I just imagined myself on the handle side of the saw and my foreman being pissed at me for not being able to cut Sheetrock with hand tools because I’m a millennial.
Shit my boss would see the other side of the wall, then come over to me and start bitching
Red Forman here, I'll put my foot in your ass!
Hold on a minute! Does this mean I'm not actually bad at using a saw and someone has been pranking me this entire time?!
Well, he figured it out guys. It's been great for years. We're moving onto phase two.
Damnit Jeff! I told you to wait until phase three for the fourth wall break.
Frank, go with option c of phase 2.
Start with the leaking faucet
When can I stop hiding under his bed and jolting him awake just as he's starting to fall asleep? I miss my family.
Your family moved on after the 5th month, and your wife remarried about 4-5 years back, but it'll all be worth it when we get him.
You know it. I've been in his church confessional for 3 years now with the leaf blower ready to go. I know all the murdered hookers he's confessed to me will be worth it soon. We're gonna get him so good, guys.
I know it's all a part of the master plan and everything, but can someone please remind me why I've been digging this hole with a spoon? It's been about 6 weeks now and I'll admit I'm going a little stir crazy.
No worries! Once Phase 2 of Phase 2 starts you'll know exactly why!
no matter what happens,
Oh I'm not too late then! I have acquired the rabid squirrels, dyed their fur green and taught them to only crave nuts in leather pouches. Has anyone gotten any updates from Morgan yet? I was suppose to meet up with him under the bridge the guy crosses every day on his way to work. And I know for a fact Morgan needs four of the squirrels for his part. I'll stand by for phase 3 as per protocol, just in case.
Wait we're on option c and not option b. Fuck am I gonna do with 9000 pounds of Gogurt.
Morgan died last week while messing with this guy's elevator... He left notes, but nobody understands them yet. Possibly a code, possibly shitty handwriting, possibly madness.
How is the story in phase 2
Could be that clorine you been sniffing
Never Greg here’s you a bowl of corn flakes and some water... we’re gonna get him so good, totally worth it!
jolting him awake just as he's starting to fall asleep?
Please start doing this to someone else.
I thought Jeff is still on his first wall?
This started one of the best reddit response threads, I've ever read. 🤣
No not phase two we're not ready
Oh boy, I'm this guy. It's on to.
Maybe "Phase Two" is the name of their private island
Phase two? I've been waiting for this. His committees are going to be so fun.
You got me bro! I’ve been in your walls for years. I’ve watched Sally grow up. I’ve fallen asleep to the soothing snores from Billy. The voices that Melissa is going to therapy for is actually just me screwing with her. And I know why your wife always wakes up with a headache.
The fuck am I supposed to do other than screw with your family? It’s hella bored in these walls man. Toss in a few magazines behind one of your switch plates pls.
I mean, you clearly have internet, so really you're in an ideal situation
Chill bro, it's just a plank!
No. You're bad at using a saw.
so am i
Goddamn, that would frustrate the fuck out of me.
Same, I felt like weeping after seeing this. It's like a phantom frustration, because it ain't even happening to me right now but I feel it.
You feel it too, don’t you? The phantom frustration? I’m gonna make them give back our past!
So glad to hear I'm not the only one who experiences this. It made me so uncomfortable.
And I’d never think to check that this could be the reason
Yeah, but if you ever found out wouldn't you just want to strangle the fucking life out of them?
Strangle? When you have a saw you can do much better things with it.
No, I would carefully emulsify poison ivy in a waring blender, drain the fluid off into a spray bottle and spray the fluid on the door handles of his car.
I was feeling frustrated watching it for that guy
This has to be staged right? No one that works construction would feel that much resistance, and think "damn, that's some strong drywall! I'd be walking around to see wtf I was cutting into that I wasn't supposed to be. Not to mention when he grabs it with the pliers, there would be some serious feedback to the operator.
