull on his parents.

He said, he wanted to break it to them that he didn’t make it on the graduation list and that the administration of the university would allow him to graduate in three years, citing a case of indiscipline. This he would do on the day of graduation when the parents will be expected to attend the ceremony.

On hearing this Marleen decided she would also do the same, but in her case she would call before hand through a phone call. This she did and the parents did not seem surprised, in fact they told her they understood the predicament she was in and that everything would be alright.

Little did she know, her parents were boiling with anger. She thanked her parents and went about her life only for her to be approached with two uniformed police men later in the day. The policemen introduced themselves and told her that she was under arrest for robbery with violence. Before she could explain her case, she was handcuffed and walked to the police car which drove them to the station.

On arrival she quickly spotted her parents at the entrance of the station, prompting her to dry her tears that were now running down her cheeks effortlessly. However she shockingly noticed the gloom and indignation on their faces “those are your accuser,” said one police officer. Before her jaw could drop fully to the floor, she was matched inside the police station where she met with yet another police officer who with a stringent stern voice asked her numerous questions . She dumbfoundedly answered these questions as she looked to her parents hoping for their intervention.

The question that helped her make sense of the situation was when the officer asked her about her reason for defrauding her parents. Just as she was about to engage her diaphragm, in crying, Edwin jumped from under the reception counter and yelled “surprise” which prompted her to look at her parents who were consumed with laughter to the point of gasping for breathe.

In the modern age where parenting styles have changed, it is normal to find parents having a close relationships with their children. These kind of relations enable the parties involved to share deep secretes, to the extent of playing games with each other.

Recently on social media sites, there have been cases of children pulling pranks on their parents. This is where a child, fabricates lies to see the reaction of the parent or does something to them to see how they respond.

For instance, there was the case of children insulting their mother to see what the father would do. The reaction was as expected. It ruffled to the father forcing the mother to intervene in time by explaining the joke.

Another case is that of young boy who poured water on his parents on their birthdays. As the mother stood dumbfounded on the spot, the father tried to confront the son albeit in a subtle way.

In the case of Marleen, she thought she would have the last laugh but it is her parent who got her in the long run with the help of Edwin. Therefore, as you plan your pranks, be sure to watch your back too!
