    Fun ways to mess with people :)

    Hi TDH,
    It's Friday, and just wanted to start a fun thread for no reason.
    What are some of your fun ways to mess with people?
    Here's an easy one. When you're looking at shirts in a clothing store, wait till a salesperson comes to ask if you need any help. (Which someone inevitably will.)
    When they do, hold up a shirt and ask them if it comes in extra medium.

    When I go to the market with my wife they ask paper or plastic. My wife always says plastic and when they start to pack I say paper please. I don't look at them so they don't know if I'm serious or not. Makes me laugh.

    Hook up your car's proximity sensors to your window washers and flip them around to they face the street.

    I like it when I'm at a restaurant and they ask for a name to call out when the order is ready and I tell them to say 'hey a-hole'

    Yeah here's one , when you are having a conversation with people in a crowd, instead of you telling them '' Can I ask you a question? '' Say it to them this way '' Can I Tell'' you a question? '' Notice how they tend to keep quiet for a few seconds.

    When you walk into a sit down restraunt with your party, the host or hostess will usually look at you and say something like "Party of 3 (or how ever many you have with you)" Correct them and say "No there are 36 of us, the rest are getting off the bus" as straight faced as possible. Wait for their eyes to go wide and their face to turn white. Then when ever you feel like letting the off the hook tell the truth.

    Here's a fun one for any smokers. You'll notice a lot of the time when you go into a store to buy cigarettes you ask for a brand and the cashier turns to look and has no idea what he/she is looking for. When the start to look around start giving the horrible directions to the "right pack," "yeah just up a little bit, over to the left, no no down to the right. No no that one over there, no up a little." If you do this right you can have them looking for a good 10 min before find the right ones.

    Disconnect your windshield wiper fluid hose and fill the tank with water. Pinch the hose out of the hood so it shoots out the side of the hood. Insane fun ha

    This is also car-related:
    When driving, honk the horn and wave when you pass by people on the sidewalk. It does'nt matter if you don't know them, in fact that is the funny thing.
    When you look in the rearview mirror afterwards, you will see that they turn after your car and they will look very confused

    use petro;ium jelly ( or some other clear oily substitute)on the mall toilet seats. Best if you find a time when the most hip cool adolescents are at the mall. then sit near the entrance ( in our case the food court) enjoy a soda and a show. cause that stuff is so hard to get off....even if you had the privacy to scrub well

    I like to do the lil' bit from Beverly Hills Cop... some random person comes near you yell out. I doubt you would get through the whole scene without the other person running the other way, but if you did it would go like this.......

    "Hey man what's hapnin' Phil, I new dat was you, he told me that wasn't you, said you don't come here no more, but I said it's Phil! That is Philip,
    I told you that's Phil, you liar!
    Hey Philip, gimme kiss baby! Hey
    Phil!
    Phil! What's wrong man?
    What's all the hostility Phil?
    Whachoo doin' with all these guns man?
    You changed man!

    Classic George Carlin ...

    "Someone" calls your house. They ask for "whoever".

    You simply and solemnly say ...

    "Whoever" is dead.

    Ok. That was bad. BUT I didn't come up with it

    This is one I did to a co worker with great results.

    When they are away from their computer, take a print screen of their desktop and save it as their new desktop (I used control v in paint and saved as a jpeg, and then set that as their desk top. Then hide all the icons in a new folder. What you are left with is a screen that looks exactly the same as when they left, but the icons they see now are only pictures in the desktop, so they can click all they want and nothing will happen.

    Re: Fun ways to mess with people :)

    Here's another fun computer one, open up notepad and type
    shutdown -t XX -s -c "Blah blah"
    The XX is the amount of time in seconds you wish to give them before the computer will shutdown, -s simply tells it to shutdown, you can alternately use -r to restart it instead, and -c is the comment, so fill in whatever fun message you want.
    For example:
    shutdown -t 30 -s -c "Illegal hacking detected, computer shutting down."
    Note: The shutdown message cannot be very long.
    (To abort said shutdown, you can either do the same thing in another text file except have the code shutdown -a or you can run cmd, your command prompt, and type in shutdown -a)
    Once you have the short code line typed out to your satisfaction, simply save the file with a name the person is likely to click on and make sure you type the extension .bat
    For example Readme.bat
    Have fun!
    (For added stealth, you can change the icon to a game icon and rename it appropriately)

    i've successfully pulled that maneuver off on no less than 10 people in my life so far. it's hilarious.

    Go to work 2 hours early...put up fake police tape, draw the chalk outlines of a midget and two sheep...then hide in the bushes and watch people's reactions.

    Re: Fun ways to mess with people :)

    I usually do this one with my friends.

    I will come up with some random, unusual, and FALSE "factoid" Then mention it very briefly during a conversation. Then wait a few months for them to either repeat it to someone else when I'm around or mention it in passing again just to get the..."You know...I've heard that, too!" response.

    It's a long time to wait for a payoff, but it makes me smile

    Back when walmart still had layaway, I asked to put MnM's on layaway. Of course, the employee knew I was messing around. lol

    So my friend is obsessed with this band called the Aquabats. So my friend wrote a key-stroke program that would detect whenever he wrote "the aquabats" and then would shut down the whole computer.

    Needless to say, I was at his house the next day (after having installed the program with my other buddie the night before) and he went to ebay to look for merch.

    In about 20 seconds he was still laughing trying to figure it out.

    When I go out to eat with the girl I will get the bill and just leave a one dollar bill in the booklet thing. Then I wait and see how long the waiter/waitress takes to notice and come back to see what happens to the rest of the money.

    Here's my favorite.
    Ever been to like Red Lobster or something and have those random "managers" that come around and ask how your food is? They never have badges or name tags or anything else..

    So...

    Put on a button up shirt. Go to dinner. Halfway through, get up and start walking the restaurant asking about people's meals. See how long you can go before being asked to sit down or leave.

    Right so there I was on a very boring mid shift in munitions control by myself... long lonely 8 hours there... So I call up my buddy on the flight line who was the loader expediter (fancy military term for the loaders boss) and naturally he's bored too. So we get to talkin and I have him send out his two dumbest guys to pick up an ID10T form (not a real form, but a great way to call someone an idiot) so these two guys pick up the form and I send them to another shop where my buddies are in on the gag and they pick up a sealed onvelope to accompany the form. They take it all the way back across the flight line give it to thier boss he opens the onvelope and it is a nice letter stating how these two are the dumbest guys on base. The othe great one I've perpetrated is sending the new girl over to the cop kennels to get some K9P cleaner

    Nerd! I read Blah Blah Blah!!! I think I understood three words he typed...

    I like to get on an elevator and face the rear. I make eye contact with everyone and just enjoy the uncomfortable silence. When they start to get off I tell the person who maintained the most eye contact that they dropped their pocket and I point to the floor at their feet. They are usually so confused that they get flustered and just walk off.
