I Hate April Fools

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 117 People


    I always get accused of overreacting to April Fools jokes.  No matter how mildly I put it, no matter how calm I am when I say I don't like them, somehow I'm still being a spoilsport for detesting the day. What people don't know is the backstory. I hate April Fools Day because it...

    I find them dislikable, but don't outright hate them. I just always seem to be picked on though. I don't think I got April Fooled at all today which is great, I breathed a sigh of relief when I checked my watch and saw it was 12:01. I was safe for yet another year :)

    It Is Officially Over

    I'd like to put my thanks out to the universe for sparing me from any hideous 4/1 pranks today.  I'm a real sucker and I always fall for whatever story is being pitched.  The dorm years were the worst...

    I Hate April Fools

    The first day of April isn't fun. It is ideal for people to pull pranks on each other, but it is rude and unnatural. For instance, my school was the victim of a prank, that wasn't funny. Someone stole the trophies from the case, valued for swimming and basketball. The person...

    Not Hate, Just Dislike

    I don't hate it but I kinda dislike April Fools Day because my birthday's the first and anytime I tell someone that, they make a dumb "you were an accident... April Fools!" joke. It's not really funny and not the first time I've heard it.

    When my husband and I first started dating I

    made him promise he would never pull an April fools day stunt on me for as long as he lives. So far he's kept his word.

    Back in high school, it was the only time of

    year girls were nice to me. They would talk to me, and be very friendly. Then one would laugh, which caused them all to laugh, and they were very mean to me.

    I guess I wouldn't say I hate it,

    but I don't really like it either. Like I think it's kind of a waste of time. Plus, you can pull pranks on anyone at any point of the year so dedicating a day to just jokes and pranks it's a bit silly. As long as I'm my affected I don't really care, but yea.

    ignorant people. I'll never hear the end of it. People making countless jokes saying I'm stupid causing me 2 not trust people. I can take a joke, but people go too far with jokes these days, and I'm not 1 of those uptight people putting down a holiday 4 the kid inside of that...
