I burnt up two rolls of duck tape on an electrician's cordless screw gun. Only because he stuck my hammer in a coffee can full of concrete on a Friday, I didn't 't find it until Monday.

No one I work with have the stones to do anything to me. They are afraid of what I would do back.

Carpet protection tape and a computer in the bag. Hide all the sharp instruments(scissors, utility knives, etc.) and watch the fun begin!

Haven't tried it yet, but I think if you cut off the roll of tyvek about 6 inches and swap that out with the tp in the porta pot, it might be funny.

Re: Favorite Prank To Pull


Well I had the perfect prank all set up and ready to go....but then Pickles date cancelled at the last minute

He made the mistake of telling me the name of the restaurant he was taking her to

I decided he was going to need company...me and my wife...as most of you know I like bugging and embarrassing him.

My wife made arrangements for him to get a table for 4 instead of 2...and a birthday cake with a sparkler and the singing

I had another girl we know all lined up to show up with a cushion under her shirt looking all pregnant to come in during the meal and start cursing him out for fooling around on her while she carries his child.

Then I had to cancel it all because this girl changed her mind

But all was well...I still took him out for dinner...and revealed our plan

You, sir, are diabolical.

I think we need to get together next time I am in upper Canada and pick on Pickles a little....

Re: Favorite Prank To Pull


I spot welded a dudes metal lunch box to our work table twice in a year. Seeing him try to grab it was hilarious. He always got me back.

I used to disconnect my windshield wiper fluid hose, loop it up toward my rear view mirror with an extension, get a buddy to pull up next to me and light his ass up when he rolled down the window.

Did that with a 3 1/2 spike on a expensive oak banister but made it look like I toe nailed it on and left 3/4" and the head sticking out, then called the boss over and said "this is how I was to fasten it right?" His jaw dropped!!

Re: Favorite Prank To Pull


Two large zip ties around the drive-shaft of the targets truck in a position so they will beat the ever living sh!t out of the floor pan (careful to avoid brake lines/fuel lines) is always hilarious. When I was in the Navy years ago I had one guy calling a tow truck and making arrangements with a shop before I reached under with a pair of dykes and cut them loose...I was a legend around my squadron for that and many other pranks involving never seize (a drop of that stuff can literally end up everywhere quick). I safety wired a guys personal belongings to each other and then to the inside of a locker once because he was told repeatedly to keep his locker locked but didn't listen to well. I did it in a way that everything was concealed so when he came in to grab his lunch pail and head home for the day it pulled about a 6ft stringer of crap with him and ultimately almost pulled the lockers over. I took the genie lift and hung one guys dress blues from the center of the hangar 20 min prior to a change of command ceremony one time too. The skipper even laughed at that one..

I super glued a guys dip can (upside down of course) to the desk not once but several times. All I asked was not to leave spit cups around the shop...

I dipped for a while when I was doing commercial finish outs, because I couldnt smoke in the high rises. Eventually quit both.

Anyway, I shared an office with two other foremans and the project super in a job trailer. We were filling out labor sheets for our crews, and I left my spit cup in my pick up.

My boss had a plastic cup like from a restraunt, a throw away it looked like. I went to spitting in it. He came in and flipped the out. His daughter brought it back for him from New York City It apparently was very sentimental

My crew somehow got delegated sidewalk duty the next week.

Re: Favorite Prank To Pull


When worked building roads when another foreman would stop by we would take a roll of flagging tape and tie it to the rear axe then pace the roll on the axle so after a few bumps they would have a 50ft tail

If you put Tabasco sauce in a guy's Pepsi (has to be Pepsi) it will go unnoticed until it is to late.
