Smuggler's Blues

So, here's something I'm sure you don't hear everyday. I just smuggled a toilet into my office building. Oh, you want details?

There are several of us around the office who enjoy a good joke. When one of us is on vacation, the others are usually plotting something evil for their return. An example: My boss went on vacation a couple of months ago. We took the opportunity to fill every available space in her desk drawers and overhead cabinets with packing peanuts. As soon as she returned, well, you know...

Another one of our colleagues is out today. A coworker offered up her never-opened (and certainly never used) portable toilet bought in a fit of madness before Y2K. We will be replacing our missing coworker's chair with said toilet this evening.

And that's why I smuggled a toilet into the office building.

LOL. I wish I could see the co workers face when they return. Your office sounds like a fun place to work.

Man, why don't I have fun coworkers like that? All that was waiting for me upon my return was a note asking that I be sure to restart my computer after such a long time away. Those engineers are a laugh riot, I tell ya.

HA! The packing peanuts! TOO funny.
The toilet? Classic.
You could get one of the monter things that pops up when you open the seat cover.

That's really good! I once taped everything down on a co-worker's desk. Drawers were taped shut, phone was taped down, stapler, lamp, staple remover, binders, rolling chair taped to floor. This guy's desk was junky and I taped it all down! Heee!

LOL! That is too funny! Think of how much more productive your co-worker will be! Okay that's a gross thought and I suppose I didn't have to go there, but I did. :)

that's brilliant!
the best we did was super glue everything to someone's desk for their last day... including pens where they lay, receiver to phone, empty soda cans... ahhhh, i miss work. we've flipped people's offices/desks too... (like mirrored them, not flipped them like ut-oh rolled over)

I saw a collection of photos a while back of some office pranks and some of them were pretty good. My favorite was the group that covered everything in their co-workers cubicle with tin foil.

That is hilarious, I cannot imagine doing that at my job, but I'm sure its well worth it. By the way, my website is back up!! :)

Ah...we do things like that too! Every time we get a new person we do pranks...the last one we silly stringed in several colors EVERY thing in his office...

He was not happy with us...but we laughed!
