Office Pranksters

On an ongoing basis for the last few weeks, I have been scaring the shit out of my co-workers by randomly either smacking walls, ledges, or the windows to their offices while they're deep in thought. It's been VERY fulfilling and I've been getting a MAJOR kick out of it. Don't ask me why, I just feel the need to break up the monotony of the accounting life. They've been doing it to me for months, so I've been dishing out paybacks.

Today, they ganged up on me. They conspired. They plotted. I knew it would only be a matter of time...

They had one of the "innocent bystander" techs call me, saying he couldn't find his sign-in/password for the remote kiosk they all have to sign into to work on things at one of the grocery chains we service. "Sure, no problem, I'll get those to you as soon as I can," I said. JUST as I was going to hang up the phone, one of the guys BLASTS an airhorn into my office, while the other has the camera ready to catch the look on my face. I jumped about 10 feet and nearly peed my pants. Luckily the picture didn't come out, or I'm sure the shit would be on YouTube by now.


They got me not once, but TWICE.

Okay...BATTLE! It was (and still is) on like Donkey Kong, mofos!

I waited, I was sweet as pie to them ("oh yeah, y'all got me good, I asked for it, ha ha ha, yeah, that'll teach me, blah blah blah.")

I went around randomly scaring the shit out of them this afternoon...AGAIN.

THEN, they greased up the handset of my phone with hand-sanitizing gel and proceeded to call me, just as they were going into a meeting in the conference room so I couldn't really say much. Assdorks.

Bad idea. I found out who the mastermind behind THAT was, and promptly went to his office to pour a boatload of salt into his water glass. Unfortunately he left right after the meeting, so I might just have to do it again tomorrow when he goes to lunch.

Anyone have any other great ideas? We just got new office furniture, or I'd glue everything down. I know it's all juvenile but MAN it sure gets great laughs. It's gonna be a great month.
Treble April Fools Day

You wouldn't happen to be working with three guys named Larry, Curly and Moe would you? :)

I'm glad you're in a good mood.

Cork ~ a long time friend recently gave me an inspirational book and obviously it's had a positive affect on me. Let me tell ya, these guys may just as well be named Larry, Curly & Moe. One of them is even bald! LMAO!

Black ink on the phone earpiece, but only if the phone is black.

Sending random emails to the entire company from the person's computer when they go to the bathroom and forget to lock it. The emails should be about how the particular person doesn't know where the bathroom is on their floor and they would like help finding it, or something bizarre like that. Trust me, it's hilarious.
