Parents were amused... found it funny

by jl333 on October 7, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Everytime I work for a particular family, we always pull a prank for the parents arrival. We've been pulling pranks for more than 10 years, so the parents know to expect 'something'. This year,we decided to redecorate their house from
Halloween decorations to Christmas decor. We were quite successful, complete with hanging lights on the roof and garage. We had Christmas garden decorations covering the lawn. As we were setting up, neighbors drove by slowly, giving us awkward and confused looks. We know from last experiences that the parents take everything with a grain of salt. They do have a good sense of humor about it...and this last one they found quite amusing. I do my best to please.
