lotion under the phone handle at their desk. They realize something is wrong immediately but have to collect themselves and keep their cool because they already picked up the phone.


IOnlyhave5_i_s

Back in the day it was KY under anything touched.

Beautiful


AcridSmoke

Read this a while ago on here. Screenshot wallpaper. Rotate the screenshot 180 degrees. Set as background. Rotate display orientation 180 degrees. Mayhem.


ebolatron

I did this one year when I was on night float over April fools. They never put me on night float on April 1 again! Also I set every Epic desktop icon to go straight to a Rick roll. If your call room has a toilet, pop-its under the toilet seat are also fun.


Dry_Shift5513

any context for why this is mayhem? Doesn’t 180 + 180 resemble them normal screen


squirrleyhooker

Mouse movements are all reversed. It does resemble a normal display


chubbymaster1

For further mayhem, change the cursor icon to an upside down cursor.


jonathanlurker

The desktop background looks normal from the person's POV, but everything else is upside down


blibbidyblam

Even a simple Ctr Alt [down arrow] will make their display upside down on most PCs. Simple, but effective.


MistahChang

I would page them to the city’s gentleman’s club, Shotgun Willies

Surgeons hate this one weird trick


SpecificHeron

Thickener in their coffee. Get some from SLP


aznsk8s87

ICU fellow did this to my coke in medschool. the team laughed and the attending made him buy me a new coke lol.


continuetodisappoint

I read this very differently at first lol


borborygmix4

Does it change the taste, or just thickens it?!


SpecificHeron

Just thickens it baby. Can also add it to a water bottle for delicious thickened water.


emzow

Does the thickened water take on any particular taste ?


sdststudent

A little bit but usually coffee has a strong enough taste to mask it. Put 2-3 thickeners in a normal size coffee mug and you’ll make the coffee take on the consistency of pudding/jello. It’s amazing lol


SpecificHeron

I’ve never had the pleasure of trying thickened water but I’ve gathered that it’s just like water (as in, tasteless), but gelatinous.


notshortenough

You're correct Source: have experimented with thickener packets before.


472mcat

The taste doesn’t really change, it’s mainly the texture that feels so wrong you wouldn’t even be able to finish a gulp of it without your senses freaking out. It’s as if the uncanny valley applied to liquids.


Atlas45216

Send a page while he’s on call with a call back from the local strip club


SerScruff

Fill an MSU specimen bottle with apple juice and attach a label with their name on it. Leave somewhere obvious like in a staff refrigerator.


AgentMeatbal

I have to compliment you on your classy name for what my institution refers to as a ~piss cup~


elegant-quokka

Michigan college rivalries are getting out of hand


70695

yes but the opposite.


CharcotsThirdTriad

A workstation with a few drops on the mouse.


michael_harari

Suture the sleeve of their white coat closed. Get a Bluetooth mouse and plug it into the back of his computer and move it a little bit when he's using his mouse Change his pager ring to the loudest and most annoying Send him a fake call schedule where he has 3x the call of anyone else


tellme_areyoufree

>Suture the sleeve of their white coat closed. > I would suggest sewing all the pockets closed instead. They'll go to put something in one and ... nope. Less obvious than the sleeve. More hilarious when their clipboard or pen drops to the floor. (Less hilarious if it's their iPhone but you know the risks if you're in a prank war)


TelmisartanGo0d

Have them call the pharmacy for a drug that doesn’t exist


merendal_rendar

“Yes, I’m trying to order some ligmacillin for my patient, but I don’t see it in the EMR?”


bobs_your_peduncle

Sugammadex is such an unfortunately named drug


Capital_Track_8026

Make sure it sounds rly funny too


Somali_Pir8

Put something of theirs (of minimal value) in the tube system with a sticky note with a phone number to call when received so they have to go get it

truthandreality23

That's so funny, omg


merendal_rendar

One of my co-interns used to page our senior but make it look like the page was coming from the ED, and our senior would waste time calling the ED asking for who paged him. Gave us some time to write notes or do random crap


DiverticularPhlegmon

Used to blind page my senior with increasingly demanding messages that the patient in 40 needed a bowel regimen/family call/whatever with no callback number (not while we were sleeping obviously) and wait


grey-doc

My senior is so damn glad I never thought of this. I would so have done it any time they were on service.


Metaforze

Like 1 extra minute? 😂


merendal_rendar

He would get angry and spend like 10 minutes trying to find the person that paged him 🤷‍♂️


righteous_righthand

Replace anything in frames with "voided" copies or other items...photos, licenses, diplomas. Take a roller off the chair. Remove their desk and leave a ransom note/photo of where to find it. Take their favorite pen and send a ransom photo.


GoldenJakkal

Kidnap his children and leave a ransom photo


moose_md

Only works if they’re not a neurosurgery resident

Rectal use only stickers


Local_Isopod_

This is completely unhinged and will only work well if you're very close with your coworker. Like, close enough to have their address. You know how you can send gifts over Amazon? You can remove the gift receipt. Anonymously send something weird through the gifting option, like a package of tiny plastic babies. Wait about a week. Send another package. Keep sending tiny plastic babies (or weird object of your choosing) every once in a while. Be sure to remove the gift receipt. On the outside, it will look like they ordered the package. Obviously they didn't, so they'll be confused. Act like you have no idea what's going on. Let it keep happening. For $10 a month you can absolutely baffle your coworkers, because those tiny plastic babies will inevitably be brought to work because they end up everywhere. ~~We ended up bartering with those tiny plastic babies at my first job. They ended up travelling around the world because there were some in my luggage. It's like glitter, but weirder.~~


borborygmix4

...I may keep this for future reference, seems like it may have a place and time :)


sleepyturtl3

LOL I will need to try this


D15c0untMD

I have read an amazon review on small babies picturing this prank between a woman and her fiance


rovar0

You can do a lot of stuff with the cursor. Make it giant sized, change the color, or my personal favorite: reverse the left and right mouse button.


potatoheadsleftball

Jump them in the parking lot


dawson203

Put his stapler inside jello


Cobalt60blues

jello inside the stapler as a backup plan


whitewateriver

Pager in jello


southbysoutheast94

GIA 45 load in jello with a ski tip


jhusky

Just kiss already.


