Let them know about your prank whenever you choose to and have a good laugh together!
2. Tell Them That They Had Called Your Before
This is one of the simpler pranks that you can try out. For this, you just have to call your friend and when they ask that why you’ve called them act confused and tell them that it is them who have called and not you.

When they ask who is calling them, don’t answer them and keep on with your questions. Tell them that you got to catch up with them since it has been long that you’ve seen each other. When they start asking questions give them elaborate details about how you two know each other and get them to play along.
4. Pretend That You’re the Principal
