I know that CP is usually great for adviceÖso for the first time here I am asking.

My friends and I are usually good for a solid session of ripping on one another. Itís constant, really, but nobody takes it too personally and we all genuinely care for each other's company and well being. But friendly banter is where it should end, IMO. Well two of my best friends who come over to my apartment a lot think itís funny to fuck with me. Basically, they like getting a reaction out of me. Usually itís something lame, but they still get under my skin because I hate pranks. I donít do pranks and they really piss me off. I donít like chairs pulled from underneath me and I donít like my room to be fucked with. Somehow my reaction to pranks must be really funny because they fuck with my room a lot. From hiding my laptop to moving furniture theyíve usually managed to piss me off without really going over the line. I let them know that they are disrespecting me, but I usually just leave it alone and they certainly donít take me seriously. Iíve never wanted to blow things out of proportion. However, now I think theyíve crossed the line. I got word from my roommate today that my room has been painted pink and that there are stickers of dolphins fucking placed all over my walls. Iíve been visiting my parents for the last week and I know that these two guys are involved and possibly one of my other roommates. Itís worthless to lock my room because a simple library card will get you in. These guys wonít buy beer unless itís a 6-pack for themselves and consistently drink everyone elseís beer but they go out and buy paint to do thisÖ.itís unreal to me. Really these are the cheapest bastards alive so I know they painted my room with the lowest quality available. If Iím going to have a pink room Iíd at least like to enjoy a solid paint job. My first reaction was to get serious with them and let them know how pissed I am. Iím to the point where I would have no problems getting physical if they had a serious case of smart mouth. However, I think that may be an overreaction. I also donít want to engage in a prank war because I will inevitably lose because I donít exactly thrive on that type of shit. I was thinking maybe of going up early without them knowing and repainting the room on my own dollar and just ignoring them--- pretending it never happened. While Im sure this would infuriate them, Im not so sure they would stop pranking until I boiled over. Overall, how do I deal with this situation? I feel like I have been disrespected but maybe Iím just being an oversensitive, thin-skinned pussy. Is this a harmless joke that I should just roll with? Iím pretty positive that they will paint my room back without much troubleÖbut who knows. You canít say get new friends because Iíve only got a handful of good ones and they also happen to be friends with my roommates.

I hate to say it, but that's hilarious.

Being that you're not one to exact revenge, I would just ignore it. Paint over it, act like nothing ever happened, and I'm sure it will piss them off more. Don't mention it, and if they do just blow it off. Hopefully they get the hint.

Either that or just confront them about it. Let them know that it's gone too far and you really don't appreciate it.

I think his friend's need to pony up and pay to repaint the room. What kind of friends keep doing stupid shit like this after you've asked them not to? I'm guessing these are college aged kids. Hopefully they grow out of it, and patience with them will pay off. Somehow, even if they stop doing the pranks, they are the type that will give the guy shit over it for the rest of his life.

In this case, I would paint the room either on their dime or deny them beer until the cost has been recouped, or get new friends.

Seriously dude, You need to make a stand and deal with these MF'rs - friends or not.

I'm not condoning this, but if I were you, I'd invite these guys to a bonfire. Tell them you are buying the beer and the grub. Pile up all of their clothes and all their electronic shit and burn it at the bonfire before they get there. Let those asswipes know who they are fucking with. I'd pack a weapon as well, but that's just me.

the roommate who wasn't involved was the guy who informed me. I believe it. Im pretty much over being pissed...and since they don't know that I know, it will make revenge much sweeter. Im going to repaint it before they even know Im in town and maybe get them back in another way. Ill deny everything saying that I was home....hopefully I can convince my roomies to vouch for me.

Sounds to me like you screwed up by not putting a stop to it to begin with. They know you're only going to bark when they yank your chain.
Let them know you're tired of the BS, especially crap thats going to cost you time and money to take care of. Anymore of the idiotic shit and it's going to cost one or both of them a couple teeth, top row, middle.



Edit : Just to clarify things, would you still be pissed if they had used unicorns instead of dolphins ? If thats the issue then forget what I typed above and just give them both a good slap or two.

You need to fuck their shit up hard. Seriously, they did got too far. I would make THEM repaint you're room, or I would fuck up their cars. Id put dog shit all in their cars, and I mean rub it into the seats. If they don't fix your room, I would end the friendship. They do not respect you if they don't fix it, and they should not be your friends. Don't get all crazy with them. Be cool, and tell them they must repaint your room, or they are not your friends. Destroy their shit, and end the friendships.

Buy a shit ton of beer and liquor. Get one of them really fucked up to the point he passes out. Get you solid roommate to video tape. Grab a cold hotdog out of the fridge and while ol boy is passed out, unzip your draws, hold the hotdog like its you cock and and roll it around in ol boys mouth until he wakes up. Then act surprised, say 'Oh Shit', turn around real quick and zip up, making ol boy think he had you cock in his mouth. He can't live that down.

These guys don't really sound like friends, to be honest. If they know something is bothering you and they keep doing it, it means that they're just using you for their own amusement.

Your only options are:

1) Move out and only see them on neutral ground.

2) Do a "prank" on them that really makes them mad.

Option 2 is kind of risky, because they may be the type that will then escalate. I worked with a pair of brothers like that when I was young, and they thought it was funny to do stupid pranks. But if you did something back, they'd then escalate it and had no idea when to stop. I didn't have major issues with them, but they'd harass other workers so bad that they made their lives miserable.


In all seriousness, those people are not your friends.

...or the old "potato up the tailpipe" trick. Works every time and really stresses them out, costs them great inconvenience and money, maybe even a tow to the car dealer where you know they're gonna get hosed. Stays in their mind, too, every time they get into their car. The best thing is, do it immediately after one of their stunts and don't take credit for it. They'll think it is bad karma and will relate it their own actions and they will never know for sure if it was you... If that doesn't work try the "fish under the front seat" trick.

As a veteran of several prank wars, I think you are in a very favorable position here. While their prank was pretty funny, its not like they messed up ur sh*t too bad. At the same time, re-painting someone's walls is serious enough that you have considerable leeway in responding.

Assuming you don't share a bathroom with these characters, I would suggest ex-laxing one of them, and covering the toilet seat with saran wrap. The key to this prank is not wrapping the toilet too early. If you time this up right, the dude will fuck up his bathroom and his pants worse than anything you could ever do.

Another suggestion would be to take the tires off their cars, put them up on blocks, and leave a treasure map for them to go on a scavenger hunt for their tires.

Cut their tire stems. What a pain in the ass that is to fix. They have to put in new stems but you've really only caused like $5 worth of damage. The time and inconvenience factor is fucking huge though.

What else are we supposed to come here for?


If CP had existed 50 years ago, no would have ever heard of Dear Abby.

I have a question.

Where exactly do you purchase stickers of dolphins ****ing?

Just wondering. Those might come in handy.
