A goodie that I've just done at work. Go up to a colleague's desk when they're away from it and create some folders on their computer desktop titled, for example, 'Ladyboy Porn', 'Big Gay Sucking Studs', etc. Then do a screenshot, save it as a JPEG in Paint and go and delete the folders. Then right-click the desktop, and via properties change the appearance of the desktop, selecting the JPEG you've just created from wherever you saved it to. Then when they return they'll get the shock of their lives and try and delete the offending folders or drag them to the bin and nothing will happen. All other icons on the desktop will still work as the real icons sit directly atop the screenshot ones.

Worked an absolute charm. His face was an absolute picture - and still is.

Be VERY CAREFUL in doing this. Make sure the person whom you are pranking has a good sense of humor... or this could backfire very badly.

Unauthorized use of another employee's computer is probably against your employer's electronics policy... and creating or leaving sexually oriented documents of any kind could be considered sexual harassment... which all employers take VERY SERIOUSLY.

I realize it is just a gag... but you could face a reprimand or possibly be terminated from your position if your co-worker does not think it is funny.

I see what you're saying Dark Finn. But you're not supposed to actually put any sexual content on the co-worker's computer. You're just supposed to create icons with names like that.

At work?

I'd have punched your face in and then had you immediately terminated.

And I'd have good cause for both. I somehow doubt that Scotland doesn't have any "Hostile Work Environment" or "Sexual Harassment" laws ... what you're doing is a great way to end up on the street with a broken face.

*pouts* I would so do it.... =(

I mean, I'd be sitting right there, and would laugh and reach over to fix it within the first few seconds. I wouldn't leave time for any other coworkers to see it or anything...

But putting anything related to sex in ANYWAY, is sexul herrasment.

Just puttign a file named Sex, or pron is enough

I wouldn't do this at work.

But now on your bro's PC heck yeah lol. Another really good one is take a screen shot of the desktop then move everything to a file. Post the screny. Alos note you can unlock the task bar move it to the top. and set it to hide lol.

Have a sense of humour, for goodness sake. My 'victim' found it hilarious when I told him.

I'm glad things worked out for you.

Just remember to exercise caution when doing things like this in the workplace.

Cheers for the advice. I know not to do anything incredibly stupid and I knew the guy in question would see the funny side when he found out.

Good point there. I work overnight and we can get into some jokes. But I stepped over that line once. It almost cost me my job. Lucky for me my boss on the day shift knows what goes on at nights. I was lucky enough that we where able to handle it quicly, and with out the cost of either person job

Harmless fun is fine. At work, this is quite another.

I've done this to a friend of mine in our personal time/life: it's entertaining. But the workplace is fundamentally different than one's private, personal life.

I agree largely, but I do get very frustrated by people who hide behind the workplace "PC" culture. It feels too much like the annoying kids in gradeschool who would run off to tell the teacher every time someone said anything that wasn't Lisa Frank quotable. Its no wonder people hate their jobs these days.

You know, if you're afraid of loosing your job for sexual harasment, there's a way to do the same basic prank without the sexual stuff. Just take a screenshot off his desktop, hide all his folders somewhere (like in one folder), and save the screenshot as his background. the victim will try to accesss all his files but he won't be able to.

For sure, there is no reason it has to be sexual. We prank eachother at work all the time, but its a known thing amongst friends. Rule #1 of office pranking: never prank someone who isn't "in on the game". People can take things very wrong as a few have said previously. That said, I think people need more humor in their lives. Everything is way too serious nowadays.

PS - To the logical rabbit, I wasn't trying to be mean or rude. It sounded a lot more sarcastic and "off the cuff" in my head. Its hard to convey subtle emotions through the keyboard :p

Jeez, that's a little hostile, can't say I'd fancy being neighbor to you in a tedious office environment.

And, at any rate, I think physically striking a coworker would much better fit in the "Hostile Work Enviorment" category than a petty gag..

Don't worry fuctifano, we don't all take life that seriously. (I'm not implying losing a job isn't serious, I'm merely saying, lighten up!)
