Prank Victim: Bed Bath and Beyond
Rage Level: Mellow
- “I’ve noticed through my retail experience that uh, the MD5# isn’t routed properly when they’re kinda trying to make their way through the checkout and they take a long time to actually, you know, SWIPE the credit card.”
- “I can kinda hear the Ho Ho’s jiggling in your esophagus”
- “Tubby lumpkins, calm down!”
- “Do you possibly want to make, like kind of mend things between us and maybe take things ‘beyond’ together if I come in in person?”
Body of content:
I used my Russell character to pull off a Bed Bath and Beyond prank call where I told the employees that my wife and I were testing out the beds when things went too far! We took things “BEYOND” and left some gross, crusty stains on the bedding, so I asked the workers to reassure me they’d change the sheets out to ease my conscience.
The first employee I spoke to was so creeped out immediately that I couldn’t get her to come back to the phone at ALL during the rest of the prank! The next guy was sassier and ready to fight back with Russell’s rude comments! Do you think the employees went and checked the sheets on their bed displays? What prank call ideas should I try on Bed Bath and Beyond next? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Pranker: ... underneath the covers and uh... I just didn't want, you know, some other like...

Pranker: I-I sorr- I know I might be catching you a little off guard with this and I know it might sound weird as hell...
Pranker: ... but, I figured if I atleast told you guys, it would be better than someone finding it.

Pranker: How long does it look like that customer is going to take? To-to kinda be done with?
Guy: Uhm, I don't know right now she has a three person line, and she's the only person in here by herself, so...
Guy: I'd say maybe like, twenty minutes?
Pranker: Okay, are-are they-are they kind of like MORE HEAVY SET customers, typically I've noticed that they take longer uh to check out.
Guy: I'm sorry?
Pranker: I-I said are the customers more on the heavy side? I've noticed through my retail experience that uh,
Pranker: the MD5# isn't routed properly when the're kind of trying to make their way through the checkout!
Pranker: And they take a long time to actually you know, swipe the credit card!
