The Best Professional Pranks
As we approach the Christmas season, some workers might be checking out and finding alternative entertainment for the office. HereΓÇÖs a few of the best professional pranks.
If youΓÇÖve got a lot of time on your hands and a colleague just begging for a wind-up, why not try this list of famous office pranks for a little inspiration?
The Slow Grower
To watch a prank grow and improve over time, you might try planting cress seeds in your colleagueΓÇÖs keyboard. As a teeny green sprout appears, it can be quickly gotten rid of. But it will also be replaced by 5, then 10, then 50 and before you know it your office neighbour is typing that memo in a teeny finger forest.
Do Not Cross
Nothing says ΓÇÿtake a day offΓÇÖ quite like turning up to work and finding your desk the focus of a serious crime scene. With a little chalk outlining, a lot of police tape and some imagination you too can be part of one of the most classic office pranks of all time.
ItΓÇÖs A Wrap
When it comes to completely covering your victimΓÇÖs office desk, computer, phone, files, mouse, keyboard, mug and chair the options are endless. Cling film? Bubble wrap? Wrapping paper? Toilet paper? Foil? Glue? Jelly? You might also try filling an enclosed space such as a cubicle with balloons, popcorn or foam.
Sometimes itΓÇÖs the little things that have the biggest impact. Swapping two keys on a keyboard can have a long-running and infuriating effect. In a similar vein, changing someoneΓÇÖs browser homepage to something with flashing lights or loud noises can have a real and lasting impact on both your victimΓÇÖs stress levels and the number of people affected.
Daring to Dream
For the most daring among you, thinking outside the box can produce results that will stay with your colleagues forever. A worker once replaced everything in their victimΓÇÖs office with a real live grizzly bear. Another dismantled a cubicle and rebuilt it on the beach and another covered their colleagueΓÇÖs car completely in post-it notes.
