Guy Gets Free Printer After Tricking Neighbor With WiFi Prank
If you're in the market for a new wireless printer, make sure you don't make the same mistake Blake Messick's neighbor made.
Better yet, just make sure you don't live anywhere near Blake Messick.
A story about a wireless printer is going viral after a man named Blake had been attempting to print something out on his own printer when he noticed his neighbor hadn't secured his printer with password protection.
This means Blake's neighbor's printer was accessible to anyone within range of it. Blake thought what anyone of us would have thought if we found ourselves in the same situation: He thought about epically pranking his neighbor.
However, he didn't just think about the prank. He followed through with it!
Blake Messick took to Twitter to announce he had decided to play an epic prank on his unsuspecting neighbor by printing from his unprotected wireless printer.
Apparently, Blake's neighbor totally freaked out after learning his printer had become "self-aware." He threw the printer out.
But wait, there's a giant plot twist... It turns out this is actually the cruel story about how Blake "got a free printer."
While some Twitter users urged Blake to return the printer to its owner...
...others commended Blake for his masterful finagling.
But maybe, just maybe, this means there's room for one more prank.
After all, Blake's neighbor is the one who knowingly tossed a "self-aware" wireless printer out into the cold just before the new year.
As of yet, there has been no word from Blake Messick regarding whether or not he plans to return the wireless printer to its rightful owner.
What we do know, however, is that Blake has apparently reached "God-level" on Twitter after racking up over 45,000 retweets and 58,000 likes.
He also tweeted about all of the press he's getting over his viral tweet and how he really hopes his "neighbor doesn't see it" and that it "would be pretty awkward" if he did.
You know what else would be awkward?
If millions of people found out that you never returned the "free" printer! Ah, 2017 is already shaping up to be a wild one.
