Friday office dares

This one is doing the email rounds at work. It’s probably been around
for a while in fact but it’s the first time I’ve seen it and I thought
it was funny. So just read it and shut up.

One-Point Dares
1. Ignore the first five people who say ‘good morning’ to you.
2. To signal the end of a conversation, clamp your hands over your
ears and grimace.
3. Leave your fly open for one hour. If anyone points it out, say,
‘Sorry, I really prefer it this way’.
4. Walk sideways to the photocopier.
5. While going in an elevator, gasp dramatically each time the doors open.
6. When in elevator with one other person, tap them on the shoulder
and pretend it wasn’t you.
7. Finish all your sentences with ‘In accordance with the prophecy…’
8. Don’t use any punctuation.
9. Interrupt your conversation with someone by giving a huge dejected sigh.
10. Use your highlighter pen on the computer screen.

Three-Point Dares

1. Say to your boss, ‘I like your style’, wink, and shoot him with
double-barrelled fingers.
2. Kneel in front of the water cooler and drink directly from the nozzle.
3. Shout random numbers while someone is counting.
4. Every time you get an email, shout ”email”.
5. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has got
over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
6. Keep hole punching your finger. Each time you do, shout, ‘dagnamit,
it’s happened again!’. Then do it again.
7. Introduce yourself to a new colleague as ‘the office bicycle’. Then
wink and pout.
8. Call I.T. helpdesk and tell them that you can’t seem to access any
pornography web sites.

Five-Point Dares
1. At the end of a meeting, suggest that, for once, it would be nice
to conclude with the singing of the national anthem (extra points if
you actually launch into it yourself).
2. Walk into a very busy person’s office and while they watch you with
growing irritation, turn the light switch on/off 10 times.
3. For an hour, refer to everyone you speak to as ‘Dave’.
4. Announce to everyone in a meeting that you ‘really have to go do a
number two’.
5. When you’ve picked up a call, before speaking finish off some fake
conversation with the words, ”she can abort it for all I care”.
6. After every sentence, say ‘Mon’ in a really bad Jamaican accent. As
in: ‘The report’s on your desk, Mon.’ Keep this up for one hour.
7. In a meeting or crowded situation, slap your forehead repeatedly
and mutter, ‘Shut up, damn it, all of you just shut up!’
8. At lunchtime, get down on your knees and announce, ‘As God is my
witness,I’ll never go hungry again!’
9. Repeat the following conversation 10 times to the same person: ‘Do
you hear that?’ ‘What?’ ‘Never mind, it’s gone now.’
10. Present meeting attendees with a cup of coffee and biscuit; smash
each biscuit with your fist.
11. During the course of a meeting, slowly edge your chair towards the door.
12. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.
13. Ask people what sex they are. Laugh hysterically after they answer.
14. Sign or p.p. all letters with your initials and a swastika.
15. Dry hump the photocopier. When someone spots you, stop and cough
embarrassingly, then lean in to the machine and whisper loudly, ‘I’ll
see you tonight’.
