Recipe for a birthday prank
K’s workstation got pink’d!
a.k.a. How To Prank Your Boss On His Birthday
Before you start
Preparation time: When your boss was not around in the office
Cook time: 30 minutes before your boss headed back to his workstation
Total time: Good enough to say, “We decorated only after work, boss!”
- 4 rolls of ugly wrapping papers
- 1 roll of mounting tape
- Scrap paper
- Some recycled balloons and wall decorations
- Fancy camera filter
- An extra pair of hands
Step 1: Get a partner in crime.
Step 2: Lock your boss out of the office so you can overdecorate the workstation.
Step 3: Cover everything you see at the workstation with the ugliest wrapping paper you can get from a stationery store. Put the final touch to these “gifts” with ribbons made from scrap paper.
Step 4: Ask for an extra pair of hands to blow up the balloons (or just get an air pump) 3 minutes before your boss gets back.
Step 5: Get your camera and the fancy filter ready.
Step 6: Welcome the birthday star, shout out “Happy Birthday!”, and force your boss to strike a pose.
Tips: Make sure you hide REAL gifts underneath these ugly wrapping papers, and reuse the papers afterwards!
