At the hubby's place of employment, they were all issued new laptops this week. The new laptops are all outfitted with fingerprint recognition technology. This week everyone was scheduled to have all their data migrated from their old machines to their new ones.
One fellow was out of the office most of the week, just coming in for the first time today, so naturally Jerry hatched a prank against him. Under the pretext of warning him of the frustrations that were inherant in the migration process (and there actually were numerous problems and glitches), Jerry sent him an email (backed up by the director) alerting him that the new series of laptops received after Tuesday, were actually installed not with fingeprint recognition but with an upgraded technology.
This fellow was then instructed to make sure that he remove his glasses or contacts and make sure that he got right up to the sensor on his laptop with his right eye in order that the security system was imbedded properly.
Jerry was all pumped to see this prank played out today, but it turns out this guy has been working with Jerry for too long and smelled his fingerprints all over this one. He didn't fall for it.
But, as the initial email made the rounds, several other people were taken in by it, and were all caught redfaced as they attempted to get their iris recognition security system to work and, failing at it, called IT to complain.
They have way too much fun at work, I think.
