In theory, April Fool's jokes should be playful and funny for all involved. After the initial shock of the prank wears off, the person being pranked should be able to laugh and see the intentions were ultimately in good will.
However, a lot of people think they can be cleansed of their sins by labeling any manipulation or trick as a "prank" and that's simply now how it works.
AITA for refusing to talk to my brother after his April fool’s day “joke” of hiding my pain medication?
I (20F) live with my parents and older brother. I’ll be honest - I do not like him. We do not get along. He’s annoying and intruding and loud and I could go on. I try to just ignore him.
For April fools day yesterday, as a “joke,” he decided to hide the pain medication I take to deal with my periods. I have horrible periods, especially the first couple days (which yesterday was) and the pain can be debilitating and make me cry if I don’t have the pain meds to help (even then, I still have pain, I’m just able to function).