Nope. You would assume you could point out some bullshit and then it happens to you and throws your ass for a loop lol. We fucked with people just as bad at my job and they learned eventually. I was fucked with too the same way. It's like a tradition.
Yep when you’re watching it on the internet it’s easy to think you wouldn’t fall for it!
You can tell its bullshit coz theres no "WHAT THE FUCK JUST CUT YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT" coming from the other side
Could be a rookie , novice, intern or whatever a newbie is called. Would too embarrassed to say, " um yeah, Joe, I'm having trouble cutting this drywall". Imagine the berating s/he would have to endure. "Nope, I'm just gonna keep sawing." 😁👍🏼
Not everyone has a Ph.D. in profanity from the Navy.
I 100% agree with you. I’d be like wtf is going on.
Probably not, Looks like a typical case of picking on the new guy. The fact that they are using a hand saw instead of some form of electric drywall cut out tool tells me they aren’t very experienced. It doesn’t take much wearing yourself it with a hand saw before you invest in a tool to make your life easy. In their defense if the back side of the wall is like the front, they are cutting through a double layer of drywall which would provide additional resistance and be more difficult to cut. Also having done this a thousand times myself. To get that saw started so tight in the corner they poked a hole from the other side so they probably know that they can’t be hitting anything.
What you are meant to do is drop a screwdriver through the hole and walk around the other side so you get to see the reaction
I’m sensing experience. I wish I had a special life-skill to mess with people too.
Haha it's an easy skill to develop. Just remember to keep it nice and harmless lol
so no boiling water propped above the door?
Generally, I would stay away from poisons, explosives and caustic materials too.
crosses out list
Yes of course
Might wanna go ahead and sneak back in your buddies bedside table and throw away those rubbers you pierced with a needle.
Once a couple friends and I hole-punched one with one of those super sharp handheld punchers for no real reason beyond we had both objects at the same time and it seemed natural to join them
Jokingly handed it to another friend who brightened up and said “Thanks I needed one!”
Instant realization that he was far too drunk
I dunno, a firecracker like a hydrocracker on the blade could make it feel like you cut a live wire. I would love to see the dudes reaction.
lets add "resulting in blunt force trauma" to that list
Pour a little ketchup on the blade after one last use of the pliers so the coworker panics about what he hit with the saw.
Naw, just hit the breaker for the lights and throw a bunch of pop-its at the same time
Only because sometimes someone else steps through the door
With great power comes great responsibility.
Next time you are able to, put clear tape on the tip of an ethernet rj45 connector and watch the IT guys troubleshoot everything but the physical layer.
I work in IT and I've been thinking about this for a few minutes now trying to decide if it would work on me. I think it would depend on the situation, if something that was working properly suddenly stopped working I think this would trip me up for a while because I almost always assume it's user error or software if it was working earlier. If it was some kind of a new install I think I would check the basics first.
Now I'm trying to decide if I would laugh or be pissed. I really hate network troubleshooting so there's a decent chance I'd be pretty annoyed.
When I worked in IT we had a little saying of Physical First. Having said that I did take way too long once helping someone who kept locking out their password to find that a colleague had switched the D and the S on their keyboard.....
Duck my sick John!
Yeah in my college help desk a lady called kept saying her keyboard wasnt working. Tried a hard reboot everything. SHE DIDNT HAVE IT PLUGGED IN .
A lot of us in the networking shop, especially the new guys, had this done to us. It got me a few times due to it's hard to see and makes you pay attention to detail.
That and setting someone's port to half duplex was funny too.
see, you can learn that you need to check the physical layer first, but you won't do it cause your brain convinces you it's not or something. We were in class learning about IT networking when we learnt troubleshooting. We had 4 rows of computers, 1 against the wall, 2 in the middle against each other and the last one facing the other wall.
The lecturer was sitting at one of the computers which was against the other computers, so the middle row and while he was talking and had his back turned from his desktop, the student sitting opposite him disconnected his keyboard and plugged the keyboard into his own pc so the light would still be on.
