The story of Outlook Reminders ruining a surprise

So, there was a surprise party for a co-worker the other day. They went all-out, even getting his wife.

Another co-worker was the designated person to shuffle the victim into the conference room.

Now, the invitation was sent via an outlook email invitation. So apparently the surprise was ruined about 15 minutes before the surprise when an Outlook reminded popped up on the projector in the meeting attended by both co-workers.
