Some may get you in trouble with the boss, but only for a quick second. The boss, too, may laugh at the idea. So, let’s go.

    1. Discounted Vehicle for Sale

    Prior to going to the office, look in the newspaper for free ads. Put an ad in the newspaper selling the boss’s vehicle at a discount price. Make sure that you don’t leave out the phone number and email address of the boss. Mention the hours to call, but make sure that the hours are during office hours. You want all the employees to be laughing too.

    1. Salt in the Sugar

    Get to work earlier than everyone else. Go in the break room and put some salt in the sugar jar and sugar in the salt jar. Watch the faces of your coworkers as they make the coffee and taste it, realizing that their coffee taste very salty. Someone may be mad, but for the most part, it is just a joke to be enjoyed by the rest.

    1. Coffee Switch

    Most employees love to have their coffee in the mornings. Many of them prefer regular coffee instead of decaf. So, volunteer to make coffee and switch the decaf to the regular coffee during the morning hours. Coworkers will wonder why they are not getting that coffee high. Ignite the senses with Espresso during the second half of the day. People will be bouncing off the wall instead of winding down after a long day at work.

    1. The Resignation Letter

    Find two of your best working coworkers that shine more than all other employees. Write copies of their resignation and put on the boss’ desk. Make sure you state the reason for the resignation such as winning the lottery. You could also circulate the letters to other coworkers. Watch them laugh.

    1. Getting Dirtier

    Put some food coloring in the liquid soap jar in the bathroom. Watch people go into the bathroom, wash their hands and find it getting dirtier. Don’t use too much food coloring or your joke may turn into something else.

    1. Prank Call

    Put sticker or tape over the buttons of the phone. Put the phone back and wait as someone calls into the office. Each time someone calls, the phone will continuously ring. The person being pranked will hang up the phone, picking it back up again to see if that would solve the dilemma while you are watching from a distance.

    1. Spreading Gossip

    Office gossip is a given and there are some people in the office that are good at it. Use them to spread gossip about the coworker who is being pranked, but make sure that the information is not true and lighthearted enough to make everyone laugh about it.

    1. The Cleaning Staff

    Collaborate with the cleaning people to pull off this prank. Put up an ‘out of order’ sign on the elevator and at the door of the restroom. Watch the look of frustration on the faces of your coworkers. This prank will work all the time.

    1. Muffled Sounds

    Stick clear tape on the ear piece of the telephone. When someone calls in, the person who is being pranked will answer the phone, not being able to hear anything because the call will be muffled. However, try this one on a coworker who loves to make personal calls.  

    1. The Animal Clients

    On the top of the list is the prank with animal clients or at least, this is what the pranked person will think. Use this on a receptionist that spends most time on the Internet and doesn’t do her work. Give her some animal names and zoo numbers to call. Create names such as Mr. Tigger or Mrs Lyon. Stand and watch as she becomes literally red in the face.
