Translink Transfers Used for Evil

For some reason my roommate has been saving all of his bus transfers for the last couple of years. Until recently they were in a neat stack on his desk. I made it a point to always comment on how much of a dork he was for saving them for no particular purpose. Yesterday he found a use for them. He walked into my room and said “Dane, I want to give these to you”. They he proceeded to throw them into the air, causing my entire room to be showered in bus transfers. I laughed and complimented him on finally finding something to do with them.

My question to you is this: How should I get him back? As of this writing, the transfers are back in neat little stack on MY desk and he is away at work for the next several hours. I was thinking of possibly hiding them all over his room so that he will keep finding them for the next couple of weeks. If you have a better idea, please let me know in the comments.

UPDATE: I scattered a few around his room and set the bulk of them up on top of the edge of the door. The idea was that when he opened the door they would rain down upon him and revenge would be mine. He was supposed to be home from work around 9pm. I waited up until midnight so that I could see the reaction and then gave up, convinced he would not be home until morning. It turns out he had actually been working the entire time (12 hours) and he came home around 1am, after I went to sleep. He told me that he opened the door and saw the few scattered on the floor and was a bit choked because he was so tired and didn’t want to clean them up. The ones hiding on top of the door didn’t fall until he closed his door, AFTER cleaning up the first ones. Then he was really pissed off, but at the same time amused by how well it worked. Mission accomplished.

    Do you have seperate bathrooms? If so fill his bathtub with about five inches of water and throw them in. They’ll be nice and gross by the time he returns.

    That’s awesome, but unfortumately we don’t have seperate bathrooms.

    Put them in a box. Put the box on the top of the door to his room and close his door halfway. Then when he throws it open the box and the tickets will snow from the sky.

    I say go for the food. A single bus transfer carefully inserted into his pre-made lunch sandwich each morning would definitely garner a response. Presuming he’s not a sandwich fan, there are other equivalent tactics, I imagine.

    I hadn’t thought of food. Way to think outside the box. I’ve decided I want to go for big bang style revenge so I’m using Jeffery’s suggestion of putting them above the door. How can I go wrong with such a classic prank? I didn’t need to use a box because it turns out that two stacks of about 100 transfers will stay nicely on top of the door all by themselves. The only thing that could foil the plot is that they are somewhat visible as you approach the door. I have a feeling that, since he won’t be looking for them, it should still work. Only time will tell.
