June 14 2010 – Supply Brothers’ ‘Office Talk’
1. The Mouse Trick
Utilize the USB port to attach a second mouse to a neighboring coworker’s computer. This works especially well if you are sitting across from him or her. Plug in, wiggle away, and watch them squirm. Added points if you have a wireless mouse.
2. Mouse Trick Number Two
The laser mouse may have ended the era of mouse-ball stealing, but it opened up another option. Stick a few layered pieces of transparent tape on the bottom side of your friend’s mouse to really mess with its functionability. Or, tape a small Post-It note that says “Why won’t my mouse work?” over the laser.
3. Ketchup with Your Phone?
Yes, you read correctly. This is a classic trick to play on your coworker. I have actually had it done to myself, and it was quite a laugh for the whole office. Next time you go to lunch take a few extra ketchup packets. Next wait till your coworker steps away from his or her desk. Quickly place ketchup all over the ear piece of the phone. Gather your surrounding coworkers and let only them in on the prank. When your coworker returns to his or her desk, give them a ring and laugh obnoxiously.
4. Busy Computer
This is anther classic mouse trick. Under the ‘mouse settings’ go to the ‘pointer tab’ and click on the hour glass. This will switch their pointer to a busy hour glass. Suddenly your coworker’s computer is always busy!
5. Wrap it Up
Wrap your entire coworker’s desk with aluminum foil. This includes their computer, pens, pencils, folders, etc. Don’t leave anything out. The more, the funnier it will become.
6. Can You be Mine?
Sent a fake love note to a coworker from another coworker.
7. The Paper Clip
Make some copies of a paper clip. Then, put this same paper into the paper tray of your copying machine. People will go bananas trying to figure out why all their copies have a paperclip on it!
8. No Toilet Paper
Place a sign on the restroom door that reads, “The Company ran out of toilet tissue; please use your own resources.”
9. Congratulations on Your Baby
Get all the women in the office to individually speak with the President, confiding that you are pregnant. By noon, he will think that all of his female coworkers are pregnant and he will not be able to tell anyone because each asked for confidentiality.
Halloween never gets old. So why not scare the living daylights out of your friend at work. All you need is an old mailing box that is big enough for you to fit in. Next, put the box in a strategic location for scaring your victim. Some keys spots are near the elevator, break room, or near his or her cubicle. Get in the box and wait for your victim to come strolling by. Jump out and scare your victim using whatever means necessary; screaming, yelling, arm movements, etc.
