    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. :D

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

    Any of you act as immature as we do? :rolleyes:

    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.

    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.

    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.....

    Old thread revived.

    Today I wrote on the board that two people called in sick then I wrote all kinds of times tests on the work board.

    My boss comes in and says, "call Melanie in." I forgot and asked him why. He said because we're two people down. I then told him it was an April Fools joke. LOL

    Yesterday was the 6th anniversary of the worst April Fool's joke ever created by mankind. It started in November 2008 and it is still going.

    My two favorite practical jokes are.... Poking a small hole in someone's drink can around the lip. They take a sip and it dribbles down their chin. The second joke is very slightly unplug the cord from a work telephone so when someone calls it yanks out. Watching them frantically put it back in is hilarious.

    One of my favorites was done by US astronaut David Wolf (who is from Indy). In the mid-nineties he was a crew member on a Russian space station. As a part of prepping him the high medical commission gathered to give him vision tests. He entered the room, said hello, and went straight into the wall.

    With the amount of screwing around I do on a regular basis, not playing any jokes on my coworkers is priceless. One guy asked me what I did to him, and I truthfully said nothing. He was constantly watching me over his shoulder, I just smiled and enjoyed his suspicion.

    Another guy put a six inch Halloween spider in my weld helmet when I set it down. Didn't work. Luckily I knew his lunchbox and stashed it in there for an appetizer. I get a text from the guy that sat next to him at lunch: he screamed like a little girl. :cool:

    At a previous job it was considered funny to place a blob of grease under a door handle or on a shifter knob. But the best was one Friday C arranged things so that Rs truck was the first in the garage and his was the second blocking Rs truck in. C then greased the door handle, shifter, steering wheel, air brake knobs, he may have even greased the radio knobs of his own truck. Then went on vacation.

    Monday morning R has to move Cs truck to get his out and gets repeatedly slimed all the time thinking someone was after C when all time it was C getting R.
