Working sucks. There’s a lot of people you probably hate because they get on your nerves. It could be your demanding boss, complaining co worker, or even the smelly person in the cubicle next to you. You know you don’t just run and tell them how much you hate them without causing trouble. But how about on April Fools day? This. This ‘holiday‘ is your day to get revenge on everyone that has ever pissed you off. It’s the day where it’s socially acceptable to torture them with pranks. However, you do need to ensure you don’t get fired in the process. So to help you out, I have 10 pranks that are good enough to satisfy your sadistic needs and will let you keep your job. A lot of these are from April Fool Zone, so kudos to their devious minds!
Where’d It Go?
Steal something from your victim that they use often. The more attached they are, the better this prank will be! Take a picture of it and leave a ransom note in the exact spot you found it. When they come back to their desk, they’ll have to bid to your needs to get it back and you’ll have a nice chuckle at their “wtf?!” face.
This is for everyone in the office. This prank is a psychological mind- fuck. Bring in a tray of delicious treats into work. Pretty innocent right? Don’t rig them or anything. Just plain, tempting treats. Write a sign that says “Happy April Fool’s Day! Enjoy!” and leave it on top or in view of your snacks. Watch people stand in front of it for minutes wondering if it’s safe to eat or not. Admit it, you’d hesitate.
Did You Say Virus?
This prank will surely freak anyone out. I’m sure it’s safe to say that anyone would be scared to have a notice pop up that tells us our computer is infected. Whether it’s a work or personal computer, our life is on this device. Well, the full instructions are on Instructables. It’s a simple but devastating prank that involves tweaking a few computer settings to get a pop up that you can customize to tell them they have a virus or you’re “watching” them. And of course, to make it real, the computer will restart shortly after they open the designated ‘virus’ file.
For this prank, it will take some time if their drawers don’t full come out. If they do, just rearrange all of them. If they don’t, remove their things and rearrange everything. I’m sure you know what their reaction is going to be: “WHERE IS EVERYTHING?!”. Well dear, you pissed me off, so I’m pissing you off back.
This is an oldie, but it’s always a classic. Some people will just always fall for it regardless of era as long as they have a laser mouse. Just get a piece of scotch tape, lay it on top of the laser, and Sharpee it black. After that it will no longer work. you’ll be able to witness your victim slapping and hitting their mouse wondering why it’s broken. Apparently abusing a mouse is better than looking under it.
Why not ‘open- sesame’? Well… Because the desk drawers aren’t going to open in this case. For this prank, pull their desk drawers forward so you can access the back and use a string to die their drawers closed. You can watch them struggle to open it. This is an annoying prank. Even I get easily agitated when my kitchen utensils drawers won’t open because a ladle got stuck.
The Scandalous Bag
This prank is quite high on the evil scale. It may even lead to reputation destruction for the victim. But you know, if you hate them enough, they so deserve it. Get any old gym bag and fill it with really scandalous or weird things. Think diarrhoea pills, provocative underwear, a few x rated magazines, and maybe some open condoms or tampons. Anything that would people people totally judge the person who owns the bag. Leave it in the office with a fake ID of your victim inside. When people find it, they’re going to have some explaining to do.
Thou Shall Not Staple
This is only effective if your victim uses their staple frequently. Every chance you get throughout the day, remove all their staples except 1 or 2 from the stapler. They will start to wonder why they have to keep refilling it so often. What is this witchcraft?!
You Shall Not Work
This is simple. Simple, but very frustrating. They won’t even know what hit them. For this prank, you simple just steal all their capped pens and glue the cap on. When you’re done, return it to their desk and watch them struggle to take their pen caps off. Oh the evil.
This is also another oldie but classic prank. This will affect everyone in the office. So if you hate everyone you work with, perfect. Get a bottle of lube and replace the hand soap with it. Everyone is going to wash their hands when they go to the washroom at one point. And trust me, they will be washing their hands for a very very long time.
Who’s your victim for April Fool’s day?
