My daddy told me this a few months ago, and I figured that since it was the end of the world I might as well post it. " when I (my dad) was in college, there was this friend of mine who liked nothing better than to party. He never studied, never did his housework, and was rude to his family. His parents told him that, being rapturists, they would get taken up and he would be left behind. He never listened, however, and kept going his merry way. So his family hatched out a scheme. " when the kid got home one evening, he found the house utterly empty. The water was running in the sink, food on the stove, all in all looking as if someone had just forgotten everything. On the ground were piles of clothes, looking as if they had just fallen off whoever had been wearing them. The young man was terrified, and thought 'oh no! The rapture has happened and I didn't make the cut!' " As far as I know, the guys family finally relented and showed themselves. But it was a good revenge, non?
