    3. Ignore the first five people who say 'hello' to you.

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

    6. When someone hands you a piece of paper, finger it, and whisper huskily, "Mmmmmmm, that feels soooooo good!"

    8. Walk sideways to the photocopier.

    9. While riding in a lift, gasp dramatically every time the doors open.


    1. Say to your boss, "I like your style" and shoot him with double-barreled fingers.

    3. Page yourself over the intercom (do not disguise your voice).

    4. Kneel in front of the water cooler and drink directly from the nozzle (there must be a 'non-player' within sight).

    5. Shout random numbers while someone is counting.


    1. At the end of a meeting, suggest that, for once, it would be nice to conclude with the singing of the national anthem (extra points if you actually launch into it yourself).

    4. Announce to everyone in a meeting that you "really have to go do a number two".

    7. In a meeting or crowded situation, slap your forehead repeatedly and mutter, "Shut up, damn it, all of you just shut up!"

  2. :lol::lol::nuts::roflmfao::roflmfao:
    will the boss be happy?!?!:shrugs:
  3. :roflmfao: :roflmfao: :roflmfao:

    OMG!!! That's soooo funny! I've not seen that one before. I got some seriously odd looks from my brother when I was laughing out loud at my pc. I'm going to forward it on to my Dad whose stuck in the office today. Thank you so much it really made me laugh!
  4. Um, if I did that, the other lawyers would send me home on FMLA :huh:

    Soooooooooooooooooooo *decides not to do the list*
  5. Seriously, I used to have a colleague who is a #8 one-pointer, that's just how he is.
    And Cal, have you tried any yourself?
    My husband would do some five-pointers just to annoy me, of course he gets what he wants everytime!!!
  6. KK - I'm trying them but my kids don't seem to care. Hmmmmmph. Sometimes it's no fun being a SAHM.

    Does your colleague seriously walk sideways to the printer? That's bizzare. Tally up his points and present them to him at the end of next week.....I DARE YOU!:graucho:
  7. That is sofa king hilarious! But if I did any of that, I would get fired.
  8. :lol: Too fun! If only I had a job at an office...
  9. hahaha...the best part is that if i did most of those things at my work, no one would really care, but i work in a large retail store.

    we play bouncy ball baseball on the sales floor with the bouncy balls that they sell in the little vending machines near the front doors and the backs of clipboards.
  10. I am soooo trying those right now. I might get my coworkers to play later.
  11. hahah I love those!!
  12. :roflmfao: :roflmfao: :roflmfao:

    I would absolutely love to try those -- especially some of the 5 pointers -- I'm still at the office and so tempted. Unfortunately, I suspect with all the people that are still here, they might just pad the walls of my office and send in a straitjacket for me.
  13. Very funny, thanks for sharing.
  14. I would love to try it out but I have just started a new job and I would be too scared as they might think I am normally like that!

    I am such a wuss!
  15. Ones we did at work (when I worked in a office).
    I will give them 5 points:

    1) Lower the swivle chairs on people who sit near you, it may take them some time to figure out what is wrong....

    2) Take the phone mouthpiece out of the phone, they can hear the other person but the other person can't hear them.......Too funny.

    3) Did the decaf. thing, people knew something was wrong.

    4) Make a clay vodoo doll and keep on desk and each time someone stands in front of you stick a paper clip bent out like a line in to the doll.

    5) Bring literature on something like Scientology and keep passing it out to all your co-workers.......

    We did more, but our office was one to mess around and find humor in things.
