    lmao Work Prank



    So I come in tonight to find one of the guys (Herb) left his PC unlocked before he left for the weekend. I felt compelled to send an email on his behalf from his PC to one of the engineers (James) and BCC everyone else.

    From: ****, Herb

    Subject: I thought of you tonight


    I thought of you tonight
    lying awake while the city sleeps
    anxious for what may be because of what was
    when your tongue traced my lips I felt so alive,
    There was no thought only action.
    the cascades of grey in your eyes look so deep into me,
    I cannot hide myself from you.
    It scares me but I like to be afraid.
    There are no others when you are here,
    There never were.
    You leave me so destroyed.
    Thinking of your kiss only brings pain until our next embrace,
    soft velvet lips haunt my dreams and my waking hours.
    I think of tracing patterns on your skin,
    the stories your scars tell
    So much has happened here.
    So much I will never know.
    Many lives lived in such a young body,
    many choices made that weren't always right.
    I worry for you every night,
    where are you now,
    Where were you last night when I looked out at the stars.
    It has been only a short time,
    Feels like ages.
    Empires have risen and fallen in your absence,
    I have changed more than once.
    I have conquered fears and changed lives.
    You said on the phone you miss me,
    you did miss me,
    but only by a day.
    We will be together again soon,
    even if for only a short time.
    You never stay.
    You will leave again,
    and grief will come again,
    and time will pass,
    but I won't forget.
    You never forget Love

    They got to prove it was you!

    I also gave him some Justin Bieber wallpaper (the Hasselhoff in a speedo was getting old), on top of that I threw some Justin Bieber web site shortcuts into his start up folder and logged him off. I wish I could see his face, but the way the schedule is I won't see him again until the first of the year.

    So that's why IT tells me to lock my computer when I go home for lunch and shut down before I go home for the night.

    I just Googled: Sappy Poems and found one that looked good enough.

    Around here we have access to multi-million dollar equipment, with multi-million dollars worth customer traffic, so leaving your machine unlocked can be a big deal if someone wanted to be malicious using your log in, these type of pranks are kind of a wake up call, "if I sat there and did this to you imagine what else could have been done to the network." So you kind of go out of your way to have some fun with it and make it absolutely embarrassing for the person so it doesn't happen again.

    I just installed a 'blue screen of death' on my work computer. I don't keep any personal information or history on my work computer anyway, but anyone who does use it gets 'the blue screen' which cannot be bypassed without a password.

    There was another thing I loaded up where every time you started the computer up, you were locked into an seemingly endless 'ckdsk' screen, again where you had to have the correct sequence to get around it.

    Stuff is available for downloads in a lot of places. I mainly did that to my work computer as I am supposed to be the only one using it.

    big brother auto locks ours, but i still manually lock it when i leave the desk. I think our facility is upwards of a billion in equipment but a pair of scissors can end it all.....

    Thus why i always ask who anyone is i dont know entering the building. Sometimes we get vendors in and they ring the doorbell, i dont know them so i open the door, stand in the doorway and ask who they are, the looks on their faces when they assume they can walk right in but cant as i am blocking is pretty funny

    Ours are initially set up that way also, people go in and change them though. Same here as soon as I get up it's, control-alt-delete and hit the enter key to lock it, almost second nature, I have been embarrassed too, by some of the best that make what I did to this guy look elementary.

    I found out this morning we had a Chinese vendor of some new equipment come in to train some of the transport guys, they were caught trying to reverse engineer other vendor platforms on people's unlocked machines and were escorted back to DIA a couple months ago. I was wondering why a few weeks ago there were a group of Chinese guys being escorted around the campus by security. Seems some new trainers were sent and were being watched like hawks, they couldn't even go to the restrooms by themselves.