The lecturer did all he could to fix it, and even restarted the computer before he checked and saw it.
In a lot of environments people fucking with the cables (mostly by accidentally cutting them inside walls or mangling them with office furniture on wheels) is a super common issue and one of the first checks (with a basic RJ15/45 cable tester).
If you want to really fuck with them swap the resource identification labels on 2 commonly used identical pieces of equipment then loosely seat the network cable in one of them. Note: this is a real asshole move that needs proper provocation before it's ok.
You are absolute evil
If you really want another way to fuck with IT, just plug both ends of an Ethernet cable into two outlets.
Edit: helps if it's in an obscure location that's not easy to spot.
Lol one of my early IT days I had a ticket, and my first instinct was to look up a convoluted solution that would pretty much wipe the hard drive. The senior tech (thankfully) passed by, restarted it, and boom, fixed. It’s insanely easy to overthink things and embarrass yourself in this field.
Then have someone else remove the screwdriver whilst you glide through it making them look silly.
Get halfway and hand it back off to them. With the screwdriver back in, of course.
Even better--teach them a "trick." Slap the saw or something (with an accomplice removing the driver as you do), then easily slip it out. Slip it back in, get it stuck again by having someone insert the screwdriver again, and then tell them to give it a try. Let them struggle for a bit, then rinse and repeat until they start breaking stuff or you cant hold it in anymore. Bonus points if you can get them to go to the other side of the wall and still keep them convinced its stuck.
You almost had it but you got shortsighted. After you teach them the ridiculous "trick" you don't interfere anymore. Suddenly it works perfectly. Now they slap the saw or do the hokey pokey whenever they need to cut something and you've made them look like a jack ass for life.
This is how religions are accidentally started.
Someone fucked around with Jesus and changed his water out with wine as a prank... Next thing you know, son of God.
If you don't have a second person in on it, give it a Fonz whack straight down while it's in all the way. The wave of the hit will hopefully fling the screwdriver out allowing you to pull it out and say 'ayyyy'.
And while the driver is in the air slip the saw out and back in again quickly enough for the driver to fall into that same hole again, preventing the other guy from pulling it back out.
Only thing better would be to fire a stun gun so the apprentice thinks he cut a wire for a second
A wire running through a window opening?
The band-aid on his index finger tells me this isn't his first rodeo.
Bandaid and the other cut across his knuckles. This prank must be his signature move.
I see just a bandaid, think this guys a fucking pro
Tells me he's too stupid to think to approach the saw from the back. No reason to put your fingers near the teeth of a moving saw.
30s later, "you wanna know how I got these scars?"
You should have saw the other guy.
Hold it still long enough to write their name in sharpie marker. Then just walk away.
Edit: holy guacamole, I got a coin. Thank you kind stranger. Only 99 left until I can get a life.
Drizzle a load of fake blood and hair on the blade before you release it.
The hair is what makes this excellent
I mean, they probably know the other side is accessible here, now on the other hand if you teleport into a closed wall? A- prank, A+ if you write "nothing personnel kid"
Dump a fake blood packet on the blade.
just use ketchup, they won't notice before they figure out you did it.
This time, it's personnel
Coldsteel The Hedgeheg
Or put fake blood on it !!!!
A+ prank. A+ way to get your finger torn off.
Next level is to put fake blood on the saw and then let go. "The walls are bleeding!"
Why use fake blood when you can use real blood?
Or just scream while pouring fake blood on the saw blade.
Oh god this would be so hilarious!
Come on, you have 10 of them. Surely there's some value to a good prank.
A+ pranks require A+ risks for an A+ reward.
If you notice, he does have a plaster on his finger.
Edit: or band-aid for those on the other side of the pond.
Yeah, he’s a construction worker. I’d be worried for his employers if he didn’t have plasters.
Just wait a little bit and grab the saw from the other side of the blade.
First thing I thought when I realized what exactly I was watching. Glad you said it.
