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.

The MALE perspective on child birth

by jdclyde In reply to same, ditto, likewise....

When I look around and see intellegent women with more than one child, (excluding the lovely and intellegent GG of course) I HAVE to conclude that child birth is PLEASURABLE. If it REALLY hurt as bad as women would have us believe, why would there not be more single kids around? :0

It is a conspiracy, I say. A conspiracy!

Women just PRETEND that it hurts so they can get false sympathy from guys, and they milk it for all it's worth!

Due to 80mph winds and the prospect of roads shut and debris all over on the way home, I have to leave now.

Please deal with this ^^^ as you see fit.

I only have one

by ganyssa In reply to same, ditto, likewise....

but I only went the first 15 hours without drugs. After that, I was all for chemical enhancement. It didn't really improve the next 21 all that much. Thirty-six hours is too long to do anything, even things that feel good.
