Ahh! The old sprouts-on-the-keyboard trick. Glad I don't work in an office.
Hey Lucia, knock off work early today and let's go play darts and have some beers and doritos. The hell with work.

These are so fun. I've seen the tin foil one before but not the rest. I always wanted to play a great prank like that.

For someone's birthday we filled their cube with balloons so they couldn't get to their seat but really that's just bubbly hippie fun, not nearly as clever as wrapping everything in newspaper!

Those are great! Although I might not think so if they'd been done to ME. I especially like the last one. Very original. Is that a chia keyboard?

I am thinking that Option 31 is a good way for me to keep plaster dust off my stuff. And, it's ultra-shiny. Always a plus.

Wahoooo! Lucia you're my hero today! I am definitely going to use those ideas!

I have a friend that wraps every gift in layer upon layer of duct tape, wrapping paper, bubble wrap, more duct tape...you get the picture...

I had some students who came in and used up all my post-it notes, labelling every single thing in the room. It was really funny.

All we ever did was tape the phone handle to the receiver so the person could not answer the phone.

I was tempted once to fill someone's desk drawers with chocolate pudding.

I have seen this a few times, but I smile every time - I would love to pull one of those off!

My department has covered my entire office (floor, ceiling, desk, etc) with postits.
We've also covered someone's cubicle with tinfoil, another's with pink wrapping paper...
Unfortunately, it doesn't make up for the jerks that sit in those cubicles...

LOL.. I loved those.. I think if I found the sprouts in my keyboard, I would munch them down. Is that bad?
