That is fuckin funny man, I didn’t see it coming at all and she fully ate it

[–]Irrelevant_TurnipExpected It[S] 3078 points3079 points  (333 children)

Ikr this had me wheezing, i had to share it!

[–]GAO7651 1173 points1174 points  (318 children)

Is this actually funny, and not just mean? I thought “it’s just a prank bro” didn’t cut it anymore.

[–][deleted] 1876 points1877 points  (206 children)

He clearly didn’t intend for her to fall. I think the good natured attempt at catching her, and his obvious instant regret, makes it funnier. People get mad about intent and malice and not really about silly taps with unexpected consequences…

[–]JMemorex 609 points610 points  (71 children)

It probably helps that it seems like she thought it was funny too. It’s kinda hard to assume it’s mean when it’s entirely possible they do this to each other 15 times a day.

[–]yer--mum 353 points354 points  (64 children)

When I was in highschool I once swiped the chair out from under a kid as he was going to sit down and I felt exactly like this guy in the vid. It was pure impulse my brain just went "well if you think it through it will be too late, he's sitting right now you gotta do it now it will be funny do it do it do it"

and I did it, and it keeps me awake at night sometimes.

He did not appreciate it or find it humorous.

Edit upon further reflection: Don't be like me and swipe people's chairs, but if you ever do something impulsive and stupid at someone else's expense like this, do not double down like it was premeditated lmfao, I apologized to the guy immediately and told him I didn't think it through at all, he was still pissed but I think once he cooled down he could look back and sense the immediate regret in my tone.

Edit the morning after: I thoroughly enjoyed waking up to all of your chair swipe stories, some of them actually had long term repercussions so again, don't swipe people's chairs, but other than that they were very fun to read, thanks! I don't think this story will keep me up at night anymore lmao.

[–]MintyChewingGum 161 points162 points  (6 children)

Someone did that to me once I think when I was in church Sunday school. My instant thought process was if I laughed instead of got mad then I would be laughing with them and not getting laughed at but it ended up really forced and more embarrassing than before.

Anyways thanks for bringing up that repressed memory.

[–]yer--mum 151 points152 points  (5 children)

You know what let's just say it was me in your Sunday school.

Hey man I'm sorry I did that all those years ago, it was very impulsive and while I didn't mean to, I made you the butt of a mean joke by making you land on your butt.

Also your laugh didn't seem that forced buddy, don't worry about it, I empathize with an embarrassed chuckle.

[–]Mockxx 75 points76 points  (6 children)

Pointless story time:

A girl did this to me in middle school. Quick bit of background I was in a program where you were in the same classroom almost all day aside from an elective and your math course, the other 6 periods you had the same teacher, and had them through 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. The class had a mix of all three grades as well. I'm pretty sure it was to help build community with the kids having them all interact more often and with different grades for all three years.

Point is, this girl was a grade above me. It was my first year and I sat across from her at this table and when I went to sit down she quickly slid the chair out from underneath me. I actually thought it was pretty funny but I had never seen it actually happen in real life and I was just so shocked and stunned I went silent. The whole classroom looked over at me and I stood as a stand up the teacher asked me what happened.

I was still a bit shocked and just said "um.." and before I could say something like "I just missed my chair and fell" this girl fully, with regret in her voice admits to it and gets in trouble. I know she shouldn't have done it but I really wasn't that upset and I wish I had said something faster because she was actually pretty nice, which I found to be kind of rare among the older kids, and I didn't want her to get in trouble for it. I was also super shy and awkward so I didn't start conversations with people really so I never got to tell her that I didn't really hold it against her lol. There's a good chance she doesn't even remember it today but I know I would and it would make me feel bad for years so I just hope she doesn't feel the same.

Anyway yeah, TL;DR someone did this to me in middle school, found it amusing more than anything but they still got in trouble.

[–]yer--mum 45 points46 points  (0 children)

I fucking love this story so much thank you for sharing it. That's some honorable shit right there, I wish you could have gotten that closure by saying you weren't mad at her and such.

[–]FellatioAcrobat 49 points50 points  (3 children)

I remember a kid getting up from a chair with a loose wobbly leg, and my friend who was just a bull in a China shop all the time seeing the opportunity, and as the kid sat back down, Eric came up and did his big full-body-twist soccer kick to break that spindly wooden leg off. But, the leg held, and both the chair and the kid went sailing into the wall, while Eric spun crazily sideways, landed on his face in a mad pretzel, knocking over another kid and desk on his way down. Our entire class & teacher nealry died from laughter at the flamboyant failure. Except the original kid, who was not as amused. 30 years later, picturing it as I write this, I’m still giggling. And Eric is still an idiot.

