Ranted about that porn work prank.

Forgot a joke the senior linux engineer pulled with me.

I came back from the toilet and sat down. Logged in. Cursor was on the left screen. Looked away and then back. Cursor was on the right screen.

*wait what? hmm must be my memory.*
*looks away and turns back*
*wait did that cursor just move.....?*
*damn what's up with me...?!?*
*turns around and looks back VERY quickly*
*cursor moves all over the screen*

*looks at front usb inputs*
*notices a wireless receiver*

*laughing from the corner where the senior linux engineer is sitting*

MOTHERFUCKER.

    super late, but I did something like this a long time ago in high school in our computer class we were learning touch typing.

    Before my classmate, who sat to the left of me, got in I switched her mouse (lol they were both wired) with mine and I mimicked her movements, but would click on totally random things. She got frustrated and lost it, the whole time i was working my hardest to contain my smile/laugh. All was well until I bust out laughing. That was hilarious.

    I hadn't thought to do it in a professional setting, but I do have people that I'd like to troll on my team mwahahaha
