How to Pull Off the Office Bathroom Prank

Make sure you use the facilities before you put this office bathroom trick into hilarious effect.


  • Step 1: Get some slacks Get one pair of slacks and one pair of shoes for every stall in your office bathroom.
  • TIP: You can raid your own closet, or stock up on inexpensive slacks and shoes at a local second-hand clothing store.
  • Step 2: Stuff them Stuff each pair of slacks, from the knee down, with old newspaper. Don’t overstuff the pants, or they won’t look like ‘believable’ legs.
  • Step 3: Position them Position a pair of shoes in each stall.
  • Step 4: Set up Position a pair of stuffed pants atop each pair of shoes. Arrange the top of the pants to fall just right – so it looks like someone is sitting on the toilet with his pants down.
  • Step 5: Lock Lock each stall door from the inside.
  • Step 6: Start a rumor Start a rumor that there’s a stomach bug going around the office that is keeping people on the john.
  • Step 7: Enjoy Enjoy the chaos that ensues as increasingly desperate people try to figure out who is hogging the bathroom.
  • FACT: If you tie a wet piece of paper towel over an automatic faucet sensor, the water will run freely for you.
