So I usually try to pull a prank of some sort in the office. I saw this website and thought this would be a great one to try this year. The setup was great. We had someone in working on the copier earlier this week as a unfortunate coincidence. I posted the sign last night and had the Financial Administrator send out an email this morning regarding a software upgrade. Trap was set – all we had to do was wait for someone to use the “upgraded” voice commands.
After a solid three hours of no one using the copier I decided to get another staff member in on the action. He did a great job “using” the voice commands and immediately we had buy in. It took a minute for the other staff in the area to figure out it was a prank. This is definitely something that should be tried in a larger office. Could be hours of fun.
Close up of the sign and a link to the PDF after the jump. Thanks to Candace and David for putting the pieces together and making this work.
