Recent topics have got me wondering, how do you like to have fun at work? Is it a certain routine or task that you enjoy doing, the way you interact with customers, or the back-and-fourth between co-workers?
Another RHUer has been complaining that one of their co-workers is a destructive prankster, but how about some harmless workplace pranks that don't tow the line? I'd like to hear your stories.
I pulled a prank once that had my co-workers going for damn near months. It was a particularly slow shift at the gas station, and I was pretty much through with everything I could reasonably do for the night. In my boredom, I started to think of something I could do to toy with my co-workers in a harmless manner. I picked up a pad of sticky notes and inspiration hit!
I took a sharpie and wrote "LOL" on a ton of sticky notes that I began to leave in various locations around the store, both conspicuous and inconspicuous, that I knew an employee was destined to find.
I left them in paper towel dispensers, under register trays, behind monitors, in cigarette cartons, in our paperwork envelopes, in safe drop envelopes, in a stack of bills, inside the receipt compartments of the gas pumps, underneath things, places on high -- you name it.
One of my co-workers was a little annoyed with my prank, however, and even weeks later I would occasionally find a note from her to stop leaving LOL post-its everywhere. Nobody else seemed to mind though, and in fact were even more amused by the fact that so-and-so would get so flustered each time she discovered one.
