First off, I am luck that the guy across from me hates food with "Fiber" and "Nutrition" because now I get to eat the snack bars our friend from the lab is "Bribing" him with. YEA ME!
Secondly, my new manager is Japanese (not Japanese-Amserican, not Korean, Chinese or Asian, he is an honest-to-goodness citizen of Japan) and I get along pretty well with him. We've gone on a site visit together for about a week with another group and we also interact pretty well at work.
Sooooo, it's time for him to pay up.
Yep, he needs to suffer from one of my pranks so he can be "One of the Guys."
My plan is to get a phrase in Japanese like... Oh I don't know...
"I AM A BIG FAT STINKY GORILLA!"
Have it made into a temporary Henna Tattoo, and put it on my arm. I then show up at his desk on Monday and tell him I got a tattoo over the weekend, roll up my sleve and tell him the tattoo guy said it means "Strength."
I have a feeling it will be pretty funny to watch the reaction.
At least for me.
