Is this a lame short story idea?

A guy hatches a plan to spook his kid brother and his friends. He gets his best buds to help him. The plan is his friend will guide in the basement while he has a Ouija session. His friend will make thing happen like things falling from a bookshelf and making thudding noises.

His friend is reluctant to play along but it's finally kicked into going along with it.

So the night goes off as planned. Thudding and tv coming on and noises on cue. But it turns out there his friend never showed because "you should not need around with that stuff."

    Not "lame", just not original. Fear of Ouija boards is as old as Ouija Boards.

    The question is : what is the moral/ the point of the story ? Anything can be a good short story if you give it meaning.
