Office worker stirs uproar with elaborate prank gone wrong: ‘How is that funny?’

One worker’s office prank went terribly wrong. They took to Reddit’s “Today I F***** Up” to share the story . The employee planted a phone speaker inside their workplace’s ceiling tiles and had it play an eight-hour video of cats meowing . The only trouble was their coworkers believed there were cats trapped in the ceiling. “I walked into the break room and several people were talking about the cat that must be in the ventilation system. I chuckled to myself,” they wrote. Then the prankster checked for more chatter in the office’s accounting department. “To my horror, half the ceiling tiles were removed and there were two maintenance men on ladders looking for the cat. They were real close to the speaker but hadn’t found it quite yet,” they said. “I just reversed out of there... They eventually found the speaker and shortly after everyone got an email from the big boss reprimanding the guilty party and asking for any information on the culprit”. Reddit users did not appreciate the jokester’s prank . “The fact you couldn’t foresee this outcome is itself pretty troubling,” someone said
