    Here's a little something to brighten up your day. One of my coworkers "introduced" me to this so I thought I'd pass it on.

    In MS Word, there is a function to autocorrect words so that if someone types "couldnt" it automatically replaces it with the correctly puncuated "couldn't". It also corrects spelling so that if you enter "respomd" it changes it to "respond".

    Here's where the fun comes in- you can manually add custom entries to make it automatically change things like "Sincerely" to "Up Yours" or "but" to "rump ranger". Also great for more subtle modifications like changing "level" to "evil" or "support" to "suppository".

    Here's how you do it:
    Open Word
    Go to Tools > Autocorrect
    Make sure the "Replace text as you type" is checked
    In the two boxes, put the word that you want to change and the word or phrase you want to replace it with.
    Click Add, and repeat for any other entries.
    Click OK when done.

    I like to switch the mouse buttons so the left button and right button work opposite.

    Go to the control panel and click on the mouse.

    Fun to watch them figure it out.

    Been there done that. I got an Air Force maintenance chief by changing his name to "Sponge Bob Square Pants"

    For a short while every document he typed had that at the bottom.;a
