Boredom often prevails in almost any office environment. So, the only things you’ve got to keep yourself entertained throughout the eight-hour days are your phone or computer and your coworkers. Which begs the question – what does one do to make things interesting at 2:00 in the afternoon on a Tuesday?
This guy decided to take matters into his own hands and create something to give the office workers a laugh. It appears someone also went to play along with the joke. Either that or they were so hungry they were wishing that the paper strips would morph into meaty ones that they could dip in barbeque sauce. Or maybe the guy who made the sign ripped them off himself in hopes that others would keep it up.
The Human Hippopotamus
This is another example of the things office workers do to stay entertained for seven or eight hours five days per week; maybe not one that happens frequently, but definitely a hilarious one. These guys decided to have some fun by playing around with their wallpaper and cell phone camera. You know that frame of time in the afternoon when it’s after lunch, but you’ve still got hours to go before the clock strikes five?
The home stretch can seem almost unbearable at times, so it’s only natural to want to distract yourself from staring at the clock by doing something hilarious with your coworkers. Enter: the human hippo and his lovely photographer who snapped this epic shot. It makes it even funnier that he’s portraying the baby hippo who’s being pushed by his mom. Hey, you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do to kill time!
There’s nothing worse than micro “mangering” right? Apparently, the employees in this building got a little too post-happy and had to be taken down a peg by management. But something tells us they aren’t the ones who printed up this sign. Or maybe they were…
If the manager's note isn’t enough to tell you how much rules are respected around the office, we don’t know what is. It looks like someone is going to have a very stern talking to when the manager gets their hands on them. But hey, at least the manager fully approves. That’s all that really matters in the end, isn’t it?
Let’s Ketchup Later
Ah, yes. Everyone who’s worked in an office is all too familiar with the terrible stenches that can linger in the break room. This person got a little frustrated with the stench of stale ketchup in a room that wasn’t even meant for eating, so they did this.
But apparently, they love their ketchup in this particular building, and the day-old condiment culprit wasn’t going down without a fight. They at least took one last shot at proving to the person who made the sign why the red sticky liquid deserved to be in the same room. Look, it can even apologize! And hey, at least it wasn’t mayonnaise, right? That would have been even smellier.
King of the Office
This recently promoted manager has taken his new role a little too seriously. The second he got this office, he started turning it into his own castle. Or, he had someone do it for him, anyway.
The employees aren’t too excited about the new setup. Not because they don’t like the castle, but because he makes them address him as “my lord” when they go in there to talk to him. Yeah, we can see how that may get old pretty quickly. The guy who put the whole thing together did a pretty nice job, though!
