When I accepted Tommy’s offer to join the CarWoo! team, I was warned that these folks don’t always follow traditional office decorum. Trip to Vegas on my first day, launch parties with Hummers, awesome Mom bloggers and plastering my dress with CarWoo! stickers at BlogWorld – I expected these things (kind of ). But I most definitely do not recall being asked about my balloon blowing skills during my interviews.
Friday was Tommy and Erik’s last day of a 2-week trip to Vegas, and, as such, it was agreed upon by all that an office prank was necessary to greet them upon their return.We considered covering their work areas with cups of water, super gluing their desks to the wall, etc. etc., but, finally, a recently-wed “customer evangelist” who shall remain anonymous suggested balloons. 500 balloons to be more precise.
If you’re interested in delighting your office with a similar project, simply follow the directions below.
(Note: CarWoo! is not responsible for any and all issues such as lightheadedness, fainting or loss of chi that result from the blowing up of too many balloons.)
Five easy steps to welcoming your coworkers home, CarWoo! style:
- Take apart coworkers’ desks
- Blow up 500 balloons. This make take a couple of hours and a coffee break-ola may be needed.
- Fill a spare room with coworkers’ desks and all said balloons
- Watch coworkers freak out, steal others’ desks, and hit balloons with golf clubs
Final Note: Expect to work around the scent of “fresh balloon” for a few days and prepare your ears for plenty of random pops.
My next blog post may not be so light, but if the past ten days have been any indication, CarWoo! is going to blow up bigtime (who knew you could make so many balloon puns?), and I’m pretty sure I heard talk of revenge from Tommy and Erik. Until then, hit me up on our Facebook or Twitter page – I talk back!
