I walked into my bosses office and said very loudly 'I quit'. I then
walked out and came back on the second.

That was YOU?!

I remember one year in college we sent a print job with 5,000 form feeds
to the high speed line printer for the late-night lab assistance. We
didn't print anything (so as to not waste the paper), but we understand
they had a fun time dealing with the job.

A better one, though, I think was the guy whose office we unwrapped an
old backup tape in. Was one of the old reel-to-reel style data backup
tapes. We wedged it into the ceiling over his office and started it
unspooling - gravity took over, and by the morning the whole thing was on
the floor in his office.

Though come to think, that might not have been April 1, but his birthday
we did that for.

Years ago my brother tried something along these lines - he swapped the
sugar and the salt the night before.

My dad, though, noticed the difference. When he made Steve's oatmeal, he
used salt rather than sugar *intentionally*. Steve didn't really think
that through very well. 😉

Re: Your best April Fools prank?

Pam was telling me of someone that took a bunch of unused pagers (as
people were switching over to phones) and put them spread out in the
ceiling tile in Norm Rupp's office. During they day they would call one
and immediately hang up before he could figure out which direction the
sound was coming from. A little while later they would do the same to one
in another corner of the office.
