Practical Jokesters

I have developed a theory over the past month and a half of my debut in the adultish-professional world.

The Illusionistic Theory of Selective Adulthoodism: there is no such thing as a transition from child to grown-up. Rather, with age and experience, one simply becomes more and more capable of discerning when situations demand a stiff, boring bloke. The rest of the time, they are free to continue being the REAL them.

I will now describe my visual observations in a highly scientific and intelligent manner.

At work the other day, after assisting a customer like the diligent little worker bee that I am, I turned around to find that my cell phone had been completely saran-wrapped and placed on the counter behind me, and my adultish-aged coworker leaning against the counter with an ear-to-ear grin on his face. Naturally, after freeing my 4S from its plastic captivity, I threw the remains, along with a note that formally declared war, at his noggin.

That same day, another coworker decided to mess with MY computer. Apparently, with the proper strokes of a keyboard, you are able to flip the display on the screen completely upside-down. And apparently, putting tape on the bottom of one’s mouse interferes with its functionality.

This is what I get for being the sole female in a workplace full of non-females.

Naturally, I must seek revenge from these quipsters. This is war. I am the alpha.

I now extend to you, dear reader, an invitation to provide me with pranks of equal value to inflict upon the enemies.

Please leave your suggestions in the comments box below. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Over and out.

  1. So sad that you got only one idea in comments. Umm, to get back in a similar manner, you could mess up(rather, hide and prevent access to) their disk drives. So, when they try to access “C:\” they’ll be dumbfounded by the error message. I can bet that the first tech guy they call will get confused as well. Google search ‘gpedit.msc hide disk’

    The most serious offense, easily reversible though, can be to erase their bootloader. They won’t be able to boot their computer at all…..not without your help.


  2. Secretly swap the coffee for decaf for a few months then swap it back to caffeinated & watch everyone go crazy on caffeine. Simple, but effective!
