Default April Fools!!!

Well, I guess we are a little immature where I work, not to mention mostly unsupervised. Well, we are pulling pranks on each other like crazy. One phlebotomist told the other she was putting in her resignation in the morning. The other one is moping around like he just lost his best friend. She's going to tell him the truth after a while.

I went to get a pop and when I came back the mouse on my computer wouldn't work. It took me several minutes to find that they had stuck a sticker over the 'eyeball' of the mouse.

When the supervisor went to leave at midnight, someone hid her keys while she was in the bathroom. We found her crawling on the floor of her office looking for them.

I'm sure there'll be more to follow.

Any of you act as immature as we do?

I thought about setting off the Tsunami Sirens around midnight, but that was already done a couple of weeks ago.

No "fun and games" like that where I work. But then, it is a quasi-military operation in a highly secure area. About the only thing I'd see them pulling is a sitewide announcement that we're being sent home early due to mission activity. But that most likely wouldn't happen because everyone would be checking the flight manifest to see if it was true or not.

The real April Fools will come next Friday if/when the government shuts down. I guess I can used some non-paid vacation though...

Google is up to their yearly hijinks. Every year they do something special for April Fool's. This year they are taking advantage of all "your body is the controller" video games and saying they developed software for Gmail to work the same way.

I chuckled. They put a lot of work into it every year, so I always look forward to what they turn out.

Watched the Vid by the "Motion Specialist" this morning and got a good laugh.

Always Fun!

One to get someone with.

Go to their computer and pull up their desktop then look for the print screen button on the keyboard. Hit it.

open Paint and hit ctrl +v and paste it into paint. Save it as a JPG.

Now go to the desktop

Right-click on the desktop and open the "Arrange Icons By" sub-menu.

In the sub-menu, click "Show Desktop Icons" to uncheck it.

Now right click the desktop again and click properties and change the desktop to the screen shot you took.

Now right click on the tool bar at the bottom. Then select Properties. In the top section check auto-hide task bar. and your done. It looks normal but nothing they click on will work. Watch them for 10 minutes click on the desktop and being frustrated that nothing is working.

That makes for so much fun.....

Someone put cling film over the toilet bowl and unscrewed the light bulb. Lucky for me I was only taking a p"ss.