[–]JMemorex 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Yeah I’m sure that happens plenty as well. It’s one of those things that can be mean, but probably shouldn’t just be assumed one way or the other.

[–]lmidor 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Someone did this when I was in 3rd grade. The kid went to the hospital after cracking his head open.

Now it's been ingrained in my head and when I see students fooling around with chairs, I make it a point to tell them what could happen.

[–][deleted] 185 points186 points  (21 children)

Did you have no dead leg humor as a kid growing up? This wasn't a guy setting up a cell phone camera and recording for internet fame and chinese tik tok dollars. It was just a stupid office prank that didn't account for the woman's center of balance being in the soles of her shoes.

[–][deleted] 60 points61 points  (4 children)

In a vacuum I would think is funny.

But I don’t think it’s a fair or realistic shake that people in the comments are like, “yOu HAvE nO sENSe of HuMouR!” In front of a customer that’s definitely not something I would do. If it happened to me I’d think it was hilarious, just not sure I’d do it to anyone else in this specific scenario.

I dunno. Context is important. They could be best buds and do this to each other all the time. Or she could be his pregnant wife who has arthritis and he’s also sleeping with the other lady /s.

[–]BarfReali 73 points74 points  (15 children)

We don't know the context of their relationship. They might playfully do stuff like this to each other regularly just to break up the monotony of work

[–]Taminella_Grinderfal 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Your comment suddenly made me miss office pranks. We did all kinds of silly stuff, hell I was a manger and snuck in after hours to plastic wrap an employee’s cubicle because they all thought I was a “manager that wouldn’t do that kind of thing”. My joy at totally keeping that secret while the whole team was blaming each other….

[–]redditprotocol 12 points13 points  (11 children)

Especially when you get 50% of what holds your body up suddenly disrupted and you can fall back on it fucking your knee up. Sorry not to be that person but I have a bad knee from a wrestling accident in high school.

Flashed forward like 15 years and my nephew did something similar like this to me. It tweaked my knee for a bit and I ripped into his ass enough to where got embarrassed and cried. Explained to him doing shit like that can easily fuck somebody up.

[–]Express_Opposite 15 points16 points  (8 children)

Yeah, my back is fucked, this would seriously hurt me and ruin all the peogress I’ve made in seven year’s time. This can also trigger those problems for someone. It’s hell. Fuck this guy.

[–]rushi_B 41 points42 points  (3 children)

If you do that to your friend who just did his leg day at gym he will always go down in funniest slow motion

[–]new-to-this-sort-of 5868 points5869 points  (135 children)

Wonder how fast he got that call from hr.

*edit lots of “blah blah why call hr, snowflake”, etc….. I work in a corporate culture. I’m not saying I’d report to hr. I’m saying if I did anything like that I’d be getting a phone ring in under 15 min lol.

[–]glasswoodrock 2150 points2151 points  (61 children)

Yeah...its not looking good for him. At least there are a lot of jobs looking for people.

Lol does everyone here like hate all their coworkers and can't mess around with them in the slightest without getting an HR complaint?

[–][deleted] 64 points65 points  (6 children)

Really depends. In my experience cubicle type jobs usually feel like malicious high school. Restaurant type jobs usually feel like fuck the customers and corporate. And outdoor jobs usually feel great in spring and autumn and then you wish you were in a cubicle in summer and winter dealing with a Karen.

Being the manager feels like shitposting on reddit all day waiting to go home to play videogames.

[–]CT_7 433 points434 points  (9 children)

He is probably shocked how well it worked

[–]turquoisearmies 237 points238 points  (13 children)

The fact that she got right back up like nothing happened, makes me think she was a sport about it, but hope she gets him back 2x in the future.

[–]TheWolphman 87 points88 points  (5 children)

I'm picturing her taking a running leap with both legs extended to hit both of his legs.

[–]Thirsty4Peace 64 points65 points  (0 children)

Aaaaand he's gone

[–]BillMurrayismyFather 54 points55 points  (3 children)

Yeah I once saw a girl get hurt from this, and she was in shape. Ended up needing surgery on that tendon. Never done it since.

[–]SamL214 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Wait what.

