My colleague and I are in a battle to hide a silly stress toy in each other's work spaces. Help me think of creative ways to get it to him!
I work at a small company (~20 people), and a couple of weeks ago one of those popping martian stress dolls
showed up in our office. I have a slight aversion to it, which my work-friend found very amusing. He started putting it on my desk while I wasn't around, and I would respond by putting it on his.
A few days later: this has escalated into a battle of sneaking the toy into each other's work spaces for the other person to find later on. It has shown up in my desk drawer, behind his trash can, behind my computer monitor, on TOP of his computer monitor. Today he upped the ante by FedEx'ing the thing to my desk in an envelope. Help me think of creative ways to get this thing back into his hands!
Some things to consider:
• We don't have individual offices or cubicles: it's one communal space with all of our desks out in the open
• Here is a picture of our desk setups
– there is space under our monitors, a little tray to collect office supplies, and two drawers at each desk.
• The only other assigned personal space in our office are cubbies in the printer room
The office is egging us both on by this point and posting photos of our pranks in different places online. It can extend beyond the office – I have thought of sneaking it into his gym's locker room somehow – but it would be most entertaining if our coworkers were around to witness these.
Thanks in advance!
