    We had a reputation for pranks...best one was just stating something like "good luck starting the xXxX today..." with proper tone.

    Certain folks would get concerned and double check things 3 times looking for something that was not there...

    It would be reflexive with me, not calculated. I get hooked up to those hot wires from time to time. There maybe miles of fence on a single charger with a bunch of weeds touching the wire and it still takes your breath away!
    When the fellow that was laughing the loudest is picking up his teeth and I was recovering from the shock not sure who would be in worst shape.

    Yesterday, my brother called everyone together and started telling them how much we appreciated them and how everyone's having to deal with stuff during the pandemic, so he wanted to give us all a bonus. He then pulled out a box and started handing out TP rolls.

    We have a good crew and everyone laughed. To be honest though, if I was offered a .05 cent pay raise instead.... I probably would have taken the TP.

    Yeah one place I worked had hundreds of guys, so we had groups of buddies that would prank each other, there were some pretty good ones.

    I got one guy running a 500 ton press with a dry ice "bomb" - where you put a bit of dry ice in the bottom of a soda pop bottle and then add water and screw the lid on. After about a minute or two the bottle pops like an M80 - KaBoom!

    Anyway snuck up behind the press and tossed it underneath while he was working on straightening some coiler segments. BOOM! That brought the leadman running, haha, and they spent the next 10 minutes checking everything. My buddy finally found the popped bottle debris and got back to work.

    If you're going to pull pranks in today's pandemic environment, you may as well go all in and hope for the best. Stand close behind someone and fake a loud sneeze, and simultaneously squirt a windex bottle on his neck. Make sure you get enough on his ear and cheek that it runs down a bit. Wait for the reaction, don't run away.

    Personally, I consider most of this infantile, but there was one that I thought was funny. The story goes that shortly after the Cadillac Eldorado went on the market, one would make a clunk sound when it turned a corner. After checking everything that seemed possible, in desperation they started opening sealed up areas in the body. In one they found a Coke bottle and in the bottle was a note saying

    "So you finally found it, you rich son of a bitch."

    fired for cause, buh bye

    Sending the new guy to the stock room for a 'long weight'; funny

    Screwing with a guy running a press that could crush you like a bug, last thing you do at my company

    Nah, not unsafe. Press couldn't operate without the doors closed. Might possibly damage the item in the press if he jumped and smashed the lever, but no big deal, it was already bent and being straightened. And a 500 ton press doesn't move fast. A quick bump wouldn't do much of anything.

    If you have a press that can crush you like a bug and operate it in a manner that could get people hurt you ought to be fired from your own company. Do you even have such a press? Have you operated one? Sounds like lack.of experience talking.

    Windex not so bad. After that first reaction of "Oh Shit!" the guy would at least smell the Windex and realize it was a prank. It's when you start with the "I tested positive for covid" shit that people will get pissed.

    Back in the day when no one around here heard of fence chargers FIL went fishing at a public lake and decided to take a short cut back to the car. Came to a fence wire and grabbed it with both hands to cross. Could not let go and the buddies had to find a big branch and knock His hands loose. Found out later it was hooked ut to 110 volts.

    Any of you remember the Union/Management "wars" when Lordstown, Ohio auto plant went online? Marbles in fuel tanks, Limberger cheese wedges welded into interior quarter panels... Company finally filed a lawsuit, FORMALLY accused the Union of deliberate sabotage.

    Union makes the newspaper claiming they had put hired outside investigators on it and confirmed:

    "...that there was no more sabotage than normal."

    I bet you are a real treasure to work for!

    I agree with NOT doing something that may cause injury or worse, but a harmless prank..?

    Been a while, but one place I worked we wore gloves when opening up dies and stuff. Every now and then we would squirt grease into the fingers of said gloves. Priceless to see their face when they put them on.

    I like ink on eyepieces. Simple ,funny, doesnt hurt or scare anyone. Best is if everyone else is in on it you can just let em walk around like that and hopefully they will leave with it to show everyone else.I got two boys with some binoculars the other day.
