Pranks are part of the parcel of modern day work life. Mainly because we spend most of our waking hours in stuffy and strict working environments. So it’s no wonder that every so often we have to let off some steam and office pranks seem to be a good way to do it. A little office fun from time to time is fine, as long as we don’t go too far and say superglue a colleague to a desk or something! I think that would be taking things a little too far and if the boss didn’t find these pranks funny, you are going to be in big trouble.
I mean, can you imagine how hard it would be to advertise vacancies in some offices if the people who worked there were constantly uptight, you would have no chance in trying to recruit jobs online, never mind getting anyone to actually stay working there. The same would probably go if pranks went too far or people were constantly singling out one individual to play pranks on, that would be borderline bullying in my eyes! But some of the pranks I’ve managed to find online go way beyond the old TP your desk kind of pranks, they are far more inventive or way more elaborate than that!
As long as they are a little bit of harmless fun, I don’t see the problem with it.
