Pranks To Pull At Work

A Beginners guide to becoming Jim Halpert.

Pranks To Pull At Work
Lovelace Media

Have you ever watched "The Office" and thought "I wish I could be the Jim of my work, but I know I would get fired for doing any of those things?" Me too. Fortunately, I have not given up on pranking and messing with my co-workers. I live for it. I'm constantly going through my day thinking of how I can mess with people. While your situation of work may differ from mine, here are the four "pranks" I constantly pull that you can draw inspiration from.

1. Putting Tape Over the Scanners

I love this one because you may not know who is going to use the scanner next. What's even better, they're usually helping a customer so they can't say anything to you until after they're done. You just get to sit back and laugh.

2. Putting Sticky Notes All Over Someone's Desk

This one is very harmless, but still so annoying. The more sticky notes equals a more annoyed person. This one is my favorite one to do with my bosses' desk. Writing funny messages on them is a bonus.

3. Sticking Things on People's Backs

Although in the picture I used a sticky note, this also works with tape, stickers, name tags, really anything sticky. This takes incredible skill to be able to do this without them finding out. Practicing sticking a note on their back without them noticing is a good way to pass time. Just make sure you tell them at the end of the day so they don't wash their shirt with it on it.

4. Putting Name Tags in the Freezer

I do this one a lot; probably once a day. Usually, with the same person's name tag. We may or may not have an ongoing war. The name tag doesn't have to be hidden in just the freezer. Lockers, high shelves and bowls are other good places. Another tip: you get the most impact out of it if you hide it in the middle of their shift instead of before or after.

Have fun doing these pranks and any others that you come up with, but remember not to be destructive of people's property.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
