Work can be very boring sometimes with nothing interesting going on but those boring days can be spiced up with a few brilliant office pranks. Here are a few brilliant office pranks you could try. Trust me, your colleagues are going to love (or hate you) for this.
1. Discount Sale Anyone?
Okay, so what’s that thing that your colleague whom you want to pull a prank on can’t do without? Is it their beautiful car or very expensive mobile phone? Well, here is what you would do, you should look for a magazine where you can place an advert in the classified ads section (or use a classified ads website) and then put a picture of your colleagues’ priced possession for sale at a very ridiculous price.
You could sell their latest iPhone at $100. Then include in the advert that people who are interested in buying those things can only call within working hours (when you would be in the office with your colleague). Now watch your colleague’s face when they start getting dozens of calls from prospective buyers.
2. Alien Takeover
Well, this would only work if the person you are playing a prank on is not really a tech-savvy person. Otherwise, it would only take them few seconds to figure out what is happening and then ruin the prank. For this prank, what you should do is to wait till your colleague steps out of the office, and then connect a wireless mouse to their computer. When they are back in the office, you should start using your mouse to remotely control their computer. You could play music, display pictures and just watch your colleague battling with what they would think to be an alien invasion of their computer.
3. Salty Coffee, Sugary food
When everyone is out of the office, look for the office sugar jar and replace the contents with salt and then replace the salt with sugar. Stand on the side and watch your colleagues face when they take a sip of their salted coffee.
4. Possessed Printer
For this prank, you would remove the normal printing papers from your office printer and then load it with papers with alarming images printed on it. You could spice it up a bit by loading it with papers bearing funny photos of your colleagues.
5. Happy ‘Not My’ Birthday
This is very easy to pull off, just buy a piece of cake with your colleagues name boldly written on it and place it in the office fridge. You could add a sticker that says “Person’s birthday cake, do not eat” Well, everyone at work who sees the cake would say happy birthday to your colleague who would just be irritated because it’s not their birthday and they have to keep explaining to everyone who comes over to wish them a happy birthday.
6. Your Remains?
This is a very good prank to play on the office secretary or receptionist. Just give them a number of a funeral home, tell them it’s a customer’s they have to call and the customer’s name is ‘Myra Maines’ and then watch call a funeral home asking for their remains.