Wheresmydelphox

I feel like this is an undervalued response and should get more appreciation. Then again, they could have JD and Turk energy, "guy love" but not guy loooooooovve.


Slatebluesky

If you still use pagers then page them "low batt" repeatedly. Shoot some hand sanitizer in a glove, then replace it in glove box prior to their procedure. Or just randomly


Parking-Breadfruit83

Take an empty paper towel roll, then wet it with water; then squish it and mold it until it looks like a giant turd. Place it on their chair.


Gomer94

Or in a bed pan just casually chilling somewhere


srgnsRdrs2

The little Debbie brownies work much better. Especially if they have nuts. Sincerely, The middle schooler in me


jxl013

Set up iv line under work desk with atomizer pointed outward. Connect other end of iv line to a syringe of mannitol. Squirt liberally. Enjoy results.


imnosouperman

Fake parking ticket. Amazon sells pretty cool ones.

Bigassdildos.com prank package. Have delivered to them at work.

What are the chances your co-resident also sees this post?


borborygmix4

Zero :)


borborygmix4

Post is not 100% accurate, and they don't use Reddit


13Hackslasher

You'll need help from the nurses, but we put in joke orders for another resident/joke orders under another residents name, like wash x patients ass etc.


asteroidhyalosis

Got into a zip-tie war once. Laptop zipped closed, labcoats, filing cabinets, etc. Eventually drove my friend slightly insane by stating he had a zip-tie somewhere on his car - there was no zip-tie.


Pumpkin8645

I feel like a stapler in jello would be a great morning laugh


D15c0untMD

Make hole in papercup right under where they drink, lifts cup to mouth, drip drip drip

Steal their list

My guy there’s a whole show about this, watch the office and update us whenever you choose one

Replace the contents of a hand sanitizer bottle with K-Y jelly


emilynna

Take their car keys and move their car to a different parking spot


Moof_the_dog_cow

If a surgical specialty, grab some silk suture and sew the cuffs of their white coats closed.


OrganicBenzene

Apparently “back in the day”, nitro paste on the collar of a white coat was pretty good, and often retaliated with Lasix in the coffee. Probably good everything is in the Pyxis now


Sephy765

Overhead page them to a random room in the hospital.


FragrantCatch818

Take a syringe of Rocuronium and inject them with it. Laugh as they suffocate


ChemistryFan29

Call of the prank war, Please trust me when I say this, the only thing that will happen is that you two clowns will isculate it and it will not end well. I once volunteered in a hospital that lets say guy A put mouse traps in the guys B drawer, and this guy got hurt and had a hard time doing his work, So he retaliates by putting goop in to guy's A drawer, and underneath the mouse. Guess what, The janitorial services saw that and set off a quarantined on the whole floor because it looked like a serious fungal infection. So guy A decides to mess with Guy's B gloves and then guy B gets cut while doing a minor operation with a knife. So guy B is bleeding all over the place on the finger. Both clowns got fired, and got sued. So stop the war ok.


grey-doc

Or you could, you know, not be a dick about the pranks. (Lots of the pranks on this thread are dick moves. Funny, but dick moves. It does take some discretion and creativity to prank without being a dick.)


borborygmix4

Ya...honestly I was thinking elf-on-the-shelf next XD


grey-doc

Somebody suggested pop-its under the toilet seat ... as somebody who has used pop-its as a prank, and put gunpowder in someone's cigarette as a prank, I would absolutely never not even once even begin to consider a pop-it in a bathroom in a hospital setting. There will be an investigation, the cameras will be reviewed, you will be fired. It's hilarious to think about, but anyone who seriously attempts something like this would be appropriately removed from medical practice. Elf on a shelf, OK (maybe, context is everything). Hand sanitizer inside examination gloves, not OK.


expert_worrier

Finally some rationality here. We are out of the kindergarten, people; please behave like the responsible adults you are supposed to be.


Noctiluca334

Send a page with just a phone number to the local strip club


MaddestDudeEver

Lasix or Lactulose in the coffee


Lonelyparrot

How about both??

Jim Halpert should have some tips for you!

Dont you guys have access to medical supplies and meds?


farbs12

Give him a brojob. “It’s just a prank bro”


knight_rider_

Can't tell if this is real. I would strongly urge you to abandon this immediately. Things like this are all fun and games until somone accidentally takes it too far (or gets caught first taking it too far) and now you're facing disciplinary issues. You're not in school anymore - workplace harassment laws are now a VERY REAL thing. Have your fun BUT BE CAREFUL.

Put his stapler In jello 👍🏽


drdodo-88

An oxygen tubing below the desk, attached to it on your side a large 50cc syringe with water.


dinabrey

If they leave their computer on and step out, I’d change some of their frequently used dot phrases.


gassbro

Rig an open saline syringe under their chair so when they sit down it squirts their backside.
