Best Office Practical Jokes

In my office a couple years ago, someone tried to start a practical joke war on people, and unfortunately I was the victim of one of his practical jokes. After that he leaned that payback is a bitch when over a period of 8 years I delighted in doing the following to said individual:
1. Listing his truck for sale for a low low price on Craig’s list. Included his phone # and the information that he worked night shift so it was easiest to reach him between the hours of 11pm and 5 am.
2. Bought “the clapper” off of amazon, set the sensitivity level to max and plunged in his computer. Would walk by his office and accidentally drop things.
3. Zip tied a harmonica to his undercarriage on his truck.
4. Took the bottom off his office chair and inserted one raw shrimp, and the re assembled.
5. Grabbed a bunch of his buisness cards, wrote “sorry I accidentally, hit your car” and would randomly leave them under people windshield wipers at Walmart.

Anyone have any other suggestions of what I can do in the future or other previous similar stories?
All of those are pure gold hahahahaha

I might have blown up something like 1,163 balloons and put them in my bosses office when he was off for a few days....left Siren/light switches on, hole punches in AC vents, nothing as mean as putting OC spray on things....that’s just evil!
Not when it’s an every day tool. You’ll kill somebody with a capacitor before you will with OC. I’ve never even considered an electricity-based scenario, to include tasers of all sorts...too much risk...and yes, I’ve been tased before in a training session. Ain’t gonna go there.

In the fire service we always pranked probies and newbies.

One place we sent the young female trainee off to admin to find a set of Fallopian tubes.

Some trainees got to stir the tank in the engine and tanker to keep it fresh.

We had an assistant chief who hated carrots...someone put carrots in his gear locker...he didn’t run a call for a week until someone took them out.

Once we set a trainee off to a neighboring department looking for a left handed hose stretcher and called the other department so they were in on it.

Perhaps not practical but...

At our site - probably the only intel site in the world featured on a beer - there was a kid that fancied himself a ladies man. Always bragging about his conquests.

On a mid shift, they posted a note on the internal network shared page: "So and so is pulling train tonight from midnight to 0400. Sign up for your time." On this network everyone could see the pages, so everyone either saw or was alerted to check out the frustration as the kid kept trying to sign up and failing. Finally, he got a slot at 0300.

He shows up at the appointed time. The lady says "I have to visit the ladies room so you get undressed and we will start when I get back." So the kid gets undressed and waits. The door is kicked open and the biggest, baddest, looking guy on the shift steps in and yells "Where is the so and so who has been sleeping with my woman?" The kid hops up and runs out, just missing a clumsy attempt to stop him. They took the kids clothes to the MP desk and left them. The rest of the night as people went on break, they would yell out "Hey, he's over here!" They finally told him to get his uniform at the MP desk just 0500.

The kid quieted down for about a week.

I have been "taser grenaded" where you pull the cartridge, start a discharge cycle and toss the taser into the car of someone (me in this case). I grabbed it and held it to me leg for a second or so to make it show a use cycle on his next discharge history download

At a military academy, our company officer rep was from the rival school. Night before the day before the big game, we moved his entire office into the communal toilet. He was a good sport about it and worked out of there all day, but it kinda backfired because he required us to ask permission to enter and then wouldn't let us use it.

In our instrumentation shop, when someone took vacation, they'd find an electrolytic capacitor had been wired across the AC power switch inside their work bench when they returned... About as loud as a twelve gauge...
Hilarity would ensue...
In my experience, Tantalum caps are the loudest.

This was years ago - late 70's. Someone got the personal phone number for Madalyn Murray O'Hair. That probably doesn't mean much to most people now, but she was a radical atheist "activist" back in the day when that was very unpopular. One of the guys would spend 2 or 3 hours at lunch every day - usually in a strip club, always with drinks, and always paid for by some vendor. He wasn't always generous about inviting others to go with him, so someone sought revenge. He was an expert in his field (pipeline coatings) and would get tons of calls from all over the country, and so there was always a stack of phone messages for him to return. They slipped a message into the stack, marked "Urgent", and with O'Hair's number. When this drunk called her and insisted he was returning her call, she responded with one of the longest strings of obscenities ever produced. I think he called her back several times believing there was a misunderstanding.

O'Hair was murdered some years after that in a very bizarre story. Google it sometime.
