Not extra creative but it helps to break the daily work routine: We keep playing little pranks on us all the time.



or attaching a GoPro to my dog:


But then again I work with two of my very best friends so the atmosphere is good anyway.

Had a hand in getting rid of our union president last friday... Said he wasn't going to run 2 machines at a time which was direct insubordination. Walked him out the door an hour later. Nothing like making an example out of the most untouchable employee on the floor. That makes me Smile.

Last Thursday I had this scene from the next Spiderman filming outside my window. They're always filming something here, but they spent ALL DAY just getting this Taurus on top of the taxi.

See link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squat_toilet

Also, FYI the middle-east is in Asia making them in fact Asian as a previous poster asked.

On another note, my work sucks because my Jag driving co-worker has an oral fixation and is always sucking on office supplies, smacking gum, making noise with his e-cig, and exhibits all around sloth like behavior. I've ordered him a shock collar and plan on training his habit out of him.Then I'm going to make him give me his bonus to thank me. Wish me luck!!

I hate people that make noises all day using some type of crap. Annoying as hell. Teach him a lesson! lol

I've had to use one of these before. Quite possibly the hardest/awkward thing to do in the world.

I do a lot of work in the M-E and I feel your pain. Needless to say, it's very important to get on a good "schedule" so that you can plan to be somewhere that has access to western style toilets when the need arises.
