Office life is not for everyone. Introverts often struggle to interact with people, deal with small talk, overachievers, and the daily demands of having to coexist with borderline strangers on a daily basis.
However, more often than not, people actually grow to love their co-workers. Sometimes, even a little too much. So, when they get to know each other pretty well, there’s always the chance for an epic prank.
At the end of the day, some offices resemble more of a middle-school room rather than an actual company. That’s why today, we’re going to sum up the office life with 25 hilarious pictures:
25. Earthquake Detection Kit
Let’s face it, there’s always that guy with way too much time on their hands. Hell, sometimes even you have been that person in your office. Still, this one took it a bit too far.
So, in case you were wondering what was your company doing to protect its workers from an earthquake, there’s your answer. For what I’ve heard, it’s 100% accurate.
24. Don't Drink My Milk
We all know how annoying it is to have your food, condiments, or beverages stolen from the office fridge. However, it seems like this person was literally sick and tired of it.
So, he had no choice but to literally put a lock on his milk to stop his coworkers from getting a zip or two. The saddest part is a lot of people will actually copy this move.
23. Wait, What?
Every office has that old printer that spends more time being broken that actually working. Still, not of them have to be exorcised, or at least that’s what I hope.
But that’s not the case of this printer. Either the IT guy likes to have some fun with his coworkers or this device has been possessed by the demon.
22. It's That Kind Of Day
Let’s face it, even if we love what we do, we feel like we’re getting good money for it, and we actually like our work environment, there are days when we just don’t want to get out of bed.
So, this frustrated guy or girl took it to the office’s board to give his input on the morale of the office that day. I guess it happens and there's nothing we can do about it.
21. Weirdest Holiday Ever
Language is all about context. It leaves a lot to interpretation and that’s why we must be pretty clear when we address all work-related issues.
This picture sums a perfect example of it, as it seems like this manager accidentally created a new holiday when he just wanted to say that Jack wasn’t going to the office that day.
20. Poor Kevin
Most offices encourage people to name their food so no one else will take it. Sometimes, however, not even that seems to work, as you could see here.
This guy had the boldness and cold blood not to only eat Kevin’s tuna sandwich but also gloated about it before his very eyes. Poor, poor, Kevin.
19. No Spoilers
We’ve all been this guy at some point in our lives. It seems like everybody’s caught up in some hype. Either a TV show, movie, or book, and we just don’t want to know about it.
So, this person either was a die-hard fan of the show who doesn’t want to hear any spoilers whatsoever or maybe he was just sick and tired of hearing about Game of Thrones.
18. Please, Act Like It
Don’t you hate it when you’re in the middle of something, drowning in a pile of unfinished work, and all of a sudden someone starts acting up or asking dumb questions?
Well, this guy wanted no business with that kind of people, so he let a bit of pretty clear advice on his office window. It actually makes you think and evaluate your behavior. Bravo.
17. Want Some Coffee?
Every office has a prankster. A loud, outspoken guy that’ll always have something to say about every single topic. If you can’t find one in your office, chances are you’re it.
This office had one that wanted to make sure people think twice before pouring in a cup of coffee. This is one of the most graphic pranks you’ll find on the work environment, for sure.
16. Paul's Productivity
Sometimes we don’t have as much work as we’d like. We tend to get bored because we have literally nothing to do for eight hours straight but we still have to stay put in our office.
That seemed to be the case with Paul, a space enthusiast that wanted to put into context the size difference between earth, the moon, and how productive he had been that day.
15. Don't Talk To Me, Linda
There’s no need to be as rude as this guy but we’ve all felt this way more often than we would like to admit. Sometimes we just don’t feel like small-taking and chit-chatting.
Maybe he had some unfinished business and he didn’t want to be interrupted. Maybe Linda is a pain in the rear (that’s most likely the case), but c’mon, this was flat-out rude.
14. Our Boss Is A Dictator
Easy-going bosses are the best. They lead by example rather than try and step on its subordinates toes all day. Sadly, those kind of bosses exist too.
