The Big Damn law office tries to have fun ...
Tuesday, November 22, 2005

Lawyers can be mean, no, no, really they can …

So, any of you avidly following my progress in my bid to make my workplace more exciting, will know that yesterday I nicked my friend Jonathan’s Supaclip and sent a ransom note…

Things deteriorated quickly … no sooner had Jonathan issued a Police press release with details of the suspected perpetrator, than he received a further message through the internal mail (yes, folks, me again) with a photocopy of his Supaclip, attached to a speech bubble saying “Daddy, where are you? It’s so dark …. Sooo dark… sob…” and the hideous words “you shouldn’t have called the police” scrawled across the bottom in a spidery hand …

This caused a further “police” report and then – shock horror – when I came back from lunch, my little flip flap was missing. Flip flap is a plastic plant that flip flaps on my window sill.

Eventually we agreed to have a cold war style hand over which was hampered some what by our discovery, when we tried to release Supaclip and Flip Flap at opposite ends of a corridor, that neither of them could walk (John Le Carre would not have been impressed) ….

So today I’m looking for less-likely-to-backfire ways to enliven my office …

And rest assured that, although somewhat traumatised by his kidnap, Flip Flap is now, slowly, learning to flip flap again …

When I worked at a bookstore, high entertainment was the RubberBand Wars.

We'd sneak attack each other and shoot each other with rubber bands. The trick was to not get caught by either customers or management.

Much harder, and potentially more damaging to your career in an office though.

I bet there are whole websites dedicated to crazy ways to entertain yourself at work.

lol! So very funny!

Sounds like stuff my best friend and I would do in school. We'd do the cut and paste randsom notes and break into each other's lockers.

*Sigh* good times.

I'll try to come up with more ideas for you, though it seems to me you're crazy enough to come up with your own fun.

So... do you guys, like, do any actual work there or what?

Also, prank calls are always funny if you're looking to pass the time.
