This Hilarious Office Prank Reveals the Dangers of Going on Vacation

Your workstation will be transported to 1985.

A photo that has gone viral on Reddit shows the way a bunch of bored employees "upgraded" their co-workers hardware while he was on vacation.

According to a recent study, 52 percent of Americans are still not using all of their vacation days from work, which is a shame, given that those who make the most of their time off report feeling much happier with their jobs, company, relationships, physical well-being, and life in general. But there's at least one perk to not leaving the office: your coworkers can't pull a prank on you like the one making the rounds on the Internet right now.

On Monday, Reddit user Kaerval posted a photo of the way a bunch of co-workers "upgraded" the hardware on an employee's desk while he was on vacation, and it's pretty hysterical.

As satisfying as it would be to see the look on his face when he returns and realizes his desk has been transported back to 1985, they're actually hoping that he'll discover the prank on Reddit since he frequents the site. So far, he doesn't seem to have seen it, but since it's now on the front page of Reddit, the chances are looking good.
