11. PRESSING EVERY BUTTON

“Working in a 13-story building, I would often press every button on my way out on the ground floor. Only did this when alone, and no one was entering on the ground floor. So some poor guy would get on at floor 2 or 3 and have to stop at every floor on the way up.

Last time I did this, stepped out of the elevator and some guy rounded the corner in a hurry, saw the doors closing, and bolted to get into the elevator. All I heard from behind me was OH COME ON JESUS CHRIST. He knew.”

12. SWINGIN’ THE KEYS

“When I’m leaving a busy store with a crowded parking lot, I’ll often times take my keys out of my pocket and swing them around as I head to a car that’s parked in a prime location. As soon as the vultures begin to circle and queue up for that sweet sweet king spot, I breeze right past the car and enjoy the look of frustration on their faces as I make my way to my actual parking spot.

I used to work across the street from a Whole Foods in the downtown area of a major city, and I would do this every time I walked back to work from eating lunch there. The parking situation was especially bad on the street level there, so people would get visibly pissed when they saw I wasn’t even parked anywhere in the lot.”

17. THE KEYPAD TRICK

“At my last place of work we had one of those mechanical lock things with a number pad. I’d always press a random number after going through it so the next person would get the code wrong the next time and they’d need to try it again. Sometimes I’d hang around to watch it happen, it always cheered me up.”

19. TOILET KETCHUP

“I don’t do it anymore, but for years I would go in the bathroom of fast food restaurants and put ketchup packets under the nubs between the bowl and the toilet seat. For no reason. Years man.

Then the inevitable happened. I went to a McDonalds just before closing. Got myself a Big Mac. Next morning, I got up early and stopped in the same McDonald’s for a breakfast sandwich. Stopped by the bathroom to drop a deuce. I guess the employees there don’t clean the restrooms at the end of the day.

I was wearing white. I deserved it. All of it.”
