An hour early

“An hour early” was a form of birthday present at my Boarding School. It was not really a present; it was more like a plank!

This involved changing his clocks, watches to an hour early while he is fast at sleep. So he would get up an hour early!

I don’t know if this still exist amongst modern boarding schools but this is a classic.

Of course I did get the same treatment. But I made them work hard! As in those days I never took off my watch, so it wasn’t easy for them to change the time on my watch without waking me up.

So they did, and so I did wake up at an hour early. While I was getting dress and ready for Breakfast, I was surprised that no one was up, everyone was still asleep. I turned on the radio a little to find out that I have been done. My roommates were pretending to be sleeping and started to laugh at me.

I said “You bast@rds!”, before I burst out laughing too!

I know I soon be another year older. Although I don’t have any roommates, but this morning the time on my alarm clock was set to an hour early. It must be me during my sleep! As I was about to leave the flat, I noticed the real time from another clock. I was done… by myself!

Happy Birthday to myself then, my inner self send me a present, thank you! LOL!

It means that I am at work an hour early, so I am finishing early, after all its date night on Monday nights!

Find and Replace (F&R)

When find and replace was first introduce to computing, it was a major breakthrough.

In school, we use to have so much fun to.

Using find and replace and changing SOMEONE ELSE work is a classic plank!

Some simple examples for you.

Find “I” and Replace with “I the Wanker” “I the Gay” “Miss (teachers name)”

Find “do” and Replace with “don’t”

Find “don’t” and Replace with “do”

same for is, are was, were etc, the report will read very well after all the F&R

MAKE SURE YOU SAVE IT, then close word down, so there will be NO UNDO!!!!!

Obviously, we would save a copy SOMEWHERE else for save keeping.

A plank should always have a good ending, it is just a bit of fun!

Try it!
