The team at ShareASale has been known to play to occasional prank – both inside and outside of the office. Here are a few of my favourite tricks throughout the last few years.
Seriously, Where Did My Stuff Go?
I returned from vacation two years ago to find every single thing on my desk gone. (That’s the coffee I purchased in the morning.) It took me about twenty minutes, but I eventually found all my stuff scattered throughout the office.
Are You Trying To Say My Desk Is Messy?
Our tech lead is known for his very messy desk. So when he took off early on a Friday, his fellow pod members decided to first cover his desk in post-it notes, then wrap it entirely in plastic wrap. If I remember correctly, it didn’t motivate him to clean up any more than before.
I Could Actually Work Like This For A While
Last year upon returning from vacation, I came back to my desk area flipped completely upside down. I did try to work like this for about twenty minutes, but it was incredibly awkward. (Again – that’s the coffee I purchased in the morning.)
You Want 2 Bags Of Dry Cleaning Ready By WHEN?
While not a prank – still a funny story. Everyone pitches in around ShareASale, for even the most random of jobs. After a marathon of conferences, our fearless leader needed a little dry cleaning done. So, a few of our bravest lugged two bags down to our favorite little dry cleaning lady. She was a little overwhelmed to say the least.
Big Bird Just Wanted An Iced Vanilla Frappachino
Amazing things happen when you have full size costumes laying around an office of affiliate marketers. Sometimes you have to step away from the monitor and into a Big Bird Costume to get your afternoon coffee.
NOTE: So far today ShareASale hasn’t seen any major pranks – but it’s still early. Stand by for updates.
