I used to work in an electronics repair shop. The higher-ups there used to have oodles of fun when we would pick up a big-screen TV to bring back to the shop for repair. As we were carrying the TV (me walking backwards), then would ram me into the door opening of the shop. I would return the favor as often as possible when the other guys were walking backwards.

One of their other fave games was to pass gas most foul in the vehicle en-route to a pick-up or back to the shop, and then use the power door locks and windows to keep me from getting away or getting any fresh air.

I used to be the office help desk guy, that should say it all but…

My favorite was to set a forgotten password to something like

IWillNeverForgetMyPasswordAgain

You would have to type this for a month (I wouldn’t change it back).

I once encrypted the boot sector of our mail server because I knew the boss would reboot it for no reason (mid day and we server 5,000 users). Funny it took me all day to fix it, “unfortunately sir all of my “special” utilities are at my house is it ok if I go get them?”

I’ve also been known to get into the Network switches and shut down specific ports (to users or to servers). This helps in explaining who actually has more control over the network, the server admin, or the network admin.

In my defense he killed my login rights to prove a point, funny – when he went to fix it he had lost all connectivity to the servers… He never did figure out why he still had web access but no server access – Layer3 routing + VLANS = good time

I also irritate people from time to time by inducing a very high pitch tone to their phones intercomm speaker, Then when they come and ask me to fix it I turn off the tone and go check out their phone. When I get there I usually ask them where the tone is and act really annoyed. I will try to get them to follow me back to my bench so I can turn the tone on before they get to their desk. Rinse and repeat as needed(depending on the severity of my annoyance).

I make the tone high enough that I can't really hear it anyway(I have bad hearing), but on an average person it can make them think they are hearing things.

Not as good as controlling the server but, it gets me through the day. I usually don't mess with the I.T. guys, they can make your work life pretty rough.

When I first started a new job, I had to change an antenna on a radio tower, and my partners were acting like they were afraid of heights and didn't want to climb the tower. When I got up there they started throwing rocks at a wasp nest they had already spotted about halway up the tower. Surprisingly, I didn't find that one very funny at all.

One more, I almost forgot!

We install radios/lights/sirens in public safety vehicles. It is really fun(and mean) to wait for someone to walk right in front of a car you are working on and blast the siren. They are very VERY loud when inside of a garage.

Before we moved into the new dealership location, a favorite practical joke here was to take a pair of old boots and uniform pants (over the boots, like someone was wearing them) , and put them into a bathroom stall.

Guys would come in after a big lunch, and needing to *ahem* go, would see the "feet" of someone already in the stall. Some would leave and come back, others would stand there and wait. And wait. And wait. Sometimes they would start asking "Hey you gonna be much longer?"

Finally exasperated, they would push open the stall door, to reveal.....nobody.

Went on a trip from Edmonton, Alberta to Helena, Montana which is over 8 hours with no stops. On the way back I was in the backseat of my buddies Ford Escort and he and my other friend had stopped at the roadside store and picked up deviled sausages and they were burping and farting while having the fans blowing into the backseat where I was and there were no windows to open up. Brings back memories.

When I started working in the plant back in 1988, a common joke was to say, "Is that your black wallet on the bathroom floor". I fell for it as did everybody after my time. When I started doing it to the new guys, when they went into the bathroom to check I would either put pallets infront of the door so they couldn't get out or I'd tie a rope to the handle and tie it off on the fork lift or a nearby pole and leave them in their for a good amount of quality breathing time. I should mention this is right after somebody had a huge bowel movement.

When working in the plant we would do all kinds of crazy things. When a guy was leaving, even the president's son, we would hold them down, soak them, shrink wrap them to a pole ... right after we ripped their shorts off them while wearing them ... and then use a marker to put a moustache on them.

New guys we'd send over to the local plumbing store or to the parts supply store and have them ask for a left handed wrench or a pipe stretcher. The businesses around us had some good laughs and started joining in. They'd tell the new guy that they'd order it if they returned something just as insane that no normal human being could believe. New guys ... they are not normal human beings.

Now with that all said, I have been "gotten" as well. My buddy waited on the roof with a bucket of water in the summer and when I was coming into the building after lunch, and I wear dress cloths to work, he dumped 5 gallons on top of me while one of our owners giggled with glee. As earlier stated, I fell for the wallet trick. I've been scared by fire crackers being tossed into our press room where your back is facing the door and the fans are so loud it is easily to sneak up behind somebody and scare them; and fire crackers are worse. And one of the reasons I climbed into my buddies car to scare him.

For the most part though I usually am on the giving end then the receiving end, but I've also will be starting my 20th year in March so I've seen people come and go and have built up a reputation of being a fun guy. My buddy and I are almost expected to do this and people enjoy the laughs, or most of the people do.

Now I'm just watching to make sure this buddy doesn't have anything planned for me for the near future otherwise I will have to retaliate. Things I have planned for him; 20+ various magazine subscriptions to his house; putting an open house sign just up the road from his house saying "just walk in"; selling his car in the want ads for dirt cheap. Who runs Bartertown?

Liked the graphic, and the quick answer is me…

I am actually the coolest tech you could ever work with. Most of my shows of control are saved for the most annoying technical people. Only the most aggravating of users (trust me it really does take a lot to get me going) get dealt with and for them it is just the password thing. For the most part, once you get on my good side you can have free reign if you want it. Plus there is the random “hook-ups” that I can help you out with
