Hump Day Poll: Pranksters

I'm not a huge prankster anymore because I know what comes around goes around.  There was a website brought to my attention by my then boss called Mac Pranks or something like that back in the late 1990's.  I came back after lunch and when I threw away something, this came on

So you know dang well I kept that in my arsenal and when Y2K rolled around a year later, I struck with this dick I worked with.  When he left before the new year about an hour early, I installed a Mac prank on his computer and everyone saw me do it and agreed not to tell.  When we all came back for the new year we were told to restart our computers.  When he did, the computer flashed black and white, made this horrible screeching noise and the CD player ejected in and out over and over and the Mac "screen of death" came up.  He FREAKED OUT and was blood red embarrassed and asked me what was going on since I was the computer savvy one while people were snickering.  I said "I know there's some porn virus with Y2K, what have you been looking at?  You'd better report this to your boss, they said to let them know if there are any problems."  As he's leaving he's asking everyone else if they had problems and everyone said no.  He leaves.  I run over and uninstall it.  His supervisor comes over and tells him to restart his computer and it came up fine.  His boss asked if anyone else had a problem and they all shook their heads no and he looked at him like he was nuts.  When he left, we all busted out laughing.  Dude finally learned to password protect his computer before leaving after I warned him repeatedly.   That one was fun...he was an ass.

What's a funny prank you've played on someone?

  1. I have never really been much of a prankster but I do miss when networks were open enough that you could install software to prank people like that. I remember the computer lab at my college was a free for all like that. You could be working on something important and then little rabbits take over your screen. Ahh, the 90's.

  2. My girlfriend took care of my fish while I was on vacation. When I got back there was a sign that said welcome back world travelers, I killed your fish! I left her a voicemail Saying that at 1st I thought she was joking, but my fish are all dead and my kids are really upset. Then I kept letting my phone go to vm as she robo dialed me🤣

  3. I don't think I've ever pranked anyone specifically that I can think of. I'm apparently not very clever. ROFL
