I am a new start at a large public accounting firm and have heard some funny stories about seniors and managers pranking new hires. I heard about a manger who made a ver elaborate test for employee comp to reconcile the number of employees with the number of cars in the parking lot. It involved telling the intern to come back for third shift (around 2AM) to count those cars as well. If he saw someone get dropped off, it was 0.75 employees. He subtracted one if he saw someone leave. I also heard about a senior who convienced an intern to schedule a time with the controller to count goodwill. Needless to say the controller had a good laugh.
