Twitter user @HarvinthSkin decided to give a sales associate as his local shoe store a heart attack with a silly prank. All over the internet, people are sharing the prank and sending their well-wishes to the poor worker who experienced a moment of pure panic!

Don't worry too much about the unfortunate sales employee, however—it turns out he was given a raise as a consolation shortly thereafter!

The owner of the shoe store made clear to Skin that his employees were not to be messed with.

On Twitter, people loved the sales clerk's reaction to Skin running out of the store.

Some thought they may have reacted differently in the same situation...

But everyone got a good laugh out of the innocent prank.

The incident also gave us some priceless reactions!

Remember, everyone: it's important to try before you buy!

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
