There’s a sales guy at my work who has his own printer in his cubicle and one day I noticed it was also available as a networked printer, so every few weeks for about two years I would send a Microsoft Word document to his printer so it looked like the printer was talking to him.
It would just be stuff like “Ray, I’m almost out of ink so you might need to change it soon” or “Ray, if you win the office NCAA basketball pool can you buy me some semi-gloss paper to print on? That stuff is nice!” I also signed all the print jobs “Sincerely HL-1440” which was the model number of his printer.
He never knew who was sending all these documents to his printer and accused every single person in the office. He’d walk around with each printout and go up to everyone saying “I know this was you!” Only a couple people knew who was really doing it though and they never told him.
Fast forward a couple years and the month leading up to April Fool’s Day I just kept printing information on other printers from OfficeMax.com and OfficeDepot.com to his printer with no explanation. Then on April Fool’s Day I got to work early, stole his printer and left a note from his printer to him telling him that it knew he was checking out other printers and that it was leaving him.
I also hung up missing person style posters all over the office with a picture of his printer and a note saying to call him with any information about its whereabouts.
Then I created an email address for his printer. Throughout April Fool’s Day I sent emails to him from his printer, telling him what a great time it was having without him and even included photo-shopped pictures of his printer having fun in all these different situations.
The last picture was his printer sitting on a dock near some water looking out and it just said something about how it had a really fun day out but missed him and had decided to come home. Then I walked the printer back over to his cubicle.
Here are all the pictures and the text from the emails that went with them:
I just wanted to check in and see how you’re doing as well as give you an update as to what I’m up to. Since I’m usually there hard at work bright and early every morning, I decided to start today off easy with breakfast in bed – it felt nice sleeping in for once.
Also, I’ve attached a picture for you so you don’t miss me too much. It’s alright though, The Jeremy Kyle Show is going to be on soon so I’ll check back in with you later!
P.S. – Please don’t be upset with me. I just need some time…
Here’s a picture of me playing video games with some friends of mine. It’s true what they say, video games really HAVE gotten violent these days!
Hey there Ray!
As appetizing as lounging around at home all day watching TV and playing video games sounds, I decided to do some sightseeing as well. Here’s a picture of some friends and I at Disney World!
How’s work going? Right now I’m emailing you from Hollywood, California where I just visited the Hollywood Walk of Fame and found the star of one of my favorite singers of all time – Celine Dion! Attached is a picture for you!
I know I’ve been emailing you lots of pictures of me sightseeing, but please don’t think I’m getting lazy. Here’s a picture of me hard at work in the oval office printing out important documents for the President’s new economic legislation!
I’ve had a lot of time to reflect today and what I’ve realized is that I really miss working with you. I’m coming home!
