When does a prank become downright criminality?

By 16 April 2013 14

Green and Gold Rugby is running a tour diary of Brumbies scrum half Nic White.

And frankly one has to wonder if his “pranks” are going a little far:

I felt it was only fair to take Steve and Byron’s furniture and re- decorate my room. I got a key cut a reception, and took the liberty of taking their furniture when they were both out sipping lattes.

This, surprisingly easy, I gained entry to their room, and gave me the opportunity to end this once and for all.

I had one question to ask myself – is it play on to take their passport, and all of their sheets and bedding to the shower and let it run?

Of course it is!

Hopefully the sacking of the receptionist (which should be the next logical step) will be equally hilarious to all concerned.

English clearly wasn’t the authors first language, but does that say he put their passport in the shower?

It should at the very least be when it involves a sports team of any sorts, the higher the profile of that sport or that team in the public eye the greater the penalty. Surely they can create team “bonding” in other ways than turning a blind eye to this kind of 5 year old BS

Nic, you’ve got a long way to go before you’re at Keith Moon’s level!! Have a read of David Lee Roth’s autobiography re hotel room antics, copy one or two then you might progress from the L plates.

Sounds perfectly legal and sort of funny to joke about getting someone’s key and putting their sheets and passport in the shower.

Sounds like the kind of joke I would make after a few glasses of vino bianco.

Why are you such a busybody? If it’s legit pranking of a mate then a true friend would know what their friend would consider a funny response to a joke and what they’d consider a genuine threat of criminal damage.

Even if they managed to social engineer a room key out of a receptionist, there are people who would see the funny side of their passport being drowned. I’d see the funny side if getting it replaced wasn’t going to force me to change my International travel plans or if I wasn’t abandoned by my friends in a country where I had no friends and didn’t speak the language.

In conclusion: Who is this busybody and why?

It’s this sort of garbage which makes me glad I cancelled my Brumbies membership.

I value my time and money. But whatever, I’m probably just the Fun Police.

Halfway through that as we speak :D

There’s nothing overly wrong with this, apart from maybe the passport.

Practical jokes should be funny, and I”m not sure if this passes muster. More creativity needed.
