Default Fun Things To Do At Work

Ok... I am soooo BORED at work! So I am coming up with a list of
FUN THINGS TO DO AT WORK .... please feel free to add... the more ridiculous and funny the better!

Here goes... FUN THINGS TO DO AT WORK when you are BORED!


Fun Things to do at work(to brighten up a dull day and worry your workmates!)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------


1. Phone someone in the office you barely know, leave your name and say, "just called to say I can't talk right now. Bye".

2. To signal the end of a conversation, clamp your hands over your ears and grimace.

3. In the middle of a meeting, suddenly shout out "YAHTZEE".

4. Walk sideways to the photocopier, crab style.

5. Babble incoherently at a fellow employee then ask, "Did you get all that, cause I don't want to repeat it".

6. Press the "no cup option" on the coffee machine, kneel down and drink directly from the nozzle.

7. At the end of a meeting, suggest that for once, it would be nice to conclude with the singing of the National Anthem (extra respect if you actually launch into it yourself).

8.Walk into a very busy person's office and while they watch you with growing irritation, turn the light switch off & on 10 times.

9. For an hour, refer to everyone you speak with as "Barbara"

10. After every sentence, say 'Mon' in a really bad Jamaican accent. As in, "the report's on your desk, Mon". Keep this up for 1 hour.

11.In a meeting or crowded situation, slap your forehead repeatedly and mutter, "Shut up dammit, all of you just shut up".

12.Carry your keyboard over to your colleague, and ask, "do you want to trade?"

13.Come to work in army camoflauge and when asked why, say, "I can't talk about it".

14. Hang a 2 foot long piece of toilet paper from the back of your trousers, and act genuinely surprised when someone points it out.

15. Run across the office, tag someone and yell "YOU'RE IT!"

16. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.

17. Page yourself over the intercom. Don’t disguise your voice.

18. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

19. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it “IN.”

20. Develop an unnatural fear of staplers.

21. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

22. In the memo field of all your checks, write “FOR SEXUAL FAVORS”.

23. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

24. Put mosquito netting around your cubicle at work. Play a tape of jungle sounds all day.

25. When someone says, “Have a nice day,” tell them you have other plans.

26. Write “Out to lunch” on your forehead.

27. During lunch break, write a short story using alphabet soup.

28. Start conversations with the words, “Did you ever wonder why…”

29. Burn all your waste paper while eyeing your coworkers suspiciously.

30. Buy a complete set of Transformers. Play with them loudly. If people comment, tell them with a straight face, “There’s more to them than meets the eye.”

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A FUN DAY AT WORK...

Please feel free to add to this list :lol:

I don't know why this reminded me of this story I am about to tell, but...

...most of my friends live in another town over an hour away, so usually when we hit up bars and I am bored I like to play a game where I completely make-up a whole new identity and life for myself.

It usually starts when I am talking to a girl and ask where she is from (my friends live in a college town, and I am only 22 so it usually safe to say that the girl in which I am visiting with is from out of town, as well) and then reply with "That's where I am from." I start asking her if she knew so-and-so, and I mention that he is my next door neighbor or my best friend growing up, yada, yada, yada, etc.

My favorite identity has been Carl Peterson, because (no offense to you women on this board) I have yet to meet a woman who has connected his name to that of the Chiefs' President.

It is a fun game to play until they catch on or my friends blow my cover by referring to me as Toby.

Toby,
That is funny when I was in college I did that all the time. I went to Penn State so with 40,000 people it was pretty safe to say I rarely had to worry about bumping into them again... but there's always the chance that you might... and boy is that interesting. When I was a senior a bunch of sorority sisters and I pretended to be freshman and crashed some frosh parties... told all sorts of tall tales. Needless to say one day when we were at one of our sorority social some boys that we had messed with were there as pledges. They caught on rather quick that we were no freshman and ended up serving us drinks all night as part of their pledge duties... it was quite fun.. yet completely awful of us to have lead them on. They really thought we were some naive freshman... :finger: naughty naughty... :lol:

Getting caught was always half the fun, because I always figured that I would never see these people ever again.

I usually just threaten a kid with death.

Always helps to reduce my stress.

^ got to go with that one Buckeye


You could also go around repeating the one ring poem from Lord of the Rings to everyone near by.

Open a soda can take one sip and leave it on someones desk or work area then grab another and do the same, over and over again.

I played golf once. While everyone else was trying to hit holes in one, I hit a person. Let me tell ya that was so much more fun. I didn't know you were supposed to yell Four, I was to busy mumbling "I'm gonna miss him, alittle bit more to the left"

Hang signs on the new guys back... LOTS of signs.... and put nasty things in his pockets. It only counts if you don't get caught and then he goes on the lot to grab a consumer. Shoe-polish on the phone receiver....cut the tip off his pen so he gets that ink action going on...

All kinds of good stuff.

I was the master of hanging signs on backs when I was on a ship in the Navy. Funny... s'times I would put the vulgarist signs (like: "I gargle cum for quarters")... Once I put a sign on my LPO's (boss) back that read "I'm the b1tch at home too" He went into the CO's stateroom and left... the Captain stopped him on the way out, read it, and NEVER told him!! :lol: he came back and we were laughing at him. That was a cool CO.
So after all those funny ones and vulgar ones, guess which one got me in trouble and made me stop? This HT (an engineer) came up to our space and I put a sign on his back that read "I wish I was an OS" OS is Operations Specialist (thats what I was)... anyway, he wore the sign back down to his engineering spaces and everyone laughed at him and he got "offended" and reported it, so they told me to stop. What a little pu$$y...

That's funny. Some people are just lame and sensitive and can't take a joke! LOL! But that is hysterical! I'm surprised you didn't get in more trouble for putting the sign on your LPO's back! I could see him feeling offended by that and lashing out at you. I guess all in all you were lucky to get by as long as you did without gettign in trouble! LOL!

babe... good stuff...

A few additions:

31...Leap up from crowded meetings unexpectedly yelling 'diarrhea and head for bathroom; watch everyone jump out of your way...

32...Store your son's ant farm collection in the corporate coffee room...

33...Refer frequently to your bosses' wife by name while you talk on the cell phone and hope he overhears you...

34...Add laxative tablets to boiling coffee urns (helps when combined with #31)...

35...Send a wideband e-mail to as many people as you can think of and title it: What To Do When You Are Infected.

My fav though is making Brownies with Xlax in them and putting them in the break room for all to eat.

being in IT, I have found the best way to get at people is to mess with their computers.

always remember, the simpler, the better!

(some require more access/privilege than others)

-put a small strip of tape over someone's mouseball. watch them frustratedly try to use it.

-very slightly unplug someone's network cable so the link light goes out. laugh haughtily as IT arrives, plugs the cable in and walks away pissed

-if someone has an older keyboard, switch a few keys around. they will notice immediately, but watch them try to remember where they go!

-setting the "marquee" screensaver in windows to naughty things is always fun. such as "i am not at my desk because i am stealing office supplies in the basement", "hi, my name is ____ and i think my boss is a jerk", etc.

-change someone's mouse sensitivity to super-high or switch it to left-handed for the button controls

-place a blank floppy in the drive. wait for them to reboot or startup. laugh heartily as IT shows up, pulls the floppy and walks away pissed
