that you lived to tell about?
Of course at work you have to balance humor with keeping your job. Here's one that I did some years ago.
I made some signs and posted them on all the doors to the IT offices:
Fire Sprinkler Test Today
Notice: At 2PM there will be a required test of the building fire sprinkler system. Please be sure to remove any papers or other items from your desk and work area that may be damaged by water. It is recommended that you cover your computer, keyboard, and printer with plastic bags that are being provided by the support center. Please call the support center to arrange for a representative from your department to get the bags for your work area. Thank you for your cooperation.
Word has it that two people called to ask about getting their bags, and one help desk worker was injured slightly when he fell off his chair laughing.