As an electrician, this both amused me and infuriated me immensely
When he let it go finally, he should have started pouring water through the crack to really mess with him
I showed it to some of my coworkers and I think I gave them all a bad idea from the look on there face!🤣👌🏻
Anytime your saw is getting stuck, you'll always be wondering in the back of your mind now.
I really enjoy how you started sawing for him towards the end there. That would’ve really had me second guessing my sanity
That lasted 33 seconds longer before I go to the other side. I would've thought it was stuck cutting through something important, like a 220 line.
I'd lose a finger trying to grab that saw, guaranteed.
I would have have dropped a screwdriver through the hole at the end of the blade, and hid.
No wonder construction takes so long.
Ah, the saw stop everyone keeps talking about.
It amazes me how many people think he’s using a sawzall, it’s a hand saw for fucks sake, he’s cutting out drywall by hand around the stud. Harmless and funny
If it was a sawzall there would have been no attempt to try and grab that
Few more beers and I'll do it.
I hung drywall right out of high school with a guy named Glenn. Apparently he lived next to us when I was just a wee lad (he was 10 years older). Anyway, I didn't remember him but he remembered me. We moved. Fast forward 18 years and I'm a high school gas station pumper kid. Yes, back in the day Meatheads like me pumped your gas and checked your oil. Glenn drives in and somehow figured out I was that kid way back when. He asked me if I wanted to make real money. Of course I do. So I went to work with Glenn a week later. I don't know if you know what drywallers are like, or at least what they were like where I was but these were some hardcore motherfuckers and Glenn was the top dog. 6' 2" and built like a brick shithouse. He taught me all the do's and dont's of the trade between fifths of Jack Daniels, eight balls or anything else he could get his hands on. For whatever reason he took a liking to me and I learned pretty quickly that was a good place to be. He did all the customary fuckwithya's as seen in this post. The new guys got "the hot box". That's where he'd shit in a glue box, stick it in a closet and tell em to go hang that closet. Drywall is extremely fast paced so by the time you were at the back of the closet and got a healthy whiff of his Budweiser Bile he was already screwing the osb over the doorway so you couldn't get out. There is nothing like the smell of Glenn's shit and drywall dust. When he was coming around a corner one day I flipped open my razor knife acting like I was going to gut him. He stood for a minute and said "you might not want to do that". He raised his shirt and showed me all the horizontal 1/2" wide scars that littered his guts. Apparently he got into a slight altercation with a guy down in Tennessee and the guy had a box cutter and Glenn had him in a headlock. That's a bad combination. "He damn near cut my dick off". I never flipped open my razor knife again. I saw him throw a board saw through a layer of drywall, fiberglass insulation, 7/16" osb, house wrap and vinyl siding and it stuck in the neighboring house because a new guy left the saw on a board pile (another big no-no). He bet me lunch he could pick up a 16' 5/8" sheet with his teeth and hold it for a minute. I forget what I ended up buying for lunch. I desperately coaxed him off the top of Kevin who's face closely resembled hamburger as Glenn reined down punch after punch while eerily telling me 'dont do the crime if you can't do the time'. I remember our drive home booger box. I remember hearing all the stories from the other guys about getting fucked by the builder or a home owner. Glenn never got fucked. Glenn was the fucker. Man I got so many stories. I heard he died out on the east coast. Don't know what happened. That guy taught me more about life then all my college professors combined. He was good to me and he was good to other people...as long as they were good to him.
Never mind the prank, who the fuck cut the wavy board down the vertical stud on the right hand side!
Just put some ketchup on it, let it go and scream loudly.
Pop a screwdriver in the end hole and walk away.
Squirt fake blood on the knife.
Zero property damage. Zero physical harm. Zero humiliation. Ladies and gentlemen, we have an actual prank.
People are going to lose so many fingers once this video hits Facebook next week...
This could have been that much better if we got to see the reaction of the guy being fucked with
