Yesterday, Brad, Katie and I devised our plan and made preparations. This morning, we arrive at the office before 7am and put the plan in action. We replaced everything possible in Mark's office with cardboard replicas. Cardboard chair, computer, printer, keyboard, mouse, telephone, stapler, calculator, business cards, framed pictures, thermostat, newspaper... everything! We couldn't be so bold at Alicia's desk, so we just did a lot of little things: popcorn in her drawer, paperclips and hole-punched paper pieces, switched all the caps on her pens (a pet peave of hers), flipped her floor mat upside down, replaced her family pictures with pictures of us, added appointments to her Outlook calendar (9:00 apologize to interns, 10:00 bring interns ice cream, 11:00 give interns a hug)... and more!
It was a great prank war and we all had a good laugh and called it even. However, every time we walk by Alicia's front desk, she eyes us suspiciously and we wouldn't be surprised if they kept the prank war going either. I think the interns won the 1st battle, though!
