    The employee didn`t bother to check with the manager first? are you kidding? I think the employee should be fired for such a horrible lapse in judgement. it`s like telling some person to go kill themselves as an insult, and then getting in trouble when they actually do...

    It is sad that people can respond that way to perceived authority. To those people that are claiming that the receptionist got fooled cause she was just stupid, I think it disregards the fact that people are creatures of fear and routine and it is possible to play on that. As we are not privy to the phone conversation, I would love to have heard that. Admitadly most of us would not be fooled, but then through a lack of training and early morning drowsyness, anything is possible

    God, whoever pulled this off is a genius. I want to hear the call, I mean I can`t imagine any possible way of talking someone through the phone into breaking the windows of a hotel. I just can`t.

    I`m not going to call the person who answered the phone stupid, as this seems like a clever prank, BUT if they had asked a few key questions, or at least considered... I donno... that there were guests in the hotel. That they should re-consider pulling the fire alarm? Mabie getting their superior? Yea... not the brightest person.

    This is the kind of thing that is SO evil that you can`t help but have a begrudging respect for the guy who pulled it off.

    "Perceived Authority" - an interesting psychological tool. Me and a mate went to Kmart a few years back, he went in and engaged a $3/hr nobody in conversation, found out his name, who his superior was, etc. Then I went in, dressed in a suit and with a clipboard on my arm, said "Are you Daniel*? Scott* told me to get you to load these for me". I then went through the shelves of TV`s pretending to consult my clipboard "That one... not that one... not that one... yes, that one..." and he loaded all the ones I`d chosen into my car out back for me while my mate filmed it all from a few aisles away. We then went to the manager and showed him how easy it was for someone to rip off his store wearing a suit and a clipboard. You should have seen his face!

    * Not their real names

    While it`s amusing, the prank caller needs to be drating whipped until his skin falls off his back.

    I have had someone call in a bomb threat while working at a pizza joint. She was arrested shortly thereafter while my boss called the police. Apparently, the girl didn`t know about caller ID.

    The color... it burnses us... >.>

    Anyway, funny article. Who would go so far as to break the windows, however? Pulling the alarm I could understand, but after that it gets sillier and sillier.
