Your best April's Fools Day pranks at work?

By robo_dev ·
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.

My best one (kind of?) isn't work related

Because, really, the joke was on me.

Ten years ago, I was nearly two weeks overdue with my second child. I woke up around 3:00 am on April 1 and decided to wake my husband up and tell him I was in labor. I was going to let him get dressed, get the suitcase, blah blah blah, then tell him the truth. Well, I fell back asleep while planning it out and around two hours later..well, I was in labor.

So the joke was on me.

Today is my son's 10th birthday.

Just tell her to not be such a sissy

by jdclyde In reply to so what your saying is...

and you will go after the game is over! If she were to scamper off to get you another beer, it would get her mind off of things!

Believe me! You do NOT want to fall into the trap of some woman telling you what to do and when to do it!

spoken like a true divorced man!

JD isn't known for his ability to get along with the owners of
"mommy parts". It might be because he has a thing for show
tunes but that could just be a rumor.

the word "Romantic" is just totally lost on you, isn't it?

Not in your vocabulary, and I bet you have trouble spelling it too.

I bet you even think "wooing" is what you do going down a fairground ride.....