So, I hope this guy knew how to take a hint and understood this prank. Stop being a dictator, you’re not the Supreme Leader, you just have a bigger paycheck and more connections.
13. Sad Cake
Sometimes we tend to care that much for the people we work with that we feel of them like friends and family, which is why it is so sad to see them leave to join a different company.
So, it seems like this guy Ben was quite beloved by his coworkers, who have been having a tough time dealing with the fact that he’ll no longer be on the premises. Let it go.
12. Want a Post-It?
We all have that teammate that takes it a bit too far with Post-Its. I mean, yes, they’re a great resource for reminders, leaving notes, and whatnot, but they’re certainly not for decorating.
That’s why the guys from this office decided it was time to give this person a taste of his own medicine and make a statement by covering his entire cubicle with these sticky bad boys.
11. I See No Lies
Some of us spend more time in our offices than at home. That’s why it’s so important to coexist in peace and harmony and try not to be a douche with the rest of our peers.
We all know that guy that makes the place so much better by just leaving, as well as those coworkers that make the daily burden of office life feel so much lighter.
10. There's An I In Team
You know what they say: there’s no I in a team. Well, turns out that there is, but you must be an A-hole to find it. I think this passive-aggressive message is pretty self-explanatory.
We all have different responsibilities and strengths. We’re supposed to work together, so please, lean on each other rather than taking all matters into your own hands.
9. So Long, Office Pet
No office is complete without its pet. Some have fish, some have hamsters, some - like the one from this picture - aren’t that orthodox and find a more exotic companion.
Apparently, the guys from this office had ‘adopted’ a cricket, so they threw him a memorial after his sad, tragic passing. I guess they have plenty of time to spare.
8. My Bathroom
Everybody has dreamed of having their very own personal bathroom in the office. I mean, for some, that’s the only moment they have to just sit down and relax.
Apparently, this guy Ben pulled it off. He may be the only man in the office so there’s no need to share. Whatever it is, I’d love to be Ben any given day. You made it, man.
7. Office Thief
Most of the time we can tell right away when there’s something missing in the fridge, especially if that missing object actually belongs to us. This why this is so genius.
Someone took the time to put together this epic prank. He thought he was so slick that no one would ever notice and chances are it took everybody a while to tell the difference.
6. Jamming Printer
If I had a cent for every time I was in a rush and the printer jammed, I’d be a pretty wealthy man right now. It may be one of the most frustrating things about office life.
Apparently, the same goes for the guys on this office but at least they have a sense of humor. So no woman, no cry, take it easy and just try your luck with a different printer.
5. Stop Eating Fish
Sadly for some people, we all have to share the same microwave and break room. And I mean sadly because there’s always that inconsiderate person that thinks he’s on his own.
The people from this office had enough with that fishy smell looming around for hours and they decided to ban it from the microwave, which is a genius move, honestly.
4. Periodic Table Of Swearing
There are some times when words just can’t seem to explain what you’re feeling. So it would be kind of handy to have some notes to lean on when that happens.
That’s why this guy literally hung a periodic table of swearing in his office so he never misses on the chance to throw some mean words in the air and just let it out. Genius.
3. He'll Count Them Again
The anti-food burglar patrol strikes again, this time in the shape of a meticulous and borderline obsessive person who knows exactly what’s on his plate.
I mean, if someone took the trouble to write this down, I guess he could go as far as to literally try and count how many rice he’s got, so please just stay away from his food.
One of the worst things about having lunch at the office is constantly dealing with dirty dishes and silverware. I mean, it’s not that hard to just wash and rinse them.
So, this person was completely annoyed about having to wash other’s people dishes that he turned this one into a museum exhibition. It shouldn’t have to be this way, people.
1. Go Green
Gladly, several companies are trying to reduce their environmental blueprint. Their efforts to go green will not only cut down costs but also help the planet. Kudos for that.
But more often than not, offices go into this ‘Go Green’ hype without knowing how to take that step and actually thinking things through. Next time just send an email. It’ll be enough.
