The new girl in my office told me she wanted to prank a guy named Eric for April Fool's. Eric's the OCD one, the kind of guy that flips if everything isn't at a 90º angle. She wanted to Post-it his office. That sounded like fun, until it occurred to me... SHE'S the new one.
We work in a very conservative office (read: full of old guys) and just recently a newer generation has been coming in. Pranks were not really the norm.
Here's her office.
Very neat and tidy....
That simply will not do.
400 12oz plastic cups
162 9oz paper cups
200 3oz paper cups
one 3qt pitcher
WAAY too much time on my hands.
Starting to lay them out in an orderly fashion
And then the floor
Still moving around the desk. I assumed I wouldn't have enough cups, and I was right. I should've doubled the plastic ones. But I pulled it off by spreading them just far enough apart so you can't get a foot between them.
Executive decision time. I couldn't fill the floor as it was, so I took off the cups from the back table and replaced them with paper. The open spots were for my big caveman feet to move around.
And on to the desk...
And the back table was transformed into...
wait for it...
At this point I started pouring water into the cups. Only about 1/4 full. I wanted to put in just enough water to be annoying (Bear in mind that the nearest sink is over 40 feet away down the hall).
My crowning achievement. For safety reasons I left the cups ON the desk empty.
It took about 8 trips with the pitcher to get water in all of them.
And I still didn't know what to do with the rest of the tiny 3oz cups, so I made a little patio inside the door.
