I just found out my father got layed off. He has over 20 yrs with the company and was going to retire in 18 months. His job is being outsourced to India. He is not stressed, as he has 60 days to find another job. I have enlightend him to the need to pull an office prank on his younger co workers/ team members who are still working there. When I brought up the idea, his response was "like wear a constume to work on the last day?"
I was thinking about something with a little more comedic umph.

Any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks

ooohhh... that reminds me: Indian Tacos for the boss's car.

Ingredients:
Old, nasty, most expired food in your fridge
Aluminum foil
M80
tape
cigarette

Prepa­ration: Make container out of aluminum foil (probably 2-3 layers), fill with expired food, tape M80 on the side, poke a hole in the cigarette and slide it over the wick of the M80. PLace it on the windshield, or preferrably inside a rolled down window. Light the cigarette and walk into work

Hes not like me, he is more level headed and not interested in suing. I just want him to go out with a bang and have a chuckle when he thinks about the last day.

How about an civil suit claiming discrimination - over 40 years old is a protected class per US Federal law. Look up lawyers specializing in discrimination, sounds like a slam-dunk million dollar case if the company laid him off to outsource his job to India. He should have been retrained or offered another position.




Really?


I turn 40 in March and have 22 years in with the comapany I work for.

Sorry, my fault. An "upper decker" is where you ... hm, how to put this gently ... effectuate a bowel movement in the tank of a toilet, as opposed to the conventional orifice for said activity.
