Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Great Pranks




I(Greg) enjoy playing jokes on people. I would consider myself like Jim Halpert of The Office. Some that I have played people in the last year include:
  • Auto Correct function in Excel - This is a great one. You go on to someone's computer and go to the Autocorrect funtion choice. The you set it up when they type something, like their Name, the computer automaticly changes the word to something else. Like I type "Greg" and what it turns into is "Greg is a loser with no friends" Lots of fun with lots of laughs.



  • Raising the Desk - I picked up about 8 copies of the yellow pages and placed them under each of the legs of my coworkers desk, so when he came into the office, his chair seemed to be about 6 inches lower than before.

  • Flipping the computer screen upside down - ALT + Ctrl + Down. Try it. Quick, easy, and very frustrating for the victim.

  • Secret Santa - I printed out a couple of flyers for fake Secret Santa gift exchange and put down the contact information as a guy who is very manly and would never see himself doing that. The flyers were up for a couple weeks before he noticed they were talking about him.


  • Reverse the Desk - A guy who I work with is very exact in how he likes his desk to be. It bothers him when I move a pen an inch(which I now do on purpose). When he was gone for a day, another guy and I flipped his office 180 degrees. Everything that was on his right was now on his left. The mouse was moved to the other side, the photos, the bookshelves, the filing cabinets were switched. The Keys on his keyboard were moved to spell his name. Then we swapped his photo of his wife with this photo -



I am now looking for some other ideas. Please let me know some.

Greg,
I'm glad to know that your degree has gotten you into such a sophisticated job where you can sharpen your prankster skills. All kidding aside, that does sound like fun stuff!

i'm not sure if things like this are a pro or a con to the thought of working in 3P. Ü

Ah ha ha. Greg is so funny all the time. I know I know! Hide someone's cell phone from them and then keep calling it while they search all over for it! SOOOO funny.

Greg, oh my gosh. You had me totally cracking up as I read this posting.

-Classic classic stuff. I wish I had more, but I guess I'm stuck at the "everything I think of already was done on The Office show" phase. Those were a few other good ones though. -I haven't gotten into it much at MY office yet I guess.

Hopefully you'll still see this comment. Once I played a prank on a co-worker by associating a WAV file with incoming email. I set his computer to play "Who Let The Dogs Out" when he got new mail. I also turned up the sound on his speakers. The result was hilarious because his other friends sent him mail to make it go off. When it finally did he was on the phone and he jumped (literally) out of his seat.
