and look suspiciously at everyone who looks at you.

3. When your computer is turned off, complain to the monitor on

you evilly.

5. Before anyone else is in the lab, connect each computer to
different screen than the one it’s set up with.

top-secret Pentagon files.

they’re crazy while typing.

required, pray
“Ohpleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease,” and scream “YES!” when it
finishes.

Type by hitting the keys with the straw.

20. If you’re sitting in a swivel chair, spin around singing “The
Lion Sleeps Tonight” whenever there is processing time required.

it to your monitor. Try to seduce it. Act like it hates you and then
complain loudly that women (men) are worthless.

you.

26. Stare at the screen, grind your teeth, stop, look at the person

ends, cut them and deposit them on your neighbor’s keyboard as you
leave.

28. Put a large, gold framed portrait of the British Royal Family
on your desk and loudly proclaim that it inspires you.

and place them of top of the monitor. Remove socks layer by layer and

do this, ask: “Does *your* delete key work?” Shake your head, and
resume hitting the space bar on your keyboard. Keep doing this until

time. No wonder it wasn’t deleting! Ha!” Print out your document and
leave.

funeral.

22. Hold a raffle, offering your roommate as first prize. If he/she
protests, tell him/her that it’s all for charity.

23. Make cue cards for your roommate. Get them out whenever
you’d like to have a conversation.

24. Set up about twenty plants in an organized formation. When
your roommate walks in, pretend to be in the middle of delivering
a speech to the plants. Whisper to them, “We’ll continue this later,”
while eyeing your roommate suspiciously.

25. Keep some worms in a shoebox. When doing homework, go
and consult with the worms every so often. Then become angry,
shouting at the worms that they’re stupid and they don’t know what
they’re talking about.

19 Ways to Confuse Santa Claus

19 Ways To Confuse Santa Claus

1. Instead of milk and cookies, leave him a salad, and a note explaining
that you think he could stand to lose a few pounds.

2. While he’s in the house, go find his sleigh and write him a speeding
ticket.

3. Leave him a note, explaining that you’ve gone away for the holidays. Ask
if he would mind watering your plants.

4. While he’s in the house, replace all his reindeer with exact replicas.
Then wait and see what happens when he tries to get them to fly.

5. Keep an angry bull in your living room. If you think a bull goes crazy
when he sees a little red cape, wait until he sees that big, red Santa
suit!

6. Build an army of mean-looking snowmen on the roof, holding signs that
say “We hate Christmas,” and “Go away Santa.”

7. Leave a note by the telephone, telling Santa that Mrs. Claus called and
wanted to remind him to pick up some milk and a loaf of bread on his way
home.

8. Throw a surprise party for Santa when he comes down the chimney. Refuse
to let him leave until the strippers arrive.

9. While he’s in the house, find the sleigh and sit in it. As soon as he
comes back and sees you, tell him that he shouldn’t have missed that last
payment, and take off.

10. Leave a plate filled with cookies and a glass of milk out, with a note
that says, “For The Tooth Fairy. :) “ Leave another plate out with half a
stale cookie and a few drops of skim milk in a dirty glass with a note that
says, “For Santa.”

11. Take everything out of your house as if it’s just been robbed. When
Santa arrives, show up dressed like a policeman and say, “Well, well. They
always return to the scene of the crime.”

12. Leave out a copy of your Christmas list with last-minute changes and
corrections.

13. While he’s in the house, cover the top of the chimney with barbed wire.

14. Leave lots of hunting trophies and guns out where Santa’s sure to see
them. Go outside, yell, “Ooh! Look! A deer! And he’s got a red nose!” and
fire a gun.

15. Leave Santa a note, explaining that you’ve moved. Include a map with
unclear and hard-to-read directions to your new house.

16. Set a bear trap at the bottom of the chimney. Wait for Santa to get
caught in it, and then explain that you’re sorry, but from a distance, he
looked like a bear.

17. Leave out a Santa suit, with a dry-cleaning bill.

18. Paint “hoof-prints” all over your face and clothes. While he’s in the
house, go out on the roof. When he comes back up, act like you’ve been
“trampled.” Threaten to sue.

19. Instead of ornaments, decorate your tree with Easter eggs. Dress up
like the Easter Bunny. Wait for Santa to come and then say, “This
neighborhood ain’t big enough for the both of us.”

12 Ways to Get Rid of a Telemarketer

1. If they want to loan you money, tell them you just filed for bankruptcy and
you could sure use some money. Ask, “How long can I keep it? Do I have to
ever pay it back, or is it like the other money I borrowed before my
bankruptcy?”

2. If you get one of those pushy people who won’t shut up, just listen to their
sales pitch. When they try to close the sale, tell them that you’ll need to go get
your credit card. Then, just set the phone down and go do laundry, shopping or
whatever. See how long that commission based scum waits for you to get your
credit card.

3. If they start out with, “How are you today?” say, “Why do you want to
know?” Or you can say, “I’m so glad you asked, because no one seems to care
these days and I have all these problems, my sciatica is acting up, my eyelashes
are sore, my dog just died”¦.” When they try to get back to the sales process, just
continue on with telling about your problems.

4. If the person says he’s Joe Doe from the ABC Company, ask him to spell his
name, then ask him to spell the company name, then ask where it is located.
Continue asking personal questions or questions about the company for as long
as necessary.

5. This one works better if you are male: Telemarketer: “Hi, my name is Julie
and I’m with Dodger & Peck Services”¦. You: “Hang on a second.” (few seconds
pause) “Okay, (in a really husky voice) what are you wearing?”

6. Crying out, in well-simulated tones of pleasure and surprise, “Julie!! Is this
really you? I can’t believe it! Julie, how have you BEEN?” Hopefully, this will
give Julie a few brief moments of terror as she tries to figure out where the heck
she could know you from.

7. Say, “No,” over and over. Be sure to vary the sound of each no, and keep an
even tempo even as they’re trying to speak. This is the most fun if you can keep
going until they hang up.

8. If MCI calls trying to get you to sign up with their Family and Friends plan,
reply, in as sinister a voice as you can muster, “I don’t have any friends”¦would
you be my friend?”

9. If they clean rugs: “Can you get blood out, you can? Well, how about goat
blood or HUMAN blood ““ chicken blood too?”

10. Let the person go through their spiel, providing minimal but necessary
feedback in the form of an occasional “Uh-huh, really, or, “That’s fascinating.”
Finally, when they ask you to buy, ask them to marry you. They get all flustered,
but just tell them you couldn’t give your credit card number to someone who’s a
complete stranger.

11. Tell them you work for the same company they work for. Example:
Telemarketer: “This is Bill from Widget & Associates.” You: “Widget &
Associates!! Hey I work for them too. Where are you calling from?”
Telemarketer: “Uh, Dallas, Texas.” You: “Great, they have a group there too?
How’s business/the weather? Too bad the company has a policy against selling
to employees! Oh well, see ya.”

12. Tell the Telemarketer you are busy and if they will give you their phone
number you will call them back. If they say they are not allowed to give out
their number, then ask them for their home number and tell them you will call
them at home (this is usually the most effective method of getting rid of
Telemarketers). If the person says, “Well, I don’t really want to get a call at
home,” say, “Yeah! Now you know how I feel.” (smiling, of course”¦)
