How to Prank Your Boss
Looking for some juicy pranks to slap on your unsuspecting boss? Here’s a few that I managed to pull off with mine, and (as of yet) still haven’t been fired. Pulling a fast one on your boss will likely show you a bit more about what your working environment will be at the company, and of course it will be incredibly amusing. If they can't jive with your good-humored fun, maybe you don't want to jive with the company! (However, if you really need the job, maybe you should skip these prank ideas...for now.)
Everybody loves corgis, right? Brighten your manager’s day by putting these stickers on everything they own (I got mine on Amazon). To cause extra annoyance, place the stickers not only on their everyday use items, but also in nooks and crannies where they’ll discover them weeks or months later for a good laugh. Some good sneaky spots include under desks and coffee mugs, the hidden side of chargers and furniture, and the backs of jackets and sweaters that they might be wearing.
Find embarrassing photos of your boss and frame them. Facebook public photos are a good resource for your photo research – and if they’re public then they’re fair game! Make sure the placement is in a highly visible and well-trafficked spot in the office for maximum viewing and sharing pleasure.
Dress up like them. Even if you just draw on a beard or sport a particularly similar pair of socks, you're doing a great thing. Bonus points for getting other coworkers in on it too. Your efforts will culminate into the penultimate expression of your appreciation for your boss. Just remember, have fun!
