Quick and easy.... do a screen shot of their computer... in whatever app or mode it is in... then set that as the desktop. None of the icons will work, but it will all look like it is there.

Chain all the paperclips together in their desk... this will take some time to be discovered... so no instant gratification.

Use decaff in the coffee maker.

Well, one of my supervisors is a little overworked this week and mentioned to me today that she feels like the three stooges.
Her: "I feel like the Three Stooges. There were three of them, right? Am I remembering that right?"
Me: "No, there were four. They're the four stooges. Larry, Mo, Curly, and Joe."
Her: "Oh, that's right. I can never remember."
Waiting to see how long it takes her .

But for pranks, the last one I did involved a lot of duct tape. And I discovered that duct tape has an entire website of specialty patterns and scents. Yes, there is scented duct tape.

Fill out an application for your target at a local McDonalds. State that your target is 19 years old, has their own car and prefers night shift.

I assume continuing to work there is not an issue? Otherwise, I would stay around from any pranks...

My wife took great pleasure planting this guy in my dresser. I'm going to put him into someone's desk drawer at work next week.

Oh..............there are so many possibilities.............


Fill their desk with packing peanuts.

coat their phone mouthpiece with dark greese

super glue their coffee cup to the desk.

hide small pull back kids toys behind every item locked and loaded.

sabotage their desk with pull to explode fireworks.

tape a water filled Styrofoam cup above the door so they get a face wash when they open the door.

phart cushion.....

program their phone to the fax machine such that it keeps calling them to resend the fax cause they did not get it.


rig up a heat pad to their chair, such that they get hot bunz (requires some engineering)

Program the electronic stapler to "full automatic" (I have done this and it was hilarious)

Order a dozne red roses to the sexratary and invite the wifey in for the office party at the same time.

order an exotic dancer to perform in the cubicle.

put ample heavy duty grease under the door handle of their car/bathroom handle/toilet handle/or briefcase.

I could go on.


Regards,
Crankster

Get a big plastic spider, attach a long length of fishing line. Attach a little eye hook in the ceiling and run the fishing line through it above their desk, anchored somewhere. Then lower the spider from 20 feet away, either slowly, or let it thud onto the keyboard.

Here's a lowdown machine shop prank.

Put a big sign on the tailgate of his truck that says in huge letters:

"I'm Gay and I'm Proud"

It only works if he isn't gay.

OK here are some more machine shop war tactics:

Fill his air line up with spindle oil or motor oil.

Put a glob of bearing grease on the grinding wheel.

If he keeps his work boots at work put a dead mouse in one of them. (I'm the victim on this one.)

With a pocket knife poke a hole in the top of his soft drink can just directly under the opening to drink out of. (Another I've had to learn the hard way......too many times)

And last but not least:
Tape the pieces of salmon that he left out in the break room under his toolbox and watch the gnats follow his box around the shop for a couple of weeks until he finally realizes why they are.

In a lab you can take a 1.5 mL microfuge tube, put a tiny piece of dry ice into it and roll the tube under someone's chair. It will give a really loud POP in a couple minutes.

Nothing beats firecrackers in the bathroom. Of course, I almost got fired when my coworker picked up the lit seal bomb and tossed it into the toilet.

I picked up a fairly freshly killed dead squirrel on the sidewalk outside my office at a previous job and put it, in a bag, in a coworker's drawer with the tail hanging out. Pardon the pun, but man did the fur fly when he came back to his desk. I don't know if he ever knew who did it.

If you work in a regimented, order demanding workplace, you might try this or something similar:

I was an Instructor at an Air Force pilot training base. Our day would always start with the Flight Commander reading the Operations (Ops) notes which included things that might affect flying operations and other assorted odds and ends. One of the notes kept mentioning an upcoming repaving of a common parking lot and to plan on parking somewhere else. I managed to get an additional note inserted that stated everyone in the three squadrons must get their car weighed to provide data to the Engineers prior to starting the paving and pass the weight information to the Group Commanders office. Along with his phone ringing off the hook, the guys with the big scale for weighing vehicles over at the Transportation squadron were also deluged with requests and people showing up clogging up their flow of business. Additionally their was the general beotching and complaining from my fellow minions as they dutifully complied with stupid orders from on high. The plan far exceeded expectations and provided great entertainment.

Don't tell the new guys at the shipyard not to bring lunch in a sack. Just get their attention when the seagulls swoop on it so he can see them tear it apart on the ground and eat his lunch.