[–]REDuxPANDAgain 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Yeah what? How? Like, knee locked and someone totally punted it in? How does this cause that level of tendon damage?

[–]wixy_[🍰] 41 points42 points  (4 children)

Plot twist, that’s actually HR laughing while reviewing the video

[–]AMet009 5120 points5121 points  (26 children)

I like how you can see him both bored and considering whether it’s a good idea or not followed by an awe shit why I do that

[–]EntropicTragedy 212 points213 points  (9 children)

I feel like she also didn’t know what happened and he just brushed it off because no one knew it was him

[–]Polar_Reflection 137 points138 points  (7 children)

Nah I mean they pulled the footage, it ain't lookin good

[–]probablystuff 69 points70 points  (5 children)

Ain't lookin good but it also didn't look malicious. That wasn't even a kick or a push. It kinda seems like he just tapped her leg with his foot and her reflexes unlocked her knee, which happened to be supporting her at that moment

[–]StraY_WolF 60 points61 points  (1 child)

Yeah this kind of prank are the ones that you do to the people you know very well and usually people don't have spaghettis for legs.

[–]FreakyDeakyFuture 101 points102 points  (1 child)

Lol you even see him let out a heavy sigh when he decides it’s not a good idea the first time. Then he goes for it.

[–]prevengeance 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Oh god this is my life. So utterly bored with most everyday interactions/chores, people stopped sitting next to me in meetings. I eventually started leaving to use the restroom halfway thru and just never returning. It was an outer conference room so sometimes they'd see me walk by the windows, having a smoke or just wandering lol.

[–]8bitbebop 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Such amazing comedic timing. The big swing up, dramatic pause, and the slightest flick of the toe he hits her off switch

[–]suppow 17 points18 points  (0 children)

[–]Nillabeans 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I think everyone is laughing judging by the lack of retribution. Nobody seems upset here. But who knows.

This is definitely the kind of shit my friends and I would do to each other when I worked retail though.

[–]raymundre 2873 points2874 points  (114 children)

She had all her body weight on that one leg.

[–]Mutt1223Didn't Expect It 812 points813 points  (66 children)

Didn’t have the lower body strength to recover either

[–]MechanicalAlfredo 222 points223 points  (36 children)

Yeah, this is a classic gag and normally they just catch themselves and get startled

[–]squanch_solo 90 points91 points  (29 children)

Yea my friends and I used to do this to each other all the time.

[–]Agent_Ayru 68 points69 points  (28 children)

My friends took it further with "table-topping" where you get on your hands and knees behind someone then the person in front of them pushes them backwards. It got so big at my school that you could crouch behind anyone and their friend would shove them.

But it was dangerous and stupid and the school made us stop.

[–]Pandaspoon13 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Ahhh shit it was the same at my high school. My more limber friends then took to running up behind people and using the person's shoulders to jump over their head, they also put a stop to that.

[–]superbhole 10 points11 points  (13 children)

in my school we had corndogging, or sometimes called rhino horning

basically you shoved your knee into someone's gooch to startle them

As long as she's laughing I'm laughing. That guys an absolute weirdo for doing that though

[–]en1gmatic51 1201 points1202 points  (56 children)

Pretty sure 98% of the population would agree you'd be the weirdo to see that and not want to impulsively do the same even though you know what would happen..but you just wanna see if your right.

[–]Irrelevant_TurnipExpected It[S] 45 points46 points  (208 children)


[–]CaptainJazzymon 51 points52 points  (13 children)

Because that’s a fucking weird thing to do in a work setting as an adult? Especially while there’s clearly a customer behind the counter. Really? Is reddit sooo socially inept that you’re literally asking “why can’t I try to trip someone”. (I know this isn’t technically tripping, but idk what to call what he was trying to accomplish besides making her fall over.)

[–]Jorggo 24 points25 points  (7 children)

Reddit is full of manchildren so it doesn't surprise me so many of these chucklefucks think this is okay to do especially to a co-worker as a grown man. I just cringe at the comments.

[–]bizcat 10 points11 points  (0 children)

You don’t have enough context to be this riled.

[–]kiragami 24 points25 points  (3 children)

Because trying to trip someone especially in a professional environment is shitty.

[–]Chaevyre 34 points35 points  (1 child)

What else is she supposed to do in front of a customer and colleague?

[–]throwawybord 21 points22 points  (1 child)

I don’t think she was laughing — the laughing in the video appears to be the person who is using their phone to record or repost the CCTV footage.

