Here's something I've been doing for over ten years.  Once in a while I bring a box of Cracker Jacks to work for a snack.  There's another guy who has been working at the same place for about that long.  I don't know him well.  I picked his name pretty much at random.

Whenever I have Cracker Jacks, I put the little Cracker Jacks toy in a new interoffice mail envelope and send it to him.  He's gotten probably about a hundred of these little doodads in the interoffice mail over the years with no idea where they are coming from.

Yes, I'm easily amused.

He's probably totally paranoid by now. Thinks he has a secret admirer/stalker.

P&B I'm gonna send you something and you wont know who its from....

My employees and I liked to joke around a lot.  On pricing stickers a couple of the kids found that they could put sayings on the stickers.  I warned them not to fool around as someone may find one and not be happy about it.
One night the guy left some stickers to be used by the morning staff but had changed the product name to something funny but possibly offensive.  He was in later that afternoon for his evening shift and when he came in we all looked quite serious.  He also noticed the big-wigs from head office were in and asked what was going on.  I told him that a customer had come upon one of the stickers and was so upset that the head office people came in from Toronto to find out what happened and deal with the person responsible.  His face turned white.  I then told him they were all in my office and waiting for him to arrive for work.  I think he broke out in a sweat and I'm sure his knees began to knock.  I called my office to say that the guy had arrived. 

I have to mention that I was friends with the head office people and told them ahead that I was pulling a prank on one of my employees so when they called him in (for a different matter) to look angry.  I also told them to give it a good 10 or 15 minutes before they called him in to let him sweat it out a bit.

When they did finally call him over the loudspeaker to come to the office I almost had to help him walk there.  When we went in they looked at him sternly and mentioned that they heard about what he had done and had to speak to him about it.  It was like he had seen a ghost and I thought he was going to drop right there.  They then pulled out a picture taken of the Christmas windows he had painted and told him what a great job he had done.  The look of relief on his face was priceless.  The head office people never found out about the sticker but the guy learned his lesson about playing with the stickers.

True story:  I went to college in a town where the only heavy industry - was a chocolate factory.  Well, one of the student employees felt he had been ripped off with his salary so on his last night he 'amended' the cocolate santa molds to be, shall we say, anatomically correct.  Santa was never as upstanding and erect as he was that year - and they had to recall thousands of them.

really puts the truth to the saying 'revenge is sweet' 

(hey, I just thought of that... )

The tricky thing is to not have pranks played back on you.  As everyone can probably tell by now I am hardly ever serious so I'm surprised that I can pull pranks on people and not have them be wise to it.

Pranks always come at an expense, so you have to wiegh up the pros and cons of it. As long as it does not cost moment or hurt anyone they have their place.   I am not a good prankster....

I agree.. I need to feel safe, not having to be anxious that someone might come up and do something to me and make me anxious for nothing...
