April Fool's Day is coming up tomorrow, and I like to have fun, but sometimes pranks can go too far or they are just distasteful.

I am by far no stick in the mud, but April Fool's is a day I hate.   It just brings the meanness out in people.

I remember one year I had a big meeting and I was dressed nice, and my hair done up.  I was using the breakroom sink and when I turned it on, I got drenched, because someone rigged the sprayer.

I was so angry.  I had to apologize for my appearance at my meeting.

It's not a day to be a jerk, and if you are planning on pranking people, please be aware of what you are doing.

In fact, here are things you shouldn't joke or prank about on April Fool's Day.

Pregnancy or Miscarriage

I have people I hold dear in my life and they are not able to have children or they have had miscarriages.   I can't imagine the sadness and longing they feel.  When they see people posting about their good news and expecting birth, it stings a little.  But to turn pregnancy or miscarriage into a joke or prank is never OK.

Cheating

Relationships are a bond between two people.   Even joking that you're cheating can create a tear in that relationship and plant a seed of doubt.  If you're planning on doing this to your partner don't because the "what if" will always linger.

Any Kind of Prank that Could Hurt or Ruin Something

Just don't, don't.  If you wouldn't try it any other day of the year, don't do it on April Fool's.

No matter what jokes you plan or what innocent pranks you are planning to play on April Fool's Day.  Don't be a jerk.

I'm all for having fun and getting a good laugh, but not at someone else's expense.  Make this a day of fun, not a day of embarrassing.

Amarillo Landmarks: Negative Yelp Reviews

Yelp can be a strange and angry place. That's what I found out recently when I decided to sort the reviews by "lowest rating" first.

I was okay with the people upset over bad service and what not. But I came across a few reviews that, for lack of a better word, left me speechless in their scathing negative reviews on some of Amarillo's most iconic places. Prepare your self for plenty of head shaking and "I dunno" shrugs.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
