I wanted to create this thread to ask Chewers about any office/workplace pranks they've pulled or have pulled on them. Also, I'm looking for ideas.
The only pranks I've done over my years with the current company I'm at is that I've taken peoples coats and shrink wrapped them, or security wrapped them or put them in security hard cases and hung them up. We took our GM's company shirt and hung it up inside the warehouse. I wasn't a part of this one but some home theatre guys put the mobile managers car up for sale on Kijiji. I wouldn't do that one since it involved them putting his cell number on the internet.
My prank that I'm known for (even the GM at my new store was aware of it before I started there) is that I "accidentally" dropped a 52" TV onto my GM in the warehouse when getting it done. The box was empty and it took awhile to lure him into the warehouse and even get him to stand where I needed to stand. He even tried to catch the TV! It was only until he picked it up did he realize that the box was empty.
I'm currently in the process of a new prank that involves help from my manager and another employee who takes smoke breaks. We plan getting the keys to an employees car (he leaves his keys lying around constantly) and we'd move his car to the lot next door. The guy who smokes, when he sees said employee next, would say, "hey, didn't you just leave?" "what?" "i saw your car leave. I was out for a smoke and was wondering why you'd be leaving early." And said employee would freak out. Which he will. He's a freaker. We'd then have a whole story of how my manager found some keys and left them on the desk at the front door for Smoker Employee to watch incase someone reported missing keys. But then he'd say he got over run by customers and someone must have swiped them! Fun times.
When I worked at a dinner theatre, I heard of a prank where someone had put a piece of fish behind another employees gas cap door cover and it started to rot. The guy had no idea what the smell was until he went to fill up a week later. Apparently someone else had layered pieces of left over beef on another employees windshield in the summer time. That one was semi-dangerous because I guess it took awhile for the beef grease/gravy grease to works it way off the windshield.
So, with that, any pranks? Any ideas? I don't want people getting hurt obviously. I've often thought of shoving a pie into my current GM's face during a staff meeting. Come up behind and him BAM. I'd need backup on it though.