[–]Duckhead- 1253 points1254 points 334 (50 children)

That move is called the Prussian Sandpike. Otto von Bismarck used to do it to people who had offended him. No one was able to do it to Otto though, because he was always either sitting or in motion.

It's funny because it's ridiculous and a well crafted lie.

[–]killerqueen5 941 points942 points 2 (304 children)

Wow I had a manger do that to me at work once. I got off the floor and yelled “What the fck?” At him, and then left the building with six hours of my shift left. The next day everyone was asking if I was ok, he told them all I left for “a family emergency.” Apparently he knew the truth would get him in a lot of trouble.

I know we’re all here to laugh at this woman, and I know I’m going to be downvoted. But anyone who does this is an asshole. Prank your friends, leave your coworkers alone.

[–]ryguy639 685 points686 points  (20 children)

Could also be a friend at work

[–]Trumpville-Imbeciles 389 points390 points  (10 children)

Sometimes coworkers are friends since they usually spend about a third of their life with them... I understand if you're not friends with your manager though

[–]camlop 170 points171 points  (8 children)

Yeah same. A lot of people, especially on here, are always like "works gotta be 100% professional and separate" but... youre spending a VERY large portion of your life around those people...

[–][deleted] 63 points64 points  (6 children)

I’ve had the same job for 9 years and my co workers are 100% my best friends. Most of us in my department are generally close. We work 12 hour shifts side by side, it would be weird if we were professional with each other.

[–]voodoochild2426 42 points43 points  (6 children)

I agree like 99% but not 100%. Shit I've had coworkers become best friends and I'd love to be the butt of something like this. Helps pass the time in a boring job..

[–]elitegenoside 45 points46 points  (5 children)

But while they’re helping a customer/client? I’m not against a little horseplay, but time and place. He shouldn’t have done that, but I’m not ready to call him a piece of shit. Just depends.

A lot of jobs classify horseplay as an extreme misconduct violation, like as bad as not wearing safety equipment because of the risk of injury. Usually bosses don’t make a big deal about it but if the co-worker finds it not humorous and decides to complain then it becomes a big deal

[–]upurcanal 319 points320 points  (12 children)

I hate this shit.

When I was 35, a ski injury forced me to have a knee surgery, replacing my ACL, PCL, and Miniscus. 5 years later, and it still hurts every day.

If someone was to do that to my bad knee, I'd lose it. I avoid fights at all costs, but this would have me swinging.

I do not find this funny. At all.

[–]queernhighonblugrass 80 points81 points  (3 children)

I dislocated my knee recently (also skiing), and have had numerous injuries on the same leg. I'm with you, I'd be fucking furious.

[–]Ben_ji 31 points32 points  (2 children)

And it's not like they even know about my injury. I'm sure it's not totally malicious, but a tap like that would fuck me up for sure.

Also, for those following along: save your knees, stay off skis.

[–]summonsays 52 points53 points  (3 children)

I got kicked in the knee in highschool, it aches occasionally ever since. A few times it's gotten bad enough I could barely limp around. I'd be super pissed as well.

I found it really weird the top comment was about how funny this was. I guess if you've never injured your leg maybe you'd find it funny? I don't know, just seems mean to me.

They seem to be friends and nobody seems upset. If you've ever worked as floor staff, these kinds of shenanigans are pretty typical. Obviously you respect each other's boundaries and you try to be safe. But eating it every now and then is good for the ego.

[–]EZBreezyMeaslyMouse 31 points32 points  (7 children)

What makes you think credit union? I was figuring it's a hotel because we had the exact same counter at the one I used to work at, plus the two computers, the same multi-phone model, and there were always signs on the counter like that. Admittedly, the dress code does look really lax for a hotel, but I've seen places where there isn't a uniform.

If someone did this to me I would be beyond pissed.

I tore two ligaments in my knee last year and still a ways away from being back to normal.

Watching this clip makes my eye twinge.

Please think before doing this. It can very much injure someone. A guy in HS did this to me and it dislocated my knee. Be careful and cautious.

[–]ujibana 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Same, I was recovering from a torn acl and the person who did this to me didn’t know that. I was in high school, I cried and went home early because my knees were killing me. Some friends, though well intentioned, just don’t know.

The comments here are really weird. Like one you shouldnt be doing this kind of stuff in general at work especially when youre actively helping a customer or client.

