In this office, there’s one woman who everyone refers to as the “lunchtime bandit” – and for good reason. You see, Debbie often forgets her lunch and is forced to rummage through the fridge to find something to eat. Unfortunately, that usually means she just grabs what she wants, no matter who it belongs to.
The coworkers got together and decided that, rather than simply marking their own names on their lunches, which is what they’d been doing; they needed to try something a little more blatant. So, they decided to just label everything in the fridge that was theirs as “NOT DEBBIES.” Hopefully, she got the message and kept her hands to herself. It was delivered loud and clear, after all…
Who Came Up With That Term, Anyway?
If you have trouble with your browser, you've probably contacted IT and been asked to delete your cookies. They're the way websites track your usage, and you've undoubtedly had to click through a couple of messages about them.
If a website or browser isn't working the way it should, step one is to clear your cookies. This is fine for most people, but not everyone. Don't worry, CM; it's just an industry term. The name came from web browser programmer Lou Montulli, who derived it from the term “magic cookie,” which is a package of data a program receives and then sends back unchanged. That term first appeared in 1979.
Don’t go Breaking My Heart
This April Fool’s joke is downright cruel. Picture this: you’re tired and grumpy going to work on a rainy Monday morning. You’re already running a bit late because nothing seems to be going your way, and now, you’ve got to skip breakfast. You get to the office and make a beeline for the coffee table, only to have a momentary glimpse of hope in the form of a Krispy Kreme donut box. Your mouth starts to water as you think about biting into that sugary jelly donut. You flip the box open in anticipation and discover…that someone in your office apparently has a death wish.
Well, the boss has been trying to get everyone in the office to eat healthier, so it probably didn’t come as that much of a surprise. They filled the pastry boxes with veggies, of all things. It could have been worse, though. At least they decided to include the ranch dressing! But no matter how delicious crisp vegetables can be (especially with ranch), it doesn’t compare to the awesomeness of a fresh donut from Krispy Kreme.
Bad Boy Jobs
Ink must have been running low this week at work, but it still didn’t stop the resident prankster from taking advantage of a perfectly good opening for this practical joke. Management stuck up the sign on the left to keep people from putting the printer out of commission, but this person had a hard time containing themselves!
Even though the sign asked workers to refrain from using this old printer, someone decided to rebel against authority for the sake of this hilarious picture. After all, who would be able to resist pulling this fast one? Hopefully, they stocked up on more ink in this office, though!
Stay off of My Lawn
This cubicle looks like a Florida man’s yard that’s been left to grow wildly for a few months’ time. But at least at this office, they give the workers the freedom to decorate how they like. All these workspace needs are some neighborhood kids losing a football. This actually is mild compared to what it could have been.
After all, there could be a lot more flamingos – there usually are. At least they’re taking good care of it and watering the grass with that squirt bottle. It may be long, but it’s a pretty, fresh shade of green. Let’s just hope that a person can still access their keyboard under all of that flora.
