On April 1st, I swapped out my boss's kids' pictures for my own kids, removed some of his technical books, replaced them with self-help books & the life & times of Dolly Parton. He had the actual football helmet of some legendary player on a shelf: I replaced it with a football helmet ice cream "bowl" from DQ. He had a nice replica of a Progressive Insurance car on his shelf. I replaced it was one that was broken. My coworker & I copied GEICO's gecko & pasted on the paper in his printer. (We fessed up bf he printed anything.)

We put so many pencils in his pencil holder that they all came out when he took one. We taped down the button on his phone so it would keep ringing when he picked it up.

He loved every bit of it & told other managers about it that day.

When I left the Army, I joined a startup recruiting company. Because we were small, the work environment was super informal and there were lots of jokes and pranks. One of my funniest memories was when my boss changed his cell phone ring tone to be of birds chirping. We sat next to each other and the chirping got old really fast. So one day when he left his desk, I put his phone up in the ceiling on the other side of a removable panel. When he came back to his desk and got a phone call, he unsuccessfully scrambled to find his phone. By the third call, he was tearing his desk apart, emptying drawers, dumping file folders out. The ceiling tile perfectly muffled the sound so he couldn't tell it was coming from above. I finally had to confess when he got furious and confronted me about his phone's location. If you're familiar with the show "The Office," something very similar happened between Jim and Andy and Andy eventually punched a hole in the wall and had to attend anger management.
