  • Funny moment at Allegra:  Over the years there have been many funny moments at Allegra - our team never lets things get too boring around here. Our top prankster had been playing tricks on the whole staff for a good three weeks or so - things like taping all of your items on your desk down, filling up the drawers with packing peanuts, parking his car so close to yours that you can't get in. So one day all the girls decided to take revenge: they took cases of scrap envelopes and packed his car full - he couldn't even get in it! It was funny! Of course, I had nothing to do with it, but did enjoy the look on his face. Needless to say, he stopped pranking everyone else, at least for a while.
