    Job Shenanigans: What's the Biggest Mischief You've Brewed (And Acted Out) at Work?

    I'm sure we all have a story here. Perhaps it was something you'd been plotting for months. Or maybe you simply took advantage of an opportune situation. Were you seeking revenge? Or did you try to get fired, and failed? Did you get away with your deed, or did you get caught?

    Let's share. May hilarity ensue.

    I worked a fart into the audio of "Snakes On A Train". FF to as much as you can stand before 30:08 of this filmic masterwork to witness my triumph.

    Never. Not trying to rain on your thread but I like to highly optimize my work time to minimize the time and energy spent. Paradoxically I really like my job and love my work (computer programmer), but I love it so much that I like to have plenty of off time for the projects I really like.

    I've heard no end of stories however. Usually pretty subtle ones involving emails or letters impersonating the CEO to some hapless individual, due to their complaining too much about some gripe or another.

    I bought a keg for my office and let employees drink on the job... as long as they meet their deadlines they get free beer.

    Are you hiring?

    — When I was working a live-in job at a hotel as a student, I'd sneak down in the middle of the night to have a chat with the night porter. That dude had the key to the kitchen and all the fridges, so we'd indulge in some serious bacon, caviar and/or ice cream feasts.

    On a business trip I went into downtown Brussels and drank the beer like it was English beer (i.e. half the strength). The next thing I knew I was in a hotel with a bed covered in vomit and faced a 250 Euro charge for the pleasure.

    Of all the jobs Ive had where I have been blatantly discriminated against/harassed by management for my sexual orientation AND have had a willing partner I've had sex on top of the offending peoples desk before leaving.
