Short Timer Syndrome

T-minus 18 days till I'm done working here...

I'm thinking of creative ways to prank and otherwise torment my co-workers. I have, so far, taken more subtle means of mental frustration (much like the chinese water torture). Every morning I come in and put a few M&Ms on my co-workers keyboard. First day was 2, Second day was 5, Third day was 15, I hope to eventually get up to several bags. Why? If for nothing else to confuse him into asking the very same question "why does someone keep putting these damn things on my keyboard? What purpose could this possibly serve?"

Your creative ideas are warmly welcome

Re: Short Timer Syndrome

Scotch tape

On the receiver of the phone of on the ball of the mouse.

I did a coworkers mouse everyday and everyday he would check his mouse first. One day I decided to mix it up.

He came in checked his mouse and no tape so he tried using it. Hmmm wonder how it works if its not plugged in

Took him a while to figure out it was unplugged

Re: Short Timer Syndrome

Scotch tape on the bottom of the mouse, and also over the mic on the phone.

Find someone who is adamitly Bush of Kerry, and tape their car shut by pasting the oposite candidates propoganda all over the car (happened to our COO today).

My dad and the guys he worked with decided to put a rainbow sticker (forgot the saying) on their chiefs car. Took him 2 weeks to finally find it and only cause someone asked a question about it

Re: Short Timer Syndrome

Another one I like is if you guys use the chairs that go up and down..... jam a pen under the arm that makes it move and watch people croak when they go to sit and it goes all the way down

There are a few funny ones here

Re: Short Timer Syndrome

I considered carefully laying down plastic bags down the hallway and then putting lawn sod and creating a mini golf course throughout the office.

Re: Short Timer Syndrome

back in college at night we would have 2 buses driving around campus and one person sitting in the office, one night me and the guy in the office decided to screw with the other guy driving. so we weren't running on a schedule just staying opposite each other saying when we were ready to go and since he was a rookie he wasn't very fast so I had to wait when I got to my stop for him to get to his so I just kept letting him think I was doing that but I took 2 loops to catch up to him and pulled up behind him. He laughed at that but then later I had the office guy in my bus and dropped him off at one stop with a handheld radio (so the other guy would still think he was in the office) and he hid in a doorway and I called and said he should check his bus for leaking oil because I saw some at one stop and it wasn't my bus. whenhe got out the office guy ran into his bus and took off with it. He said he started running up the side of the bus banging on it for them to stop then a few minutes later he realized it was him. Only another driver would be able to just jump right in and go because its not easy to figure out how to get it moving. shifting into drive is easy (push the D button on the shifter box, push button electronic shifter) but the parking brake is on the floor on the left side of the seat.

it was so funny and not even the funniest prank we did.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Short Timer Syndrome

are you within view of this coworker when he discovers the joyous events bestowed upon him?

scotch tape over the phone is the one I liked, shipping tape is easier to do it with though and more effective.

Sometimes I liked to bring in old stuff for co-workers, you know - cause I'm a nice guy. They cant refuse it, if they do you just leave it in there and say "well think about it, if you don't want it just let me know or....throw it away if its really that bad" and due to human nature and you're overwhelming kindness, most people just hang onto the **** forever. Some were wise to the plan, and they found it even funnier to help me purvey it onto other employees . Example is someone would ask someone else if they knew a guy with a rototiller..they'd send them to me,"I think he does.." then I'd say I didn't have/know anyone, but I do have some old gardening tools they could use or have if they needed them. They'd kindly refuse but due to my lack of understanding, some rusty old junk would be in their office the next am. Typically you could leave it there for 2 days before they'd come visit and discuss/reclarify the situation. At which time you state that you are more then willing to help them out, they can keep it as long as they want. Be friendly, it helps. Typically by day 4 they are carrying some piece of it around and trying to bring it back to you (not all of it, as that would be rude) but some component, saying they really don't need it. I'd just tell them that I was going here/doing this tonight but I'd bring in a bag for the stuff tomorrow or a tarp for my trunk and take it home then. Then I'd forget, but then the miracle - it sits in there office for so long they decide they may have a use for it, and low and behold you might get some back - but I tell you it works.

My record is 3.6 years with a rack full of MCSE (NT 4.0) manuals, and none of the systems were even NT.

My shortest record was 2 days, and that was a half-eaten sandwich I left in an employees cooler that I left for him there because I thought it was a refrigerator (silly me ), and because he worked late nights. He did give it back to me though at least instead of just chucking it - so I get some points for that.
