Prankster Employee Covers Her Bosses Office Entirely In Christmas Wrapping Paper
An employee who fancied a bit of a laugh got into the festive spirit by covering her boss' entire office in wrapping paper when they called in sick.
She went the whole hog, too.
This frankly stunning effort was the brainchild of Sydney-based author and podcaster Jo Thornely. She shared the video on her social media account with the caption: "My boss took the day off today, but might never again."
Well, as long as they recycle the paper, there's no harm done, right?
Speaking of which, they did - before you get in touch kicking off about it - use recyclable paper. No harm, no foul.
It's pretty garish and tacky paper, to be fair. It's covered in the kind of Christmas motif that you'd imagine: Santa Claus, reindeer, all of that.
Jo explained to Yahoo: "My workmate Jo and I bought the cheapest (recyclable) paper we could find, started on the big things and worked our way down to the details,
"Wrapping office chairs is a b**** of a job, but utterly worth it."
As you can probably imagine, the original tweet attracted quite a lot of attention. Most people were just straight-up amused at the whole thing, but others also chimed in to complement the attention to detail and commitment to the overall effect.
One Twitter user responded: "That is high quality pranking. Impressive attention to detail."
It sure is.
Another commented: "Well it looks like SOMEONE had a bit too much time on their hands! (Not to mention, an abundance of gift wrap)."
A third added: "You wrapped the office better than I can wrap anything."
Amen, friend. Amen.
There are still questions to be answered, however. Jo has yet to tell us how her boss reacted, or how long the whole process took.
We can only imagine that she was fine about it - if a little bit weirded out - and that it took literally forever.
It takes most of us ages to wrap a book, let along an entire office suite.
She's not the only one to have had this idea, either.
Just the other day a husband was threatened with divorce by his wife after he coated their entire kitchen with Christmassy paper.
It's a bit unfair, to be honest - she helped.
She wrote on Facebook: "My a***hole of a husband came up with the bright idea for us to wrap part of the kitchen for elf on the shelf.
"[Two] hours later and a divorce on the cards, it's done including the fruit, eggs, utensils and chopping board.
"Idiot even plugged the air freshener back in."
Fire hazard, surely?
