So today my co-worker attempted to prank me. I say attempted because he really didn't do his research at all and I figured out what he'd done immediately upon returning to my desk.





I'll get my disproportionate retribution tomorrow, but now I'm curious as to what kind of office pranks you all have been subjected to or pulled on others.

I guess you could call it a prank, I put an LGBT sticker on the back of my boss's chair, who is quite homophobic, in my first month of working there. I didn't know how much he didn't like gays. He REALLY doesn't like gays. Luckily he understood it was my first month of working there and I didn't really know him that well, so he let me off with a warning.

Well, that didn't really help funny enough. I continue to put stickers on his desk to this day. I like to cover his monitor with colored smiley face stickers. I also like to put really girly stickers on his PC and desk as well. It is really funny how much he hates it. He figured out it was me about a month ago and I have stopped since he seemed quite annoyed, but that doesn't mean I won't do it again

This didn't happen to me, but someone I work with, we have two monitors and someone took her primary monitor and made it her secondary by physically moving it so we had to unplug wires and re-plug them to get her setup back and then her resolution was off. In the end, we should have just physically swap the monitors position and left the configuration as is.

I never worked in an office but I've done a lot of stuff at school. Like I once put a thumbtack on my friends chair, that was pretty funny. I once pulled out all the lead out of someones mechanical pencil and then put a really small nub on the tip to make it seem usable, also messed with the eraser by staining it with ink. I once put a sticky note and wrote "I like anal" and put it sticky side up on someones seat. I once switched peoples backpacks that are the same brand and color. I worked on computers once and did that trick with the control + alt + arrow key with people computers. In the library I used to get books on the shelf and put them in the return bin.

If you're an adult resorting to "revenge pranks" for personal satisfaction, seek help.

If you're doing it against your boss, don't worry, you'll soon have a lot of free time to seek it.

One of the guys carried a garbage bag full of water to the roof and dumped it on female coworker, but she returned the favor the next day. They called it even and ended it there.

We have a broken electric psychrometer (measures dry and wet temperature; for weather stuff). The gag is to get the new guy (who wouldn't know what it is) to take a garbage bag to the roof and get an "air sample" then take it back inside and put the psychrometer in to record. The roof is fully exposed to a runway and the busy road across it.

So one of my bosses was the kind of person who always takes everything to the extreme of worry. I got some blond hairs off a wig and left them on the floor around her workstation. That evening I was vacuuming and noted how many blond hairs were around and she freaks out about her hair falling out.

My desktop was changed to a "My Little Pony Theme." I still have it.