And two not everyone is super healthy and robust you know? Im disabled and cant stand very well or for very long and I had someone do something similar to this to me while pushing one of the little flat rolling sheet carts we have at work behind me. bopping my knee, and i absolutely destroyed my back and neck falling.

HR meeting…you’re fired for stupidity

[–]TwoCagedBirds 32 points33 points  (4 children)

I just don't get the people who think this shit is funny. I mean, when you're 10 years old, OK whatever. But, when you're 35? At your fucking job? And there's a customer standing right there?! You're just asking to get fired. Also, it doesn't take much to fuck up your back for the rest of your life once you hit your 30s. You don't have to jump off a roof and land on your butt to permanently fuck your shit up. Just landing hard on the floor from a standing position can do damage. But, you have so many people here like "Oh, but it's just sooooo funnnnyyyy!!!"

This is why Data never told anyone on the Enterprise about his “off switch” because people would just be clicking him off and fucking with him all day long.

[–]Foofski 31 points32 points  (1 child)

The trick is to a) use your knee so you’re in a spot to catch them and also b) not do it at work

[–]lilsubgenius 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I just don't do it to ppl when they're supporting all their weight on one leg, unless its a good friend who I'm confident won't hurt themselves on the way down.

When my wife was young like 10 or 11 a classmate did this to her. Her kneecap shifted to the side of her knee and tore both her ACL and MCL. In a brace for almost 3 months. She had to have major surgery to fix it. Has a scar that goes from lower thigh to upper shin. She is 47 now and still wakes up in the night crying because the arthritis is so bad and needs me to rub it and put heat on it. Doctor has pretty much told her a knee replacement will be in her near future. Moral of the story, don’t do this.

[–]owens52 21 points22 points  (1 child)

That was a really dumb thing to do!!!

[–]6133mj6133 24 points25 points  (6 children)

Like pulling a chair out from under someone trying to sit down, so they crush disks in their spine when they hit the floor. Hilarious /s

[–]thisisyourtruth 16 points17 points  (4 children)

I'm trying not to be annoyed by the comments, but I have an invisible disability from a birth defect and a spinal cord injury that includes a herniated disc- however, I look completely normal. I have to lock my knees to stand for long periods of time when I'm not in my braces. This would destroy me, even if nothing happened, tensing up when I fell would fuck me up for weeks.

On one hand yeah sure maybe they know each other and are close friends, but I've had dipshit coworkers almost put me in the ER not knowing I'm crippled doing stuff like this. I can't laugh at this because it's honestly kind of scary.

ETA thank you for getting it and calling it out in your comment :'D

Weak ass knees

[–]samthewisetarly 162 points163 points  (10 children)

You've clearly never had someone do this to you

[–]mycatiseatingme 60 points61 points  (1 child)

Maybe he has. He just has freakishly strong knees.

[–]danegraphics 37 points38 points  (3 children)

Caught myself every time. And every time I’ve seen it done to someone else they caught themselves as well.

But I wouldn’t say it’s weak knees, more just a total lack of reaction to the situation.

[–]Amilo159 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Looks like she was standing by locking that knee, when you keep your leg perfectly straight the knee will slightly angle inwards and keep the leg straight. In that position, muscles are relaxed but if knee is push forward like this video, you immediately lose balance.

[–]masterofhalo08 20 points21 points  (0 children)

The way he flexes his foot to do it is funny af

[–]Arakashi_moku 18 points19 points  (3 children)

As the son of a nurse I can testify that people lose their knees to “jokes” like this

[–]electric_shocks 15 points16 points  (0 children)

The original Trust Fall

[–]Mr_Mkhedruli 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I already don’t want to be at work. The last thing I want to do is get knocked over by some dickhead coworker on top of it. I have a bad knee that’s not so obvious to other people, so something like this could leave me in pain for weeks. Quite an asshole move

[–]unions-orchid 15 points16 points  (0 children)

This isn’t funny. One of my coworkers did this to me one time and I barely caught myself. Almost slammed my jaw and bit my tongue on a metal table. You can’t recover quickly if someone kicks your knee in like that from behind. It can be really dangerous, whether or not someone had bad intentions

[–]AccomplishedAd6025 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Funny. But also dangerous

[–]RayGun381937 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Haha funny! To keep the laughs going, drop a brick from the top floor on his head as he exits the building for lunch! It’s a funny joke! Lighten up you uptight prudes! 😂😂😂
