Baby prank

Jordan, who works at Australian online fashion company Showpo, suspected that a number of her workmates weren't actually paying attention to her weekly emails, and so she decided to test her theory.

First, Jordan told her colleagues that she and her partner were expecting a baby in November.

And then, when no one responded to her baby news, she decided to go one step further: telling them that the baby had already arrived.

Finally, a small number of her workmates read the email and sent her some celebratory gifts.
