Three Harmless Pranks You Can Try

1. "Excuse me, I can't hear you." - Place a little piece of clear tape over the speaker part of the office phone handset and watch the person get annoyed at the caller. For more fun, remove the tape for a while then stick it back. Continue this on and off throughout the day.

2. The old flip screen routine - Click Ctrl+Alt+the down arrow and the display will flip vertically and the mouse controls with it. This is impossible to undo unless you know the secret command which is the same, but with the up arrow instead.

3. Out Of Service - Put "Out of service" on all the toilet cubicle doors. Watch while your colleagues panic. You can add to the chaos and put the same signs on the elevator doors too.
